Add a Button Up
This is where my discovery of the third layer happened.  One day while pulling my typical uniform of cardigan/cami out of my closet I happened to see a button up in the same color scheme.  A light bulb went off and I threw them all on together.  It’s amazing how one extra layer really pulls an outfit together.

The Hip Peek
This is the easiest way to add a third layer.  Grab a cami or tee that is slightly longer than your top and adjust so it peeks out 1-2 inches at the bottom.  Or follow the younger crowd and wear a crop top over a cami.

Jacket/Cardigan Combo
Perfect for work, shopping, date night, or a PTA meeting.  We love a jacket over a buttoned cardigan or leave them both open and add a great necklace.  You could also swap the cardigan for a button up.

The Double Cardigan
This is the trickiest way to add a third layer, mainly because there are both necklines and sleeve length to consider. But the rule is easy- make them match!
