Boho Folk Style

Boho Folk Style. That’s what we are calling this look. Having the 1970s as a fashion staple this season is great – it allows for many interpretations. Everything is coming from the 1970s it seems. We’re a bit fed-up even writing 1970s. But the boho folk style? We will never tire of that.

Think Joni Mitchell and her guitar. Think hazy sunsets on the Californian west coast, hippies, ditsy florals, paisley prints, and there you have it  – boho folk style. Throw in a bit of Aztec print, some embroidery and some beading, and the perfect boho folk style is born – a mishmash of all sorts.

For winter team boho folk style dresses with bold Aztec print coats, and neutral accessories. Add a bit of snake print for a wild west nod!
