Don’t ever be afraid to be judged about how you dressed, because after all styling is about expressing your true self and no one could ever tell you about what you should or should not wear, okay? Embrace your self-identity, and that could only be done by you.

MINIMALIST FASHION TREND
The number four rule? Follow the Minimalist Fashion Trend. Minimalism usually seen as something plain, boring and monotonous, especially when it is associated with fashion. But what does minimalist fashion actually mean? It is a trend that emphasises simplicity as its major principle. Keeping it neutral and aesthetic are two main keys to minimalist fashion, but that does not mean you cannot be playful or fearless.

The most prominent thing from minimalist fashion is the color selection that tends to be either monochromatic or soft. Minimalist fashion can also be categorized as a wearable fashion trend for any occasion. Hans Hofmann, a German-born American artist, once stated about minimalist fashion that says, “The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak”. That statement is actually truly accurate to explain how beneficial minimalist fashion could be. It’s a friendly reminder to everyone who barely takes care of what is important and what is not. In addition, you could start to be a lot more mindful when dressing up and learn to accept yourself more by being a fashion minimalist.

In conclusion, fashion can bring you both advantages and disadvantages. There are many ways to bring happiness of styling into your daily life. It all comes back to you. You are the one who can decide the true application of fashion itself. You may never realize how much time, energy and money you have wasted for fashion. You may have forgotten about your true personality, because you are too busy and confused picking up which outfit fits you.

Unfortunately, those bad habits could restrain your ideas and creativity when it comes to dressing up.
