Having a streamlined closet is an easy and stress-free way to feel empowered and confident in your outfit choices! There are so many other wonderful things to do with our day than be indecisive about what to wear. Embracing a minimalist wardrobe provides the freedom to be creative with outfits, be conscious of what is in our closet, and wear what you already own!
A more minimal closet does not have to be boring, however! There are simple tricks to embrace the clothing in your closet and create interesting and fun outfits!
Pay Attention to Unique Silhouettes
Unexpected cuts and details are a surefire way to prevent a simple outfit from becoming boring. A classic shift dress with ruffle or dolman sleeves is far more intriguing and will be sure to turn eyes. Look for unique details to elevate your basics.
Go For Solids First
Embracing a minimalist style doesn’t mean abandoning colors outside the neutral tones. Black, white and beige will always look sophisticated and be easy to mix and match, but adding pops of rich or bright color is a sure fire way to make you look striking! Minimalist style also doesn’t mean no to prints, but sticking to timeless ones likes stripes or leopard is more versatile!
Get Items Tailored
Fit is extremely important when your pieces are minimal and simple. Slight adjustments to your jeans or a dress will let your figure, not the clothes, do the talking. When your clothes fit you perfectly, you are more likely to wear them and feel great in them!
Play With Texture
The key to pulling off a monochromatic or more simplistic outfit is to vary the fabrics and embellishments. Playing with textures gives your outfit depth and interest. Pair denim with linen and add a long necklace or add a textured belt to a white dress.
Accessorize With More Than Jewelry
When your canvas is chic and minimal it means you can accessorize to your heart’s content. A pair of statement earrings or a bold bangle are great ways to add color and texture but don’t be afraid to accessorize with more than jewelry. A belt adds a tailored touch and a hat is a chic and functional way to complete an outfit. Never underestimate the power of cute sunglasses, either!
