Boho is back for Summer 2015 with prints, fabrics, embellishments and shapes all nodding to the 70's. Saint Laurent, House of Holland and Tommy Hilfiger all showcased crochet, fringing and flares on their SS15 catwalks so you can bet that it’s going to be in a store near you this season.
You don’t have to embrace this trend from head-to-toe to keep your look current for the season ahead. With a few small additions and some simple styling tweaks you can easily incorporate boho into your existing wardrobe.
Clashing patterns will seem a little counter-intuitive for some but take a look at any existing prints that are in your wardrobe and experiment with wearing different pieces together. Florals mixed with stripes or polka dots or even florals mixed with more florals will all give an eclectic 70s vibe to your outfit.
Tip - when ‘clashing’ prints keep the colour ways the same to give your look a cohesive feel.
If skinny or boyfriend jeans aren't your thing you'll be pleased to hear that, in keeping with the 70's vibe, the denim shape of the season is most definitely the flared jean.
These are available everywhere and you can invest as much or as little as you want in finding the right fit. Pair with a simple tee and wedges or up the 70's feel with a check shirt and boho accessories!
Tip - this shape is perfect for those of you with hourglass body shapes and will balance out your curves if you are a triangle. Just watch your proportions - petites should opt for a softer bootcut style with less 'kick' whereas those of you who are tall and long-legged can really go for it!
Many of us will have a maxi skirt or dress from last season hiding away in our wardrobe somewhere.
A longer dress with a floral print or in warm colours gives a distinctly 70s feel whilst still looking current and elegant.
Tip - choose accessories with a 70's feel to bring a simple maxi dress up-to-date. For example, pair with some embellished sandals or tan wedges. A wide belt will show off your waist and give a different look to a dress you've worn before.
