Minimalist style is definitely not a way that anyone would describe MY personal style, but it doesn’t mean I don’t admire minimalist dressing in others.
In fact you might be surprised to learn that I’m actually a massive fan of sleek, clean style with neutral colours and a ton of black and white.
I just can’t do it myself.
Seeing as I am so drawn to minimalist style I thought I’d bring you a selection of some of my favourite minimalist style fashion bloggers. These are the girls who live for black and white (and just occasionally a bit of grey or camel!) – they’ve got that Scandi-style art of dressing down to a tee (which, by the way, is always basic white or black).
There’s no over-the-top accessorising. There are no garish patterns or (god forbid!) print clashes. No bold colour combinations or rainbow brights. There’s just tailoring, all the neutrals, black ankle boots and lots of white sneakers.
It’s a style I really yearn for – however I just can’t get my head around wearing black and white when I feel the need to WEAR ALL THE COLOURS AND PATTERNS. But these girls do black and white with aplomb, and I can only imagine how easy picking outfits from their wardrobes must be. I wish I could clone myself or have an alter ego who dresses so sleekly and has the easiest time coordinating outfits. I’d love to know what’s like to be the girl who’s not forever wondering where her candy pink belt is because it would go perfectly with the lilac boots and burgundy trousers.
So this style may not be something I’ll ever embrace myself, but it doesn’t mean I can’t take elements and incorporate it into my style every now and then.
Pin for later!
I hope you love this list of fabulous fashionistas as much as me – I’ve never even touched on this style of dressing before in my featured bloggers lists so I thought it was high time I showed the sleek girls some love…!

LOVING THIS POST? YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE…
1. Katarina – Katiquette
I’ve been following Katarina (Kat) for ages and I’ve always admired her ability to wear denim in so many different and stylish ways. Never without sneaks, her style is super casual but still deceptively smart.
Follow Katarina on Instagram: @katiquetteblog
2. Caroline – Unfancy
It’s not just Caroline’s style that’s minimalist, but her wardrobe is as well: She started her blog to document the 37 items she cut her wardrobe back to in order to curb her shopping habit (wise lady). Whilst she has a few more pieces than that now, she still mixes and matches with lots of lovely tan accessories, crisp whites and denim.

3. Blair – Blair Badge
Blair was literally one of the very first bloggers I followed way back when I started my blog. I was always in awe of her clean aesthetic, ability to wear black so beautifully (not easy when you’re a blonde) and touches of masculine chic with chunky boots and leather.

4. Amy – Fashion Jackson
One of the very well-known minimalist style bloggers, Amy’s outfits nearly always feature tailoring, tailoring and more tailoring – with distressed denim. Her accessories are simple and add just the right amount of interest to her clean lines. Plus check out that white jumpsuit: it’s TDF.

5. Megan – Megan Adelaide
Someone I’ve discovered only recently is LA-based Megan. With almost no accessorisation, she really doesn’t need anything extra when she rocks a simple palette of black, white, grey and camel. Rather than denim she tends to favour more casual, loose tailored pieces which look effortlessly chic.

6. Ivana – Aesthetic Lines
Introducing a little (subtle) colour: Ivana’s style is slightly more eclectic but minimalist all the same. With interesting textures such as velvet, fluffy knits and pleats, she makes on-trend pieces look wonderfully classic and timeless.

7. Kathryn – Kat Got the Cream
Minimalist style isn’t just for 20 and 30-somethings: Kathryn (another Kat) is in her 40s and absolutely rocks minimalist style. With a few more injections of colour than some of the other bloggers, she suits the slouchy tailoring, oversized coats and a signature white sneakers she wears.

8. Kaitlyn – Modern Legacy
Looking more like a Dutch or Scandinavian blogger than an Australian, Kaitlyn is probably the ultimate minimalist fashion blogger. Everything is black and white with just the odd “splash” of camel or grey. Another fan of slouchy tailoring, she does a flared trouser beautifully – always with white sneakers or loafers (do you spot a theme here…?)

9. Carola – Vienna Wedekind
As well as her stunning blog photography, Carola offers up a style heavy in black and white in interesting textures with subtle details such as bamboo bag handles or pearl shoulder detailing. She’s the Queen of Styling a White Shirt and offers up just enough accessorisation to keep her outfits from looking too simple.
