Creating a minimalist wardrobe is the easy part. Maintaining it, however, is the challenge. With discounted sales and mark downs here and there, it's quite difficult to fight the temptation to go shopping. So to help you stay in line with your resolution to continue curating and streamlining your closet, here are three simple commandments you must follow:
1. Find your best colors or neutrals.
Don't get distracted with the slew of bright colors you see on the shopping windows. When you find the right hues best suited to your skin tone, you'll be able to stick to a palette that works every time. This eliminates the effort in mixing and matching items from your wardrobe.
2. Opt for staples with an edge.
Having a minimalist wardrobe doesn't mean you have to stick to plain-looking garments. Play with proportions, slhouettes, and cuts to upgrade and elevate your closet basics.
3. Consider an adult uniform.
Knowing what works well for your body and sartorial taste means you can create your own signature look. This does not only cut in half the time you spend styling yourself, it also helps you maintain a low-maintenance wardrobe.
