In case you missed it, one of our favorite Fairfield County, CT blogs, Fairfieldista, featured an article we did on one of our favorite spring trends, the 70's-inspired bohemian look. Fairfieldista is a great resource for local events, family activities, restaurants, and of course, fashion!
This spring, there is a huge 1970’s influence with classic bohemian pieces re-imagined in a modern way. Suede is prevalent on everything from sleeveless dresses and trench coats to cross-body bags and lace-up sandals. Fringe is also big and can be seen gracing handbags, jackets and even long skirts. Another key component of this overarching theme is the maxi dress, done in flowing silks and chiffons in beautiful, rich prints. For footwear, wedges, platforms and gladiators are everywhere.
How to wear this trend without feeling like it’s too overdone? The trick to keeping the look modern is to choose one statement piece and keep the rest of your look simple and sleek. For example, ground a long gypsy-style dress with simple strappy sandals. If you’d like to try a suede jacket with fringe, pair with high-waisted jeans and a solid cotton sweater or tank and sleek wedges. Accessories are a great way to add a hint of bohemian flair. Wear a simple, chic outfit and go all out with a fabulous pair of lace-up gladiators or fringe cross-body bag.
As just seen gracing countless runways from New York to Milan, this trend has staying power and will continue through fall.
