As the trends change each season, there are some fashion favourites that never really seem to go away - and the focus at the moment is firmly on Boho style dresses. Fun, feminine and easy to wear, this 70s-inspired style never truly dates, and the best bit? Almost every woman already has at least one of the styles hidden in her wardrobe...
Seen on the A/W16 catwalks thanks to the likes of Diane von Furstenberg, Etro and Burberry, this wearable style won't be going away any time soon. As we prepare to move into a new season and embrace the autumn trends, this trans-seasonal style will work with everything from summer sandals to autumn boots. Time to dig into the depths of your wardrobe to find that realiable floaty dress again...
So, how do you style the trend? It all depends on your personal preference, as demonstrated above. Kate Moss is the Queen of rock'n'Roll Boho style - but she's not the only Kate who's proved herself to be a fan of the style of late. The Duchess of Cambridge was also spotted wearing a Topshop dress earlier this year during her Royal Tour of India. Both styled theirs very differently: Kate opted for a bright pattern, sheer fabric and velvet accessories, while Catherine kept it demure with a hair bun and simple wedge heels.
Need some inspiration? We've picked out some of the best styles to shop now, just in case you're tempted to add one more of fashion's favourite dress to your collection...
