The Third Piece… and No, Your Underwear Don’t Count

Zara Vest (old), White Trousers similar here, Crescent Necklace here
 This is where I admit to a minor obsession of mine that has recently become socially acceptable again: Outerwear Hoarding. If I had a dollar for every time I had a killer jacket or vest to wear but nothing to wear under it I would use that money to most likely by more outerwear. 
‘The Third Piece’ is one of those retail-speak terms that means the additional item you throw on when you already have your top and your pants (or bottoms.) I personally love a vest as my third piece even in the warmer months because it always adds interest to an otherwise normal look. In the fall there is obviously a much less cosmetic reason for a jacket or a coat, but sometimes we forget when wearing our fall sweaters that a vest still works just fine and in the case of the one above can Isabel Marant-ify your outfit (aka add a very street style festival chic to your look.) So don’t forget that extra piece just because its fall and we love out sweaters and ‘functional outerwear!’
