Do you know what an ensemble with long layers can do for a girl? Let Leandra Medine tell you: “This outfit will make you feel like the most slender woman to ever walk the earth, as it so graciously conceals all the shit you probably want concealed but also makes you feel cool.” Well said. Notice how the top makes a long, slimming vertical line and how showing only a sliver of your legs makes them look svelte? That’s the slender part. Notice how having a longer middle layer feels a bit unexpected, and therefore awesome? That’s the cool part. Basically it’s a recipe for outfit excellence.
