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 outlets...

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. The embroidery and fringe detailing on shirts by Ba&sh will help give your look that elegant yet playful authenticity. Alternatively think big with flowing maxi/midi dressed by Isabel Marant. Skip bright colours and instead look to accessorise with gold accents in belts, jewellery and bags.



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 Ba&sh and The Kooples are a beautiful play on volume and moody tones, while Sandro 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.
