La Vie Boheme

Mastering boho chic requires your wardrobe to take a big gulp of free-spirited style, but that doesn't mean the next step has to find you frolicking barefoot through fields of wildflowers (unless that's your thing). No, this season the trend is concentrating on the stylish side of the bohemian equation, meaning it's less do-it-yourself and more strikingly elegant. Think Woodstock meets urban refinement and don an artfully tie-dyed Binetti frock with fringed Paul & Joe sandals. For a disheveled-yet-sleek Euro-inspired look, pair a Karen Zambos mini dress with a Leigh & Luca scarf, or try Vena Cava's Stork Club Dress for an upscale take on hippie style. It's time to get to know the new bohemian chic. Find it right here, at shopbop.

A Flare for the Dramatic

Famous for its hip-slimming, leg-elongating properties, the flattering flare has attracted a devoted following since its arrival on the denim scene in the groovy '60s. Though often associated with a laid-back, guitar-strumming brand of cool, the flare's inherently dramatic silhouette also plays well with spring's fashion-forward trends.
Put an uptown spin on hippie chic by pairing a light wash flare (try Seven's Super Flare Jean) with a flowy floral top (we love this one from Nieves Lavi) and a sleek, peep-toe heel (like Robert Clergerie's Japons d'Orsay Pump) in an elegant neutral. Take the standard-isse tank-and-jeans into stylish new territory by teaming a dark wash flare (this pair from People's Liberation is a shopbop exclusive) with a boldly colored tank (like this brilliant one from Bop Basics). A bikini top (Rosa Cha's is gorgeous) peeking out adds a breezy sexiness, while a bright sandal (these are by Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti) pulls the playful-yet-sophisticated look together perfectly.
Break that all-black-for night habit. Style a color-saturated flare (we adore this retro-cool Dittos pair) with a slinky top in a standout print (this pretty peacock piece is by MLH) and a major heel for a look that's certain to set you apart from the fashion pack.

New Denim to Start the Season

It's the stuff we live in, the twilled cotton that makes up our jeans, and a day rarely passes that we don't slip on our favorite pair. This season, we adore the light wash, particularly Seven's bleached Sunset Jean, which gives a nod to the '80s while feeling so very now. The high waist is everywhere and always fabulous, and J Brand's Cass Jean paints the perfect picture of what we love about the leg-elongating look. If you want to take the classic route, we've got that too because new denim's here in every shade of blue. Find your favorite right now, at shopbop.
