Let’s discuss the one of the lesser-known commandments of looking chic – The ‘third piece rule’ is all about polishing off your look and adding personality to an otherwise underwhelming outfit. Breaking it down you need to have a top, a bottom and then add a third piece like a jacket, scarf, statement necklace, hat or belt to complete the outfit. Your shoes don’t count as a piece of clothing so knock them out with your fabulous footwear.

By adding one of these pieces on top of your jeans and tee shirt look, you are sure to add a splash of style. Scarves and belts are great for adding colour and texture to your look – they can be worn in lots of different ways, and allow for unlimited potential. When shopping for your perfect third piece, go for neutral colors or prints that you know will work well with anything in your wardrobe to maximise wearability.
