40 Trendy Minimalist Styles To Get Inspired From This Season

“Few trends boast the staying power of minimalism. Minimalist style isn’t just a passing fad—it represents an entire sartorial mindset.”

“Minimalism is about paring down your closet to its basics, creating a capsule wardrobe full of essentials and pairing those go-to’s every which way until you have a whole host of easy outfits at your disposal.”

“It’s fashion in its most efficient form: Your closet is there to compliment you, not to make a statement.”

How To Be A Fashion Minimalist? 

How To Be A Fashion Minimalist?

“Appreciating minimalist fashion and integrating it into your day-to-day routine are two very, very different things. The latter actually requires effort!”

“You have to Kondo the hell out of your closet, build that aforementioned capsule wardrobe and then come up with enough combinations to carry you through.”

“And just when you think you’ve achieved the perfect low-key outfit situation, something—some event, some inspo pic, something—will make you realize you totally neglected to stock up on some basic pieces that are essential in your pared-down wardrobe.”

“The best way to figure out what you need to shop for? Determining what you actually want to wear. And the easiest way to make that happen is to check out all the minimalist outfit inspiration you can get your hands on.”

“Which is exactly why I’ve assembled a visual guide to all of the best minimalist fashion outfits I’ve ever laid eyes on, courtesy of the ever-so-trendy fashion street style set. Read on to check out a few of my personal favorite ‘fits.”

  • Whittle Down Your Wardrobe 

According to style expert and stylist Naina Singla, “Although there is no magic number of how many pieces to have in a capsule wardrobe, it’s important to put the focus on building with the right pieces.”

“To begin, I often recommend to my virtual styling clients that they choose a few essential items that will set a good foundation for a capsule wardrobe.”

“A few examples of these essential ‘quite luxury’ or minimalist pieces are a statement coat or trench, an everyday dress, loose knitwear, tailored trousers, high-waisted jeans, a tailored blazer, and elevated basics to layer with such as knits, tees, and tanks.”

  • Be A Proud Outfit Repeater 

As per Singla, “You’ll get the most out of your wardrobe if you’re able to make simple tweaks with your looks.”

“You can do this easily if you create a go-to daily outfit formula, which is a specific combination of items you can wear in different versions. Think of it as a uniform with little variation, that will help you to get dressed more easily and make it more enjoyable.”

  • Invest In High-Quality Fabrics 

According to fashion stylist Alison Bruhn, “The simpler the look, the nicer the fabric needs to be because prints can hide flaws like uneven seams, et cetera – but solids cannot. Fabrics should be linen, cashmere, cotton, silk, tweed, leather, and suede. Pay extra attention to how the clothing drapes on the body.”

  • Choose Tailored Neutrals 

As per fashion stylist Madeleine Kennedy, “Picking pieces that are property tailored will keep your look sharp and elevated, while neutrals throughout will create a more cohesive look. Things black and white trousers, black and white blazers, white and black button-ups (are must-haves).”

  • Invest Accessories 

Founder of footwear brand NOMASEI, Paule Tenailon, and Marine Braquet, “You can’t get the minimalist dressing look without a good pair of loafer, a silk-colored scarf like the Hermès (you can find tons in vintage stores), and a clean leather belt with minimal buckle.”

  • Forgo The Visible Logos & Graphics 

As per stylist therapist Christina Stein, “Minimalist dressing is all about TYKYK style staples, which means no loud trendy pieces or obnoxious logos.”

“Instead of going for something in the realm of monogrammed or logo mania, like the Louis Vuitton bag with LV stamped all over it, you would instead get a bag by Mansur Gavriel or the Row. Their handbags are structured and give very little away as to who designed them.”

“(While we’re on the subject,) the more graphic a tee is, the trendier. Graphics also make a top more casual and less of a classic and versatile piece.”

“When buying a graphic tee, you’re guaranteeing that the shelf life of that item is a year or less because the following year, a new graphic or logo will be smacked on a shirt, and the one you are old fashion news.”

Trendy Minimalist Style For You To Get Behind 

“Our collective affinity for minimalism hit full swing several years ago and it has remained unendingly strong ever since. I mean, I don’t think I’ll ever have too many pairs of fresh white sneakers in my wardrobe!”

“And white T-shirts? They’re essential! Though maximalism has become popular in the street style and home decor spheres, it hasn’t thwarted minimalism’s overwhelming appeal. I will never not be down to style a few neutrals into a sleek, versatile ‘fit.”
