The 2018 Way to Do Minimalist Dressing

Bold and minimalist may not be two words you'd usually place side by side, but with all the high-voltage pigment on the runways and streets this year, even the sleekest dressers can embrace a little color for spring.

While minimalists may inherently gravitate toward soft camels, creams, and neutrals, armed with the right inspiration, ultra-saturated reds, pinks, and blues can become part of a minimalist wardrobe too. The key is picking solid-color items in classic cuts, like a sleek coat or polished trousers. They're eye-catching, but there's nothing busy about them. 

While we're a fan of mixing and matching solid colors in unexpected ways, for those intimidated by bold hues, there are subtler ways to break into the trend. Try a statement bag or style a jewel-toned sweater with an otherwise all-black ensemble. Below, you'll find seven minimalist (but bright) looks we love, along with shopping to help you kick-start your new highly saturated wardrobe.
