Minimalist style means having as few clothes in your wardrobe that make you feel comfortable and brings joy. It is said to be the key to a happier and more sustainable life. Keep reading to discover how to start your simple wardrobe, as well as our favorite brands if you’re looking for some simple staples.

Minimalism: Rejecting the Chaos of Fast Fashion

The dangers of fast fashion are well known. Widespread water pollution through the use of cheap and toxic dyes, mountains of textile waste, the ubiquitous use of fossil fuel-based materials such as polyester, pressure on cotton farmers… The list goes on. From this chaos, a trend emerged that rejects all that – minimalism. It’s time to ask questions: Is a simple wardrobe the key to a happier and more sustainable life?

It’s not just fashion that has gotten out of hand. Fast fashion ills reflect the global thirst for more things at cheaper and cheaper prices. This is supported by advertisers pushing consumerism at every opportunity, which research suggests can increase anxiety levels – think FOMO and “keep up with neighbors.”

If you’re sitting there feeling overwhelmed by the stress of keeping up with technology, cars, or fashion, and don’t know what to do about it, stay connected. There is a growing trend in opposition to consumerism and fast fashion, which promotes benefits such as more time, less stress, as well as improved financial health and sustainability. And the best part is that we can all do something now that will impact our overall happiness and footprint on the planet.

What is simple fashion?

If you’ve heard of Marie Kondo, you may already have an idea of what minimalism is. Simplicity consists in stripping away what is unnecessary, leaving things that provide you with real value and pleasure. Minimalism means having the least amount of clothes in your wardrobe that you feel is right for you and brings happiness.

Minimalism is the antithesis of the modern consumer narrative – and for good reason. In a global market that wants you to consume more and more, simplicity says “Hello! Have you ever thought about owning less on purpose? “Less debt, less mess, less pressure, less stuff. The result? Less debt and stress for you, and less valuable resources being extracted for things you don’t really need. How to participate, ask? Start with your clothes.

Slow down fashion and keep a simple wardrobe

Slow fashion is the simple subculture specialized in the fashion industry. Instead of shopping hard to keep up with weekly trends and throw away clothes after wearing them once a Saturday night also known as financially stressful and unusually wasteful, the spirit is “buy less, choose well, make it last.”

My entry point into simplicity and slow fashion was through my wardrobe. When I first started my simple journey about 4 years ago, I went through every piece of clothing I owned and donated, threw away, or kept it. I dumped about 80% of what I owned and felt liberated (and that was only the first time). This process literally reconnected the way I think about buying things and the stress associated with consumerism. I’m now looking for high-quality sustainable items or more cost-saving items than the sheer quantity. If I haven’t seen shops for months on end, who cares?

If I was to bring something new into my life, I must love it. To this day, I haven’t missed a single item I’ve given up, because the lightness that comes with getting rid of excess clutter is simply life-changing. I invite you to try it… Like now. Follow my work to get started. Keep only items that make you feel impressed when you wear them. But before you get started and get started, here are some tips.
