Like the many other Noughties trends making a return—hello cargo pants and shield sunglasses— Boho is being dug out of the archive. World, meet Boho 2.0. Simone Ashley, recently seen in a Conner Ives handkerchief top and matching headscarf, is a prime example, as is Olivia Wilde in a floral maxi dress and furry overcoat. Bella Hadid also never disappoints when it comes to reviving past trends, wearing a pleated nano-mini, ruched tank top, perspex heel mules and a vintage Prada bag.
The runways were awash with blasts from the past, too. At Alberta Ferretti, there were macramé dresses fizzling out in fringes, and at Altuzarra, supermodel Gigi Hadid was clad in head-to-toe tie-dye. Meanwhile, at Chloé, braiding and seashells made Boho hearts beat faster.
Jewelry is also getting in on the action. According to Daniel Christopher Jewelry, searches for anklets, scarf earrings and toe rings (yes, really), are all up by 49% over the last three months.
But, before you shudder in fear recalling all the, ahem, randomly assembled outfits and barely-there Daisy Dukes, know that, unlike the first time around, this revival comes highly polished. Blame it on social media and the extensive library of celebrity references, but the majority of revival trends require less experimentation (thank you, Sienna, for doing the legwork) but follow the OG, Y2K guidelines. So, if you’re eyeing up your Minnetonka boots in the loft, now’s the time to pull them back on. Add a mood ring and leather jacket and you’re good to go. Glasto, anyone?
