Minnie Seibt Chats to The Idle Man

Minnie Knows

We chat with fashion blogger Minnie Seibt about this years highlights, her advice on men’s fashion and her tips on social media. 

Check out the rest of the Best Of The Web pieces.

After interning during a stressful, action packed fashion week, Minnie Seibt decided she needed to share her experiences with the web, and the blog Minnieknows was born. Now working as a freelance stylist, Minnie splits her time between making people look beautiful and filling her blog with sharp articles on fashion, music and beauty.

How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?

It’s been a great year! I’ve worked really hard to turn my blog into a business and it’s all finally coming together. I also moved back to Berlin from London after my studies which was a pretty big step since I never thought I’d live here again. I had a lot of highlights, like an amazing blog trip to Fuerteventura, interning at the prestigious fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar Germany and making holiday in Croatia; the most beautiful country I’ve ever been to.

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

Often by The Weeknd. It’s just addictive and I can’t wait to see him live next summer! 😀

What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style to you?

The shoes! That’s the first thing I look at when I see a guy. I just have this thing with classic shoes like brogues but I also love a good pair of sneakers on a guy!

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Keep it simple yet sharp. I really love a man who knows how to rock a simple cashmere jumper without looking boring. I also believe investing in great quality and timeless pieces is very important. For women too for that matter.

1 tip to grow your Instagram account!

Produce high quality content and make sure to post regularly. Also stay true to yourself and only promote content you really love yourself. Be authentic!

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

I have to concur with Charlotte! Apart from a wedding band I really don’t like rings and necklaces on a guy even if it’s Justin Theroux or Johnny Depp. No go for me.

Worst dating experience you’ve had?

I never really had one to be honest. But I also just properly dated my current boyfriend so far, who is most probably the guy I’ll also marry 🙂

Any major plans for the rest of 2015?

Nothing major planned. I wish I could travel to a sunny place like Mexico or Marocco before we’re in 2016 but loads of work & exciting projects are waiting for me until the end of the year. In 2016 I’d love to attend New York Fashion Week though. So hopefully that’ll work out. 🙂

Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

My boyfriend of course! But I’m obviously being biased here. I also enjoy looking at the very dapper David Gandy.
