Layer Cake: Humanoid’s Collection for A/W 08/09

This back-and-forth weather has us running hot and cold—literally. What doesn't, however, is Humanoid's effortless, layer-friendly pieces designed to help you build the Goldilocks equivalent of the perfect transitional ensemble. Throw a loose tunic or dress—like the billowy stone-hued Verona smock—over a long-sleeved tee and/or the flared, beyond-comfortable Envy leggings, or envelop yourself in the cozy cocoon of the whisper-thin, calf-grazing Travis or heavy intarsia Pride shawls. Seal the deal with one of the Dutch label's ring-accented skinny belts and a pair of their tall brown boots (an everyday must), and you'll be feeling juuuust riiiight.
Humanoid is available at Atrium,644 Broadway,
