Modern Boho: Best Leather, Fringing and Suede on the High Street

Check, suede, fringe and everything '70s are coming atcha like Cleopatra this season. The decade of flares and chevron stripes is back and is here to stay for at least the next two seasons, so anything that you buy for summer should be able to transition for autumn with a little clever styling.

For those not suede (see what I did there) by the array of terracotta, brown and mustard hitting the high-street, fear not for I have sought out some nice 'n' neutral pieces from the high street.

With festival-inspired pieces and chic streamlined styles in mind, you can be on boho trend without feeling like an outdated extra on ‘That ‘70s Show’.

And two of my favourite classics are suede and denim skirts with either an a-line or pelmet hem.

Pencil skirts in the same fabrics also look set to be a staple in every fashionista's work wardrobe. And you can change things up colour wise from the same old staid black and navy by injecting a bit of colour; think forest green, light grey and burgundy as autumn alternatives.

Sticking with the suede, why not try a suede biker jacket or co-ords, à la Kylie Jenner?

Another trend to watch out for this season is the reoccurrence of black leather, fringed skirts, (Xena warrior princess anyone?) and halter neck tops.

Other items worth keeping an eye out for are button down denim skirts and flared trousers. When it comes to the latter, think palazzo but with heavier fabrics and platform heels to give you height (and to keep those figure flattering flares off the floor and in pristine condition).

Sure, rocking up in a black leather fringed skirt isn’t for everyone so if wearing full-on statement pieces feels more Joan Jett than Joni Mitchell, why not try complementing your look with a fringed bag? It's the embodiment of cool, ‘70s bohemian vibes.

Whether you’re more of a Diane Keaton or Stevie Nicks, the high street promises to be a  fringe festival this season.

Are you a fan of fringing or do you think it should remain in its tent after festival season? Have you picked up any '70s pieces that make you want to unleash your inner bohemian?
