If you want to soak up every last ounce of summer sun before it fades away, make sure you take note of the latest trend to sweep the fashion world: bohemian dresses. Yes, dear readers, thanks to top tastemakers like Jessica Alba and Rachel Zoe, bohemian dresses are having a major moment, and rightly so! Not only do they have an easy, breezy summer vibe, but they are also perfect for making the move into fall. On that note, we suggest you click through to today’s Trend Report for all the need-to-know details on where to find them and how to wear them! Read on!
One of the best things about this trend is that it is so easy to wear, which was definitely important for Jessica Alba, who was spotted wearing a printed Tibi dress last month while eight months pregnant. As you can imagine, comfort was of the essence for Jessica, but that doesn’t mean she sacrificed her personal style. On the contrary, by teaming her pretty dress with a matching bag and a pair of heels, Jessica managed to create an effortlessly chic ensemble. Inspired? Put together your own stylish maternity ensemble by picking up T-Bags’ Printed Satin Halterneck Maxi Dress ($215) or ASOS’s Maxi Dress ($94.81) and teaming it with a pair of wedges.
While many trends only work for specific occasions, this is a trend that can be worn in a number of different ways. For example, Miranda Kerr was recently spotted wearing a red floral maxi dress on her way to a photo shoot in Sydney, Australia. By pairing her dress with gold accessories, Miranda added a glamorous twist to her outfit, ensuring she can wear it all day and all night! You can make this look your own by picking up a flirty dress like Winter Kate’s Passenger Halter Maxi Dress ($286) or Ella Moss’s Autumn Silk Maxi Dress ($248). Then, add Alexis Bittar’s Duchamp Hammered Bangle ($145) and you are all set.
Rachel Zoe has often expressed her love of the seventies, so it is no surprise to see her leading the charge when it comes to this trend. Late last month, Rachel attended the Super Saturday event in Water Mill, New York wearing a white eyelet maxi dress. By pairing her dress with modern accessories—specifically, chunky heels, a tassel necklace, and oversized sunglasses—Rachel has ensured her ensemble is of-the-moment. To put together an equally chic look, grab Nasty Gal’s Crochet Kimono Dress ($78) or Free People’s Embroidered Mesh Maxi Dress ($89.60). Then, simply add a pair of Marc By Marc Jacobs’ Oversized Round Havana Sunglasses ($98) and Clara Kasavina’s Gia Tassel Pendant Necklace ($213).
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is quickly becoming one of the best-dressed models around and it’s all thanks to ensembles like the one above, which she wore out to dinner in Malibu last month. Her printed blue maxi dress is flirty enough for night, but also casual enough to wear during the day, making it the perfect piece for the girl-on-the-go. We like the way Rosie has paired it with ethnic-inspired earrings; this augments the bohemian vibe. You can make this look your own by picking up Parker’s Rectangle Print Cami Long Dress ($198) or Pins & Needles’ Floral Maxi Dress ($79) and wearing it with Dori Csengeri’s Mezzanote Earrings ($200) or Tiger Lily’s Bohemian Crystal Chandelier Earrings ($210).
