The obligations of your work week have been met and are behind you. You’ve probably spent your entire work week solving its many challenges, pleasing others in the process. Now it’s time to think about some me time, family time or time with friends. It’s time to put on that favorite pair of chinos and polo shirt and lace up those sneakers.
Unlike your office casual or business casual wardrobe, your minimalist casual wardrobe should be built around your social life and lifestyle, all while keeping things as simple and stress-free as possible. That simplicity should be built around classic styles and colors made of cotton. While I appreciate the performance of wool and blended wool garments, it’s nice to put on some all-natural cotton that has that soft, comfortable feeling you’ve been looking forward to all week long. It’s time to stop worrying about being so pressed and creased and embrace a few wrinkles.
Your minimalist casual wardrobe should consist of the following:
- Chinos – moving away from wool into cotton
- Denim – medium to dark rinse
- Polos – classic as well as buttonless short and long-sleeve
- Knit – light-weight cotton cardigan
- Casual Shirt – denim or chambray
- T-shirt – V-neck pima cotton
- Shoes – sneakers and suede chukka boots
Whether it’s a weekend road trip, Friday night happy hour at the local pub, Saturday morning errand or Sunday brunch with your family, let the following be your guide to a relaxing weekend.
