Constant travellers know that the accumulation of stuff makes things quite complicated. When you are constantly uprooting your life, you begin to learn the value of simplifying, stripping back, having greater appreciation for a smaller number of possessions.
Scrap that, you don’t need to be a constant mover to appreciate the simple bliss of living as a minimalist. It’s a human thing: once you begin to cut back, you realize how good it feels. You start to think of other places in your life that could do with some paring back.
I wouldn’t normally talk about clothes and style, but I’m just in the mood to do it today. As a young person, the sense that I don’t have anything to wear when your closet is full is ubiquitous. Minimalist styling is not about wearing the same thing everyday (nor having a different outfit everyday, necessarily), it’s not about a bare-bones budget that suggests cheap = superior. It’s some happy medium that allows you to maximize your wardrobe so that every piece has its place.
