So, Margaret Zhang Is Sticking to This New Outfit Formula

If anyone knows how to pull off intricate layering, its Australian It girl Margaret Zhang. Snapped this week at New York Fashion Week, we saw Zhang go for the same outfit formula she was seen in at Sydney Fashion Week earlier this year.

Her go-to pieces? A waist-cinching corset and statement pants. Perhaps it's to do with her tiny frame and cool-girl confidence to street style that makes her a star when it comes to photographers. Zhang has proven layering is not just limited to winter, but can be experimented with through all seasons of the year. Think: Pants over skirtsswimwear under jeans, and an LBD over trousers. The options are clearly endless. Either way, she's given us new inspiration to the corset and statement pant trends and we're eager to try these looks.

Style notes: Give your band tee a tougher look by rolling the sleeves and adding a plain black corset to cinch the waist.
