Minimalist Style: The Classic Camel Coat


You've probably noticed that my style isn't exactly what you'd call 'minimalist' most of the time. I do love black and white, but colour is always an important part of my outfits, and I love embellishments and eye-catching details.

As I get older though, I do find myself looking for more classic pieces to add to my wardrobe, that I know I'll be able to wear for years to come. One of the items I searched long and hard for this season was a camel-coloured coat: something that would look great with all kinds of basics. I found this perfect one from Shop Maccs, and I love the structural cut.

In the spirit of classic styles, I thought I'd give the whole minimalist look a try; I decided to style the coat with solid black, classic pumps, and a simple and delicate Y-necklace. Usually I'm not a fan of delicate jewellery, but I found that with a minimalist outfit, I actually really liked how it looked! Of course, I still had to infuse a little of my usual style back into the mix, with an awesome Nobis & Grey ear cuff and a bold red lip.

Are you a fan of minimalist style? What classic fashion item is a must-have in your wardrobe?
