Minimalist Chic Wardrobe: 6 Casual Cool Items Every Girl Should Have In Her Closet

Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 11.18.13Less is more is the new trend. If we scroll through our Instagram feed modern minimalism seems to be quite trendy at the moment. We spend so much time thinking about what we wear, that I think it is sometimes easier to simply our wardrobe. How many times have we stood in front of our wardrobes thinking: ‘ I have nothing to wear’. Although, we’ve had a shopping spree earlier that week. Having too much to choose from is not always a blessing. Imagine never looking at a fully stuffed closet and thinking “I have nothing to wear” again. What if you knew exactly what you were going to wear every day?

I’ve decided to tackle my closet and create myself a minimalist wardrobe. Today we are sharing 6 basic items every girl should have in her closet.  Scroll down for examples of our favourite Instagrammers rocking the look, and stock up on your favourite minimalist essentials.

#1 – 3 The Essential Items
A pair of jeans, a white tee and a black blazer. These items can’t miss in your closet. Wear a pair of single-soled pumps with a pair of well-loved jeans, and you’re set. It almost doesn’t matter what you have on top; with a ratty T-shirt or a couture blouse, the combination of jeans and pumps gives your outfit a “on my way to a fashion show” vibe.

#4 Casual Pair Of White Sneakers
White shoes are a summer staple and this season white sneakers are the shoe of the summer. Combined with a black pair of trousers or jeans they can look quite effortlessly chic.

    Love this. The only thing I’m missing are the heels now but hey now I really need to buy shoes like that on my next shopping spree – what a pity :P

    Have a wonderful week.

    YES! Absolutely love their chic minimalist styles. Nothing more you need than a pair of classic denim jeans, a white tee and a black blazer.

    Definitely need more white tees, and I threw out my old white pumps as they were so old – need a good pair to see me through all events :)
