Minimalism: Keeping it Simple

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

-Albert Einstein

Whether you're a devotee of designers like Jil Sander and Phoebe Philo or live in a uniform of black, you know that minimalism is far from just boring basics and post-KonMari closet.  A true fashion minimalist's wardrobe is built on elevated staples, a selection of colors, and an edit of interesting shapes.

For the Clothia girl that's new to the world of minimalism, let us show you some easy ways to simplify your life (and your wardrobe) while maintaining your personal style.

Some favorites from Adriana Morandi 

INVEST IN CLASSICS

A white t-shirt. An overcoat. Your favorite jeans. Wardrobe staples are where you can invest the most in the closet. Buying well-made basics in neutral shades (black, white, tan, gray, navy) that will last years will stretch your investment and serve as the base you build your minimalist looks on.

 

SEARCH FOR DIFFERENT SHAPES

Minimalists avoid flashy and excessive details, instead selecting pieces with geometric cuts and unique proportions in your favorite neutral. If you typically like lace or embroidery, try cropped styles or cut outs; experiment with slim trousers and chic slides instead of short skirts and statement heels.

ACCESSORIZE 

While a true minimalist will avoid over accessorizing, this is where a Clothia girl can let her personality shine. Keep your accoutrement choices simple with classic geometric earrings, a perfect bag for everyday use and a chic, comfortable shoe - you'll be all set and ready to take on the world.
