Today I am back with another post as part of our “22 Ways To Inspire Your 2022” series. This time’s it’s a little tip to try when getting dressed this week to help you instantly look and feel more put together – and it’s called the THIRD PIECE RULE.
Here’s how it works- the third piece rule is that for an outfit to go from good to great, it needs three key pieces. The first two pieces are the top and bottom. So this would be your shirt and jeans or skirt or pants. The third piece is that extra something that finishes off the outfit. And in return for adding this “third piece” you look more put together. So what is the third piece? It can be a vest, scarf, blazer, jean jacket, cardigan, statement jewelry or a layered sweater. Really anything to help elevate your two piece outfit.
By adding this third piece, you will instantly look more put together and your outfit will be more elevated. I challenge you to add that third piece when getting dressed this week!
Just another nugget of inspiration for you as we work through our “22 Ways to Inspire Your 2022”!
