Bohemian, an ode to the Ibiza Vibe
Crochet: the summer 2023 trend
This summer, the bohemian chic trend is making a comeback and plunging us into the enchanting world of Ibiza, the Mediterranean island famous for its breathtaking landscapes, wild nights, and bohemian atmosphere; a true source of inspiration for fashionistas. While “the white island” is known for its 24-hour partying, another distinctive characteristic also comes to mind: Bohemian fashion. Spotlight on the boho vibe.
The essence of bohemian chic
The Bohemian chic, or “boho”, style embodies the free, laid-back, and romantic spirit of bohemian fashion with the addition of a sophisticated, modern edge. This trend comes direct from Ibiza and its adlib fashion. As you may have already realised, the Bohemian Chic trend is coming back into the spotlight, and if you want to adopt one of its key pieces, which is crochet, all you have to do is mix timeless pieces with ethnic elements and extravagant details. Crochet brings a light and romantic touch to your outfits, while transporting you to the fine sandy beaches and dazzling sunsets of Ibiza. Choose crochet dresses or airy blouses and let yourself be carried away by a wave of relaxation and romance. We are really fond of neutral tones such as beige or white, which are the colours, par excellence, of crochet.
This technique is available on everything: clothes, shoes, bags, jerseys, and other accessories. With its different openwork patterns, vary the styles for original summer outfits that reflect your personal style.
Our advice for a bohemian chic look
To fully embrace Ibiza's bohemian chic style, here are a few ideas for stunning looks this summer:
- Airy White Dress: Slip into a slightly sheer white or ecru crochet dress with flared sleeves and a delicate neckline. Whether long or short, you’ll be bang on trend! Pair it with crochet sandals and fun accessories like colourful necklaces or pom-pom bracelets. Let your imagination run wild and add a touch of fantasy to your outfit.
- Bohemian two-piece set: opt for a coordinated crochet set including shorts and a matching shirt. Feel free to combine materials: crochet and linen go together perfectly! Complete the look with platform espadrilles and funky sunglasses for a stunning hippie-chic effect on the island of a thousand faces.
- Crochet top and trousers: to really show off crochet in all its glory, play around with materials and combine your centrepiece with other fabrics such as linen, which, in addition to being a timeless summer item, is currently getting a lot of attention with the “Tomato Girl” trend, all the rage on TikTok. Linen trousers (always wide for a chicer look), shorts, or a skirt, your crochet top will go with everything! Complete your outfit with multi-strap heeled sandals or sandals with cork soles.
- Kimono and swimsuit: Whether you’re on the beach or by the pool, wear your best swimsuit by pairing it with an all-crochet kimono; the ultimate holiday trend. We also love the crochet swimsuits, sure to give you a cool look at the beach.
Boho chic accessories, the finishing touch
Crochet accessories are essential to perfect your trendy, summer bohemian chic look.
Be bang on trend by wearing crochet mules. Their aesthetics and practical side (they are ideal for days at the beach) will certainly win you over. For a slightly more sophisticated look, opt for gold strappy sandals. Metallic tones pair perfectly with neutral crochet tones.
For bags, two materials are available to you: you can opt for a shoulder or crochet shopping bag, but make sure you choose original details such as flower-patterned hooks, pompoms, tassels, or simply colours. Another option, yet by no means lesser in style: raffia. A summer essential, whether for the beach, romantic dinners (in small format), or to do a little shopping, choose a wicker or raffia bag. Practical in every sense of the word, this piece will enhance your outfit for sure.
The sun is out and to protect yourself from its rays while remaining stylish, wear crochet hats with wide brims, bucket style! In beige or flashy colours, this accessory will bring, depending on its shade, a touch of Ibizan elegance or cool attitud to your look. Let your personality shine and add a quirky, even funky touch to your summer look.
And what would an outfit be without jewellery? To remain true to the trend and add an artisanal dimension to your look, crochet jewellery is a must. Unique and fun pieces like earrings, bracelets with wooden beads and crochet, as well as imposing necklaces, are ideal. Crochet jewellery is perfect for adding a quirky, yet elegant touch to your style.
By adopting the bohemian chic trend, you connect to the very essence of Ibiza and its enchanting atmosphere. Summer is the perfect opportunity to dive into the world of the white island and its fashion inspirations; perfect for creating casual, romantic, and resolutely crazy looks. Immerse yourself in the bohemian chic trend and let the magic of Ibiza seduce you!
