If there’s one thing we love about the arrival of fall weather, it’s the fact that our wardrobes shift as well. Even if you consider yourself a dyed-in-the-wool maximalist, there’s just something about switching your closet over to neutrals and crafting minimal outfits. We can’t stop thinking about all the cozy cream sweaters and earthy brown jackets we’re about to wear all season long. That being said, minimal dressing doesn’t equal boring. To illustrate our point, we rounded up our favorite minimal looks that are not only easy to try for yourself but also have as much style as any other outfit. Check them out below; then shop each look.

The off-the-shoulder trend doesn’t have to remain in the spring and summer seasons. Wear a sweater version of the top with a pair of raw-hem jeans for a simple look you can wear everywhere.
