How To Wear the Fall-Winter 17-18 Trends? That Seventies Show Edition

The 70s.  Charlie’s Angels.  The original.  I’ve grown up watching these gorgeous ladies.  Hence, I’ve been super duper influenced by that show.  So I am more than disposed to rock that trend this season.

It was seen on Marc Jacobs, Prada, Chloé and Gucci to name a few.

Boho Chic or Hippie Chic?

Boho Chic or Hippie Chic?

Hello girls,

How are you doing? I hope you had a great week and that you’re having an even greater weekend 😉

Here in Belgium, we had a few fabulously sunny crisp days. I love those kinds of days, and it made me long for those spring and summer days (and oh oh those summer nights 😀). And I pictured myself sitting at a nice café with some friends, recovering from an epic day at Coachella, pulling off the boho chic style.

And then I thought, wait a minute. What’s boho chic? And what’s hippie chic? Is there actually a difference between these two trends? And if yes, what are they? And then I thought, I cannot be the only person who’s a little confused about this. (Not like I lost any sleep about it, but still… ). So, it’s only natural that I came up with this article: Boho (Chic) vs Hippie (Chic). What’s the deal, trends?

Let’s start with boho chic. Boho comes from bohemian. Bohemian is:

“a person who has informal and unconventional social habits, esp. an artist or writer (New Oxford American Dictionary); or a nonconformist writer or artist who lives an unconventional life (Wordnet).  A synonym would be gipsy.”

When you check various websites, such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, or InStyle, here are the key words that are used to describe the boho chic trends: late 60’s and 70’s, maxi dresses, crochet dresses, Yves Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant, tie dye, paisley, floral, suzani, printed maxi dress, gladiator sandals, floppy hat, a fringe cross-body bag, fur vest, beaded vest, flared jeans, a coin-embellished belt, denim cut-offs, feather earrings, boots, …

The pioneers were Thea Porter (check this, this, and that out) and Talitha Getty (the featured image was taken from CBS), followed by Sienna Miller and Kate Moss in the UK, and the Olsen twins in the US.

How To Style Your Flared Jeans?

   Hello girls!

How have you been?  As promised, in this post I’m going to tell you the different ways you can style the flared jeans.

I have a confession to make.  I am a huge (like huuuuuuuuuuuuge) fan of Charlie’s Angels (FYI, I was a Kelly Garrett :D).  I love everything about that show: the girls were smart, and strong; Bosley was funny; their friendship was awesome; … and of course, the fashion was on point 🙂  Why am I talking about this iconic TV show?  Well, simply because I guess it’s one of the reasons that flared jeans are (one of) my favorite piece(s) of all time!  So, as you can imagine, I’m thrilled and super excited about the 70’s revival that we have been experiencing since last season.
