After college, I was a personal stylist before moving to New York. I was able to learn all about the “third” piece. Your top, bottoms and sweater are the foundation of your outfit. The third piece is what makes it shine. It can be a jacket, vest, scarf or sweater. Or even a cool accessory to pull your outfit together, such as a hat or piece of jewelry. It’s usually a jacket or blazer, but it happens most often in the Midwest. Don’t lose your cool! I mentioned fall in August. Believe me, it drives my insane when people talk about it but it’s just about time!
