Fashion is known to push boundaries and to make one think outside the box. Although thinking outside the box is what fashion is all about, sometimes simplicity is all you need. Minimizing the amount of clothes that you wear, while at the same time dressing fashion-forward is one of the easiest ways to stay on-trend. This week’s Fashionisto shows us that it’s not always about the flashy, and in fact, the minimalist is the new fashion-forward.
One of the coolest pieces this Fashionisto is wearing are his jogger pants. I like these pants because of their versatility. You can dress jogger pants up with a blazer or dress them down with a button-down and sneakers as shown by this Fashionisto. Jogger pants are a major part of menswear this spring, so it would be a wise investment. Another thing I liked about this Fashionisto’s look are his sneakers. Because the rest of the look is Calvin Klein simple, the pattern on the shoes add a subtle flare to the entire look. This Fashionisto’s Vans give the look the right amount of flare in order to avoid looking boring.
This Fashionisto’s button-down is the perfect amount of minimal. A big trend i have noticed in menswear lately are the short sleeved button-downs. These shirts remind me of 1950s Cuba and it seems they have finally made their way into the new millennium. I love that this Fashionisto’s look is black and white from head to toe with a touch of color.
As the semester progresses, I have noticed that it’s not always about more rather than less. Keeping clothes simple not only makes getting dressed easier, but it also gives your clothes the ability to pair easily with other clothes in your closet.
Hint: If the minimal look is your kind of style, try wearing clothes with basic colors and let your accessories or your shoes do all the talking. The key to this look is less is more. Keeping these simple rules in mind will give you a look that can’t go wrong.
