Minimalism is the new in trend these days! Have you noticed the lack of color lately in outfits? People have been rocking this look left and right. Although, I do my love of pop of color (especially for the spring time) I’m also a huge fan of minimalism. It makes things so simple yet chic. Minimalism is basically an outfit that plays mostly on neutral colors. This may sound boring to some of you extravagant dressers out there, but trust me with the right pieces you can really make a statement with a simple idea.
When playing with neutral colors you have to be fairly particular with the pieces you choose. I think it’s a balance between an edgy and sophisticated look to really pull it off. You really don’t want to look like a giant blob of black. You want to have pieces that sculpt the body and enhance your style in a way that’s simple. Minimalism is basically styling different shades of a neutral color, like shades of black, white, gray, brown… etc! What really spices up a minimal outfit is the textures you use and how you use each shade in part of the outfit in different ways.
Lately, I’ve noticed the infamous Kim Kardashian loving the new minimalist lifestyle. Ever since Kim married Kanye West, it seems her fashion game has definitely stepped up. I don’t follow the Kardashian drama at all, but I have been noticing Kim’s new style. I am actually loving her new platinum hair too. When I heard about her new hair color change I thought, “oh it’ll probably look so weird on her skin tone” but was I wrong! It’s very high fashion of her (UPDATE: KIM K IS BACK TO BLACK HAIR). Kim’s really killing it in the fashion world, plus Kanye’s got his new fashion line that premiered at NYFW. She really knows how to work black and white pieces to their fullest. Notice the way she uses different textures and shades to make the outfit not seem so bland.
If you’re new the the minimalist lifestyle, try experimenting with it in the StyleIt app! I’m sure you can come up with some great ideas on there and it’ll be sure to help suggest things to you too. All my outfits on my page are very black and white oriented….didn’t even mean to do that on purpose! Show us what you got fellow fashionistas!
