As we advance into the new year and start considering our wardrobe for spring, now is the time to revisit what proved to be the dominating trend on the Spring/Summer 2016 runways. We’re talking about New Bohemia, a trend that spanned from New York and London to Paris and Milan two seasons running.

If you want to know what you’ll need for the forthcoming season, look no further than Savoir Flair’s guide to the essentials of building a bohemian closet. Whether you mix and match these pieces with your existing wardrobe or start stacking them together in a head-to-toe look, there is really no way to do this trend wrong. It’s time for New Bohemia and its embrace of maximal, detail-oriented style to sweep you off your feet. Click through the gallery for easy ways to fashionably prep for the spring season.

1

A Peasant Blouse

Peasant blouses are an essential in any bohemian’s closet. To really nail the trend, try one in a gauzy material, a paisley print, or with added tassels.

2

An Embellished Gilet

In the 1960s, the bohemian kids from the Western world went East in search of spiritual enlightenment. After touring through India and China, many of them returned with the embroidered gilet. This exotic statement piece is all you need to add bohemian spice to your look.

3

A Fringed Jacket

This multi-purpose piece will do wonders for your wardrobe. A fringed jacket adds a bohemian attitude to any look and really works well with denim, slip dresses, peasant blouses (a great way to double up on the trend), and more.

4

A Maxi Skirt

Maxi skirts are a great way to rock the bohemian look when the summer months start heating up. Although they’re modest in proportion, they’re delightfully lightweight and allow your limbs to breathe when the temperatures start to climb again.

5

Flared Pants

A new way to rock the flared pants look is to experiment with a different material. Nothing says 70s like corduroy, so try a pair of corduroy flared pants and you’ll be well ahead of the style curve this season.

6

A Printed Maxi Dress

Printed, sheer maxi dresses are a great way to add feminine flourish to your look, and embellished versions push the style envelope even further.
