The Ultimate Guide To Dressing Like A Maximalist - 7 Looks To Try!

Last year, the Kardashian clan took over with their no colour, no print, minimalist style. It would be hard to find a picture of Kim K where she isn’t dressed head to two in one single colour. Like we said, that is so last year.

We’re currently eyeing Rihanna, as she confidently struts down the street wearing a barely there ‘naked dress’. It is fun being OTT sometimes, it breaks the rut of toned down styles. Leather bomber jackets, gold hoop earrings and ‘too big for your face’ sunglasses are some of the ways you can go sensibly extra.

A word of caution, this is a fashion risk which if executed poorly can lead to outfit disasters. But don't fret, because we have a list of fashion experiments you can undertake to go that ‘extra’ mile!

Bomber Jackets With Dresses

Bomber Jackets worn with your usual basic jeans and tees can help you achieve the ‘oversized’ look. Mix things up and pair them with your shift dresses - it’ll instantly add that street chic appeal!

Clashing Prints

The minimalist in us goes for printed skirts with basic tops or printed tops with solid skirts. We tend to balance out our look. But for a slightly OTT twist, mix clashing printed separates or co-ords. Don’t be afraid to pair this pretty floral skirt with some polka dots!
