Some of the most stylish women we know are the ones who cast aside the trends and instead fill their wardrobes with timeless basics. That said, being a minimalist isn't easy—particularly in the summer months. Spring and autumn are the ideal months for those with pared-back aesthetics, as this is the time brands tend to invest heavily in essentials like blazers, knits, jeans and simple dresses. In summer, when fashion becomes more frivolous with statement prints and exaggerated silhouettes, it can be hard to maintain your penchant for austere outfits. To help you keep your minimalistic look year-round, we turned to some of our favourite influencers to find the best simple warm-weather ensembles. From Brittany's navy midi dress to Sylvie's denim cycling shorts, keep scrolling to see and shop seven minimalist summer outfits.
Style Notes: Minimalism isn't all about trousers and shirting; midi dresses with clean silhouettes in block colours are the ideal addition for your summertime wardrobe. Just add espadrilles and metal earrings.
Style Notes:Arket's pleated skirt was a minimalist must-have at the start of the year. Make like Chrystelle and give it a summery overhaul with a yellow iteration and a plain white T-shirt and strappy sandals.
