If you are a interested both in minimalism and in French girl style, you might want to consider creating a French minimalist wardrobe.
First, let’s define minimalist style.
The concept of minimalist style involves creating a smaller wardrobe as part of an effort toward living better with less. Aesthetically, minimalist style often means choosing neutral colors like black, white and grey.
But that typical color palette isn’t mandatory. Each person’s style is unique.
French minimalist style adds classic French girl inspiration and influence to the process of creating a smaller capsule wardrobe.
This is the magic of French girl style — you know it’s classic and simple and chic, but there’s an element of je ne sais quoi that makes getting dressed more of an art form than a routine. However, there are key pieces that will help you achieve that undeniably chic French-girl style, no matter where you are in the world. These pieces must be comfortable enough for leisurely strolls, layered properly for whatever weather changes might happen in the afternoon..., stylish enough for the best possible occasion..., and classic enough to be in style… - The Every Girl, theeverygirl.com
French Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe: 7 Essential Basics
What exactly is a basic?…
Basics are plain or simple, and usually are solid colors. They are practical, and must serve a purpose.
They are background pieces that go well with the items in your wardrobe that command more attention. And ideally, they don’t cost a lot of money and they are easy to find.
The way I know whether something is considered a ‘basic’ or not is by determining whether it serves a practical purpose first and foremost. For example, I’d categorize oversized sweaters as a statement piece as they aren’t intentionally practical. They are meant to achieve a certain “look” moreso than a fitted sweater, which does a better job of actually keeping you warm. - frenchgirldaily.com
