Stop Being Intimidated by Accessories

So, let’s chat. Do you think you know the difference between just putting on clothes and putting together an outfit? The answer is more simple than you might think. Simple as 1, 2, 3, in fact. It goes like this: throwing on a t-shirt + jeans equals just putting on clothes, while opting for a t-shirt + jeans + a just-perfect fall cap? That makes an outfit. It’s the famous Rule of Three, guaranteed to level up your style game in no time flat. And to make it even easier, we’ve made a list of some of our favorite number threes. 

1. The Watch

2. A Nice Pair of Shades

Classic with a twist, the bold heavy face of the Timex along with a Top Gun-goes-modern pair of tortoise aviators is a winning combo that you can add to almost any fall look. 

3. A Stylish Hat

If you feel like your wardrobe is boring, it could be as simple as picking a piece in a contrasting color or texture to liven things up. This hat from Madewell adds a pop of color that’s just the right addition to denim. 

4. Wrist Accessories

Jewelry isn’t just for ladies (really)! We love the bold simplicity of this leather wrap alongside a watch or on its own. 

5. Pack in Style

A good bag can never be underrated. Not only can it help you hold all your neccesities, it can round out garb and send you straight into outfit territory. 

6. The Belt to Tie it All Together

Nothing says “I can do outfits” like a classic leather belt. It finishes your look and makes any pair of pants feel polished and professional.
