As we’re officially into the new year, you may have 1 of 2 outfit goals. Maybe you’re tired of all the sweats that 2020 brought so your goal is to glam.it.up! Or maybe you liked being basic and comfortable in your oversized tees and pajamas and your goal is to keep it that way. How about a compromise? Embrace minimalist fashion! From the number of clothes you have to the styles and colors, minimalist fashion likes to keep it simple. But there’s nothing sloppy, boring, or too overdone about it. With key pieces and strategic repeats, here are 7 minimalist outfit ideas for you- one for every day this week!

7 Minimalist Outfit Ideas for Every Day This Week

1. white tee + black jeans + brown flats + tote bag
The perfect casual and simple look for your day to day life. The cognac flats add a pop of “color” to this look. Yep, you can still be into minimalist outfits and have pops of color! 😉

2. sweater + slacks + coat + sneakers + tote bag
Business meets casual. The tailored coat and slacks are smart pieces, yet the sneakers and relaxed bag style make this outfit more doable for your day to day life.

3. turtleneck + coat + jeans + heels + structured bag
Slim jeans paired with a top-notch coat and heels scream chic power dressing! I bet there will be more and more office days in the future, but if heels aren’t your thing and you want to wear this look now, switch out the heels for mule slides.

4. tee + blazer + black jeans + ankle boots + tote bag + pendant necklace
Without the blazer, this look could definitely pass as something a model would wear walking through JFK airport. Add a blazer and you get the best of both worlds- street style chic! All black with a pop of camel is interesting and quality ankle boots will take your outfit up a notch.

5. turtleneck + slacks + loafers + structured bag
Bored with jeans? Try slacks! Not only are they classic pieces, but pants like these come back around as trendy too. Of course, being trendy is the least of our concerns! 😉 Still, this is a timeless combo you can’t go wrong with. Wear your hair pulled back and pair this look with simple studs to look even more classic.
