The bohemian trend has been going strong for quite some time now, thanks in large part to fashion heavy-hitters like Nicole Richie, Mary Kate Olsen, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and co. I will never tire of this style and I especially love the new ways designers are interpreting it.
For Spring ’09, it was all about the boho world traveler, and lots of designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Milly, Roberto Cavalli, and more found inspiration in far-flung, exotic locals. The boho looks this season are marked by beautiful beading, precise embroidery, and bold prints, adding a bit of jet-setter mystique to the laidback sensibility we have all come to love.
While we’ll be going in a bit of a different direction for fall, where the 80’s will reign supreme, I am all about going with what you love and I absolutely love the boho world traveler look, so in my world, it will never be outdated.
