If you fear your outfit may begin to err on the side of an art school project, take a gander at today's images. Fashion favourites like Veronika Heilbrunner, Chiara Ferragni, and Leandra Medine show us how to incorporate the perfect amount of dimension via fun textures like fringe, lace, and frays.

Though usually reserved for ultra-feminine silhouettes, Mytheresa.com Senior Fashion Editor Veronika Heilbrunner layered her chantilly lace dress in a truly unexpected way—over pants. She further toughened up her look with a pair of her signature sneakers.

Though feathers were a prominent trend for fall, they also work nicely in spring when worn in a pale colour pallette.
