Bohemian Summer

Inspired by the 60s and the 70s fashions, boho style (bohemian) has returned and looks more chic than ever. Boho-chic style keeps main hippie features: ethnic influences, DIY looks (tie-dye and patchwork), raw fabrics and materials (canvas, straw, wood) mixing them with heirloom pieces like lace dresses, embroidered linen blouses and crochet shawls, vintage men's hats, shoes and belts but also with glam and modern accessories like the latest "it" bag or the ultimate pair of shoes, metallic sparkles or fancy jewelry.

Style tip: the new boho look is comfy and chic, thus, perfect for this summer. Choose loose tops, tunics, caftans, embroidered or bejeweled necklines, peasant skirts and maxi dresses. Prints: tie-dye, patchwork as well as tribal or floral motifs will get you there. As for boho-chic accessories think natural stuff: straw or canvas hats and totes, cross-body suede bags and wooden jewelry. Complete the look with glam details such as a set of golden bangles or a deluxe pair of designer shoes/sandals.
