Minimalists only wear neutral colours, yap that's true, but it does not have to be. If you want to be a minimalist but love to have colour in your wardrobe don't loose hope, just because most of minimalists prefer basic colours it doesn't mean you can't be a minimalist and still have a colourful wardrobe.
There are different ways you can add colour into your wardrobe and I'm going to give you just a few tips and examples on how you can accomplish that:
+ Define your colour palette. You need to know which colours you like and look good on you, otherwise you will end up with a bunch of pieces in the wrong colour palette and you won't look good in them.
+ Look at what you already have. If before you declutter you see that you own a lot of pink and purple, than you know that those two colours are probably colours that you love and look good on you.
+ Add colours using accessories. You can add pops of colours using scarf's or bags or shoes, and still keep a basic colour wardrobe, it's like the best of both worlds.
+ A statement coat. Choosing a piece of outerwear that will give you the pop of colour that you need is also a great way to add colour into your wardrobe. A big yellow coat could be you signature look for the Winter, and everyone would recognize you from miles away.
For me, personally, I like to keep my colour scheme neutral, but from time to time I do find an accessories or a pair of shoes with a pop of colour. I have been coveting this one bright blue bag for ages, but I still haven't got my hands on it. I also love printed scarves, but I still haven't found "the one".
