#FashionTips: Are you a minimalist or a maximalist?

Fashion Tips - By Lolita Bunde | February 23rd 2021 at 11:30:00 GMT +0300

When it comes to style and fashion, there are two kinds of people: the minimalists and the maximalists.

Depending on where you grew up or who introduced you to fashion, you are likely to adopt and love pieces that best express your style.

If you probably love monochromes and neutral colours, you are likely a minimalist but if you live for statement pieces and colour blocking you are a definitely a maximalist.

Here are more ways you can tell the difference between minimalists and maximalists:

  • Closet arrangement

This is probably the easiest way to tell the difference between a maximalist and a minimalist.

Minimalists tend to be neat and organized, their clothes probably fit into a closet that locks while a maximalist’s closet is chaotic with different clothes bulging out in no particular order.

  • The wardrobe pieces

With a minimalist, the capsule wardrobe actually works as they only have the very few items they need with a lot of neutral colours and subtle pieces.

While a maximalist’s wardrobe is endless and will have all sorts of fashion pieces and colours depending on what they fancy.

  • Outfit choices

Of course by now you can guess how a minimalist is likely to dress, probably a simple T-shirt and mom jeans would do while a maximalist would go all out.

Maximalists love attention and colour is everything, you are likely to notice them wherever they are.

  • Shopping options

Most minimalists have no problem duplicating the same white T-shirt in their wardrobe, they are likely to put on the same T-shirt in different shades all week and just be cool.

While for a maximalists one piece is never bought twice nor are they likely to repeat an outfit twice, every day is an opportunity to try new things.

  • Shopping tendencies

Last but not least - shopping tendencies. Minimalists are reserved and will likely shop when they need to and with a budget. A maximalist will paint the town red, every day is a shopping day. They are spendthrifts and will likely buy things they won’t ever use or wear.

Bonus tip: Some people are neither minimalists nor maximalists, they are a little bit of both. If you fall in this category, you are lucky, you can fit in any group comfortably and fashionably.
