Minimalist Must-Haves

449
Are you a minimalist when it comes to clothing? Do you love the simplistic, clean, yet fashionable appearance that’s been on the runway recently? Well, who doesn’t? After all, it’s hard to go wrong with a B&W look. Minimalist pieces work perfectly for any beginner fashionista who needs staple clothing pieces that will match nearly anything. That said, here are a few key accessories and clothing items to stock up in your closet to maintain a classy, minimalism look!

1. A Daniel Wellington watch. These watches scream gentleman (or gentlelady)! They’re so simple, yet make a statement and will pair well with any other arm accessories. You can picture this item looking right in place on a man in a suit and tie or a girl in a casual, tom-boy outfit.

 

2. White button-down. Need I say more? Pretty much everyone needs this in their closet. It looks professional and crisp when paired with a pair of jeans or a skirt. You can dress it up or down any way you like.

3. Boyfriend blazer and jeans. The loose fit of these pieces make your overall look seem so much more relaxed, but not lazy. In fact, any blazer will pretty much make you look ten times more put together. Boyfriend jeans are great for girls who are constantly on-the-go, and will easily suit a person who likes to keep a comfortable and laid-back lifestyle.

 

4. Adidas Superstar sneakers. These shoes give off an athletic feel but are polished in appearance so they pair well with an outfit not just on the sporty side, but on the dressy side as well. Every person should own a pair of sneakers, but every minimalist should own a pair that comes in black and white.

5. Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses. Even though we are already approaching winter, Ray-Ban sunglasses will keep you looking cool all year round. Wear it on your face on tuck it in the opening of your shirt. Even when you’re not wearing it the right way, it still looks good on you. The shape of the glasses suits every face shape and will stay in style for ages to come. The reflector lenses come in a variety of shades, too, so you can decide which color you like best to fit your personal taste.

6. Chanel quilted bag. The brand itself pretty much represents a classy lady. These bags are gorgeous, and you will be sure to get your money’s worth out of it because it will go with almost any outfit.

7. Oversized knit sweater. Not only are they extremely comfy, but they look adorable when worn with leggings or skinny jeans. It’s especially nice to have in the winter. Who says you can’t still look fashionable in the snow season? You can just picture yourself wearing one cuddled in your bed sipping a warm mug of cocoa.

 

8. Skinny strap black heels. These will make you look like your head is on your shoulders. Sophisticated, feminine, and sleek are a few words to summarize how you’d look in these. Oh, and taller. Height is always a nice thing to add to a look. You’ll be sure to feel like a real woman in these.

9. A plain tee. A black and white striped boatneck tee will look especially Parisian with a beret and any kind of bottom (if you’re feeling fancy). Simple tops can never go wrong with a red lip and will have you looking modest, but pretty. They can be worn for any casual occasion and everybody needs one.

10.LBD (little black dress). There will never be an event where you don’t need one of these. There are so many different shapes and styles of LBDs out there for all the ladies, so you can be certain to find one that will compliment every curve and edge of your own body. A solid black dress will make you feel just the right amount of sexy while still looking effortless. It’s a timeless piece, and a necessity for every girl.

Inspired by @oldsaltlake, we're celebrating #throwbackthursday with a favorite snapshot of early 20th century Salt Lake City. 🏖️⁠

Photos shared by @oldsaltlake are inspiring millennials and zoomers decades later with visions of a different city: one with easily accessible public transportation, walkable streets, local businesses (open late) and distinctive architecture.⁠

Why did Utah's only Titanic passenger not survive her journey?⁠

The descendants of Irene Corbett believe that the 30-year-old teacher sacrificed her life to save others. It's one of the many ways this remarkable figure bucked tradition and forged her own trail.⁠

"We must have done something right, cause you guys kept coming back."⁠

@bluepelatedinerslc, one of Salt Lake's signature spots for everyone from hungover college kids to vegan food lovers, will be closing its doors this May after more than two decades of service. It's the latest casualty in a brutal year for the restaurant industry. ⁠

Tony Caputo, a food evangelist and founding father of today’s SLC food community, passed away last night.⁠

Tony started @caputosmarket in 1997, bringing his passion for the cuisine of his heritage to Utah tables. Most days during the lunch rush you’d find Tony behind the counter slicing meat and cheeses and then, after it wound down, holding court out front. He’d often rush back behind the counter and holler over his shoulder, “you have to try this!" only to return with a sample bite of veiny cheese, a paper-thin leaf of prosciutto or a perfectly crisp amaretti cookie that he’d recently added to his menagerie of taste. For his many contributions to Salt Lake City, we awarded Tony with a Lifetime Achievement Dining Award in 2007.⁠

Today, we're sending love to @caputosmarket and the many people whose lives were touched by Tony. A full tribute is on our website now. ❤️

Why is the Pleasant Grove theme park Evermore suing one of the most powerful women in music? Long story short: a playground for those who would choose lore over folklore is taking on Taylor Swift over the name of her most recent album. Both parties have their reputation on the line in a battle of undercover Swifties and novelty mug disputes. Will Evermore hit the gold rush? Or did they cross the wrong mad woman? The full story is at the link in our bio. ...

Even in the exploration boom of the 1800s, nobody dared to explore the terrain flowing through the Green and the Colorado Rivers.⁠

That is, nobody until Major John W. Powell said the 19th Century equivalent of “Hey man, hold my beer while I try this.”⁠

Today, we are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2021 Blue Plate Awards! ⁠🎉⁠

These prizes honor the growers, food evangelists, grocers, servers, bakers, chefs, bartenders and restaurateurs who do more than put good food on the table—they make our community a better place to live. This year, just surviving as a local business deserves an award, but each of our Blue Plate winners did more than that. They made us grateful for every person involved in the essential act of feeding us.⁠ 🍽⁠

At the link in our bio, we have the full list of winners, a celebration of feats of COVID creativity and a tribute to restaurants we lost this year. If you’re hungry for more, pick up a copy on newsstands March 1! Plus, check out our Instagram for spotlights on some of the Blue Plate winners. ⁠

This year’s Blue Plate Awards are the first without our beloved Executive Editor Mary Brown Malouf. We dedicate them to her, our town’s biggest food fan, critic and champion. xoxomm⁠ 💙

2021 Blue Plate Award winner: @ricobrandut for Staying in Beansness⁠

Last summer, it seemed that Rico would be another victim of rapid gentrification in Salt Lake. Luckily, Rico was able to find a new home in Poplar Grove and now plans to add even more employees. It’s a last-minute happy ending for a community leader who literally wears his mission on his sleeve, courtesy a tattoo in bright red block letters: “pay it forward.” 💙⁠
