I love clothes. Many people think that when you become a minimalist, the appeal of a nice outfit goes away, but it doesn’t. The only difference between pre-minimalist me and post-minimalist me is that I just wear pieces I already own over and over again. Repeated outfits? Who would dare walk out the house with the same outfit they had on last week? Me apparently.
When asked what a minimalist wears, Joshua Fields Millburns from The Minimalists simply said, “a minimalist wears their favorite clothes everyday” and I agree with that statement.
In this blog post, I wanted to show some of my favorite pieces from my wardrobe. Most items are thrifted so I can’t link where I got most of them, but it’ll give you a good sense of my personal style and relieve some of you of the notion that minimalists only wear black t-shirts and jeans everyday (which is actually one of my favorite ensembles).
I actually bought my “Docs” second-hand on Depop at a really good price. They’re a staple piece in my wardrobe because they literally go with every outfit.
Whoever invented “Mom” jeans can you please stand up so I can give you a big hug? I got these jeans two Christmases ago and I have been obsessed ever since. I never had a pair of jeans that were comfy and cute at the same time.
Would I be a minimalist if I didn’t own at least one basic black tee? I bought this shirt from Old Navy 4 years ago and it’s surprisingly still in good condition considering the many wash cycles it has went through so far.
Green bomber jacket
I thrifted this jacket a year and a half ago for 7 bucks and it’s probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s versatile and comfy and, might I add, cute as heck.
These shorts were a hand-me-down and I probably wear them just about everyday.
I’m such a sweater girl. If I could wear them year-round, I would go for it. I recently thrifted this sweater and wore it around my apartment one weekend because I couldn’t wait on the weather to catch up with Fall. I’ve always wanted a sweater exactly like this — oversized, fall colors and soft.
So that’s it for my favorite pieces from my minimalist wardrobe. If you want to know more about simple living head over to my minimalism page.
