ON TREND: MODERN BOHEMIAN

While on vacation I caught up on a lot of reading and managed to peruse stacks of magazines. Yummmm!! However, this time what I saw left me feeling rather deflated. Fall fashion heralds heaps of oversized knits that disconcertingly call to mind a grandmother’s knitting on speed (Celine’s  knitwear ensembles have me particularly worried) , more 60’s mod silhouettes in blush and other shades of pale pink than I care to encounter (haven’t we had enough of that?), lots of off-the-wall interpretations of shearling and fur, massive amounts of culottes (really, people? Only models can carry this look off!) and wack-a-doodle prints. Now I know from years of experience that taking the catwalk too seriously is a mistake. The runway to real-life adaptations usually take care of the scariest looks and render them more wearable. It was just hard (for me) to get very excited about many of the looks. Until I turned the page and found myself in bohemian heaven with darker, sophisticated interpretations by the likes of Dolce e Gabbana and Valentino, among others. There’s more of an edge to the look this season, which suits me just fine. Not that much pastel, more ‘rock-chick grows up’ than ‘mired in Woodstock’, if you get my drift. Now, I’m not a hard-core Boho-chic kind of gal like Sienna Miller, but I do love my tunics with boho prints,  floaty flowered skirt and dresses, beautiful handcrafted kimono’s, pretty fur vests,and a great pair of stacked-heel knee-high boots, and I certainly plan to incorporate this look into my fall and winter wardrobe this year. So, that being said, bring on the fall!
