minimalist style doesnt have to be black and white, i have various colours across the colour spectrum, you just need a cohesive palette. true minimalism in fashion is about having beautiful elements on a garment without excessive complications

Why is she talking in slow motion?
KK Brown (2 months ago)
I feel like people in the comments are taking her the wrong way, she's EDUCATING on what minimalist style is and how to make it NOT be boring. On another note, if we can all take a shot every time she says style everyone will be in a better mood.

Is she reading?

What pants are you wearing? You talk about your shirt but not the pants. I want the pants!!!! Love them.
Rina Ordonez (3 months ago)
I like this style. This is why I like BCBG Max Azria. But I like to mix it up. I don’t like to be labeled.ai wear what Ilike.

I think fans of the minimalist look are already "minimalist" in other areas of their life. They love simplistic and modern and it shows in other areas of their life (furniture, home decor, hairstyle)I feel like you have to already have a minimalist personality to really look comfy and authentic in this style. I love classic pieces that can take me through every single season...so this trend works wonders for me.

Would Eileen Fisher be considered as Minimalist?
Alicia Mayevsky (3 months ago)
you can speed up the time if your annoyed with how slow she is speaking. She’s speaking slowly for a good reason. She is talking clear and slowly to be understood properly. Honestly think she did a great job presenting this information. Thankyou Lauren x I appreciate the content you are putting out and the way you are presenting it. Very well thought out!

I like your candor and agree with your disclaimer. I agree people should think about weather a minimalist wardrobe is for them. I’ve had a minimalist wardrobe for close to two years. It took sometime to adjust to this style. However, overtime I added my own style and flare.

Are any other minimalostss cringing at how overcrowded her room is? Were all those decorations and space fillers really necessary?

Good choices!
Laura Honey (9 months ago)
I love the minimalist look! I hope it's here to stay because it is so good for the environment. I myself like it because I can focus on makeup and jewellery! But that is soo true that it looks super super plain if you do it wrong. I will take this on board :) Cheers, Laura
K LOVE (9 months ago)
I love an all grey and taupe minimalist look but black and white pieces together is my least favorite look. I can't think if anything less imaginative. At least with a monochromatic look you can play with shades and textures and make it interesting and flattering.

If she talks any slower I’ll die before the video ends
Faye Watkins (10 months ago)
Great vid. But yur speech is slow and, just slow. Awkward is that the word ? Something.

I gotta say if you were my stylist and I told you I wanted this style and you gave me this sarcastic attitude I'd walk out.
It is what It is (1 year ago)
She hates minimalism lol 😂😂😂😂 I personally have a minimalist look and love it! It makes it easy to create outfits and keeps my closet clutter free. She acts like it’s boring. To me it lets me as a person shine through. I feel like people look at me. Not my clothes.

Andrea Guidera (1 year ago)
Really good video! Helped me to start trying to find my own version of minimalism vs the blogger take on it; which I am getting a bit bored of looking at and is feeling more like a 'trend'.

Acronym?
Marita Jenine (1 year ago)
It would help to look at the camera and not speak soooo slowly. What are you reading? Haha
Alicia Mayevsky (3 months ago)
Marita Jenine you can speed up the time if your annoyed with how slow she is speaking. She’s speaking slowly for a good reason. She is talking clear and slowly to be understood properly. Honestly think she did a great job presenting this information.Very well thought out! She isn’t reading anything btw, if you’ve ever used a professional camera before you would know that it’s hard to figure out where to look sometimes. I’m sure you couldn’t do a better job if you tried.
Karianne Hylkema (1 year ago)
It's like she is reading from an autocue and making these kind of videos are a boring task to her. Check out Karen Britchick to see someone who embodies passion for fashion. Lauren's videos are informative enough but it's not very fun to watch or listen to. Also, no try ons :(
Shawna (1 year ago)
If we're being honest, and you kind of said this but you were more tactful than I will be, this look really only looks good if you are a model or close to being one. To look good in this look you need to be either thin or good looking and even better if you are both. This is what you mean when you say people aspiring to the style think it's going to make them look like the celebrity they see wearing it.
Sheila Ramey (1 year ago)
Shawna McComber Agree, although I practice this and am overweight, my eyes do love the clean lines. I also add pops of color with jewelry, and make sure the clothes are very well fitted.

I think Minimalism can incorporate monochromatic colors not just white and black. It could be different tones of red in one look or even color blocking with simple or architectural shapes.
Adriana Bastos (1 year ago)
Hey Lauren🙋 I REALLY enjoy the way you present your knowledge...the clear way you speak as well. I've been amazed at your videos' content. Cheers from Brazil ✨ and Thanxx \o/!

I love the 90s minimalist style. People seem to be confusing this fashion style w other things 🙄
Sandra Lewis (1 year ago)
What? The minimalist look has nothing to do with the colors a person chooses to wear. It's about limiting the number of items in your entire wardrobe and making sure they all work together. My minimalist look is based on black, teal, plum, and silver, with some white and silvery gray. It includes layering, edgy styling, statement jewelry pieces, and scarves. The minimalism comes down to my lack of a shopping habit and the styling is due to my interest in recycling and repurposing found items in a creative way.
NonStopParis (1 year ago)
Haha, it's pretty obvious you're not really into this style :)

Her comments totally ruined the video
oregon ally (1 year ago)
Thank you Lauren! I love minimalism and I tried it but I realize I look better with a little more detail more preppy/classic and more jewelry. I feel like people who are naturally gorgeous and have more of a model body type will do best with this style. On average people it ends up looking very average! 😴 I have a strong jawline and felt like I looked mannish in some of these pieces and I need more detail to up my femininity. Thank you so much for your honest assessment of this style, let's not jump on every trend!
Nels corner (1 year ago)
Was really cool and interesting to watch but it would be so much more fun to look if you would blend in some photos wearing this combos :)
K Dot (1 year ago)
I think some off you are confused. This title says "STYLE series" not lifestyle. Totally different. It is an actual style that has existed prior to the minimalistic lifestyle wave.
Misia M (1 year ago)
I thought it was a way of life not a "style"

Lauren. I am def. a min dresser (volume and style). But I have a hard time with casual clothes. I like black white grey khaki navy and red. Plz do a video on min casual. Thanks!!

Michelle DeRoo (2 years ago)
Hi! New subscriber here! Im really loving the vibe of this chanel! But I'd like to make a little bit of constructive criticism, you should stop filming with two cameras, i can see that when the camara changes your eyes look at th first camera and it seems little bit off, asides from that this video is flawless!
Ann N (2 years ago)
Can you do a video how to cover big arms lol! Thanks
frida (2 years ago)
You should've pointed out that this is a *stereotypical* minimalist style. Not all minimalists dress in black, white and grey. Most importantly: wearing minimalistic clothes does not make you a minimalist. Minimalism is a lifestyle. Everyone can wear simple clothing in basic colors, but that doesn't make them minimalists.
whitwhit87 (1 year ago)
frida is it that serious that people actually think this is a thing? lmmfao...im pretty sure there are people that have been minimalist before it became a trend...
frida (2 years ago)
+lestrange Good point :)
lestrange (2 years ago)
Her video series is just about fashion style types, not lifestyles. The same name can be used for both but it's two different things. Minimalist fashion is a legitimate style name. She's not saying anything about the minimalist lifestyle at all. It's the same with all the fashion styles- you can have a bohemian fashion style while still having a totally corporate, mainstream, non-bohemian lifestyle. You can wear sporty clothes all the time, and never do any sports.
Shana Hernandez (2 years ago)
Also, plenty of people claim to be when they aren't they just use it and try to sell stuff. Kind of like this video. It's more of having a small set of things that work all the time, not so much simple colors. Kind of bothers me when people use it as a trend when trendy things kind of go against the idea of minimalism.
Susie H. (2 years ago)
yes! that's what I was going to say too :)

Those black flats are awesome! <3 I did order a pair like that, but they were much too wide, and then I kind of gave up... But this makes me want to search further!

Amazing fashion related tattoos! :)
Stu cumins (2 years ago)
Interestingly minimalism and neutrals has been ubiquitous over recent years, yet at the spring/summer 2016 fashion week shows, maximalism and bolder colours dominated the runways. A change in the guard it seems. Yet another good video Lauren. Thanks and regards, Deb.
Stu cumins (2 years ago)
Whoops....that should read A/W 2017.
Sina Steck (2 years ago)
Hey Lauren, I love your videos and I really like the minimialist style.Thanks to you I discovered these amazing brands you mentioned like Iro and Vince. Where is that white top you showed at the beginning with the amazing side part? I really love it! Kind regards from a big fan from Germany!
MsOnitemi (2 years ago)
A great place to find nice affordable pieces (any fashion style, really) is Nordstrom Rack. It is amazing what you can find in the clearance ranks. Fashion Question - What are the best stores or websites to find classic shoes (pumps, wedges, nice flats, etc) for women with large sizes? I wear a size 12M. I dont know anywhere else but Nordstrom to buy shoes. Are there hidden gems out there somewhere?
Sofie De Schoenmaeker (2 years ago)
Hi Lauren , I really like your new series !! What do you think about COS as a store for the minimalist ? kind regards, Sofie
Sarah Smith (2 years ago)
Are there flat shoes I can wear with pencil skirts without looking sloppy? They just seem to look weird to me with my Chelsea boots or ballet flats. I'm a teacher and am on my feet all day so I only do heels a few times per month. Should I just stick to another silhouette that is more flat friendly?
V CR (1 year ago)
April D. I wear them w pointy toe flats. Looks better than w round toe shoes.

That grey jacket is super cute, I'm obsessed!! Lol
Paula Renee (2 years ago)
Great video! I subscribe to this look - I'm Timeless and Minimal. But to really work these looks, I think you have to spend a little more money. And it's worth it because you'll have the items forever. Personally, I'm moving more toward quality over quantity.
yggirl511 (2 years ago)
Been watching your style type videos. It seems I can identify with a few of them...

hi, Lauren. I'm a recent subscriber and I'm loving your tips and guidance. I know it's not strictly fashion, but I'd love to hear your professional opinion in tattoos, particularly ones that show when dresses for the office. thanks!

I love this look for the lines, silhouettes and texture. But i don't think it's very difficult to make it flattering for my curve plussize body. I'm looking forward to your other videos!
