Get inspired by the enchanting bohemian style this season… Layer airy silks and elegant lace, add stunning Ottoman Hands jewellery and finish with some sun-kissed summer magic to create a perfect festival look! With Coachella, one of the biggest events on the festival calendar, finally upon us, we cannot help but get excited about the summer ahead!

The Boho Chic look is once again gracing the pages of our favourite style bibles, but have you ever wondered about the roots of this iconic style? It first evolved during the 1970s where exotic separates with an ethnic, organic and gypsy feel appealed to the fashion crowd as they dreamt of free spirited global society and the wardrobe to fit their new lifestyle. After the minimalist and structured 60s, bohemian style offered new flowing shapes, beautiful colours and enchanting prints. The hippie or the retro-chic also offered an alternative to those who did not want or could not afford expensive designer clothes. In fact many designers of the late 60s and 70s have taken their inspiration from the eclectic style of the beautiful flower children. Throughout decades, the style has evolved thanks to influential artists and fashion icons around the world. Here are some of our favourite movers and shakers rocking the festival look!

Jane Birkin, the British-born icon, synonymous with Parisian chic, epitomises the ultimate bohemian beauty whilst modelling Ossie Clark’s signature look: chiffon trouser suit, layering and contrasting prints. Our Rose Quartz & Yellow Tassel Pendant will instantly add a finishing touch and will help recreate this stunning and timeless look.

No one has worked the boho luxe as well as Bianca Jagger in the 70s. Delicate, translucent silk dresses and floral prints are still at the forefront of festival fashion. Complete this romantic and whimsical look with a pair of statement chandeliers. Our choice falls on Yellow & White Agate Safari Earrings.

The infamous super-blogger and Fashion designer Chiara Ferragni rocks the festival look with pretty paisley prints and matching off the shoulder crop top. We love the breezy country romance of this outfit, complete with wide brim fedora and layers upon layers of delicate necklaces, bracelets and rings. Start accessorising this look by creating an ultimate ring stack with our Gold Festival Ring Pack.

If you are planning to try a more understated version of the festival look this season, we recommend to draw your fashion inspiration from Ellie Goulding. She gets this minimal, yet oh-so-cool look on point, adding some boho vibes with the sheer ensemble. When going minimal, don’t forget to bring a splash of festival-ready colour to your wrists. We think Pastel Multi Coloured Cord Slider Bracelet is just perfect.

Alexa Chung, the darling of fashion, achieves the classic festival chic combo with off the shoulder ruffled top and a high waisted denim skirt. The Hot Pink Agate and Turquoise Tear Drop Earrings is enough to add colour and exotic charm this outfit.

Vanessa Hudgens injects a folksy vibe into her festival outfit with a weaved crop top, which just so happens to be the key buy for this season. The Coral Evil Eye Adjustable Cord Bracelet is the perfect piece to highlight the colourful print and bring a little bit of sartorial mysticism.
