Winter has, at least for a brief and wondrous spell, released us from it cold, iron grasp. Crocuses and daffodils have begun to tentatively pop their little translucent heads out of the thawing ground. The breeze is warmer and more generous, the very quality of the light shining down between the still-bare branches is full of hope.
This is the time of year to unwind winter scarves from pale necks, peel off layer after layer of sweaters. We unzip and unbutton until we can delight in the freedom of unencumbered movement. There is no time like the present to embrace the Bohemian trend that is taking over this Spring.
How to Wear Bohemian Fashion
As the weather continues to warm we will be seeing a rise in Bohemian influences in fashion from the runways to the sidewalks. Airy garments with plenty of movement, embellished with embroidered details will be popping up with the same speed and vigor as the tulips in the coming months.
We recommend pairing the floaty blouses and tunics associated with this 2015 trend with skinny jeans. This creates a pleasing contrast of different volumes within the outfit.
A Minx will be wise to remember to delight in the play of volume while planning her outfits. Volume is just one element of how we chose our clothes. Some Minxes like only loose, flowing clothes, while others prefer tight, streamlined garments. We challenge you to pinpoint your comfort level of volume. It may inspire a fun and welcome change for your spring outfits yet to come.

Cute Spring Outfits: Don’t Forget the Shoes!
It is easy to automatically think of sandals when thinking of the Bohemian aesthetic. The hippies of the 1960’s and ‘70’s, the women of Gustav Klimt’s paintings, and classical Greek sculptures all influence the look and what is has come to mean to Minxes the world over. Like all Minxes that came before us we must stand up and embrace this enduring style as our own. We must mold the style to fit our time, allow the look to be worn and not to wear us.
Nicola Ankle Strap Sandals in Lemon-Lime, Chelsea Crew
This brilliant citrus heel by Chelsea Crew is the statement shoe to compliment the 2015 version of the Bohemian look. (Look familiar? We’re already getting tons of wear out of these! See how else we’ve styled them here!)
Embellishment:Less and More
Just as we are seeing a subtlety coming back into jewelry trends for this year, so are we seeing a soaring amount of embroidered embellishment on blouses, dresses and tunics. It’s as if the garment itself is taking on the role of accessory and giving the accessories free license to exude understated class.
