Being so obsessed by the minimalism rule the designer wants the attire to be kept something casual and minimal with the designs yet being bold and chic to stand out in the crowd. It would be a jump suit that has a cutaway design at the waist just to give the illusion of curvy silhouette and the side slit from the area just above the knee reflecting bold and sexy look.

To blend with the bold and edgy look of the garment sleek middle hair partition style would be done to get more of subtle and romantic look.
Since the attire itself stands out, make-up is suggested to be very minimal with just the application of eyeliner and softer eye shadows.
