Why We Love It
This kinder, gentler variation on minimalism is an easy way to dress; its quiet palette and airy, unencumbering pieces offer risk-free simplicity in a soft and pretty mood. Better still, the clothes boast the comfort level of pajamas. Step into any one of these choices and it’s all about you. How refreshing a change is that?
How to Wear It
There’s no need to overaccessorize. Shun pattern for monochrome shapes that graze and offer a sense of movement. A smoky eye is welcome. A colored lip is not.
