Boho Blouse – Summer trend
I wouldn’t particularly consider myself a boho kind of a gal, but as soon as there’s a wink of sunshine and the promise of warmer weather ahead, I always find myself being drawn to slightly more artsy looks. I blame Alex from The Frugality – once she got that Next peasant blouse out, I couldn’t get the notion out of my head. It’s a relaxed vibe and perfect for weekend wear when there’s nothing better to do than soak up the sun and hang out with a glass of Rosé and a good book.
My go-to summer looks tend to revolve around denim cut-offs and a hat. Add a billowy peasant blouse, and that’s about the extent of my hipster leanings. But luckily for me this season, the boho blouse is having a bit of a moment. They are endlessly forgiving on the silhouette and can cover up all manner of lumpy bits around the upper body – perfect for popping on after long vacation lunches and catching up on your Kindle list.
Think pom pom detailing on cheesecloth shirts, fringe and embroidery add-ons adorning linen tops and you’ve kind of got the idea. If you can find one with mahoosive sleeves – like this Club Monaco one I snapped up recently, then you are a nailing another hot spring trend. Add to that my trusty Current Elliott denim cut-offs and this gorgeous Davina Mulford Panama hat, and that’s pretty much my summer look.
Boho blouse… where to shop.
Now I’m not advocating full on hippy life, signing up to a commune and spending the rest of your life roving festivals in a camper van making macrame pot holders. Far from it, the trend is all about adding a pop of bohemian to your regular uniform and easing yourself into more of a summery vibe. So here are a smattering of boho blouses worth checking out if you are in the market to road test this relaxed trend this upcoming summer.
