Minimalism is all about neutral tones, and timeless pieces. By keeping your winter pieces classic and in neutral tones, you’ll wear them over and over again without being noticed as they’re easy to mix and match with your existing ensembles. Like fashion blogger Doina Ciobany, you can dress up your casual outfit of jeans and striped top with a fur trimmed coat that look classy at the same time timeless. Or, add some creative vibe like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu did, wearing her gray dress with a camel coat and brown cowboy boots.

Add some flair to your minimalist outfit with accessories.

A woman with a minimalist style would prefer styling her minimalist outfits with catchy accessories rather than having a lot of trendy pieces that can spice up her basic ensembles. Think of beanies, hats, silk scarves, shawls, leather gloves, sling bags, tote bags, clutches, belts and such that can add some flair to your winter style. Like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu, you may think of a bandana scarf, printed bag, or even a bold colored clutch to dress up your minimal and simple winter outfits.

Layer your winter pieces like a pro.

The best way to wear your favorite winter pieces more often is to layer them like a pro. The rule of thumb is to wear the most lightweight piece as under layer and the heaviest piece as your outer layer to avoid unwanted bulk. This way, you’ll look less noticeable that you wear your top many times a week. Like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu, you may even think of mixing your prints and patterns on your top piece just to add some variety to your minimalist style, or treat your blanket scarf as a cape that you can style in whatever looks you like.

Resort to a pair of versatile and sturdy boots.

If you’re a minimalist, chances are, you have a pair of classic pumps and boots in your shoe wardrobe. Like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu, you may go for a pair of black ankle boots that will look great with a winter white outfit, as well as on an all-burgundy outfit. By going for a pair of versatile and sturdy boots, you’ll make your walking hours in the snow effortless while adding some flair to your winter style. By heeding our tricks, you’ll be able to build a minimal wardrobe strategically.
