5 Minimalist Outfits for Autumn

Posted in Fashion
on October 17, 2016

Minimalism is something I’m learning and incorporating more into my every day life. So far, I’ve been loving every minute of it. I feel less stressed, more focused, and happier with adopting some of the minimalist habits.

One area I’ve been focusing on the last few months is my style. Last month, I shared my September edition of “5 Looks I’m Lusting For,” which featured more neutral-only and neutral-based looks. If you knew me five years ago, I was obsessed with bright colors. There was actually a period in time where I didn’t own any black. (I was young and stupid, don’t judge—haha!) Flash forward to present day, and more than 60 percent of my wardrobe contains neutrals.

I want to share my progression of style, and where I see my style going in the future with this minimalist mindset. So, I’m sharing five minimalist outfits you can wear for Autumn! I hope you find a little inspiration from these looks, and can incorporate them into your your wardrobe for the season.

There’s nothing better than bulky sweaters, cute coats, and booties for the season. Aside from all the trendy pieces, it’s chic because of the neutral colors. People think minimalists only wear black and white, but you can wear colors and still be a minimalist. As long as you find a color palette that works for you and your style, and only have essentials that you can mix with several outfits, you are on the right track!

I’m not going to lie, everything about this makes me fall in love with the idea of dressing minimally. I love an all-black outfit with the addition of the contrasting color to make things pop. In this case, the light, nude heels and coat paired together makes the entire outfit more vibrant yet classic. 739c48c51e76887fd2e9d12192349068I love to throw in a wildcard option that’s out of my comfort zone. As a working woman, I don’t think I could ever pull off a dressy element like a midi skirt and pair it with casual sneakers like the photos above. But, never say never. I love this look, and I like that there’s a contrast from professional and comfortable mixed together. Who knows, maybe I’ll rock some sneakers with a skirt for this season.8fcf2e39aae7e67b381c2b89fd39cb38“Doe she only like camel-colored coats?!” No, definitely not. But I will say I think they’re an amazing color to pull off during Autumn, so I might as well show you some options while you’re reading through this post. Again, an all-black outfit for the base of the outfit paired with another neutral like camel makes the outfit pop! I’m definitely in the market for a camel coat after writing this post.

Adding little pops of color and patterns can pull the entire look together. I love the addition of a burgundy bag with these fun, leopard flats. This adds a little excitement to a simple, comfortable look. I’ve been on the hunt for leopard flats, and hoping I can find some as cute as these above!
