41 Ways to Layer for 50-Degree Weather

A scientific exploration

02.28.17

All the best things are layered: croissants, Cate Blanchett in a tragic role, our bodies in the early spring. Whereas warm climates are hostile to them and cold climates are too demanding of them, layers thrive in 50-degree weather. It’s an incontrovertible truth! A cardigan over a sweater, a henley under a dress, a trench over a Canadian tux…under what other conditions would this mid-level layering be Goldilocks-levels of good? It’s exactly why transitional dressing is so fun. You get to play with lots of pieces with less concern for utility.

Over the past week, photographer Simon Chetrit has been out and about in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood shooting humans in their natural habitat to capture this peak layering phenomenon, which occurs just twice a year in New York, between winter and spring and then again between summer and fall. Click through above for his dissertation, captured in 41 outfits.
