I'm the one who always thought minimalism means boring. No Prints and No color read No fun to me. I always wondered how a category of women, whom I call the "Minimalists" always dress in white , black and Navy and still look like a million bucks. And so i challenged myself to be one of them for a day , this is what I learnt.
Confidence is Key - One thing i've noticed about all these women , they walk like they don't care who rules the world. Attitude and confidence adds to your look. P.S. a bright red lip too.
Shapes and cuts Matter - They might look like simple at first glance , but on careful inspection what really makes an impact is the clever cuts and unique construction of the pieces they wear. Makes you want to be one of them.
Invest in quality basics - Can't stress enough on this , one style mantra they all swear by. Invest in great basic pieces , sculptural black cotton tops and Japanese trousers.
Since I wasn't one who invests a ton on basics , I pulled out a few favorite pieces i wear to work and tried to put them together. The vest is from Mango , for the shirt I just took a basic white formal shirt I always wear to work and cut out the sleeves and the skirt is an old one from topshop. Let me know how I fared in the comments below.
