Minimalism

Minimalism

It's the idea that by owning less, we free up the time, energy, and money to get the most out of life. The more intentional we are about what we keep, the freer we are to seek fulfillment.

Minimalism encourages us to invest in things we love, instead of accumulating things we like. When you have fewer options, you force yourself into a positive mindset.

Reasons For A Minimalist Closet

Reasons For A Minimalist Closet

  • Tidier closet: you won’t have to dig through items you don’t wear
  • Increased confidence: if all your clothes are your best, you feel good no matter what you put on
  • More time and money: being satisfied with your wardrobe means shopping less so you can use your time and cash on more important things
  • Positive environmental impact: by investing in long-wear clothing, instead of fast fashion, you help prevent waste.

Minimalist Vs Capsule Wardrobe

Minimalist Vs Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule wardrobes are a subsection of minimalist wardrobes that limit how many items of clothing you buy each season. Most capsule wardrobes have 30 items or less.

Minimalist wardrobes are more flexible. There is no set number of items as long as you wear all of them – and they bring you joy.

Choosing What To Keep 

Choosing What To Keep 

To build a sustainable closet, we have to ask where we live, who we are, what we do, and what our goals are. This helps us determine what we truly need and get rid of what we don’t have much use for.

It’s okay to keep some items just because they bring you joy even if you don’t use them often. As long as you’re enjoying your clothing more, you’re doing it right.

Selecting Clothes For Your Style

Selecting Clothes For Your Style

Think about your favorite clothes, as well as the ones you spent the most money on. Chances are, you already have a personal style – you may just not know it yet.

What are your favorite colors and fabrics, and what you feel most confident wearing? These outfits should be the anchor of your closet.

Think About Laundry

Think About Laundry

Just because it fits your style, it doesn’t mean it fits your life. If you can’t afford dry cleaning, don’t buy an expensive suit. 

Remember, minimalism is about making your life easier and more enjoyable. Find outfits that match both your aesthetic and your routine.

Choosing a Color Palette

Having a color palette increases the mixability of your pieces. This means most of your clothes will match and you’ll save time putting outfits together.

Choose what makes you feel the most like yourself and stick to it.

Getting Rid Of Clothes

Getting Rid Of Clothes

  • Donating: to places like Goodwill or the Salvation Army, or friends.
  • Selling: Many independently-owned thrift stores will give you money or store credit for well-preserved pieces.
  • Swap parties: Gather clothes you no longer wear and invite your friends to do the same so you can get together and trade them.
  • Upcycling: there are plenty of youtube videos about how to repurpose old t-shirts into bags, dresses, and even shoes.

Maintaining a Minimalist Wardrobe

Maintaining a Minimalist Wardrobe

Choose long-term clothes carefully and invest in pieces that don’t go out of style, like a black cocktail dress for women or a tailored suit for men. You want these to showcase your best style as you either wear them very often (e. G. Work clothes, coats) or only on special occasions (e. G. Wedding outfits).

On the other hand, seasonal items (e. G. Winter hats or swimsuits) and trendy pieces (e. G. Loud prints or neons) are short term investments that should be cycled out. Commit to having a set number of trendy pieces (5 or less), and trade them out every season.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
