Let’s talk about minimalism. I wouldn’t classify myself as a minimalist, but a large portion of my wardrobe is influenced by this idea. I like the clean pieces that make it easy to put together, the simplicity it gives me with how crazy life has been, and having to be out of the box so I don’t get bored.
First, what is minimalism?
Well, according to http://itprotech.eu/ It is a term referring to those movements or styles in various forms of art and design, where the work of art is reduced to its necessary elements. The concept of minimalism is based on the phrase “Less is more” by giving up to any superfluous decoration, you can reach what is significant and aesthetical”
When it comes to minimalism, texture is king. You might be able to do minimalism with basic layers for a while, but without mixing up the texture of your pieces, you will get bored easily. I like to mix things up. If I am wearing a woven gray shirt, I will wear velvet or silk-like pants. I think that having contrast keeps myself and others engaged. It makes it more of an art piece.
