Boho chic is BIG for another season, and this time it’s all about the 70s revival. This free-spirited fashion harks back to the French Romanticism, a time where artists shunned the conventional clothing of their period. Influenced by this movement, the decade witnessed floaty feminine pieces and stunning sheer fabrics in abundance. Bohemians believed the way you dress was a form of art, so let your creative flair run wild and experiment with our dreamy take on the trend.
The Very fashion team voyaged to Paris for the shoot, the elegant city where boho really began. The photos were breathtakingly beautiful, and we’ve selected the key looks to help you capture the heavenly hippie style. Get your sneak peak below.
Though the Bohemians favoured functionality over fashion, our #veryautumnedit effortlessly blends casual pieces with elaborate designs. Maxi dresses and tunics come in pretty paisley prints, while opulent fabrics lend a flirty and flattering fit. Embroidered blouses and lavish lace panels stop you from appearing dishevelled – a shaggy fur coat will really bring the glamour to your outfit. Natural earthy tones are the perfect platform for autumn/winter, so mix creams and browns with rich warming hues in deep burgundy shades. Floppy fedora hats with broad brims offer ladylike luxe – wear it over tousled tresses for an authentic 70s touch. Take the festival look from the field to the street with barely-there sandals in the evenings, or emulate ethnic styles with a pair of sumptuous suede heeled boots.
Inspired by a fusion of folk music and rock, the 70s saw plenty of fringing to leather jackets and accessories. Leather pieces toughen up the girly gypsy style and adds doses of drama – choose an edgy fringed biker for a modern vibe. From oriental origins, the kimono has mingled with bohemia for centuries thanks to its flowing cut. Delicate tassels and artistic prints bring the kimono into hippie fashion – get the look by throwing over distressed denim. The original Bohemians may have cast off the tight corsets and rigid bodices of their time, but that doesn’t mean that you should bury your body beneath layers of loose clothing. Thick tan leather belts define the waist, while skinny jeans balance out a slouchy silhouette – just make sure they’re ripped for a care-free edge.
