I think textures are the most important way to take what you wear from ordinary to chic. It can be anything from pants, to sweaters, ties or blazers (even socks)--adding textures to your wardrobe can make a world of difference.
Take an ordinary blue tie, for example. Everyone has a blue tie. But add a thick wooly tie into the mix and you go from typical to stylish in one move.
- Speckled colors don't hurt either.
- A cold front doesn't mean packing on ten pounds and wearing a peacoat everywhere you go. Layer up with wool and you'll be good to go.
- Camel and blue is excellent.
