If you happen to keep up with the blog (thank you you’re the best) then you might remember the post a few weeks ago where I shared what I’ve learned so far about what it means to be a minimalist. Minimalism can pretty much be incorporated into any part of your life. You can declutter all things tangible and intangible from junk to friends to clothes. Right?
Even celebs can (sorta) be minimalists, at least their personal style can be described as minimal- those who choose to opt for a less is more kind of attitude when it comes to clothes. Like for example Rihanna- I effing love her and believe she can do no wrong- but she would not be considered a minimalist. Someone who can be and is currently killing it as a minimalist is Emma Watson. From her red carpet to her street style- she always looks modern and elegant, never flashy or over accessorized. She typically looks understated, effortless and beautiful.
Check out Emma’s style below. Enjoy!
She opened up in 2015 about her struggles with self identity:
“I’ve spent more than half of my life pretending to be someone else. While my contemporaries were dying their hair and figuring out who they were, I was figuring out who Hermione was and how best to portray her.”
And like, even though I don’t know what it’s like to be a famous movie star and be lost in role and need to discover who I really am– I still get it. I was a young girl too once and just because the circumstances are (a lot) different, doesn’t mean the feelings are.
Another reason to love her:
“I love to work with and support female designers. I think Gabriela Hearst is absolutely amazing, very sustainable, really smart. As I’m putting together my press looks for Beauty and the Beast, I really have in mind, ‘How can I support up-and-coming female businesses?’”
She pretty much sums up the benefits of having a minimalist style:
“When I was younger I remember being told ‘no pain no gain’, but recently my willingness to wear something that makes me freezing cold or that I can’t walk in has changed. I want to feel fabulous and comfortable and sexy and strong and beautiful. And if it’s making you uncomfortable, don’t do it. It’s so sad if you need to go home just because you need to sit down! Moving forward, I’m prioritizing just feeling awesome.”
Some other hints that Emma is a true minimalist:
Favorite accessory: “My go-to daily little jewels. Every day I wear a tiny, drop diamond necklace on a sweet gold chain, a very special Jennifer Meyer gold bar necklace that was a birthday present, and my tiny rings from Hirotaka, Boucheron, and one vintage one from my mother.”
For her Beauty and the Beast Press tour she wore only eco-conscious labels and we fell even more in love:
Bonjour Paris! Coat is from @stellamccartney, the world’s first luxury brand that is committed to producing products that do not use leather, skins, feathers or fur. Instead, Stella has spent years developing ways of using materials such as regenerated cashmere, recycled fabrics, organic cotton and forest-friendly fabrics. Jumper is from @filippa_k, a Swedish brand committed to four Rs: reducing, repairing, reusing and recycling. Tee by @boodywear, a brand that produces basics made with certified organic bamboo, produced using computerised 3D knitting, so no fabric is wasted. Its factories are zero-waste and have a closed loop system to stop any water being wasted. Bespoke beret by @maisonmichel made with organic cotton. Shoes are @goodguysdontwearleather. The brand doesn’t use any animal products in its collections. Fashion info verified by @ecoage #ecoloves
And lastly, this is Emma just looking absolutely stunning and proving that less is definitely more.
Until Next Time!
