The power of simplicity can be intoxicating. Stripped down to it's core elements.
Because there are no embellishments, form, composition and color play a vital role
Precise tailoring attention to the smallest of details, are all signatures of the minimalist.
Deliberate classic perfect precision. Monochromatic colors are all trademarks
So how does one achieve the minimalist look?
For the minimalist , start with the basics, look at at the most essential pieces of clothing . Pant or slacks that have no additional or unnecessary pockets or flaps. Tops also need to stay simple. Whether you choose a v-neck sweater a shirt or cardigan, keep it simple. Simple buttons simple stitching. The classics are your best bet.
Sometimes it's difficult to find simple pieces of clothing particularly where the colors aren't strange and the quality is decent.
Look at vintage shops, consignment shops & Avant Garde boutiques . There are quite a few small clothing stores that offer lines of women's clothing that are made by smaller manufacturers both domestic and foreign.
Lots of these clothes are simple, basic colors with wonderful fabrics and work well for the minimalist look. The price vary all over he board but will most likely not cost near the amount one would pay for a known designer label.
Minimalist AccessoriesThe Minimalist look isn't complete without simple accessories. Although this look is sparce it makes an interesting backdrop for your favorite accessories.
As you know it's always in the details. So... wear what you love. Here are some of my favorite things to wear . Gloves with a light trench coat, classic heels or boots, simple headbands and clean belts.
