    0 comments / Posted by Gloria Mok

    Here Downunder, Spring is upon us - and it is the perfect time of the year to add some playfulness to our wardrobe. We’ve just shed our winter layers, come out of hibernation and are ready for less dreary days and most importantly, less dreary outfits. The key to balancing this with sophistication and cool is to look for pieces with an element of playfulness in a neutral colour palette. Look to Australian fashion online influencers, content creators and style bloggers,  and all your favourites will be showing off elevated basics with unexpected twists in varying shades of black, white, grey, blue and khaki.
     
    Here are 10 Spring fashion styles to give you some inspo in creating your perfect playful minimalist wardrobe:
    1. String details around the waist and sophisticated cut-outs gives your back some much-needed love and attention now that the weather is getting warmer.

    The Australian Fashion Online Lookbook Guide To The Ultimate Black Minimal Outfit - OSKAR Asymmetrical Cotton Top

     

    Gone are the days of Australian fashion when we pick and clash prints in every shade of the rainbow. Even with the constant online stream of continually changing fashion outfit inspirations and trends in a myriad of different tones, we still always manage to fall back on the colour black, season after season. This is because we know when we want a chic and sophisticated outfit, black is always the fail-proof, never-disappoint, saving grace - it’s a classic and can make you look and feel effortlessly cool.
     
    The key to avoiding looking boring while still keeping it minimalistic in head-to-toe all black? Mixing it up! Whether it be by playing with textures, shapes, or silhouettes; black can easily be dressed up, down and worn all around town after injecting just a little bit of creativity.
     
    Here are 5 easy steps you can emulate for the ultimate black minimalist outfit:
     
    1. A black textured shirt is super versatile and easily adds interest to your favourite pair of black jeans or trousers. Add a great pair of sunglasses and your Sunday morning is sorted.
    2. Look for interesting pieces that you can build a chic outfit around with existing pieces from your wardrobe. Pair a daring pair of trousers with a basic tee or your favourite black blouse and let it do all the work for you!

    3. Contrast textures - mix leathers, wools, silks and linens to enhance your outfit. The beauty about all black everything is that it never feels to overwhelming!
