ALL IN THE DETAILS: Making Statements Through Minimalism

How would you describe your style? Are you eclectic and bold? Free spirited? Maybe you tend to play it safe? Whichever way you identify, detailing plays a major part in bringing life to your look.

Throughout recent and current trends, subtle detailing—whether by design or personal styling—has become a staple in how we dress. From cut-outs and off-the-shoulder silhouettes to zippers, pockets, and buttons, it’s all about making a statement by sweating the small stuff.

This Fashionista’s look stays true to her minimalistic aesthetic but commands attention with how she accessorizes. You can never go wrong with an all-black outfit; it exudes a variation of impressions from edginess to professionalism. She keeps it simple by pairing a loose-fit T-shirt with slimming high-waisted jeans while her leather jacket offers a bold touch.

I loved the zipper detailing on the sleeves of her jacket; this edgy hardware brings a statement to a basic staple item. Her chain handle bag is on trend; the thick chain detailing is very chic and totally ups her bag game. Her mirrored sunglasses are sassy and add some oomph to her style. Lastly, she accessorizes and adds a pop of color to this monochrome look with some cute fashion pins, another mini detail that adds fun to an easy outfit.

While detailing on clothing can often be trendy and may fade out within upcoming seasons, it is still essential to play around with different attributes to update your look. If you want to break out the box and add some versatility to your style without deviating from what’s true to self, consider adding some basic threads to your wardrobe that have minor silhouette detail. Remember, a little goes a long way!
