The right accessories can turn a minimal look into something spectacular and rich. Like Zoé you may start with a pair of red suede pumps that can spice up your casual outfit of a button-down shirt and jeans. You may also try a big audacious bohemian necklace over layered sheers or a simple frock. Embellished clutch, printed scarf, fringed bag, tasseled earrings, and fedora hat can make your basic outfit festive, though you may go wild with tribal necklaces and bohemian cuffs.

Go for bohemian-inspired patterns and loud prints.

Tribal prints, Ikat patterns, Aztec prints, graphic print, retro floral patterns and such can be great to add some festive flair to your outfits. Like Zoé, think of a print that will showcase your personality to look more confident on your street style. If you’re not a fan of bohemian style, go for loud prints like rainbow stripes, novelty patterns, quirky prints and such that can add some flair to your looks without looking like a gypsy. If you’re a fan of bold colors, you could never go wrong with red accents, which is known for its festive flair since the color is usually worn in the holidays.

Don’t be afraid to live out your bohemian fantasies with your outfits.

If you’ve always dreamed of living in the wilderness and wearing clothing that emits that same free-spirited sense of summer bliss, channel your bohemian vibe by going for gypsy ensembles. Like Zoé, you may opt for tribal print trousers, free-flowing dresses, eyelet tops, peasant dresses, suede skirts, button front skirts, bell sleeved tops and such to channel a carefree and festive look on the streets.

Make your music festival outfits more urban.

When we think about music festival style, kimono, denim cut-offs, flower headbands, denim jackets, fringe vests, bohemian frocks, plaid shirts, strappy tank tops, and fedoras automatically come to our mind. Coachella has long dominated the free-spirited bohemian look, but other festivals that can have the carefree look without looking like a gypsy. Like Zoé, bend the rules of “festival fashion” by incorporating your basic pieces with bohemian ones, or simply making your festival look more urban. Just rethink some key pieces you should consider packing when it’s time to hit the road for the forthcoming music-imbibing months.

By heeding these tricks from Zoé, you’ll be able to create festive looks in the summer regardless of your personal style.
