Spring/Summer 2014 Trend Report: Free Spirit

Hello! This spring/summer, free-spirited/boho looks are popping up everywhere you turn. This trend can be found in most retail stores but Free People and Urban Outfitters really hit the mark with their hippie-chic collections this season. Walking into Free People and Urban Outfitters this season is similar to walking into a bohemian wonderland that will cause you to dream of indie music festivals and imagine what living in the seventies would be like. This trend is such an easy-going trend which makes it impossible for me to resist.

Boho: Tops

Peasant, tie-dye, loose-fitting and babydoll tops all evoke a boho-chic vibe. Extra points for tops in soft colors such as pale pink and lavender.

Boho: Shoes

Neutral colored shoes- flatforms and woven sandals in particular- emit a bohemian vibe.

Boho: Dresses

Peasant style dresses, loose-fitting dresses, tiered dresses and dresses with quirky prints all evoke the trend. Style them with neutral colored sandals and a boho headpiece and you're good to go.

Boho: Vests/ Jackets

As for jackets or vests, fringe vests and jackets are the way to go. Pay close attention to texture as crochet, suede and macrame pieces dominate. Wear these over a printed dress with easygoing sandals and stone rings for a chic, free-spirited look.

Boho: Accessories

Of course, accessories also play a large role in the free spirit trend. Flower crowns, golden headpieces and floppy hats are all trending headpieces at the moment. To capture the hippie trend with jewelry, go for stone rings (especially turquoise stone rings) or layered golden necklaces. Round sunglasses and fringe bags also celebrate the bohemian trend.
