A minimalistic summer outfit

Paterns, tulle, lace and fancy cuts – I am usually more a maximalist when it comes to fashion. However, sometimes less really is more. And a minimalistic summer outfit can look very elegant. Especially when travelling and I can only take a few clothes with me, I like to choose pieces that can be teamed with many different garments.

Green meets Black: A minimalistic Summer Outfit

Summer Outfit: RetroCat wearing capri trousers and a subtle top during vacation

One of my all time favourite fashion basics are my green trousers as well as a subtle black top with a high neckline. Both pieces can be worn in many different ways. The top also goes perfectly well with a white pencil skirt and the trousers look very seductive when worn with a sheer black crop top.

This time, however, I decided to wear both pieces together. I added a vintage basket bag as well as vintage sandals from the 50s – that’s it. A wonderful and relaxed outfit for summer vacation, an informal dinner or just a walk through the city or park. You can even wear it in the office when the dresscode isn’t too formal!

Beside my outfit, my hairstyle is minimalistic, too. A classy ponytail doesn’t take longer than a few minutes. To add that certain something to the look, I went for a hairpiece (via Amazon*).
