When building a minimalist wardrobe there are a few key pieces that we must include in our wardrobe planning. These are just the pieces that, in my opinion, should be in a minimalist wardrobe. Every person has their own ideals and likes, so this all depends of your personal taste.
Ankle Boots // I live in this baby's. They look great with pretty much anything, from jeans to skirts and dresses. I own a pair in taupe but I'm on the hunt for a black pair.
Black Dress/Jumpsuit // a basic in any closet is a black dress.. but since I don't like dresses I got my hands on a jumpsuit that looks almost like a dress, so it's a 2 in 1 deal!
Grey Knit // it does not have to be grey, but it must be a good knit, that you love and could wear it all Winter.
Good quality Winter Coat // not a cheap one that will make you have to buy one every Winter. A classic style that fit's you great and keeps you worm on the cold days.
Blouse // white, black or with a pattern. Anything can work, this blouse will be your go to piece for any formal event (interview, dinner) or any more relaxed event. The options are endless.
Dressy top // another great piece that can be worn no lots of occasions, put a blazer on top and you have a work outfit. Combine it with a skirt and you have a dinner/night outfit.
Dark jeans // I prefer dark blue or black. They go with everything and can be worn in a relaxed way or you can also dress them up. Don't like black or blue? Just go for the normal dark jean.
Structured blazer // A must to make your outfits more professional. I prefer black, but white is a great option.
A nice bag // the style is up to you, just make sure that the colour can go with all you outfits and that you feel comfortable walking around with it.
