Minimalist Must-Haves

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.

Gayle Dowdle as Queen Elizabeth I of England ⁠

@dowdledesign is the queen of renaissance fairs and comic conventions. Dowdle began cosplaying six years ago and has been planning to recreate Queen Elizabeth I ever since. She spent as many as 700 hours constructing the ensemble. She entered her cosplay into the @fanxsaltlake 2019 cosplay contest, winning first prize. Since, she has continued to make upgrades to the royal cosplay she has created. “My dress will never be finished,” she says. 👑⁠

The wig is actually made of Dowdle’s own hair, which she cut off before beginning chemotherapy treatments last year. She says, “When I wear this wig, I don’t feel like Gayle with cancer, I just feel like Gayle again.” ⁠

Missy Moody as Giselle from "Enchanted"⁠

@madamemoodycosplay has competed on the stage at comic conventions from Salt Lake City to New York in Giselle’s massive wedding gown from Disney’s "Enchanted." The self-taught seamstress has remade the dress five times over the course of four years, eventually wearing it to her very own nuptials. ⁠✨⁠

While Moody’s Giselle cosplay has been hailed as screen accurate, Moody advises, “Just have fun with cosplay. Don’t worry too much about accuracy. It’s OK to take some shortcuts.”⁠

Ryan Bielik as Caleb Widogast from "Critical Role"⁠

“It was a demanding mistress,” @moody_kittens says of his Caleb cosplay, his take on a character from the Dungeons & Dragons live-streaming sensation turned multimedia empire "Critical Role." Bielik started cosplaying in 2013 and typically attends three conventions per year. After the pandemic, his Caleb cosplay represents a return to form: an obsessive attention to detail. Bielik plans to publicly debut his Caleb cosplay this year at @fanxsaltlake, where he will also enter the cosplay contest. 🪶

“I wanted something elegant to do—flashy, colorful. Something with a lot of grace in the costume,” says Bielik. ⁠

Kimber Gabryszak as Brienne of Tarth from "Game of Thrones"⁠

@kimber.and.connie.cosplay sets a high bar for herself. “I love to be as screen-accurate as possible,” she says. Gabryszak has always loved costuming, “I was cosplaying before I realized what cosplaying was.” But she did not attend her first comic convention until 2015. She says, “Brienne is the most ambitious character I have ever cosplayed.” Gabryszak had to learn leatherworking, for example, but by far the most difficult undertaking was constructing the chainmail. ⚔️ ⁠

"I like doing villains or people with a unique appearance who might not be as conventionally pretty,” she says. “Brienne is this tough, badass, giant, imposing woman.”⁠
