Styled : The Minimalist Wardrobe
For me, minimalist dressing is about understated luxury. And mastering a carefully edited wardrobe. The trick is building a collection of simple staples and tailored pieces in luxurious fabrics. Cashmere, wool, silk, leather.. fabrics that will last and wear beautifully over time. While the concept may seem basic, the pieces you buy will be anything but.
My wardrobe is mostly black. I love effortless pieces that work well together or on their own. But if you keep your colour palette streamlined -- black, navy, grey, nude, white -- you can still pair pieces together with ease. It also makes it easier to experiment with different silhouettes and textures.
For this outfit, I paired a loose fitting wool turtleneck by COS with tapered black trousers by Babaton. I layered on this wool overcoat by Everlane. I love the menswear inspired shape. Plus its a beautiful Italian milled wool and cashmere blend. For accessories, this Smythson travel wallet is my go-to. It's a streamlined shape and style, but when you open it up, it is roomy with dividers for everything you need to carry with you. And finally the perfect everyday ankle boots from Zara.
