It’s easy elegance and style, with no chance of clashing colours. Read on for a simple guide to minimalist style.

The minimalist style has been around for a while, and it doesn’t look like anyone’s ready to chuck it just yet. In fact, there’s something undeniably elegant and timeless about minimalist style, which is in part due to its versatility and lack of complications.

So if minimalist style is something you’re keen to try, but unsure how to nail it, then our guide, as well as a selection of key pieces, should hopefully help you to pull of the look.


As mentioned already, the beauty of minimalist style is it’s versatility. While the look lends itself to formal ensembles, minimalist style is equally at home with downtime outfits, too. Think along the lines of slim fitting joggers and jersey sweats with sporty features such as zips and elongated silhouettes.


This is probably the easiest to achieve and most common application of minimalist style. If you opt for a predominantly monochrome palette then try playing around with different textures and fabrics to add depth and interest to your outfit.


When it comes to minimalist tailoring, clean cuts and pared-back pieces are key. As much as we love the odd accoutrement when sporting a suit, on this occasion it’s best to keep it simple with the mere addition of a classic pocket square or silver tie bar. Your usual Italian fashion houses are a great reference point for this.
