5 Sustainable Minimalist Looks for Spring

Minimalism is all about the thought process. Whether in life or in fashion minimalism encourages you to slow down and simplify. It pairs so well with a sustainable mindset because it’s all about simplifying and considering your actions. Considering the well being of the people who made your clothes. Considering why you are plagued with wardrobe decision fatigue.
The minimalist look is what you think about on Instagram and Pinterest. A neutral color palette full of functional clothing that fits well and effortlessly at the same time. It’s the clothing style you might image people in an IKEA catalog would wear. The style is as simple to wear as it sounds and can be upgraded and downgraded super easily based on your makeup, hairstyle, and accessories.
This collection of outfits has mainly black and neutral color palette and tries to make a minimalist look for many an occasion. The brands are many I’ve used before and the fabrics are breathable and ethical.
Surprise! This first actually features something not released yet. The Good Krama dress is a part of their upcoming summer collection. It’s versatile and great for many different forums. Also, you know the dress is made with all the sustainable and ethical practices that you expect from Good Krama.
