Nail Your Winter Minimal Wardrobe
September 30, 2019
Minimal is having a moment. Capsule wardrobes reign royal and the less is better approach to style is all for equipping yourself with key pieces that will stand the test of time. So here are a few autumn essentials to get you started.
1) The Blazer
No self-respecting minimalist would be without a blazer, find a good one and you'll pair it with everything from denim and tees to floral dresses and trainers. A black blazer is the obvious choice, with oversized styles giving them a trend edge this season. But look to cream and camel designs for a different take that'll still stay classic.
Ah, denim. The cornerstone of any capsule wardrobe. Straight leg jeans are a perennial fave, they look great with everything from trainers and sandals to mules and heels. Pick classic blue denim and it'll work hard across everything from your basics to your tailoring. Or go for black if you want a smart/casual pair of jeans that'll take you from your desk to dinner.
3) A Good Tee
T-shirts are underrated, good t-shirts even more so. A plain white tee is a must for any minimal style rotation. Pick a crew neck design made in a high quality fabric and it'll complement everything from tailored trousers to layering under a slip dress.
4) The Trend Dress
Summer saw an influx of billowing dresses, and they continue into autumn but with a minimalist slant. These nightie-inspired, voluminous shapes are easy to throw on but they ooze effortless style. Bigger is better when it comes to oversized sleeves, roomy skirts and ruffled waistlines. Pair yours with knee-high boots for cooler days, or hold on to your minimal mules while the sun is still shining.
5) Must-Have Minimal Accessories
The best minimalists know that it's all about your accessories. They will make or break a look - a few well-chosen pieces will elevate even the simplest of outfits. A classic leather strap watch from our classic collection is a must-have, while a pair of hoop earrings is also on the list of staples. Add in a slinky snake chain and a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses and you'll have your minimal styling down in no time.
