You can emulate your favorite brutalist structures with some Balenciaga sneakers and simple silver jewelry. This minimalist aesthetic is perfect for minimalists who want to make a bold statement but still keep it simple. It features graphic lines, monochromatic colors, and heavy-handed concrete designs.
Victorian architecture encompasses the particularly ornate style that originated during Queen Victoria’s reign from 1837 to 1901. The Victorian aesthetic is known for its strong emphasis on detail, embellishment, and rich materials like luxurious silk, jacquard print, and detailed brocade. Dressing in the style is a perfect way to pay tribute. You can find a period-appropriate tufted chaise longue or grand staircase to take a picture with.
Art Deco was a popular movement in Europe and the U.S. during the 1920s and 30s. It influenced art, decor and building styles throughout that time period. Even today, iconic structures like the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Chrysler building still define New York City’s skyline. Dressing in Art Deco is all about the details—think playful geometric designs like chevrons, zigzags, pyramids, and more. The Marine Serre jacket, which mimics decorative glass, paired with the strappy By Far platform loafers (sale at SSENSE), should get you on your way.
Even though industrial architecture is rooted in the functional, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Durable denim, cotton canvas and rubber lug soles are subtle, but complementary nods towards this style of architecture. This style incorporates elements like open floor plans and high ceilings. They also use materials such as concrete, brick, and metal. To incorporate an industrious feel into your own wardrobe, we recommend looking to contemporary brands like Carhartt WIP, Levi’s, and Camper for updated workwear pieces.
Bauhauswas born in post-WWII Germany. It aimed to combine fine art, design, and technology into functional living spaces that reflected a less is more mentality. Focusing on minimal but still eye-catching pieces, we don’t think you can go wrong with these geometrically-minded and Bauhaus-ian accessories from Jacquemus, Staud, and Amina Muaddi.
Originating in the ’60s, postmodern architecture embraces bold design and the freedom of expression. We believe these high-quality basics are the same as how postmodern architects reworked old-school design methods. This outfit can be given a modern look by adding these Converse sneakers with Basquiat branding, Agolde reworked jeans, or a three-way convertible bag.
Scandinavian style has been trending as of late (just ask TikTok), and we couldn’t be happier. If you’re in the mood to dress up your home in the bright and minimal style, look to pieces like Arne Jacobsen’s iconic egg chair, Gustaf Westman’s curvy mirrors, and all things (vintage) IKEA. With brands like Acne Studios, Tekla, and Ganni, it’s easy to dress yourself to match any Scandi-chic space.
