Let's Not Forget About These 7 Minimalistic Brands

Thanks to Gucci (and Zara) the last few seasons have been all about maximalism

1. La Ligne

A line centered around stripes? That's the concept behind New York–based La Ligne, which has become a simple staple for fashion insiders and celebs alike. While the collection does feature more flamboyant pieces, there are plenty of sleek, understated styles to add to your streamline wardrobe.

2. Mijeong Park

Hailing from L.A., Mijeong Park marries laid-back California style with simple minimalism. The collection focuses on neutral hues and modern cuts and makes for an ideal work wardrobe for those who want to keep things simple.

3. Arje

If you wanted proof that luxury and simplicity can go hand and hand, look no further than Arje, a see-now, buy-now line that has eschewed the traditional seasonal format. Highlighting lush fabrics like silk, cashmere, and shearling, it's a line you'll want to wear at home and on your travels too.

4. COS

Ask any self-proclaimed minimalist to list out their favorite brands, and chances are COS will make the cut. The Swedish brand marries architectural design with a muted aesthetic that works year-round.

Available in sizes 2 to 10. 

5. Khaite

Created by Cate Holstein, Khaite has become a celebrity favorite for its luxe basics. While it may not be a traditionally minimalistic brand, its knack for marrying simplicity with a certain New York vibe makes it edgy.

6. Toit Volant

If your signature look is simple with an elegant twist, Toit Volant is the contemporary answer to your minimalistic needs. With versatile dresses, jumpsuits, and oversize tops, this fashion-forward brand is both progressive and classic in its own right.

7. Universal Standard

Universal Standard has set itself apart as a body-positive, size-inclusive minimalistic label. Because its designs are utilitarian and sleek all at once, Universal Standard's pieces work for both the office and the weekends.

If a capsule wardrobe is your thing, minimalistic dressing makes it especially easy. Try your hand at it with any of the pieces above.
