Minimalism has been a growing trend for the last year. This is not the season for rhinestone heels, tutus, and flower embellished cardigans. (Although we're totally still wearing that because that's who we are.) It can be a tough one to pull off if you don't have the budget for luxury fabrics and fine tailoring. Or if you are a foofy girly girl as described.
Minimalism doesn't mean you have to buy a jersey tube dress from American Apparel. (Never do that.) Nor does it mean you can only wear neutral colors. Who wants to celebrate spring in black and beige? Modern minimalism is a high-impact look with few frills, a classic dress in your shape's ideal silhouette. The point is that people will say, "Wow, you look amazing!" not "Where did you get that amazing dress?" Try everything on and put on your best deerstalker cap to look for small details. Less is more. And in a couple years when more is more, you can top this season's dress with that flower embellished cardigan.
