Minimalism is back in all its pared down, stripped back glory! For fall, everyone from Stella McCartney (near left) to Yves Saint Laurent (far left) is showing sleeker, simpler and chicer! For maximum effect with minimum effort, opt for slim, cropped black pants paired with a crisp, bright white shirt. Add standout accessories for a combo that is anything but boring.
