When To Wear the Minimalist Style

When I first browsed the Victoria Beckham x Target line, I fell in love with the rich textures and prints. Each piece had a subtle luxe vibe but it isn’t always easy to style these types of pieces. This is the perfect example of when to embrace the minimalist style. Let’s break it down!

1- WHEN THE MAIN PIECE STEALS THE SHOW
Bold prints, bright colors, and eye-catching designs are great opportunities to try out the minimalist style and most of you probably already do this without thinking about it. These styles can all be tricky to wear, so the easiest way to pull it off with ease is through minimalism.

2- WHEN YOU’RE WEARING TEXTURED PIECES
Textured pieces- like faux fur vests and lace dresses- are another great example of when to wear the minimalist style. Putting a big, faux fur vest over a little black dress would be so chic!

3- WHEN THE DETAILING IS BIG & LUXURIOUS
Military jackets with big, luxurious gold buttons are the perfect example of luxe pieces that are worn best with the minimalist style. These are my favorite types of jackets but they definitely look the most chic when I go with the ‘less is more’ approach.

How to Wear the Minimalist Style

Minimalist style is simple and when it comes down to it, wearing it is also pretty simple. It doesn’t always seem this way, so let’s break it down!

1- FEWER ACCESSORIES
As noted in the beginning of this post, less is more and this is basically the minimalist motto. Are you wearing a necklace and earrings? Take off the necklace and stick with just earrings. Or try wearing a simple pendant necklace opposed to a statement necklace. When wearing a minimalist style, it’s best to stick with 2 or 3 accessories per look.

2- NEUTRAL COLORS
Neutral colors like black, white, and beige are key for minimalist style. Bright colors are basically the opposite of minimalism!

3- CLASSIC STYLES
Pointed-toe pumps, a shift dress, and a simple blazer- these are all examples of classic styles. These styles are timeless, so they’re great investment pieces! And they’re also perfect for minimalism.
