Minimalism is a term referred to as movements towards stripping away the extra and unneeded and embracing it in the form of art, design and most importantly here, fashion. The concept of minimalism is based on the phrase “Less is more” motto adopted by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, referring to the fact that giving up to any superfluous decoration, you can reach what is significant and aesthetical. Although it may harder to add on than it is to take away, one might assume that it’d be a lot simpler to achieve a minimalist sense of style or minimalist fashion.
However, taking away and encompassing only what is important can be many times harder than adding random splashes of colour, or throwing in logos haphazardly unto a piece of clothing.
Minimalist fashion is the epitome of fashion, and the benefits are unpresidented. As said before, with minimalism, more is less. Therefore, only a few shades at max is used when striving for minimalism. Try to choose the simpler shades, such as white, black or perhaps grey. With white, it will be a piece of cake to give off a pure and premium vibe, but with black connotations of strength and confidence are unparalleled.
Another benefit to minimalism is the ability to have a weeks or perhaps even a months worth of outfits with just a couple pairs of clothing, this can be achieved with mixing and matching as with minimalism, mainly straightforward designs are used and therefore, will be easily matched with each other. Thus, decluttering your closet and making space for other things in your wardrobe.
Now with lesser quantity in your closet, obviously the quality should be higher, as that is the key to minimalism. Quality, over quantity. Therefore while striving for minimalism, please shop for only the highest of quality. Now when I say highest quality, do I mean the highest price? Well, yes and no. By and large, indeed, anything that costs more will be of a higher quality, and there are different contentions to be made for acquiring costly apparel, yet that isn’t generally the case. I’ve had a $15 dress last just about 10 years and a $250 satchel begin to go into disrepair after just four months. Cost regularly shows a higher quality, yet it’s not by any means the only deciding element.
