This outfit is an example of tactile texture. This means that the texture can be felt as opposed to visual texture where it is only felt. The dress is made of tweed which is a rough fabric. Since the fabric is bulky, it makes the body look as though it is larger than it actually is. Also, there is emphasis created by the texture because the dress has an open collar drawing attention to the neckline. The texture gives a casual message whereas a texture like silk would give a formal message.
