What to include in a minimalist wardrobe?

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase ‘minimalist wardrobe’? A wardrobe with nothing in it and nothing to wear? Don’t worry, it is actually a great way to approach fashion and also keep your life free from unnecessary clutter. So, what should a man have in his minimalist wardrobe?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you never had to worry about what to wear? Imagine having a few choice garments that could be mixed and matched to create a range of outfits for almost any occasion? That is what is meant by a minimalist wardrobe. There are no surplus items and each garment should be considered on how it fits into the wider picture and not on its individual qualities.

Essential things to include are a smart overcoat and a puffer jacket. These will see through both formal occasions and casual winter wear. A transitional jacket is also a good idea for spring and summer and a denim jacket would fit the bill nicely.
