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!

Festival fringe – Weekly Wishlist

Nah, not that one! This one! Fringing to wear to the festivals this summer! It’s still over a month to Edinburgh’s festival fringe, but you can get your own festival fringe ready right now. This fringe trend has been around all year so far, and is showing no signs of going anywhere.

Thanks to the 1970s and new boho vibes that are here,and set to stay into autumn and winter, fringes are not just for your hair in 2015 (or Edinburgh!).

Our festival fringe even includes fringed wellies! How fantastic are these Hunter boots! (£109.99, Schuh). We love, love, love them! If you’re not into wellies, then perhaps a pair of fringed gladiators will make your festival fringe? Gorgeous fringed flats from H&M (£14.99) or perhaps knee high fringed glads from Schuh (£65) are more up your street? Perhaps New Look’s fringed heels (£29.99) are perhaps not perfect festival attire!

Fringing fun weekly wishlistVally of the Dolls cute fringed grey top at JOY (£25) nails this trend for summer, whilst H&M’s burgundy fringed bag (£19.99) will see you right through to Autumn. Claire’s fringed bag (£30) is big, beautiful and beige – perfect for the summer months.

French Connection’s gorgeous fringed dress (£150) will see you through as well – and remember, black looks fantastic in the summer heat as well. A fringed kimono is a bit of a musthave – Influence @ JOY have a lovely bright white one (£30) for summertime.

H&M’s black fringed backpack (£29.99) is perfect for lugging all your festival fringe or summer essentials around with you. Also at H&M, the obligatory fringed jacket, this one is dark grey, faux suede, and perfect for chilly summer nights, and autumn evenings, and is just £29.99.

Finally, we love these cute fringe shorts (£17.99) from New Look – get your festival fringe on now!
