5 Things on Every Minimalist’s Summer Shopping List

Opening an inbox to triple-digit unread emails is instantly overwhelming; opening a congested closet has a similar effect. So how do you flag future impulse buys, filter out the junk, and avoid throwing down only to archive later? Subscribe to a streamlined approach: Go for neutrals with novelty details you can stretch through the warmer months and simplify with matching sets that read easy and sophisticated. This sensible way of planning your wardrobe makes space for the practical pieces you’ll wear 24/7—the ones that push conventional boundaries of minimalism while proving, again and again, that less really is more.

    GO LONG

    Somewhere between the confidence of short shorts and the sophistication of culottes are the so-baggy-they’re-chic crossover shorts. Team with equally uncomplicated tops and these monochrome sets are minimalism at its smartest.

    LIGHTEN UP

    It is summer after all. And if there’s one thing we know to be true, it’s that beige doesn’t age, and crisp whites always feel right. Shift dresses, shirtdresses, dresses that rival your most laid-back tees—you have preferences? We’ve got options.
