A fresh wardrobe approach for spring

This season, it’s all about the boudoir, 1970s bohemian and military styles, so channeling your inner screen siren, haute hippie or G.I. Jane should be easy.

"We're seeing luxury designers embracing this trend and doing it with finer fabrics instead of hippie vintage," says Satine's Jeannie Lee, whose customers have been coming in for soft, blousy tops from Isabel Marant and fringed bags and jackets. "Sure, bohemian is a staple here in L.A., but it's being done in a way that is now appealing to women who wouldn't generally wear anything hippy-ish."

To incorporate a haute-hippie vibe into your look, accessories are the easiest — and most ubiquitous — way the trend is being translated. Suede fringe boots from Mulberry come in a sunny yellow, and fringe hoop earrings from Vita are vibrant teal. Bright-colored leather gives '70s-inspired accessories a fresh twist and mixes in effortlessly with light-wash denim pieces.

Clogs will be seen in every shape and color this season. A cinnamon brown pair from Seychelles looks like a style straight out of the '70s. The lack of hardware and embellishments makes these wearable and worth keeping for the next time this trend rolls around.
