We all know that feeling of looking through your wardrobe and feeling like you have nothing to wear, yet your closet is full of unworn items that have yet to see the light of day. When it comes to your wardrobe, sometimes less is more. Versatile pieces that can be worn for endless occasions is key to curating a closet that lasts. You'll never be stressing about what to wear next after following these tips on creating your minimalist wardrobe.
1. Finding Your Style
A great way to build a wardrobe that lasts is discovering which silhouettes speak to you the most, regardless of trends and what others are wearing. Tuning in to yourself and understanding what pieces of clothing make you feel the most confident will come in handy when you navigate buying items, especially if you're someone that struggles with impulse purchases. Only you can answer this so, tune out the noise and listen carefully to see what brings you that spark.
2. Timeless Silhouettes
The staple blazer,
simple midi skirt,
classic button up
and essential tank top
are all timeless pieces that can be easily styled into countless ensembles. Fit for any occasion, these items will have you prepared when looking for that go-to outfit for work, dinner or casual drinks without looking too dressed up or down. If you're feeling adventurous, adding essential pieces with a daring cut can be a charming addition to your closet. We like our Cut Out Back Top
and Backless Scoop Bodysuit
for the perfect simple outfit with a flirty twist.
3. Versatile Colours
Understanding what colours look good on you and how to style these into your wardrobe not only helps you get more wear out of your clothes but also lessens the time spent stressing about putting together outfits. After finding what colours work for you, start with neutral pieces as these basics lay as the foundation of your outfits. Then, you can allow pops of colour through layering, jewellery or makeup to elevate the look. Whites, blacks, taupes and creams can be paired endlessly with different patterns, textures and colours. Our favourite neutral pieces include our Jamie Tank in White
and Cargo Skirt in Khaki
4. Maximise Layering
Layering is essential to making the most out of your minimalist closet. Cardigans, vests
, button up shirts
, and knits
are all key to getting the most wear out of your clothes. Pairing an essential tee
with your go-to vest
makes a cute ensemble or matching a button up knit cardigan with a simple tank top creates two looks in one. Keeping these pieces will have your creativity running free and reduce the amount of clothes collecting dust in the back of your closet. Our favourites include the Charlotte Cardigan in Brown
and the Knit Crop Vest in Beige
