Learn from Jennifer Aniston, Garance Dore and Kiran Rao – ladies who do it right

Minimalism has always been debatable; how much is too muchand how little is too little? Appreciated by some and misunderstood by others, it has today become a definitive style of dressing. For many, denim, a basic white shirt and a black jacket are the insignia of minimal fashion. For others, it might be a single-toned ensemble. We love how a few women have adopted a minimal aesthetic and made it their own. We’ve made notes so you can learn from them. Shall we?

Jennifer Aniston

With a high dose of neutral tones such as grey, mocha and tan, Jennifer Aniston displays minimalistic perfection on the red carpet. Her fashion sense is uncomplicated; a classic column dress or a shift paired with a black jacket. Her hairdo does the rest, those soft layers that fall around her face add character to her simple look.


Garance Dore

The star of street style fashion, she aces minimalism with layering. A pair of sexy culottes, a basic white shirt under a stunning white jumper and she is set to photograph and be photographed! Black, white and grey seem to be her preferred hues. She infuses oomph in her looks with high heels and a clean lob haircut.


Tilda Swinton

Adored for her androgynous red carpet preferences, her pick of silhouettes is often unique. Sharp Haider Ackermann cigarette pants with sleek jackets are her signature. A clean pompadour hairdo and minimal make-up complete her understated elegant style.

Emmanuelle Alt

How much can you experiment with a sleek pair of jeans? Take cues from French Vogue’s editrix who manifests Parisian chic with her parkas and over coats worn with basic denims. Her style is easy and relaxed, centred around black jumpers or a denim shirt with a sexy leather jacket.


Kiran Rao

Curly hairdo and a basic pair of glasses begin to sum up Kiran Rao’s style but it definitely goes beyond that. This screenwriter, producer and director has brought geek chic in vogue. Always dressed easy, she exudes quirk with an undertone of elegance through light breezy saris, culottes with shirts or a midi dress with a shrug.
