What is minimalism really about? When we talk about minimalism in quantity of pieces of clothing – think capsule wardrobe! – we aim to be more ecological, efficient and versatile. Style-wise, minimalism is rather inspired by a current that puts forward neutral, modern pieces, with very clean lines. Here, we suggest effective and current ways to transform your wardrobe into a minimalist dream!


THE MINIMALIST WARDROBE

Our stylists are often asked to create minimalist wardrobes. Few pieces that you can mix to create lots of outfits... that's happiness, isn't it? In addition to being super-efficient, capsule-style wardrobes are eco-friendly and good for your wallet! But putting it together can be a bit tricky. Let us help!

First of all, this type of wardrobe is not for everyone. For example, if you're the type who has a super classic dress code at work and your weekends are dedicated to sports and going out with friends, you will probably need more diversity in your wardrobe. However, if you have both a casual style in the office and on the weekends, then the minimalist wardrobe will work great with your lifestyle.

To have a nice minimalist wardrobe, you first need very good basics. Here, we don't skimp on quality! Neutral pants, well-cut jeans, blouses with perfect “fits” and extra soft sweaters. Let’s go.
