Remember the golden rule od minimalism: Less is more – while putting together your outfits this season. Here’s how you can keep it minimal, yet make heads turn this summer!
Keep it neutral
Those who swear by minimal style, love all things neutral. Take out all those whites, blacks, greys, navys, beiges, and create outfits that are simple, yet statement. Neutral colors can be your go-to BFFs if you want to nail this trend. Go for tone-on-tone looks like an all-white outfit for a lunch date, accessorized with tan loafers & a tan belt. Don’t mix in too many colors if you want to keep it simple & suave. Avoid loud prints or bright hues, stick to earthy or neutral tones, and play around with accessories to add some fun to your trendy summer looks!
Play with textures
Putting together different textures to create a subtle, yet interesting look is one of the smartest ways of going minimal. This season, pair various fabrics or textures together to make dapper ensembles! Sport a knitted tee with linen shorts, or a chambray shirt with denim pants for a play of textures that add a smart edge to your outfits. Try out different pairings, and don’t be afraid of experimenting with different textures in the same color palette. As long as the look is not OTT, you can play around with various fabrics or surface treatments to make your summer lookbook cool & trendy!
The smaller, the better
Minimal fashion calls for solid colors and subdued textures, but if you are a lover of prints, then you can definitely opt for small & cute motifs. Upgrade your wardrobe with clothing pieces that flaunt the most subtle patterns, in order to ace this trend. Go for micro-sized polka dots, suave pinstripes, tone-on-tone prints, simple patterns, geometric motifs or small quirky prints for the best results. Ditch those bold graphic tees for dotted linen shirts, or those bright comic prints for smart quotes for the ultimate minimalist look. Avoid any OTT pattern or print, and embrace all things elegant for some winning summer outfits!
Classy never goes out of style
Minimalism looks best, when done the classy way. So, this summer, be the suave gentleman in well-fitted suits, smart blazers, crisp white shirts or pastel-hued linens. Keep the colors light or neutral, embrace well-tailored fits, do away with unnecessary accessories, and be on top of your style game! Stock your closet with classic must-haves like the white shirt, a well-cute navy blazer, straight-fit denims, a basic black tee etc. so that you can give out gentleman-vibes at any occasion. You can even add finishing touches with classy accessories a sleek watch or a striped tie for smart minimal looks that’ll make you stand out in the crowd.
