Seventies chic has reigned supreme all season and for the summer it’s all about embracing the carefree bohemian spirit of the trend.

Perfectly suited to the tranquil summer days that lie ahead, opt for floaty chiffon maxi dresses, light-as-air peasant blouses and tan-coloured fringed accessories.

On the Catwalk

The SS15 catwalks were awash with billowy bohemian frocks, romantic crochet and lace detailing and pretty ethnic prints creating a dreamy ethereal aesthetic.

How to Wear It

Despite boho’s laidback vibes, hippie-chic need not be reserved for the beach or festival fields. Embrace the trend in the city too with flowing silhouettes anchored with softly structured pieces, finishing the look with tasselled necklaces and sumptuous suede accessories for a luxurious touch.
