Conscious minimalism is the buzzword these days, be it high-end fashion boutiques or thrift shops, the changes you see around you are all a result of conscious minimalism! For all those wondering how you can be one, here are 4 tips…
Love everything you own! Take a look at your closet and isolate the pieces that get more mileage and separate them from the rest of your wardrobe. Now is the time to do an in-depth analysis of the other pieces left in your wardrobe and figure out why you don’t wear them often. If it’s something trivial that a quick trip to the tailor can fix then you can continue to use them, otherwise there is no point in holding on to stuff that just takes up valuable space in your closet but seldom see the light of day!
Mix and match! For a conscious minimalist, it is essential that you have only those outfits in your closet that you can mix and match! Pieces that can only work solo might not get that much usage and usually tend to stay back! Instead, find new ways to use one-way-only pieces, and when shopping for new pieces, ensure that your new pieces can be mixed and matched!
Understand fashion, colors! The key to looking like a million bucks is to understand the color palette – what colors work for you and what colors work with one another; and also, figuring out the fashion trends that work on you can save you tons, both in terms of money and time!
Accessorize! Owning a few accessories and working with them can weave a magical charm with the existing outfits in your closet. For instance, even if you just have five set of pants and six tops, you can mix them up with a few accessories, say a chunky necklaces, some pendant necklaces, bracelets and the like, and create a generous number of outfit combinations!
