The gypsy inspired fashion trends reflect that freeness, and it’s a breath of fresh air outside of our normal Corporate America attire. Spring always brings a short round of gypsy/hippie inspired pieces however this time they had more staying power; showing up in Fall/Winter shows of Emilio Pucci and Dolce and Gabbana, showing our want and need for change; stepping outside the boundaries.  The “gypsy look” boasts layers of delicate flower prints, panels of lace, velvet and tapestry…

Gypsies: they’re mysterious, you never know quite were to find them, and they live outside the norm. The gypsy inspired fashion trends reflect that freeness, and it’s a breath of fresh air outside of our normal Corporate America attire. Spring always brings a short round of gypsy/hippie inspired pieces however this time they had more staying power; showing up in Fall/Winter shows of Emilio Pucci and Dolce and Gabbana, showing our want and need for change; stepping outside the boundaries. 

The “gypsy look” boasts layers of delicate flower prints, panels of lace, velvet and tapestry patterns accompanied with mismatched pieces of jewelry. As with any strong trend, you don’t have to dress head to toe in it. By adding a few inspired pieces to your every day wardrobe could be just the pick me up you were looking for. Try out this adorable genuine suede fringe bag from Forever 21 for $50.

One of my favorite ways to just give a glint of the look is to layer bangles up one arm, or put on a few necklaces of different lengths. You can find many affordable pieces as Forever 21 and H&M.

A brand that stays true to it’s bohemian roots (and to save you from searching the mall for this trend), Free People is the perfect place to look for inspired pieces to add to your wardrobe. You can find Free People at Macy’s, and Faye’s boutique. It just makes you want to dance around a fire doesn’t it!!

Bye fashion junkies!
