Spring 09 has a new trend in store for us, which I am calling “Fashion Globetrotter.” This trend has nothing to do with an acrobatic basketball team, it’s more about a “new” boho look. The”old” boho look that we know and love has been around for years now. We have seen it on “it” girls like Nicole Riche, Mischa Barton, and our favorite boho girl – Mary-Kate. That look was more “hippie” than “well traveled.”
The “new boho” or “Fashion Globetrotter” look (as I call it) is more worldly. These are clothes and accessories that tell a story. An easygoing boho look with pieces that look like you picked them up on some amazing vacation.
One way to get the look is to go with a garment that has a graphic ethnic piece. This piece will serve as a sure bet for the trend and will take little to no effort to pull off. Just pull your hair back and toss on some gladiator sandals and you are ready to go.
Another way to score the look is to go the trendy celebrity route. Take a pair of baggy ripped up jeans (Current/ Elliot) and roll them up and put on your favorite pair of chunky high heeled shoes, I prefer Chloe. Go with a simple black tank on top, teamed up with an open safari jacket and gold snake accessories and you will rocking the “globetrotter” look like a true A-lister.
