A Minimalist Style
Maximalism is having a big moment. Oversize silhouettes paraded down fashion week runways in splashy prints and glaring colors, and while we love the leopard print–and-pink combo we’re seeing everywhere right now, we also appreciate a more laid-back look. One can always lust after on-trend over-the-top fashion, but a streamlined and pared-back aesthetic will never goes out of style.
For those who subscribe to a minimalist approach to dressing, there’s still no shortage of inspiration (despite what we’ve recently seen on the catwalks). The best minimalist fashion blogs boast no-fuss ensembles in a palette of black, white, and neutrals. Adding a level of elegance and simplicity to their look by wearing tailored jumpsuits, crisp white button-downs, or linen dresses in classic silhouettes, these fashion girls never fail to deliver endless inspiration in their editorial musings and on their Instagram feeds.
