Do you enjoy the bohemian laid back approach to summer styling?
Smartening up summer trends passed like festival chic and boho, Hippy-Luxe encompasses the popular 70’s shapes with a chicer edge. The fun is still there but it’s more refined and grown up, like our beloved festival girl has taken a bath and invested in some subtle tailoring.
Read on for my top Hippy-Luxe inspired pieces.
It all started with a dress. This White Embroidered Maxi Dress by Miss Selfridge has stolen my heart! It’s pretty much a dupe of the Alice Temperley LONG FRANCINE TATTOO DRESS version you can see here, I love it!
The Hippy-Luxe trend is all about long layers. A suede jacket or Mongolian fur trimmed trench is the perfect throw-on for when the sun sets.
No Hippe-Luxe recreation should be without a killer pair of shades. Round, cat eye and aviators all work well. I love these 3 styles, especially the slightly geometrically shaped, retro cat eyes by Celine.
I am a long-standing fan of the cowboy boot! There is something relaxed and bohemian about pairing a scruffy cowboy inspired boot with a floaty, feminine dress to add some bad-gal vibes. For All-Americana star spangled banner fun these Stella McCartyney’s get my vote. For a more everyday option I love these quadruple buckle ones in black by Senso.
Hippe-luxe makeup is all about complexion. Get a glow made easy with Charlotte Tilbury’s Beach Sticks, which are super versatile with a beautifully luxurious and blendable formula. Just smudge on for defined cheekbones, rosy cheeks and a pop of colour on the eyes and lips. A modern twist on a 70’s inspired patchouli scent is this fresh and earthy White Patchouli by Tom Ford; a modern yet heady mix light enough to be worn everyday but strong enough to be unmissible.
