This summer, dive into folkloric and bohemian fashion with florals, tassels, embroidery, prints, and all the colors you can think of! From cheerful embroidered blouses to printed kimono-style robes, look toward traditional and vintage styles for instant inspiration.
Vyshyvanka: Born in Ukraine, the vyshyvanka (a pastoral frock or blouse featuring colorful embroidery) has been the country’s traditional dress for centuries. Here’s how the story goes: the embroidery was used as a talisman to ward off evil spirits, and was strategically placed on garments at vulnerable spots: along the neckline, shoulders and wrists. Long worn and loved in Eastern Europe, the style became a global phenomenon when donned by street style stars like Anna Dello Russo and Leandra Medine.
White floral caftans: In the style of traditional Mexican wedding dresses, these white linen pieces come bursting with joie de vivre courtesy embroidery in vibrant hues like fuchsia, turquoise and orange. Taking its cues from the country’s traditional huipil dress, elements like lace, floral motifs, tassels and pom-poms add to the festive cheer.
Kimono robe: Channel the boho insouciance of ‘70s starlets with this fluid silhouette. Worn short, long, open, belted, oversized or fitted, the dressing gown-esque kimono lends itself to a host of styling options. Wear it as a cover-up at the beach or use it to dress up your casual jeans-and-tee look.
