What is it? What does it have to do with my clothes? Minimalism could be considered the simplest expression of art, but in its universal essence it preserves, in its simplicity, all the inapparent complexity. The minimum of elements, the most basic expressions, the use of the purest colors, the tiny display of simple geometric figures, and the use of a primary language could fool us, but the truth is that the integral function of all the characteristics in relation to blank spaces, as well as physical silences, presents a difficulty of immense magnitude, to any artist who wishes to master the minimalist style in its maximum silent expression.
As an aesthetic trend, minimalism is derived from pop art, where it found a space in the mass media, putting in the eye of the world a sense of individuality and privacy, giving equal importance to both the environment and the elements that make up the work. However, minimalism has become a way of understanding the world around us, expressing itself in a personalized style of dressing or decorating spaces. Having a minimalist style can mean sticking to a limited color palette, having a simple silhouette for clothes, keeping accessories reduced, but it can also mean using color in a context where less is done more, due to its relationship with the space and the absence of repetitive patterns.
At first glance, it might seem easy to achieve simplicity by using few elements, but the complete composition turns into a grandiose challenge, due to the symmetrical and pictorial perfection demanded by the purest minimalist style. That’s why quality is another important factor when considering adopting the minimalist style, so we have to distinguish the work with superior quality materials, which provide nuances of moderate luxury. As a final result, the cuts need to be precise, the details impeccable and the final essence will be quite reserved.
When dressing, minimalism will become a distinguishing feature, where the cuts, both feminine and masculine, are especially more in their functionality than in the excess, resulting in a feeling of relaxation and remarkable elegance. The silhouettes are embellished with clean lines, simple patterns and balanced details, to highlight a practical and ingenious sense. So, Next time you dress up, think about adding some minimalism aspects to your clothing. It could be the difference on your way to finding the perfect outfit.
