How To Master Minimalism (The Proenza Way)
Minimalism is making a surprisingly big
statement this season. We're seeing a decidedly pared-down approach to dressing for spring — from designers like Proenza Schouler
to retailers like Zara and Aritzia. Sure, there are still plenty of Crayola-colored clothes to wear and love, but muted palettes, especially classic black-and-white, are having a major moment. This two-tone outfit from Proenza's resort '14 collection is the embodiment of the trend. Its asymmetric, accordion-pleated midi-skirt catches the eye with a striking colorblock. Notice the contrast is continued throughout the look with a monochrome jacket, top, and sandals. For a hint of color, accessorize with turquoise studs and a neutral envelope clutch. But, remember: The beauty of this style lies in its simplicity.
