Mix edgy and laid-back details on your casual street style.
Laura developed a ‘minimal luxe’ style with a mix of edgy and laid-back details. One day you’ll see her relaxed wearing sneakers, and polished wearing heels with unique designs on the next. Like her, you may think of dressing up your button front denim skirt with an off-shoulder blouse and scarf, but keep everything effortless with a pair of sneakers. If you’re tired of sneakers and heels, try to add some edgy vibe with your sexy lace up top and slit skirt with a pair of grunge boots that will balance your feminine looks.
Embrace clean lines, timeless cuts, and structured silhouettes.
Laura favors clean lines, timeless cuts, architectural pieces, and structured silhouettes. Minimal fashion is also known in fine fabrics, neutral palettes, balanced proportions, sharp tailoring, interesting fabric contrasts, and monochromatic ensembles that you might want to consider. Like her, you may resort to a white romper or dress with a structural neckline and hemline. If you’re wearing a wrap blouse with a V-neckline, think of going for a skirt with a high-slit to complement your architectural theme. Also, a pair of boxy pants will look more structured with a cold shoulder top like Laura wore.
Resort to tunics and capes to make an effortless statement.
A neutral palette, waistcoats, full length coats, and ripped denim are some of the elements you will always find in her outfits. But, to make everything look effortless, resort to tunics and capes that look classic yet fashion-forward. Add some flair to your plain dresses, tank top, corset top, skinny trousers, and white pants with a cape that you can wear in the office. Turtleneck tunics will go well with boxy culottes while knee-length sheath dresses will look great in structured tunics.
Add some structure to your outfit with accessories.
Go for structured and architectural shoes, belts, and bags that you can wear with your outfit. Like Laura, think of a belt that you can wear with your toppers and outerwear like blazers and blanket scarves that will surely work to add some polish to your layered look. Also, your bags and shoes don’t have to be in catchy colors just to make a statement as a structural and architectural silhouettes will do the same tricks but in a more sophisticated and classy way. Indeed, a minimal luxe style is one of the timeless looks you may go for to create a sophisticated yet modern statement.
