Are you of the school of thought that boho chic is just for muddy festival fields and the crazily-cool hippies we all secretly wish we could be? Well think again!
Boho is back with a bang this season and this time it’s made its way into our day-to-dark wardrobes (that confusing space previously occupied by muddled outfits and make up that didn’t know if you were coming or going!). It’s here to free us from the hours of primping and priming, and enlighten us in the ways of dressed-down luxury, and I for one, am ready to go on the journey!
For me, one of the most exiting parts about a date with the other half, or night out with my best girlfriends, is getting ready. Trawling through my wardrobe, trying endless combinations and endless opinions until I feel flawless. Why let a little seasonal shift get in the way of that? Our first look, with its luxurious Bardot top, ultra sexy lace skirt and skyscraper heels just screams ‘hot date!’ to me. The slinky skirt adds just the right amount of leggy appeal, while the voluminous top and oversized sunnies keep an air of mystery. Look number two gives the 70’s a sexy shakeup, the simple crochet vest plays peek-a-boo with your tan, while the white hot shorts flaunt your toned pins. A straw floppy hat is an unmistakably vintage touch that tops off your look to perfection!
Sometimes we all want to feel a bit special, even if you’re not doing anything but getting out and about in the sunshine on a lazy weekend, and that’s where these beauts come in. You’ll be happy to hear that basics are big this season (hurray!) and all they need is a few tweaks to make a head-turner of an outfit. This tee and Glamorous ripped shorts combo is the perfect canvas to introduce layering into your summer repertoire with this South longline crochet cardigan. With a colourful straw beach bag to hold your essentials, you’re ready to get up and go! This season is all about the white hues, intricate details and swing shapes – this South embellished neck dress ticks everything off in one! The pretty pom-pom trim gives a playful touch, and the simple cut is the ultimate in versatility. Just throw a denim jacket over your shoulders, tousle those locks and be hot to trot in a flash!
You may be lusting after the bohemian trend, but the thought of a wardrobe overhaul is holding you back. Fear not! With a couple of new additions to your existing stash of summer staples you can dip your toe in the pool of luxe- bohemia. Why not pair a cute crochet trim top with Love Label dungarees and a fringed bag next time you find yourself in a style rut? Or pair your favourite denim skirt with a gypsy top as you venture away from the pool to explore your new surroundings. A little of what you know, and a little of what you don’t, isn’t that the best way to try out new things?
Which of our lovely looks will you be trying? Will you be going full on boho babe, or adding a hint of retro chic into your everyday outfits this summer? Check out The Edit here!
See you soon!
