Inspired by the catwalks, the boho traveller trend puts an exotic twist on the classic bohemian pre-season styles we’ve been seeing this summer.
Areas that are causing a stir are maxis, fringing, stand out prints and suede and I’m loving all of them!
This season’s runways were full of the luxe boho traveller from stand out prints at Burberry and Emilio Pucci to vintage-inspired suede and laced up heeled gladiators at Chloe.
As well as the runways inspiring us, celebs are always ahead of the curve showing us new ways to wear prints or fun ways to accessorise a look.
These boho babes fully immerse themselves into the trend with Kendall emphasising her leggy look in a pair of printed kick flare trousers and cute top, Mary Kate breaking the rules once again in a cool oversized blouse with messy hair and a tan bag, Nicole Richie going all out with her accessories for a real bohemian vibe and, of course, Kate Moss with her fringed jacket and suede boots!
Let’s look at one of my favourite looks from the trend…
Maxis are always a hit when it comes to summer, but what makes this season’s boho traveller look a little different is the masses of fabric creating a floaty, fluid silhouette, not to mention the iconic prints that create an exotic statement – just look at Emilio Pucci’s take on the trend.
Sleeves are becoming increasingly popular despite the soaring temperatures and large, layered accessories are a must. Simple as.
All about the prints these maxi dresses show you how to wear the maxi this summer. The Vila Virosetta maxi dress is full of petite florals – a boho-inspired layered look with a layered feather necklace, while above is South’s take on the trend which includes a mesmerising Geo print, sleeves and an oversized coin necklace.
Fringing has always been an integral part to the boho trend and the traveller look is no different, except that fringing is no longer just for accessorising hems, it now takes centre stage either completely accenting your outfit or featuring lengthier looks for added drama.
Maintaining the usual jacket sleeves and handbags it now adds your collection of dresses, skirts and even shoes to its ever-growing repertoire!
Samantha Faiers leads the way this season when it comes to fringing with her gorgeous fringe dress that’ll take you from beach-to-bar this summer. Creating a stunning fluid silhouette with every step you’ll look and feel luxe in it.
Vila keep their fringing ultra boho with their faux suede tan waistcoat, but allow the fringed hems to extend all the way to hem of your skirt to give your silhouette the movement and drama we’ve talked about.
Stand Out Prints
Prints are always around when it comes to Spring Summer, yet the boho traveller is less about florals and more about geo and Aztec-inspired patterns as well as bold statement colours just like we saw at Burberry! From trousers and maxi dresses to skirts and tops, these stand out prints are working their way around your wardrobe.
South are leading the way when it comes to interpreting this look with their jersey bell sleeve top and matching maxi skirt whisking us away to Turkey, while their halter neck dress looks like it has taken its inspiration straight from Burberry’s runway!
Featuring a more Aztec-inspired pattern, their jersey kickflare trousers channel the season’s love of seventies chic as well as stand out prints.
Styling & Accessorising
Another hot trend emerging that’s fun to style up with your boho traveller trend is temporary tattoos. In a mix of gold metallic, simply apply them with a splash of water and display the Aztec-inspired patterns proudly on your arms, face, feet and so on – they’re perfect for festivals – even our gorgeous Rochelle loves em’!
And last up on how to accessorise boho traveller style is, of course, the boho braid modelled by our very own Samantha Faiers and Rochelle Humes.
To get Rochelle’s Around The World boho braid follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Split your hair in half at the nape of your neck – just like you’re going to do pigtails!
Step 2: Braid both sections of hair into pigtails, securing them with a thin hair grip.
Step 3: Pull the braids up over your ears, like you’re wearing a crown, and cross the ends – tucking them underneath each other.
Step 4: When you’re happy pin the braids in place and finish with plenty of hairspray to keep it on top of your head!
