STAYING MINIMALISTIC – perfect way to happiness or into asylum
The absolute trend this season is minimalism in everything – in apartments, clothes and accessories. If you are a fashionista, you already got it but do you actually know how to stay trendy and not get crazy? Because some worry that it can actually happen.
First, let’s make it clear what definitely minimalism is. It’s a type of style known for elegance and restraint. There’re several MUST-NO: no multilayers, no bright and rich colors and no extra décor. Besides, this trend can be noticed by clear-cut silhouette and high-quality natural fabric. These are fair points why all of us are simply in love with this simple but classy style. By the way, sales of ‘high-heels’ worldwide decreased dramatically last year and product owners blame minimalism for it – women now learned that you can look feminine without hurting your legs.
However, some go even further and exclude fancy accents from their outfits. This is where we need to sound the alarm and ask: may giving up bright spots in your everyday style or in design of your house POTENTIALLY cause some severe problems with mental health? Some people fear that cutting out brightness from your outfits may be the main reason for depression.
Psychologists say – not really! In some cases it’s strongly recommended to live in a minimalistic way to recover from some stressful experience. But here’s the point – this works only by embracing a whole bunch of this lifestyle. To mention but one thing – a glorious example of Scandinavian people who are used to living surrounded by minimalism for ages. By the way, they are considered the happiest people on the planet. This is the fact to think of.
Back to fashion. As to this particular side of the minimalist philosophy, there’re no relevant studies on the matter that can be trusted. However, as for us we would recommend you not to refuse making vivid fashion accents in your outfits, especially in winter – when we all need some brightness and warm love. Just remember – staying minimalistic doesn’t mean being boring. It means put your comfort first, stay classy and simple at the same time and just being who you are.
