I have a love affair with flannel suitings, wool ties, and other fabrics and items that have texture. It’s one of the reasons I love fall and winter clothing so much more than spring and summer – the fabrics have much more surface interest, which in addition to color and pattern adds another element of depth and contrast to liven up an outfit subtly.
