The Best Way To Layer Your Clothes

Spring sounds so deceptively cheerful. Even though we all picture blue skies, warm breezes, and happy little afternoon showers, spring is kind of turning out to still have plenty of winter in it. As irritating as that is, there is an upside — dressing in layers. Piling on pieces in an outfit is the perfect way to add your own personal touch or creativity to a look, all while staying warm and prepared for the totally inconsistent weather that the season has to offer. Take some inspiration from how these 11 celebrities layer and stay stylish all at the same time.
