If you haven’t heard of this rule-it’s the only “rule” in my (style) book that I follow and encourage clients to follow.
The Rule of Three.
The Rule of Three: everything in your closet should work at least three different ways. It’s my secret style weapon to avoid trends, not leave the dressing room disappointed (yet again) and to have the most versatile mix and match wardrobe yet.
The key to a slim and sufficient wardrobe is versatility.
Ask yourself these questions,
1. Can it work three different ways in your wardrobe?
If not: Will you learn and take the time to make it work three different ways? (Be brutally honest here. If a sequined skirt throws you into a tailspin- don’t buy it!)
2. If it’s an investment piece, will you wear it in a year, two or three?
For the utmost versatility, an investment piece should be classic in cut and style. Think neutral core colors like black, camel, charcoal or navy.
3. If it weren’t on sale, would you be purchasing it or does it seem like an “I have to buy it-it’s on sale!”
Give yourself 24 hours if you’re on the fence. If you’re still thinking about it the next day, go on back and buy it, enjoy!
