Feeling Folksy

HELLO!  I’m back, I had a week off, those of you who follow me on Instagram (@notjustadress) will know I went to France, which was lovely and relaxing but now I’m back and feeling refreshed – let’s hope the feeling lasts!

Today I’m looking at all things fashion that are folk inspired. You may or may not know that this folksy vibe has bubbling under the fashion surface for a few seasons now, mainly due to the high end Ukrainian designer Vita Kin. The brand has captured the eye of the fashion elite, Anna Dello Russo can often be spotted in their beautiful dresses, but I’m not joking when I say you need very deep pockets to buy the real thing – we’re talking blouses starting at £900.

Luckily this trend has started to filter down to the high street and couldn’t be more perfect for the summer festival season ahead.  It’s slightly different from you usual boho look with big bold embroidery and over sized tassel detailing, but if it is a little OTT for you there are plenty of other ways to inject that folksy feeling into your wardrobe – take a look below.

So with all that inspo in mind let’s look to the mid level and high street brands to see what they have to offer, other than being much friendly on your wallet there are some incredible lookie-likies out there thanks to Free People, Wonder & Weaver and even H&M.

So if this gets you feeling all folksy let me know, I’d love to see your looks or purchases.
