Ah, minimalism. There’s so much to say about how sartorial simplicity can be, but let’s keep this minimal. A few highlights of essentialist styling: it’s low-effort yet high-impact, it show just how deep your fashion know-how goes, and it’s perfect for spring.

When done rightly, minimalism leads to maximal curb appeal. So if you want to amp up your pared-down game, the facts are these: monochrome schemes are your key, geometric accessories are your friend, and you should never underestimate the power of an on-trend shoes.

The first step to mastering minimalism is of course your basic essential piece. Let’s start with a dress. Pick one in a pastel, spring-like color, and don’t be afraid of something with a little drama in its shape.

As far as accessories, pick a pair of sunglasses or a clutch color-matched to the dress, and then go for a contrasting hue in everything else. Simple, sleek, sartorial.
