Folk trend Weekly Wishlist

On the back of the 1970s trend that was everywhere last year (and continues into this summer), there’s a bit of a folk trend going on in fashion.

So, channel your inner Joni Mitchell, pick up that acoustic guitar, middle part your hair, and get some folk trend inspiration from this week’s weekly wishlist.

The folk trend is a hard one to actually interpret. It borrows from all sorts of ethnicities and fashion trends. Embroidery, aztec prints, feathers, dream catchers, denim, wedges, kaftans, floaty dresses – it’s all there.

it’s perfect for summer days, brilliant for fetivals, and you can go ‘full folk trend’ or just borrow little bits from it.

A dress is a great place to start. Think smock style, with tassels, emboidered details, and embellishments. Shorts are great for festivals, team them with cute crops tops if you dare, or smock tops, or floaty kaftans or kimono-style jackets. Go big with fringes and feathers. Go for bright, bold, aztec prints, or subtke natural shades. Have fun with this folk trend, it’s really easy to interpret.
