THIS Is What Bohemian Style Looks Like in 2018
Calling all flower children and free spirits! Some of the most boho trends of the '60s and '70s are back with a modern twist that will have you scouring the 'gram, the Gucci runway, and every vintage store in town. The whimsical styles of the past have returned with a decidedly more elevated vibe. Scroll on for the best of these throwback staples — faux fur, fringe, and flowing, fabulous everything — updated with more polish and sophistication than ever before.
Livin' That Kooky Clog Life: Add the patterned socks, velvet blazer, and fearless frames — and be sure the comfy clogs remain the same. (via @desertmannequin)
Less Folk, More Faux Fur: Textured and accented denim replace the more folksy jackets of the Summer of Love era. (via @songofstyle)
Jump(suit) Around: Yes to year-round jumpsuits! This throwback fashion staple literally pairs with any season, be it rain boot or espadrille weather. (via @gabifresh)
Bright Florals: Toss out the muted paisleys of years past, because it's time to move into 2018 with bold color and floral statement pieces like this dope coat. (via @thestylethesaurus)
Elaborate Embroidery: We're seeing embellishments everywhere right now, but nothing quite compares to intricately gorgeous hand-embroidery. Gone are the days of sloppy sewing 'cause it's all about that sleek (and expensive) stitch now. (via @galagonzalez)
Fringe Everything: Bags, boots, jackets, you name it! Anything benefits from a little free-spirited fringe. (via @somethingnavy)
Denim on Denim on Denim: All hail taking the Canadian tux to brand new (three-layer) territory. (via @leandramcohen)
That Jacket, Tho: We're already *all* about statement sweatshirts this year, and now we just need an equally eye-catching jacket. It's clear that scouring the fanciest flea to find a gem like this is going to be high on the priority list. (via @alltheprettybirdsofficial)
Free Flowin': The retro peasant dress stays true with fluid fabric but becomes ultra chic with a polished, white silhouette. (via @seaofshoes)
Chic Accessories Galore: Be it hippie headband, beaded harem bracelet, or embellished handbag, the new boho is all about layering it ALL on, so don't be afraid to get a little radical. (via @gucci)
Vintage Comfort: Shabby chic has never looked this polished. Antique store scores meet modern trends like this fab shearling jacket paired to perfection with these caramel booties and relaxed trousers. (via @kahlanabarfield)
Satin Sashes: Holy wallpaper! Austin Powers meets high fashion with this paisley frock finished with a bold, salmon sash — a show-stealer for sure. (via @gucci)
Colorful Patchwork: It's been many a middle schooler's fave sewing project, but the patchwork skirt resurgence has grown up with clean details and a sophisticated color story for the win. (via @inesdelafressangeofficial)
