The Minimalist Guide To Fall Style


The definition of minimalism is "a style or technique (as in music, literature, or design) that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity."

This approach to fashion is based on a minimal aesthetic; it is more about the vibe, attitude, and thought process. Choosing an outfit every morning can be fun or it can be dreadful. It's the reason why many people have opted for the minimalist lifestyle. By having a handful of basic essentials, it leaves little room for huge decision-making before leaving the house.

From structured to voluminous silhouettes, we have no doubt that you can pull of this style. Ultimately, you are creating your own signature uniform.

6 Keys to Pulling Off the Minimalist Look

  1. Monochromatic vibes
  2. Flatter yourself
  3. High-contrast it
  4. Keep it basic with colors like shades of black, grey, and taupe
  5. Layer it up
  6. Build your own capsule collection: two blazers, three dresses, two skirts, four pairs of shoes, two bags, two pairs of jeans, two pairs of trousers, two T-shirts, three blouses, one button-down, two coats, and three sweaters.

Kissing is interesting. When it's a good kiss, there aren't too many other things that tops it. When it (pardon the pun) sucks, there aren't too many things that you hate more. Even as I'm running through the mental rolodex of all of the kisses I've had in my life, I'm willing to bet my next freelance check that, just like I am able to, you can immediately recall the best and worst kiss that you've ever had.
