This year in Milan designers moved into the more sophisticated or quirky side of things, by delving into bohemian fashion. This could include anything from the staple flowing dresses to the overall persona of a model.
Bohemian style is very au courant particularly for spring/summer, so there’s no real surprise that it yet again made the list of the best spring 2017 fashion trends from Milan Fashion Week.
A pronounced bohemian breeze has also blown through the Cruise 2017 collections of labels such as Roberto Cavalli, Etro & Fendi. From folky influences to full-blown boho-chic.
Spring 2017’s bohemian cool girl is as far from the Coachella stereotype as they come; think earthy tones, organic fabrics and an eclectic edge.
Splashy florals never die and this season they came in small nostalgic sprigs at Dolce & Gabbana, where they put a ’50s spin on the trend with feminine frills.
All in all think Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks for the 2017 bohemian trend in fashion. Bold prints, paisley pattern, breezy blouses, bell sleeves, floppy hats, fringes, suede, embroidered denim, flared jeans.
Janis Lyn Joplin, her raw, powerful and uninhibited singing style, combined with her turbulent and emotional lifestyle, made her one of the biggest female stars in her lifetime. Also she was the epitome of bohemian style.
While Stevie Nicks is not only famous for her music, but also her timeless bohemian style. Over-the-knee boots, fringe-adorned dresses, flared denim and lace dresses all define the Stevie Nicks look.
A look that is still used and fashionable today.
Going back in history proves once again to be inspirational.
