Minimalist fashion has definitely grown within the past few years, and I feel as if it will continue to grow at a steady rate. Nowadays people are beginning to appreciate it more, along with the fact that it gives off a mature aesthetic. When it comes to minimal style in streetwear, simplicity is key and is the most beautiful way of fashion. It’s all in the minor details those clean cuts, minimalistic, the fabric and elegance of design. The key to great minimalist outfits is the idea of implied lines. In photography, an implied line is any feature that draws the eye along a certain path of direction.
Think of it like this: every colour change, hem, stitch and pattern on a piece of clothing is an implied line. More lines create more information, and therefore, more work your brain has to process. If there are fewer distractions, there’s less thought between you and understanding what you see, creating the aesthetic experience (pure emotion and sensation) that much more effectively.
The best minimalist outfits stick to solid colors, simple patterns, and sleek designs regardless of context. Whatever you wear, your clothes should drip simplicity. Clean lines? Check. Minimal graphics? You bet. White t-shirts, overcoats, and neutral-coloured crewneck sweaters are the name of the game here.
Applying these style tips to streetwear is as easy as relaxing in a pool on a hot summer day. In clothing, styling, and life: just don’t try too hard. That’s the best advice we can give for now. Minimalism here often means tapered sweats, unadorned bomber jackets, and extended shirts that emphasize clean lines. Pair any of the above with retro-inspired sneakers and a solid colour cap or hat to nail the look.
Flashy text and graphics are the exact opposite of the understated minimalist style. Color-matching “tonal” logos get an under-the-radar pass from time to time, but as a rule, minimize the distractions and let the piece speak for itself. Done right, minimalist streetwear is effortless fresh and will continue to be part of the ever growing streetwear fashion.
