The Art of Layering


Refinery29 shows us how it's done with the help of one of our past cover girls, Margaret Zhang

With winter in the air in the Southern Hemisphere and long summer nights being enjoyed in the North, we turn to the highly coveted skill of stylish layering.

And who better to showcase some of the best examples than online fashion bible, Refinery29.

These fabulous street shots are part of a series in their latest New York Times bestselling book, Style Stalking, which also features chapters on mixed prints, good vintage, bright, black, metallics and more.
