Although I always say that the fashion is a circle and it’s going back to the same trends again, we are not in the actual 80’s anymore so extravagant accessories and super detailed cloth pieces are not every-day-materials nowadays. You know what is in demand? The minimal style! The minimal style is identified by one main rule: keep it simple! That means using very little amount of shapes, a limited scale of colors and even a minimum number of pieces on yourself. We can say that simplicity is the only ingredient of this modern minimal style.
The Essentials of Minimal Style
There is a term that called ‘capsule wardrobe’ and it means having only the useful pieces of clothing in your wardrobe. Since it is highly related with minimal style, let’s take a look at what the essentials of the minimal style are. First of all, If you want to go with the minimal style you should have white t-shirts. They can go with every occasion and season. If you read one of the former articles about white t-shirt combinations, you already knew about its versatility.
Jeans are also irreplaceable pieces creating this kind of style. There are some charts below for you to understand the essentials better. As you see, there is a rareness of diversity and an abundance of blacks and whites and natural colors. You can make countless combinations using only these pieces and that is the beauty of it. Don’t ever think that patterns are discouraged, they are always welcomed but it is more preferable if they are paler than regular and not very complicated.
White t-shirts and jeans are irreplaceable pieces of this style. If you combine them with blazers or trench coats they become winter/fall outfit. T-shirt dresses are also very trendy when you combine it with chunky boots or trainers.
Did you know that you can combine silk midi skirts with knitted sweaters? The magical thing is when you complete the style with trainers they become casual and when you complete them with high heels they become the ultimate cocktail outfits.
Natural toned colors may be your fav colors while making your own minimal style. Styling very bright colors is a bold move and it is against the minimal s. mentality. Since it is the fall season now, natural colors will look good on your recently bronzed tan and under the mild gloomy weather.
I believe that less ornate never means less chic, I actually find minimalist gowns very classy. Minimal gowns are usually the kind of gowns that reveals your body shape. It just flows through your body. Even Hollywood stars wear minimalist dresses on the red carpet and they look so fancy with minimum effort.

Accessories are so important creating a style but minimal style means using only the most necessary pieces. We usually limit accessories to bags, hats and sunglasses due to their practicality. Of course this shouldn’t misdirect you into not using jewels. Minimal style goes best with the minimal jewels. They barely have stones or maybe no stones at all and they look so elegant, look at them!
