If you’re looking for inspiration to keep your street style effortless and minimal, keep on reading to get some tricks from her.
Make your casual street style fuss-free yet polished.
Though casual denim items seemed to be the simplest and most comfortable pieces in your closet, most women tend to look frumpy in them. The key is to select figure-flattering pieces with less distressed features that will keep your outfit polished and sleek. Like Marie, you may resort to black overalls which are dressier over navy ones, and team it with a chic top. Or, opt for jumpsuit or boot-cut jeans in plain style that will look minimal and polished over frayed, ripped, and acid-washed ones.
Stick to a maximum of two to three shades on your overall look.
Though a minimalist style is known for a monochromatic dressing, you may keep your style a bit stylish by going for a maximum of two or three shades on your overall look including your accessories. Though a minimalist style is known for a neutral palette and muted shades, you may still opt for classic shades of red, blue, purple, and deep green which look more glamorous since they embody the gem colors. Like Marie, add some gold accent with your slip on sandals to dress up your minimalist style a bit.
Look effortlessly cool with matching sets or coordinates.
Matching sets or coordinates are one of the creative means to look effortlessly chic yet minimal. Like Marie, you may opt for a monochromatic matching set of lace blouse and shorts for casual weekends, or printed pajama outfit for a trendy street look. This way, you’ll look more cohesive and polished without bothering you on what to team with your favorite pieces.
Make your chic outfits comfortable and stylish.
Like Marie, make your formal occasions more effortlessly chic by keeping it minimal yet occasion-appropriate. If you’re wearing an already elegant outfit, just like an embroidered top teamed with matching skirt, balance it with a pair of metallic gold flats which will dress up your style without making it overdone. In the colder months, think of creating an effortlessly chic style by layering your tube dress with a black tee like Marie did. By following these style tricks from Marie, you’ll be able to get a minimalist style effortlessly regardless to what occasion you’re going to.
