Gypsy Chic Returns!
No No, Don't Think of the huge floaty skirts we wore those years back. Think Handmade Embellishments, Deep Colours, Floral, Flared Denim, Velvets, Polka Dotting and Patchwork Fabrics… Sounds hard to get the style right but it's a clever combination of rooting through the wardrobe and mixing with new vintage accessories.
So Grab your flares out your ‘I don't wear this anymore drawer' and combine with the Velvet Jacket and your on track. Part of the fun of this trend is to succumb to the vast array of colourful jewellery that makes buttons and flowers acceptable to wear around your neck this season.
It also means we can keep all the floral and denim we have over-collected from the summer! Just layer it all up, heavy boots and grab the few items to complete the Gypsy look.
Topshop and Monsoon Accessorize have the best choice available to update your summer wardrobe to a vintage autumn style, so be sure to check these out, especially Kate Moss' new collection.
