Minimalism is all about simplicity and spareness. Quality over quantity. The less, the better. In that spirit, we'll keep this intro short. But first let us say that Dunwoody's shopping scene is anything but minimal, especially with the famed Perimeter Mall within reach. However, with some shopping prowess and self-control, we managed to find the perfect 12 pieces* to complete any modern woman's minimalist wardrobe.
1. The Denim Jacket
2. The Striped Shirt
Simple stripes are timeless, especially in the always-versatile navy. Wear this striped shirt from Banana Republic with a cardigan in the office or under a denim jacket for a girls' night at Vino Venue.
3. The Basic Tank
Tuck it in under a sweater or jacket, or wear it untucked with jeans and sandals for an effortless summer look. This soft tank is from Madewell in Perimeter Mall.
4. The Mules
5. The LBD
6. The Sneakers
7. The Cardigan
For wearing over the LBD, or with the striped shirt, jeans and mules, or with a tank top and sandals, or really with anything. Find this one at J. Crew in Perimeter Mall.
8. The Heels
Tall enough to work with your LBD, short enough to not break your ankle when boarding the MARTA on your way to ATL. They'd also go well with a pair of jeans, basic tank and jean jacket. Grab these in black at Dilliard's.
9. / 10. The Blue + Black Jeans
Gap's got a good thing going with their denim. Grab a classic blue pair in your favorite style and wear them rolled down in the winter, cuffed in the summer. You'll need the black jeans to wear with your denim jacket and black heels.
11. The Sandals
Slide into these babies for a nice, low-key pop of color. They'll go with pretty much anything in your new minimalist wardrobe.
12. The Shorts
Seeing as how hot it can get in Georgia, shorts are a must. Wear with your sandals, tank and cardigan for a girl-next-door look. These are from Express.
Would you look at that! With just 12 items, you have everything you need to make your name as a 21st century minimalist. Or at least you will once you shop at Dunwoody's Perimeter Mall, the second-largest mall in the Southeast.
*We've boldly claimed these are the only 12 pieces you need, but that's assuming you already have essentials like maybe underwear. We understand you'll need to supplement some pieces in the rotation. Don't worry, we won't rat you out to the minimalist fashion police.
