When we talk about trends that never go out of style, minimalism is definitely one of them. Why? Because everybody loves from time to time to go back to the most simple shapes, clean lines and functionality. So, are you wondering how the minimalist fashion style works? I guess the basic rule is this: you pick one powerful fashion item and let it pop against something simple and basic.

The fact is that these types of clothes are not seeking any kind of attention, which is why they are beautiful. If you want your minimalist fashion style to be a successful one, then you should stay near the following colors and tones: black, navy, white, camel and gray. And if these minimalist pieces are made of luxurious textiles, then the result is an elegant effect.


Do not exaggerate with accessories! They are not needed here. Just keep it as simple as possible.

The Minimalist Fashion Style

What Does It Look Like?

Let’s check it out. My first choice of colors regarding the minimalist fashion style is white. I love white because it’s so pure and makes you look innocent, but also because it’s very elegant, sophisticated and doesn’t look great on everybody. You have to have a certain attitude to wear it.

Essentiel Antwerp Mock Neck Victorian Blouse

I find this simple, white blouse to be very stylish. As you can see, it looks great with jeans – it gives a casual feel. You can go in the more casual-smart direction by combining it with a pair of more elegant trousers, maybe black ones or even nude. It will totally change your look and make a true minimalist statement. I wouldn’t add any necklaces. Maybe a pair of pearl earrings or some rings. For the sports minimalist fashion style, combine it with a pair of sneakers.

Vero Moda High waisted Culotte Pant

Because culottes are the new thing, check out how beautiful this minimalist look is. White culottes are simply divine and combined with a simple black crop top they really put an accent on your waist.

And if you were thinking how a white minimalist dress looks like, well there you go. You can’t get more minimalist than that. Pure perfection!

Going on to the next color, you’ll see that this one is the most comfortable one and also the most classic one: black. We’ve been wearing black since centuries and it’s considered the supreme one, the one you can wear everywhere, on every occasion, from a gym session to the Oscars (if you’re that lucky). Black makes you look sophisticated and mature. It also goes well with every fashion style trend.

Here’s another minimalist fashion all-black outfit, which I can honestly say I love. It’s casual but also trendy due to the stylish brogues. I would definitely wear this type of outfit.

Camel and nude are two colors that fastly became my favorite especially because they are natural tones which can be combined with everything without risking a major fashion failure. They are safe colors that also bring a touch of elegance.

When I think of camel or nude, the first thing that pops in my head is the camel coat. It’s the perfect way to show that minimalism is your thing. I think this slightly oversized camel coat takes the center of attention when it comes to your outfit. It doesn’t even matter what you’re wearing underneath. It’s all about camel!

Want to look effortlessly cool but also a little bit bad? Try this simple knitted dress and add some black accents to your minimalist style: black biker jacket and black suede booties. You won’t fail with this one!

Premium Scuba Low Plunge Fishtail Maxi Dress

As you can see, you CAN go elegant in a minimalist nude dress. And ladies, NO accessories are needed, maybe one or two that look really invisible. The dress has a simple shape and clean lines. Add a pair of simple heels or sandals and you’re ready to go.

Another color that, in my opinion, is representative for the minimalist fashion style is gray. When I look at something gray, all I see is an immensity of something. I think it’s an expansive color. That’s why I think that it can represent minimalism so well. Let’s take a look!

Expansive, right? It also looks very cozy, like you could fit all your body in it. We should keep in mind that in fashion, most of the times, it’s better we keep it simple than overdo it.

Black, white and gray: all in one minimalist outfit. For the best result of this style, I would definitely choose a pair of sneakers, maybe white ones. Another outfit that looks effortlessly chic.

I don’t know about you and how you feel about minimalism. I, for one, think it’s surprisingly awesome that it never goes out of style and brings us new accents year after year. And for that elegant look that we all want to get, minimalism is the choice every single time. So take it! Simple and clean cuts and lines ar here to stay!
