Angela peels back her layers and lets us in on what goes on behind the ‘gram



Wonder Plays Dress Up explores diversity in beauty while trying on the skirt-over-pants look for the chilly new season. But as our chosen subject Angela Martinez (a.ka. Angela Burgers ?) peels back her layers to let us in on what goes on behind the ‘gram, we decided to take notes for fashion and bare a little skin here and there, and switch up heavy bottoms for lighter layers.


Angela reassures that just like you and I, she’s still getting to know herself; a process that continues on and needs to be revisited as we go through different life stages. But if there’s anything she’s sure of, “beauty is something that you feel inside and not what you see outside around you.”


“Beauty is something that you feel inside and not what you see outside around you.”


This is the story of Angela Martinez, what people misunderstand about her, her perception of beauty and how it has evolved, and what we need to remember about the 7 billion people in this world.

Don’t be afraid to wear sheer and thick colored stockings as bottoms. Anchor the look with something long and structured, like a black coat.

Brighten up gloomy days with fun, frilly looks in neon brights. Wear ‘em loud and in IDGAF sheer and pairings.

Sure, show off those legs in a statement mini dress. But make it current and pare it down with street-ready accessories, like a bucket hat and trainers.

Finally, once you feel a little more comfortable in two-for-one bottoms, try on a tiered skirt worn with pants in contrasting lengths and textures.
