How to build your wardrobe: Minimalist Style
I’ve always believed that less is more especially when it comes to fashion. Now don’t get me wrong, I love statement jewellery vibrant colours and bold patterns .But at my core I am a minimalist gal and my wardrobe is filled with many shades of neutrals that often create my monochromatic looks.

Building my wardrobe with neutrals allows me to wear bold accent pieces while still looking polished. For me minimalist style means simple , edgy, timeless ,and quality clothing . As a fat woman I am thrilled that brands and designers like Mynt 1792,Eloquii, Monif C, Liesl Binx, Stefanie Bezaire are creating contemporary designs for the plus size women. Brands like Carmakoma embrace minimalism and create fashion that effortlessly build your wardrobe.
With Sping around the corner brands have released their Spring lookbook and they are filled with florals, black and white, sporty chic, pastels , metallics, ruffles and more. But remember before you buy the latest trend ask yourself the following questions.
Will I wear this next year/season?
Can I wear this item with multiple pieces of clothing
Is this garment high quality and how much am I willing to pay to ensure that it will stand the test of time?
Do I actually like the item?
Why am I buying it?
