OOTD: Minimalist Mynt 1792
Contemporary plus label Mynt 1792 has been a favorite of mine ever since I got my first jacket from them two years ago (a piece that is still in heavy rotation). Their latest collection has tons of fun, summery prints and tempting, on trend color stories (like this military olive jumpsuit), so it was hard to decide what I wanted to try. In the end, I decided to go for something more minimalist, an aesthetic that has been appealing to me more as time goes on.
The navy faux leather moto leggings caught my eye right away – such a rich, unexpected color for the material. Once I got them, I fell even more in love. The fit is PERFECT. They hit exactly where I want them to on my waist and legs, and felt like they were made for me. They are more substantial than any other leather leggings I own – I actually think it would be safe to call them pants. The thoughtful details, like the moto seaming and the contrasting silver zippers on the back of the ankles, elevate them even more. I was instantly smitten, and I was not alone – I got compliments all day long. Even better, they are on sale now.
I wanted something simple and oversized to pair with the leggings, so the cascade sleeve top seemed like the natural choice. I agonized over whether to get it in white or black, but ended up going with my trusty NYC standby. I sized up to a 2x in the top to make sure it was flowy even over my chest, and the size worked just like I wanted. I love breaking the outdated “no navy and black!” fashion rule, and this combination was the perfect way to do so.
Part of minimalist dressing is not over-accessorizing, but I loved the way this necklace looked with the outfit. It is by Perry Street, available via jewelry subscription service Rocksbox.

With my 10 Crosby Derek Lam pewter loafer flats and a moto-inspired satchel, it was a look that embodied my take on miminalism.
