I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: My style is simple, but I like to think that doesn’t equate to boring. I still love statement pieces and a wide range of brands, and I even surprise myself from time to time with an out-there outfit idea, but when it comes to my day-to-day look, I like to keep it pretty minimal and classic. It’s funny, though, as it relates to today’s story, because those two adjectives aren’t exactly what come to mind when you think of street style, which, with each new season becomes more and more exaggerated, out-there, and over the top. However, I’ve realized that if you look closely enough, there are still a handful of showgoers who skip the many, many statement pieces and deliver simply good outfits composed mostly of basics. Don’t believe me? Just keep scrolling to see (and shop) nine street style outfits that even those with minimal style won’t be able to help but love.
Look 1: Monochrome Minimalism
Simply tuck a sweater into high-waisted jeans and pair with boots in the same color family. The tonal effect makes a big impact.
Look 2: No Pants Needed
Style an oversize blazer with tights and your go-to ankle boots.
Look 3: Feathered Up
Wear a pair of fun statement pants with a classic long coat so just the bottom peers out.
Look 4: Black and White
Layer a white coat (or spring-ready vest) over any all-black outfit for an easy-yet-impactful look.
Look 5: The Classic Combo
It doesn't get more timeless than a blazer, skinny jeans, and pumps—especially if they're Manolos.
Look 6: Casual, Comfortable, Cool
Breathe new life into a tracksuit by pairing it with ankle boots and a camel coat.
Shop the matching Pima Cotton-Blend Jersey Track Pants ($175).
Look 7: Mighty Midi
Szymon Brzóska/The Style Stalker
Style your favorite midi skirt with a white blouse and statement accessories such as layered necklaces, a bold belt, and/or animal-print ankle boots.
Look 8: Pop of Color
While you may have to ditch the coat part now that spring is here, the idea behind this look still stands: white T-shirt, white jeans, white flats, and a pop of color in the form of a bag.
Look 9: Suit Meets Sandals
Give your favorite suit set a spring-ready feel by styling it with strappy sandals.
