SS20 Trends | Refined Ethnic


The Essential Edit

The hippie vibe has grown up this season as brands give the bohemian aesthetic a warm sultry twist, so turn on, tune in, and check it out at McArthurGlen Luxembourg...

If you thought the boho look was only good for festivals, then think again. Designers from Amiri to Saint Laurent have tapped into a more elevated ethnic influence where earthy paisley and floral patterns decorate sheer tunics and maxi dresses, all embellished with embroidery, fringe detailing and bold gold accessories.

Shirts & Tunics

The aforementioned paisley and floral patterns in a sultry colour palette are a must to wear with jeans, so look out for tunics by IKKS and Only. The embroidery and fringe detailing on shirts will help give your look that elegant yet playful authenticity. Alternatively think big with flowing maxi/midi dressed. Skip bright colours and instead look to accessorise with gold accents in belts, jewellery and bags.

Dresses
If the runways of Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen were anything to go by, the boho girl of yesteryear has graduated this season into a more sophisticated version of herself. Flowing maxi/midi dresses by The Kooples and Zadig & Voltaire are a beautiful play on volume and moody tones, while other brands have used sheer fabrics to create a lightness to offset all that volume. Cinch the waist with a statement belt and let your jewellery do the talking when it comes to finishing details.
