Layering '77 B

Shelley in a spread for Harper's Bazaar, 1977

Shelley appeared on many spreads throughout Harper's Bazaar's September 1977 issue. In the spread called "The New Ways of Layering", she and fellow model Linda Tonge showed readers how to layer furs, jackets, vests and coats in order to achieve the luxurious look of the season. Earth tones accented with soft blues and rose, a mix of lengths and textures was what it was all about.

Shelley wore Layers of Stripes & Checks, a big-cut blazer with muted stripes over a checkered blazer worn over with a ruffled shirt and narrow corduroy pants - all by Basile. A scarf around her neck finished her look.

Shelley also wore Layers of Wool & Cotton, a western shirt over a dirndl skirt topped with a cable-knit vest then again topped with a tweed jacket and a longer drawstring jacket - all by Bill Kaiserman for Rafael. A woven leather belt finished her look. And Shelley looked sensational in both outfits.
