Add some effortless vibe to your minimalist outfits with sneakers.
If you’re a fan of athletic style but wish to dress up a bit, think of resorting to minimalist ensembles that will look cool with sneakers. Like Vanessa, you may go for a breezy pastel blue dress that will look minimalist cool with a pair of sneakers. If you think crop top and skirt feels so sexy for your personality, dress them down with sneakers like Vanessa did. Your sporty shoes will go well from structured coats, breezy skirts, casual trousers and such as a modern representation of an urban woman.
Keep the structure on your breezy spring outfits.
Lightweight and airy ensembles are perfect for the spring season, but if you think they look too feminine for you, go for structured and streamlined ones. Like Vanessa, you may go for lavender off-shoulder top and breezy trousers but pay attention to the cut and drape of the fabric so you’ll keep everything minimal yet effortless. When wearing breezy tops and blouses, you may always go for a pair of culottes that looks boxy and structured regardless of the fabric it’s made of.
Add some unexpected edge to your spring looks.
Wearing leather ensembles may be the easiest trick to get that edgy look, but you can still experiment with structured pieces, funky tights, and urban accessories. If you wish to channel your edgy and grunge style, you may think of a pair of fishnet tights that will look great with your basic sweater and patent leather skirt like Vanessa did. Or, go for architectural shoes, studded shoes, rock-chic booties, peep-toe boots, and even grunge boots that will give you that tough-girl look.
Layer like a pro.
In the transitioning months, wearing layers is the perfect means to get creative and extend your basic ensembles. Like Vanessa, you may think of wearing your breezy dress with a plain white tee that will look casual-chic on your weekends. Or, simply slip on a leather jacket and a pair of grunge boots to make your breezy dresses a bit edgy and spring-appropriate like Vanessa did. By heeding these tricks from Vanessa, you’ll make your minimalist cool style make a bold statement this spring.
