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.
