  1. A 2018 Summer Chic Boho Fashion Guide for Gypsy Clothing Lovers

    May 4, 2018 by barbara

    The Boho chic clothing look continues to adapt and morph into something fresh, yet still true to its essential nature every season – great news for the millions who love this relaxed style of dressing. There are some exciting new trends this summer, covering a range of styles and details that make boho chic so popular; so let’s take a look at the key themes for this summer.

    Crochet is huge

    From chunky, bright pieces sewn together to make a waistcoat or cover up, to delicate, lace-like patterns edging cotton dresses or showing off a midriff. Multi-coloured crochet halter tops, and fit and flare dresses are hot too.,/p>

    Skin is on show

    Boho chic nails sexy with tasteful glimpses of skin. This summer off the shoulder maxi dresses, pretty tops with just one dropped shoulder, lace, and sheer fabric midriff cutouts, and front splits in long skirts get that sexy boho chic look spot on.

    Jeans shorts are a staple

    Ragged cut and teamed with a layered, floaty, full coverage top half, this kind of outfit packs a punch without overdoing the exposure.

    Sleeves grab attention

    It’s rare that sleeves are worthy of a separate mention, but this season’s floaty, bell type designs on sheer, pale crinkled dresses and tops are both elegant and practical. Expect to see a lot of those sheer, lace-look inserts mid arm, too.

    Capes and wraps

    Sheer lace, or sturdy crochet, two contrasting styles are filling that late evening cover up gap. Fringing is set to be a popular feature on both.

    Other summer 2018 trends

    Delicate ruffles, over the top sequinned tops, tiny pom-poms and embroidery detail are popular, adding that extra something to both casual and smarter pieces, while hats are also big this season. Snap up anything wide brimmed or a white fedora to finish any outfit off perfectly.

    Colours or not?

    As you may expect white, cream and delicate pastels dominate the summer 2028 boho chic theme, but there are still sub trends to take advantage of. Slate grey is not uncommon, and although paisley doesn’t dominate there’s going to be plenty around. It looks great as a lightweight shirt paired with denim shorts, or reworked into an updated flouncy, tiered dress with a contemporary front cut out for a little edge. Check shirts with ripped shorts is a look getting some attention, and there will be lots of tribal/Aztec influenced pieces too.

    Jewellery

    Chunky, solid pieces, along with while hand and finger mini works of art are the hottest thing to go for, and of course mixing and matching is still very much allowed.

    Your summer 2018 boho chic look

    You most likely already appreciate the freedom boho chic fashion allows, so layer up, mix thing up and dress up in this unique, expressive and relaxed style flexible enough to suit everybody.
