Why do I need to invest in a minimal wardrobe? 

I hear you. Trust me — the older you grow, the more you'll realise that classic white tee you've owned for 15 years is your most trustworthy friend all along. 

Here are 5 reasons why we are shifting to a minimal wardrobe, and you should too!  

1. Fashion week ready. All day. Every day.

There's a reason why minimal fashioned bloggers gets all the love on Instagram. There's a reason why all the top designers are always seen in a black t-shirt. It's so effortless.

2. A minimal wardrobe will save you loads of time in the morning! 

Ask yourself, how many times you got changed in the morning and you're like: "Mmm. Actually it might go better with that top"... and 4 changes later, you've done nothing else except get changed over and over again. And then you're rushing to put on your make-up, you ran out of time to eat your healthy breakfast and not to mention the precious 'morning glory sex' you could have enjoyed if you didn't get changed like 5 times. 

Let's be honest. We've all been there.

3. There's more room to rock those bold accessories. 

But is monotone boring? Nope. Actually you'll find the opposite. With a minimal wardrobe, you'll have so much more room to be playful with accessories and bags. Doesn't this look powerful? It's all about balance

4. You can be that Superwoman who saves the world.

Not exaggerating. The overall driving force behind building a minimal wardrobe is slow fashion and conscious buying. Needs versus wants, Quality versus quantity. Fast fashion giants like Target, H&M, Forever21, Zara, and others won't like this because they want you to change your closet every season to make more money.  But it's an incredibly wasteful and harmful fashion philosophy.

Data shows that from the 193,000 tons of textiles tossed every year, only half is recycled!! That is ridiculous. Yes it is. So you'll be saving the world by buying less.

So go through your closet, get rid of anything you haven't worn in the past 2 years, and sell it 2nd hand or donate to thrift/charity shops.
