Vegan Minimalist Style for Spring 2015
Minimalism is one of the biggest trends this Spring. From negative space nails to monochrome ensembles, it’s showing up in a variety of ways. The good news is that minimalism can be customized to suit your personal style. Another nice thing about minimalism is that it’s, well, minimal—there’s a certain blank canvas aspect about the trend that allows the wearer’s personality to shine through. The following vegan minimalist style picks are no different.
While layers of tulle may seem a far cry from minimalist, there’s something airy and free about this skirt. Pair it with a fitted black tee and simple sandals for an understated (but not unnoticeable!) feminine look.
This oversized shirt has just the right dash of preppy-casual and no-nonsense comfort—a perfect complement to your dark skinny jeans. The shirt is made with a blend of cotton, linen, and ramie, lending it a natural, soft texture. Wear to work or while you drink your Saturday latte.
With notes of orange, lime, cypress, orange flower, and mountain sage, this light, nearly unisex perfume evokes the ancient aromas of the Peloponnesos of southern Greece, a fragrance that’s simple yet laced with a little mystery. There’s nothing like a fresh, crisp perfume the clear your mind—especially when it’s made with all-natural plant ingredients.
Combining a soft tan with blush pink, this 12” tote is made with vegetable-dyed vegan boa leather and is perfect for work and evening. Its clean lines and functionality make it a smart addition to your spring wardrobe.
We all need a chic pair of black pants, no? These straight-leg trousers are a little more relaxed than the standard skinny jean cut and provide a nice foundation for a cute spring outfit. Pair with a flowy top or loose sweater and ballet flats for a classy (and comfortable) ensemble.
It’s always nice to have a cute pair of shoes to throw on as we dash out the door. Even better if those shoes go with just about anything. With their thin vegan leather straps, these delicate sandals are the epitome of spring’s practical and stylish minimalism.
Unpredictable spring weather calls for a light sweater or two. Yes to layering! Its generous boat neck and short silhouette keep this sweater from looking too chunky (i.e. wintery!).
Josie Maran’s Argan Love Your Lips lipsticks are sheathed in a layer of moisturizing gloss/balm. The lipstick has a dewy finish, and the color is quite buildable, meaning that you can go from sheer to full-coverage with just a few swipes. This rosy nude may just be that missing piece of your no-makeup makeup palette.
Minimalism does not mean no jewelry—phew! A few stackable rings or a simple necklace can add just the right charm. A piece with a little pop of color—like this necklace—will keep your look fun and vibrant.
