There are so many textures that one can play with when it comes to clothing, that’s the amusing and electrifying part of styling outfits. This seems to be the new trend as well, as fashion designers this past fashion month have presented collections with materials such as velvet, leather, silk, patent, and suede. It’s fairly simple to incorporate a different fabric – like a statement patent skirt – in your closet than the plain old cotton or acrylic (although there’s nothing wrong with that), but why not shake it up a little? It’s definitely a fantastic way to make one’s outfit more dynamic and fun.
There’s nothing more charming than eating a wonderful meal with people you love and taking a stroll after – especially when you’re in Paris and you have the Seine right at your feet. In any case, this is how I felt on a cold January afternoon when I was back home for winter break. The polluted Parisian sky gave off a particular light that makes one feel lighthearted, blissful, and simply in good spirits. Even better, there were hardly any people around, which made the experience a lot more delightful.
