minimalist clothing is what I most need for my closet. I only buy keystones since I really only live for essential pieces, which results in having very few items hanging in my closet. I always try to mix and match and play with thoughtfully selected pieces.
buying essential pieces turns out to be not only economical but also a terrific investment because they can be worn continuously. therefore, the products I'm bringing today are popular trends that will never go out of style. I promise you that in five years, we'll still be talking about them! in the worst case, they'll be cyclical and continually return.
2. jeansI really don't care about the fit, in all honesty. you only need to select the style that feels correct to you and that makes you feel good because every brand has a variety of styles available. high or low waist thus doesn't really matter. what matters most is that cool jeans are a must for this season.
3. denim shirttoo late last season? I'm not sure... but I do know that I adore this particular uniform trend. To be on the safe side, mix some Levi's kit with some gold jewellery and a tiny bag... and you're ready to go.
4. tank top
loewe set the trend, but suddenly other companies start to follow the lead. We can even customize them thanks to fast fashion. Personally, I love the simple basic without branding or logos. The best two choices, in my opinion, are loewe (seemingly out of reach) or a timeless, classic tank top that doesn't have any logos but yet ends up being perfect.
5. blazerthe final piece is the perfect designer blazer, which I have spent a lot of time searching for but still haven't found. both toteme and frankie store look like wise options. if someone discovers the perfect one, please let me know!
to ultimate perfection... simply combine these pieces with some CINCO products. for those who know me, I don't live without my 15 gold ear piercings, elin bracelet, and hannah necklace. whether I'm wearing pyjamas or a party dress, I never take them off and even go to sleep wearing them. those are the minimal and elegant, understated CINCO items of my dreams!
