One sleepless night I came across a new YouTube channel, Amanda Around the Globe. Hours of viewing followed and I fell in love with her videos touching on travel, minimalist lifestyle and vegan eating on the go. For once insomnia came in handy.
I had a chance to photograph Amanda and ask her a few questions about minimalist fashion.
When traveling, what is your most worn item of clothing?
When traveling, I most often wear a black tank top. It is so versatile and simple.
What is your favorite accessory?
I don't use too many accessories. The ones I do have tend to be souvenirs. I have a pair of blue drop earrings that I got in Cusco, Peru - these are probably my favorite accessory. I love wearing them when I feel like dressing up a bit; usually I don't wear any jewelry at all. They are such a pretty color and really pop.
Who has influenced your style?
I seem to pick up style inspiration in every culture I visit. I am always noticing styles that I like in different countries. I love the boho-style pants from Thailand especially. I have a pair that I wear almost every night.
What is a good first step in moving towards a minimalist wardrobe?
A good first step in moving toward a minimalist wardrobe is to find your style. Pick one style that you can work with, and keep clothing as neutral as possible.
