Unexpected layering

I find this pre-fall trend image from Elizabeth and James really inspiring.

Elizabeth and James’ polyester jacquard vest; silk polyester top; cotton, polyester, acetate and acrylic skirt, with polyester and acetate pants.

I am all about drawing from the wardrobe you have to reproduce fashion images with much higher price tags. One of my goals into the future is to take more fashion risks - why not layer a corset over a t-shirt over a wool skirt over skinny pants with boots? I can think of a couple combos in my closet I would like to try, and even if they don't make it out the front door, at least I tried. Over time it will probably lead to more daring choices being made overall.
