From cashmere, silk, suede, wool, leather, chiffon and satin, finding the beautiful balance is what makes the fall/winter season so much fun to wear. Have a look at the many ways a variety textures can be styled.

I love the pink sweater in the first picture and the mulberry bag! Nice post!

I agree, Outside Looking In! :-) In fact, I love all of these, but perhaps my favourite is the camel coat over the black dress (but then perhaps just my Parisian prejudice!). I think what makes this selection of photos so very special is that the clothes EXUDE quality: true investment dressing, and you're right the Mulberry bag is made of wonderfully thick leather. I'd love to own it!

The pink sweater looks oh so warm and cuddly, but I'd rather it was in mohair or cashmere than angora. I LOVE the look of angora, it's just that I've never found a way to stop it pilling. I've tried all the time-worn solutions, like putting it in the freezer(!), but nothing seems to work. Do any of you lovely SLL friends know of something that REALLY deals with the pilling problem?

One of the things I love about Autumn and Winter; suede and silk, cords and cashmere, leather and lace!

@La Francaise: I have the same problem and the only way to help this that I found is to "shave" the pills with a sweater shaver. Which of course weakens the knit and the sweater is not as fluffy anymore so it is not an optimal solution. I love the angora but forgo it because of the shedding. If I wear it with darker colors, in a few minutes I look unsightly. The only way is to wear it with same or similar colors or something that doesn't attract the hairs, like leather or satin.

Love the black dress and beige coat and the grey sweater with black scarf. Must try out the combinations.
