What is men's minimal dressing style?
Minimal dressing style is simply wearing timeless essentials and not falling for latest fashion trends and fads or wearing a ton of seasonal pieces.
I am not saying you should not pick seasonal pieces but be mindful of how the new seasonal piece you buy will fit with your style and other pieces in your wardrobe.
The whole concept of minimal dressing style is to wear timeless essentials that mix and match with each other easily.
If you buy the right clothes and build a perfect capsule wardrobe then you just wouldn't have to stare at your wardrobe in the morning to decide what to wear.
You can pick anything from your wardrobe and you will still look well put together.
