STYLE GURU STYLE: Minimalism is the New Black

It’s now 2017, and I would say this is the year where minimalism is back and here to stay. Traditional minimalism fashion features stylish and simple monochrome styles that can be easily mixed with classic wardrobe essentials. They are also the perfect basic everyday street style for day-to-night travels for various occasions.

For this outfit, I took minimalism’s monochrome approach with a twist. I have an oversize gray coat worn atop a burgundy curved hem knit top, both from Forever 21. Wearing an oversized wool coat can keep me warm and cozy in the winter cold while still looking chic and urban; adding a pop of red to an outfit can also accentuate minimalistic, clean lines and round out all the minimalist grays and blacks. Finally, I styled my look with a pair of black Dr. Martens and black jeggings from Uniqlo. I also complete the outfit by wearing a black knitted statement beanie from Urban Planet and a galaxy marble iPhone case from Velvet Caviar to add a bit of my own personality.

To match my minimalistic outfit, I wore a Daniel Wellington 36mm classic black reading watch; the black dial and an ultra-thin 6mm case design give the watch a classy, bold yet subtle look that is light on the wrist. The watch is also enhanced with a black crocodile leather band for a pop of texture and detail. This black watch definitely screams minimalism. The simplicity and effortlessly elegant design makes the watch perfect to wear for any occasion. Daniel Wellington also offers interchangeable straps to fit your unique personality and fulfill your ideal outfit-matching needs.
