There has been a growing trend in looks that are safe to describe as exuding Impersonal austerity. Minimalism in its core form is a flip side of “expressivism”. One which is deeply rooted in the doctrines of rigorous reductions and utilization of non-emotive designs.
It seems to be the new luxury for many fashion enthusiasts, brands and content creators alike. This burgeoning movements has a conservative manner of approach that lays emphasis on “less is more”, which also comes in handy with the need to push sustainability to the core front of the ever evolving fashion industry.
So how does one actually pull-off a minimalist look? Obi Jacqueline gives us a vivid picture of how it’s done.
Neutral Colours Are King
They may take the form of white, grey, navy blue or the most basic black, but they definitely help stress on extreme plainness and simplicity.
Loose Silhouette & Fittings
Minimalism also tries to remove the “Figure” notion. It preaches seamlessly easy-fit clothing as in palazzo, kimonos etc.

Restricted Emotive Designs
Looks would predominantly not be saturated with excess patterned designs and embroidery.
Accessories are a rarity
A watch or simple necklace or bracelet would do. With little or no heavy make-up (for female).
