More Is More! You've Heard Of Minimalism; Now Try Maximalism!

When it comes to fashion, we only go by one rule: “better safe than sorry”. However, we also go by another rule: “if it’s not turning heads, it’s not worth an effort”. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is where maximalist style stems from.

The exact opposite of minimalism, maximalism celebrates excess and redundancy in sartorial choices. For instance, at first, picking two clashing colours may sound ridiculous, but that’s precisely the point! Think Sonam Kapoor’s endless fashion picks that made you want to scream “tone that look down!” at your computer screen. But, hey, you don’t become a fashion icon by playing safe, do you?

Today, we make merry with loud prints, bright colours, and tons of embellishment. Come aboard maximalist style and you’ll never step down from power dressing:

1. Look at these larger-than-life fur coats over striking colours and statement shoes.
