Triple Threat: How to Get an It Girl Look in Only 3 Pieces

triple threat

Years ago the term “it” girl almost exclusively referred to a celebrity.  TV stars, musicians, movie actresses, etc.  But with the explosion of social media, street style photography and style-centric blogs, the muses of designers and magazine cover stars has officially shifted to the girl about town, who just happens to be outrageously on-point trend-wise.  We sift through loads of websites, blogs and social media outlets admiring, ogling and hoping to channel whatever that “it” girl factor is.  The French call it je ne sais quoi; we call it style intelligence because these babes have their fingers on the pulse of fashion.  And through our extensive hours of “research”, we discovered that fashion success comes in an easy equation – the theory of three.  Quite simply, it’s a formula consisting of two bang-on trend staple pieces kissed with a statement piece.   Need some inspiration on how to make it work? Look at our styled examples below for your effortless transition into “it” girl dressing.  We’ve even included a few secret styling tricks to help elevate your look.
