6 Winter Outfits That Are the Epitome of "Less Is More"

Sometimes, you wake up and shun everything in your closet that's bright, printed, or otherwise statement-making. This is when you reach for the palette cleansers: the sleek camel coats, the cozy white sweaters, and the reliable black boots. When you're in a minimalist mood, nothing adorned, embroidered, or sequinned will do. It's all about the simplest pieces in the chicest silhouettes.

If you fancy yourself a minimalist, you're about to want every single one of the below outfits. I took cues from stylish Instagram girls and re-created their pitch-perfect, less-is-more outfits. There's a matching monochromatic set that's anything but boring, a perfect denim outfit, and plenty of basic yet polished sweater options. Scroll down to shop our favorite minimalist outfits for winter. Who knows? Maybe you'll never need to go back to color and prints when you get your hands on these essentials.
