The Fall 2010 runway practically screams “TOUCH ME!” This coming season seems to be all about texture. From silk and knit ruffles, to feathers, faux furs, velvet, velour, shearling, sequins, lace, and anything just plain fuzzy these trends feel (literally) cozier (and a little crazier) than ever.
Having grown up somewhat of a marked “girly girl” I have always had a certain affinity for ruffles and all things sparkly. With that being said, you can imagine my excitement when sequin leggings and ruffled sweaters started popping up here and there across websites and printed pages alike. If there is one thing magazines and fashion blogs have agreed on, it’s that texture takes the cake for this season’s must have trends. You won’t hear me complaining.

I particularly like the way ruffle blouses are peeping out of cardigan sweaters in earthy jewel tones and contrasting textures. This season makes me swoon.
