Between globe-trotting prints, fringy fashions, and embroidered embellishments, there’s not much to dislike about this more-is-more trend. For the past several seasons fashion it-girls have been embracing these folk-inspired styles with gusto, and designers just keep on giving. From Etro’s always-lovely global print maxi dresses to Saint Laurent’s truly lust-worthy crochet boots, designers are proving that hippie chic is here to stay.
But how do you rock this folksy fashion in a way that feels more Florence and the Machine cool, and less like an extra from the Broadway musical Hair. The key is about finding the right balance of retro cool and modern sensibility. Have a fringe jacket and wide brim hat? Try pairing these pieces with a sleek leather pant. Or, mix your most sultry boho-babe dress with a closed toe slide for a effortless Loulou de la Falaise level of chic.
