As we move into a new year, there's always a time for reflection that naturally comes around and the desire to remove things that don't serve us anymore. This especially rings true for our closets. A fashion refresh may be what you need and it's thrilling to bring in new pieces that you feel confident and beautiful in.
If you're looking for a great starting path, minimalist style is suitable for fashion beginners in the new year because it is a timeless and versatile look that can be easily achieved with a few key pieces. This look is also great for those trying to organize their life because it requires less effort to put together and maintain.
1. Back to Basics
The first step to achieving minimalist style is to invest in timeless classic pieces such as a black blazer or a white shirt that can be paired with different items to create different looks. Additionally, colors such as black, white, and grey are great base colors that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
2. Make a Subtle Statement
The second step to achieving this look is to add a few statement pieces, such as a patterned scarf, a statement necklace, or a bold lip color. These pieces will add a touch of personality to the look and can be easily swapped out for different occasions.
3. Monochrome Is Your Friend
Monochromatic outfits don't have to be boring. In fact, when done correctly, they are their own fashion statements. An outfit in brown, black, white, or gray stands out in a crowd just as much as a bold-colored outfit. For workwear, a simple black silk top, black paper bag leather pants, and classic black pumps is a fabulous outfit that can transform into a great outfit for post-work drinks.
4. Buy the Bag
If there is a sleek, classic bag that you're eyeing that goes with everything, buy it! Take that leap and add it to your collection. If you can wear it with any outfit, the versatility will last for years and that is truly an investment.
5. Less is More
The final step to achieving a minimalist look is to keep the accessories to a minimum. Instead of layering on multiple necklaces or stacked rings, focus on one statement piece that will complete the look.
By following these steps and investing in timeless classic pieces and a few statement pieces, fashion beginners in the new year can easily refine and organize their life with a minimalist style. Start shopping now for these staple closet essentials at Queen Anna House of Fashion.
