Theory:

Adjectives describe the quality/features/quantity of the noun in the sentence. Adjectives give additional information about the noun in the sentence. It can modify the noun to denote quality, to indicate its quantity, order or extent, or can act as a complementing verb (action word).
Example:
1. She had a beautiful dress in her closet.

Here, the adjective has been used to define the quality of the dress.
 
2. She had a silky dress in her closet.
In this statement, the noun (dress) is described by the adjective (silky).
Here, the adjective has been used to define the feature of the dress.
