If you are a girl, you probably own a lot of clothes. Even though you generally love what you buy, we all hate at least 2/3 of our wardrobe. Why? Because at the moment of purchase I haven’t realised that I don’t need this or that top, because I generally don’t have anything to wear with it. Recently, I became a fan of everything minimalistic. Now I try to buy less signature pieces (when it comes to clothes) and more simplistic items that go well with each other in all of the combinations. Nowadays, there are so many brands that produce minimalistic, yet very trendy pieces, such as COS, Finery London and ASOS White.
There are a couple of tips that I would like to share with everyone who wants to try the minimalistic approach for their wardrobes
1. Buy more quality clothes
When you are spending less money on buying a lot of clothes you can afford to buy more expensive clothes, which will stay nicer looking in the long run and probably save you money as well.
2. Buy clothes of solid colours
Solid colours make mixing and matching far easier. You will probably never find a plaid shirt that matches a different pair of plaid pants, for example. The more solid colours you have the more likely you are to be able to creatively put together new outfits without having to take a trip to the mall.
3. Invest in some accessories
Nice signature bag or shoes can instantly make a minimalistic and very basic outfit to become the trendiest look of the season. Accessories are generally a lot cheaper than investing in new clothes all of the time—so if your wardrobe is feeling old and uninspiring, consider accessorising!
4. Only keep pieces that fit you perfectly
You’ll never want to keep an item that you don’t feel fully comfortable in, whether it be because of it’s material, style or fit. If you do you’re not going to wear it and you’ll end up tossing it out after a year of trying it on and hanging it back into your closet.
Even if you’d decide to wear something that doesn’t really fit you that won’t make it better. Wearing clothes that are two sizes too small or too big never makes you look good. A piece that fits you like it was tailor-made on contrary has the nice side effect of making you look very polished.
