Less Is More

flare post 3flare sleeve postflare post 1flare post 2Minimalist style has never been more on trend than what it is now. We can incorporate it into every aspect of our personal style. Minimal pieces, minimal colour, minimal accessories, minimal embellishments – the list goes on! And although its a style that’s on trend now, it hasn’t always been the way. It was Coco Chanel who once said “before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off” – how times have changed! We dress so minimally now that we have to actually remember to put more on!

I love the minimal style. It’s easy, it’s crisp, and always looks smart. But just because its easy doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still pay attention to detail. If the “less is more” look is what you’re aiming for, then make sure the finer details in your outfit speak loudly!

The trick is to accomplish minimal style while still nailing the trends. It might be the bell sleeve cut, the buttons that run down the skirt, the V shape gusset in the boots or the elongating suede choker. You might not have paid much attention to it all together but each piece tells a different story. Have you ever admired a garment on someone else and thought “I have to have that!” but then thought “why”? It’s just a basic garment, right? Nothing too flash about it? Maybe it’s the fit, or the cut, or the way the fabric sits – it’s the finer details in a quality piece that make it an investment.

The key to a minimalists wardrobe is investing in quality pieces that will last and that can be mix and matched to achieve different looks. The best part? Anyone can accomplish a minimal wardrobe. No matter what size or body shape you have – the rules are all the same. Invest in great basics to nail that crisp, sharp, elegant style. Less really is more.
