Minimalist Style Lookbook 2016

Minimalist Style Ideas

Although I own more clothes than I”m proud to admit, I have been wearing more basics lately. I don’t think I’m ready to live a complete minimalist lifestyle, but I certainly appreciate the fashion. Minimalist style is more than decluttering and cutting back on your wardrobe. In my opinion, there is no such thing as fashion “rules”. Therefore, minimalist fashion means wearing interchangeable pieces that take the stress out of putting together an outfit every day. I love fashion as much as the next girl, but sometimes you need to spend less time thinking about clothes and more time thinking about important decisions. It’s important to have clothes that you want to wear and look forward to wearing. Minimalist fashion is also more than wearing basics. You can find simple outfits that have small, unique details.

Outfit #1: A chunky knit sweater is great for autumn. I love pairing big sweaters with black leggings or trousers together. This look can come off as romantic and comfortable or edgy cool. You could also accessorize with different scarves and handbags.  For a more old-school appeal, you can also tie the sweater around your waist.

Outfit #2: The next best thing besides a little black dress is a little grey dress. The color gives it a minimal feel, while the texture and neckline make the dress a little more interesting. I’m also very petite, so I fell in love with the length.

Outfit #3: T-shirt dresses have definitely won the hearts of women everywhere. I love wearing this black t-shirt dress for any time of the day. For me, the look is still casual without the jeans.

Outfit #4: I like to gravitate towards stripes instead of bold prints and overwhelming patterns. Not all striped are created the same. I love striped clothes because there are different sizes of the lines, which gives the outfit more texture. Stripes are also very versatile. For example, this skirt looks great with a black or white top.

Outfit #5: Don’t get me wrong, I live to wear dresses, skirts, and girly things. But I always feel too cool for school when I rock a simple white top and a pair of dark wash denim jeans. There is something so clean and sophisticated about a white top. I love the interesting pattern at the bottom of the shirt. It gives it a more detailed appearance.

Outfit #6: Nothing says “sexy librarian” quite like the black pencil skirt. You can change out the top for a camisole and add a blazer. There are a lot of things you can do with a simple skirt. The grey top gives the skirt a little gradient effect. You could also wear a white top for a bolder appearance.

Outfit #7: I like how thin the stripes are on this halter top. Skinny lines seem more girly to me, so I paired it with a black circle skirt. A small jacket or a pair of sheer pantyhose would be great accents for the colder months.

Outfit #8: White pants should be a staple in every woman’s closet. I like the high waisted look because it’s even more chic and classy. For an extra clean look, you could always wear white on white. However, in my opinion, grey and white is the new black and white.

Outfit #9: You can never go wrong with black pants unless you have dogs. None the less, black jeans as so versatile. You can change your top and have a new outfit every day of the week. I like to wear stripes with the dark pants for an edgy and modern look.
