Soft rock meets breezy boho for the ultimate love-in, says Annmarie O’Connor.

Trend of the week: Rock meets boho


Last season’s 70s celebration doesn’t look set to stop, although the party now has a more acoustic edge.

Ethnic prints find expression in fluid lengths and diaphanous fabrics, while patchwork and suede continue to claim their catwalk domain.

Take yours textbook – earthy and romantic or insouciant and devil-may-care. It’s all equal.


■ Get extra mileage out of summer’s kaftan with flat overthe-knee boots. Layer up with a louche oversized knit.

■ Gilets (we love Zara’s embroidery number) make canny trans-seasonal staples. Wear now with a billowing blouse, pair with high-waist jeans and a poloneck when the mercury drops.

■ Not a beatnik kind of gal? Temper the trend with tailored separates as seen at Chloé.

■ The 70s continues its rollover from last season so hang onto any suede or fringing.
