The Lowdown: What used to be boho (ala Mary Kate Olsen, circa 2007) has recently emerged as “hipster” — and while we understand that this renaming of trends allows for maximum recycling of looks in the fashion and retail industry, we also understand that we are hopelessly full-on suckas for said trends. We do insist, however, that there’s a way to make it modern and do it on the cheap. So what’s so new about this boho/hipster/retro bohemian, etc. etc. trend? There’s a luxe factor this time around, and to that we say: we’re in.
The key to the 2010 boho hipster look is in the details — modern cuts (more fitted, less muu-muu and crochet plant-hanger) and colorful jeweled accessories. And to avoid the danger of taking a trend across the line to full-on fashion disaster, don’t wear all your boho-inspired pieces together; pick one or two and pair with simple basics to be chic, not cheesy.
