Get ready to set your style spirit free, says Annmarie O'Connor.
This season’s boho buzz bears a distinct global traveller vibe.
Diaphanous drawstring dresses and Baja capes combine with delicate details from bead and mirror embellishments to artisinal embroidery and freewheeling fringing.
For style cues look to French label (and haute hippie) Isabel Marant whose mix peripatetic cool continues to win the hearts and wardrobes of fashion editors, celebrities like Maggie Gyllenhaal and Halle Berry; and fans of off-duty chic.
SIMPLY DOES IT: Avoid any literal takes on this ‘less is more’ trend. Keep the look fuss-free by incorporating 1-2 pieces into a look. No more.
FRAYED NOT: Is boho an ‘oh no’? Try incorporating frayed edges (this season’s big story) with a scarf or hemline instead.
SLIP ‘N’ SLIDE: Sliders and slippers are spring’s new footwear fetish. Pair yours with a platform or revel in Eastern-inspired raffia for extra style points.
RETHINK FLOWER POWER: Go full bloom in earthy tones and keep grounded with low-fi pleating and frills.
