We’re all largely familiar with both bohemian and French-girl style. While one is characterized by gauzy, flowy pieces reminiscent of a free-spirited nomad, the other is defined by effortless and unfussy ensembles. With arrival of summer and vacation vibes that come with it, there are a slew of floaty silhouettes and embroidered designs that radiate boho vibes. However, the current crop is more elevated and polished, steering away from gypsy-like prints and piles of figure-drowning layers—a result that seemingly combines the two emulated styles. Ahead, three fresh ways to wear the boho trend and tips on how to don it like a French girl.
