Minimal

Belle in Black and White
Shirt - & Other Stories (old)  /  Trousers - Zara  /  Shoes - Muji  /  Ear cuff - & Other Stories (old)

I know maximalism is creeping back into fashion (although I guess creeping isn't the right verb there - maximalism doesn't really creep does it) and I can't wait to get to trying on giant faux fur coats that don't suit me but I'll end up loving anyway. But before the experimenting begins I'm giving minimalism some attention, especially since the weather was still decent on the day I wore this outfit.

I bought this shirt a few years ago after getting into Jessica & Krystal, a reality show that followed Kpop's arguably most famous sisters (Jessica was previously in Girls' Generation, Krystal is part of f(x)). Both are style icons - Jessica has her own clothing brand called Blanc & Eclare. But it's Krystal's more minimal, androgynous style I've always been more drawn to, which is why I got this shirt from & Other Stories when it went on sale. These trousers were a more recent purchase from when I went on a mission to find culottes. And I did find them, these are just culottes for people taller than 5'3". I'll probably hem them at some point. I went minimal with the accessories too - the white marble earring was a gift from a friend and the ear cuff is an old & Other Stories buy.
