How to Pick Versatile Accessories as a Minimalist

Some people may think that having a minimalist wardrobe is boring. Wrong! Having a minimalist wardrobe just means you have a closet full of intentional pieces that are high quality and versatile. And the best way to dress up that minimalist wardrobe is to accessorize! Accessories are your friends! They add spice, pizazz, and individuality to your look. But don’t go crazy and start collecting all the things because then you’ll just end up with clutter. Here are some tips on how to pick versatile accessories as a minimalist so you can add that spice to those “boring” outfits!

Timeless

When choosing which accessories will go well with your wardrobe, make sure you pick pieces that are timeless. Accessories that you will wear for years! Accessories that are classy and functional. Pieces that you can pass down. Sure, you can add a few trendy pieces. But the ones that you’ll reach for over and over will be the ones that are timeless.

Versatile

You definitely want to pick versatile accessories! Pieces that can be worn in different seasons, with different looks, dressed up or dressed down. Those versatile pieces will allow you to have less but still look great.

High Quality 

Who wants to invest in pieces that will fall apart or break or wear down after only a few wears?? Not me! Make sure you choose wisely and invest in higher quality pieces so they’ll last longer! By making a bigger investment up front, you’ll actually end up saving money because the cost per wear ratio will be better.

Personality

When considering what to purchase, make sure you take into account your personality! If you like color, then add some flare! If you like clean lines, then add classy pieces. If you like simple, then look for minimal pieces. Don’t sacrifice your personality when you’re trying to live a simpler life. You can still embrace your personality and individuality.
