Why the minimalist movement is taking over the fashion world
For those who are not familiar with the minimalist movement is an ideology that extends itself into all aspects of life including but not limited to lifestyle, home décor and of course fashion.
It's a way of life that brings scaling back to the foreground. To think that in a fashion climate that is overrun by maximalist styles such as crystal encrusted jackets and neon fluorescent athleisure, minimalism would be swept away just like any other trend. but to think such a thing would be ridiculous, here’s why.

Minimalist fashion is a way for students to downsize their wardrobes and avoid spending hundreds of pounds on the latest trends. Minimalist fashion is so sublime in the fact that you can buy a few simple basics and have a whole weekly rotation of outfits that don’t clash and always look elegant and effortless.
Yes, the skilled tailoring and high-quality fabrics that it takes to create minimalist clothing do come at a cost. But with the right eye, you can purchase these basic, quality items and consider them an investment in style. You will no longer feel the need to buy “the next new thing”.

Neutral hues of beige, grey and khaki go hand in hand. Without question, it’s a fact that style is the most important part of the minimalist movement. Consider this, have you ever seen a minimalist look uncoordinated in their outfit? Of course you haven’t, that’s because it is very hard to not look exquisite in such items.
The style and fit for a minimalist mainly focus on the boxed, figure neutral side of things. Clothing that is light and draped but still looking perfectly tailored.
The speed factors
For those who live a busy lifestyle, who has time to spend half an hour in their wardrobe trying to piece together an outfit? This is when we need to consider the five-minute rule. Opening the doors of a decluttered minimal wardrobe space creates efficiency in your style, you can easily pick out your outfit in five minutes or less and be on your merry way.
Minimalism is not time-consuming, it is freeing, light and effortless, which are all the things a busy person needs in their life to stay efficient.
Appreciation of the little things
Millennials are one of the most advertisement resilient generations—they are less likely to buy into ads or purchase something that they have seen on the side of the bus. Don’t be fooled though, consumerism is still alive and kicking, but taking on the millennial viewpoint should be something everyone needs to consider.
There is a lot more to life than just mindless shopping. When you bring fewer material items into your life, you start to realise that there is more to enjoy in the world. The minimalist movement gives you a different angle of appreciation for the little things in life. When you reach the point of not caring about the number of clothing items you own, you will be truly liberated in life and style.
