Style Lessons: 3 Things Genevieve Taught Us About Minimalist Style

Minimalist style is a paradigm of ‘less is more’ dressing. It simply means having a simple silhouette to your clothing and keeping accessories to a minimum.

Genevieve Nnaji is not only the Queen of Nollywood, she is also the Queen of edgy, minimalist dressing.  We have definitely learnt some things from her personal minimalist style.

Over time, she has taught us to:

1. Go dainty

Dainty jewelry gives you an elegant and sophisticated look.  Understated pieces of jewelry keep your overall look simple. Pieces such as solitaire diamond earrings or studs, a thin gold necklace with a tiny pendant, geometric bracelet and delicate rings are most suited. By all means stay away from chunky cocktail rings.

2. Be compelling

Choose a piece as the focus of your dressing. Wear a simple pair of trousers with poplin top, or a simple dress with an interesting jacket. You could go for an edgy white and black or monochrome outfit. Always remember to pair statement shoes with streamlined outfits

3. Use colourful hues

You define what is minimal to you. In contrast to the traditional minimalist that sticks to white, gray, navy and black, Genevieve Nnaji spices up her style with a little colour now and again. She doesn’t limit herself to monochromatic ensembles. Well placed contrast with simple pieces and few accessories in particular will do the trick.
