Now a friend and I like to think that we invented the ‘boho’ look, with our effortless wearing of the ‘dress over trousers’ and matching flares with long scarves that colour contrasted with the rest of the outfit. Now everyone is at it! It was fun while it lasted the first time around and although I have to say that I have grown away from that whole iconic fashion style, I do like to hang onto a few rare pieces in my wardrobe and get them out every now and then to remind myself of how trendy I was, back in the day. But good news! The boho look is back! And just in time for the festival season which will be kicking off in a few months. So dust off your kicking flares, stretch out your skinny rib tees and practise dancing again with those stacked platforms heels, because I reckon this trend will be around for a while yet. And just for our fans on Shoppersbase, we’ve selected some great items from Free People, a fabulous new US online clothing store that now ships to the UK!
