Dec 7th, Rule of 3

DSCN6214DSCN6215 Over the past year I’ve mentioned my ‘rule of 3’ several times (and to be honest, I didn’t even come up with this idea, I think it came from Jessica Quirk of “What I Wore“), so today I thought I’d explain it again for those who were wondering what I’m talking about.

Basically it’s really simple!

I just like to have 3 elements to my outfit (on the top half). This means I might start with a plain top (or tunic as you see on the right) and then add a little something extra- like the striped cardigan and the raspberry scarf. By adding those 2 little extras- I have now made my outfit all the more interesting. I’ve added color and texture (with the scarf) and a pattern (with the cardigan).

Other options are: add a necklace, a bracelet, a belt, a jacket, a scarf, a vest, a tank, or even layer something underneath… the options are endless! Just keep it interesting!

Told you it was easy!

Enjoy your Friday!

  1. I love the Rule of Three. It’s fun to try out different accessories on an outfit and completely change the look. Accessories are my favorite way to incorporate a little trendiness.

    • I’m really sorry but I have no idea what style they are. They don’t have a name in the tag- and I bought them 4 years ago! They are cotton, nylon, spandex, and modal. They have belt loops, a zipper and a hook eye closure at the top, no pockets. Hope this helps. I do love them and wear them all the time (as you may have noticed). They are thicker than stretch pants and super warm.
      Good luck!
