Maximalism is having a big moment. Oversize silhouettes paraded down fashion week runways in splashy prints and glaring colors, and while we love the leopard print–and-pink combo we're seeing everywhere right now, we also appreciate a more laid-back look. One can always lust after on-trend over-the-top fashion, but a streamlined and pared-back aesthetic will never goes out of style.

Adding a level of elegance and simplicity to their look by wearing tailored jumpsuits, crisp white button-downs, or linen dresses in classic silhouettes, these fashion girls never fail to deliver endless inspiration in their editorial musings and on their Instagram feeds.
