Sometimes the most stylish women around aren’t always the trendiest. In fact, there are a number of fashion insiders like Vanessa Traina and Barbara Martelo who are known for their minimalist fashion choices. A simple pair of straight-leg jeans, a T-shirt, a tailored jacket, and easy heels tend to be the pieces they wear on repeat. But how do they manage to look fashionable and cool by sticking to these staples season after season?
Really, minimalist clothing always looks good because the items are timeless and never go out of style. But just because you have a minimalist approach to fashion doesn’t mean you have to shy away from the trends. There’s a way to interpret them while still maintaining a pared-back look. This season, look to strong accessories like sock boots, hoop earrings, or structured bags, and mix them in with everyday basics like turtlenecks and blazers. Ahead, we’re breaking down the essentials.
