What is a Texture Pack?

In Minecraft, a texture pack determines what the texture of the blocks, items and mobs in your Minecraft world will look like. In the latest versions of Minecraft, texture packs are now called resource packs and can now contain custom sounds as well as custom textures.

This is what your world would look like with the classic Minecraft texture pack:
