Is the most radical trend to resist trends altogether? Can you still even call it a ‘trend’ if it’s how you dress 365 days a year?
During a season of futuristic, retina-searing neons (still love you though, Prada), where if you weren’t wearing supercharged fluorescents you probably weren’t deemed ‘on trend’, you may have, at some point, found yourself clad in lime knits, even though hyper-saturated hues are so not your thing. But my days of sartorial knee-jerk reactions to fashion fads are finally behind me, and I constantly find myself rejecting trends in favour of my favourite ’70s zeitgeist: the floaty, effortless insouciance of modest boho dresses.
It doesn’t get easier than a breezy, billowing silhouettes with ruffled detailing here and there. While the shape might say Woodstock, a neutral colour palette boasts clean impact and is thoroughly contemporary. As proven by Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s Chloé girl update, nothing refreshes romantic dresses quite like the addition of a tough leather shoe – a mule, in my case. These buckled Charles & Keith beauties draw a brilliant line between these boho-chic vibes and still keeping the look wearable for everyday.
