Both the Bohemian fashion and lifestyle are on the rise.
Patchwork, embroidery, suede, paisley prints and chunky jewellery are everywhere. One of our favourite trends is back and better than ever. We are entering ‘Boho-chic’ territory and we couldn’t be more excited.
Known for its earthy roots and chilled out vibe, the original bohemians were gypsy style travellers, with Boho being derived from ‘Bohemian Homeless’ – accurately depicting the characteristics of mixing and layering clothes, prints and colours.
We can thank many of the fashion elite who have helped mould the Boho style, some key players, the Olsen Twins, Kate Moss, and Sienna Miller have all catapulted its popularity over the years and helped form the style we know and love today.
The resurgence of this trend has transformed into a “hippie-luxe” style with major fashion houses creating bohemian style collections oozing with romance, grit and harmony through chaos of layering and mixing old with new.
Designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Anna Sui, and Alexander McQueen have all kept the dreamy bohemian roots in their collections, but have modernised it to fit the average contemporary fashionista by adding panelling, sectioning the garment and using more geometrical prints .
The contemporary Bohemian radiates confidence and positive vibes. The style celebrates fun, freedom, creativity and a wild type of romance.
This fun and playful look is easy to manipulate and make your own. The style, known through an increasingly vast array of names, is all about accessorising with chunky jewellery, boots, sandals, coats/cardigans and hats, and most of all making the Boho look your own. The amount of accessories is up to the wearer’s digression with a whole range of possibilities and inspiration readily available.
Street style is teeming with popular models, actors and social media icons all rocking this latest trend, Hailey Baldwin, Vanessa Hudgens, Blake Lively and even Kate Middleton are sporting this look.
Dressed up or down, this versatile maxi will keep you company through both the warmer and cooler months. Sandals and floppy hat for the summer months or add a leather jacket and boots for a colder day. The authentic red patchwork design contrasts with the bold black panelling, mixing bohemian with contemporary. This elegant dress will compliment your figure and have you channelling your inner Bohemian goddess in no time. If the full Boho look is too much for you, a hint of crotchet, suede or a mixture of prints into your outfit will be enough to create a Boho vibe.
