Trend of the week: The new bohemians

Wanderlust gets the luxe treatment, writes Annmarie O'Connor.

INSPIRATION

This season's boho offering bears a haute hippie hallmark. Paisley prints, silk robes, caftans and dresses; artisanal embroidery and tribal jewellery mirror the sovereign spirit of summer.

For style cues look to Italian label Etro – a mix of peripatetic charm and eclectic affluence; luxe layered separates mixed with earthy, textured accessories.

The result? Festival fantasy wear at its best.

STYLE HACKS

PERFECT PAIRS

Loveworn leather boots and jackets make fitting companions for folksy smock dresses.

PRINTS CHARMING

Make like Etro and pair strong stripes with paisley prints for a more ethnic-inspired edge.

ROBE UP

Layer one of this season’s silky kimonos over jeans and a tank top for city chic.

FRINGE BENEFITS

Dab hand at DIY? Give your hems a world traveller twist with pompoms, fringing or tassels.
