verb (used with object), tex·tur·ized, tex·tur·iz·ing.
It may not sound like it, but texturize IS actually a world, not just something made up by George W. Bush during his presidency. My definition, however, refers to the action of adding texture to one's outfit through unexpected means: e.g., a pair of lace-textured oxblood jeans, leather jacket, and peep-toe mesh booties. The mix of textures is subtle but scrumptious, adding enough interest to keep a patterned button-down fresh and fun. Mix velvet, silk, corduroy, leather, fur, denim, and more until desired effect is achieved.
Also, how cute is this? My photographer and I both happened to be wearing these Zara pants when we met up! Don't you love how Betty styled hers?
