runway to real life: TEXTURE

Fall '09 is all about texture!  Designers are mixing different fabrics together to create a voluminous, 3-dimensional look.  But how do you interpret runway style into your real life?  There is no better way to add texture than with a great knit!  Purp7e has some interesting knits available on right now that are different but still very wearable.  Check out how you can take these textured looks from runway to real life:

The shredded/see through look is definitely continuing into fall.  Get this look with the Purp7e Shredded Turtlenck in Black or Taupe.

Three words: hood, scarf, fringe.  With the Purp7e's Hooded Scarf (in Taupe or Peacock) you get all three looks rolled into one!  Create extra texture by wearing this scarf (hood up) over a cowl or turtleneck and leave it long and loose instead of tying it around your neck.

Wide scarves, like the Purp7e Shredded Scarf in Eggplant or Taupe, are such a smart purchase because you get two looks for the price of one.  Wear it as a traditional scarf or throw it around your shoulders for a wrap/shawl look.  Create extra texture by wearing a wide scarf as a wrap around a jacket!
