GET FLOWER-GIRL STATUS WITH FREE PEOPLE
By Maybelle Morgan, 2 August 2017
It’s OK if Free People makes you want to quit your job and live the festival circuit 24/7. Same here. And who can blame us when there are 70s-style summer velvet, raw-edge denim and floral dresses at stake. So, here are the five best pieces from the boho brand's latest drop…
Consider your holiday suitcase complete now you have this Woodstock-vibes dress in your life. It’s a hot-weather winner with its ultra mini length, lace-up details and Santorini-esque colour palette. To avoid encroaching into nightie territory, clash up the pretty with skate sneaks and a canvas backpack.
Sleeve it or not
British Summer Time means that you’re probably more covered up than you’d like to be right now. But if the cover-up in question looks like something pulled out of Alexa Chung’s wardrobe, it’s probably not such a biggie. Balloon sleeves + embroidered panels + fleecy material = one light-but-cosy jacket to wear all season long.
Nothing quite says the 70s like embroidered denim, so naturally we’ve got big retro love for these light-washed jeans with floral detailing. Finish with a white, off-the-shoulder crop top and simple chunky sliders to keep all eyes on the jeans.
Your summer dress just got a much-needed 80s twist with this milkshake-pink floral number. It’s all in the sleeves, which come with subtle puffed detailing and a peekaboo slit down to the elbow. Match with preppy white trainers for a cutesy weekend look.
Yes, velvet works for summer. Who would have thought it? But to make it season-appropriate, trade in a jewel colour palette for pretty pastels. These backless rose loafers have nailed it – just add a ditsy floral midi dress for max pretty points.
