THE TREND THAT NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE
Fashion, like history, has a way of repeating itself. The chunky sneakers and “mom jeans” that were out of style last year are all the hype today. But even through all the cyclical changes of fashion trends, there is one style that only seems to grow more popular with age, the beloved bohemian.
While its origins are still up for debate, some even date it back to the French Revolution, the floral prints, maxi dresses and embroidered accessories that we most associate with the style come from its resurgence in the 60s and 70s. Today, the boho style has continued to evolve. We still see the motifs and details of the Woodstock era, but with a fun, modern twist. We asked a few of Park City’s fashion-forward boutiques to weigh in on the freshest bohemian styles. Each one gave us their favorite boho-inspired piece hand-selected from their summer collections. Spoiler alert—they are all divine.
Chelsea Gardens Kimono by Johnny Was
Bohemian meets modern flair in the one-of-a-kind Chelsea Gardens Kimono from designer Johnny Was. Its floral patterns and leopard print pair to create an eye-catching design that can be dressed up or down to fit your mood. Style with flared jeans and a boho blouse for a drink with friends or over a fitted dress for a night downtown.
Flaunting a flattering tiered construction, impeccable stitchwork and premium silk fabrics, this button-down kimono creates a sense of movement and effortlessness. This kimono is just one of the beautiful pieces you’ll find in Cole Sport’s summer collection, chosen for its electric colors, bohemian aesthetic, premium artistry and long-lasting materials.

L.A. DRESDEN’S BOUTIQUE
Sitting Bull Moccasins by Magnolia Pearl
One of our favorite trends in the new wave of bohemian fashion are hand-crafted, statement shoes. And if we are talking about the latest style in shoes we have to look to Midway’s L.A. Dresden’s Boutique. Owner Leigh Ann Dresden is known for curating a stunning collection of unique, artisanal clothing and shoes for all styles. This summer you will find a variety of bohemian pieces like leather Sitting Bull Moccasins from designer Magnolia Pearl Clothing.
Drawing from the origins of the flower-child trend of the 60s, Magnolia Pearl Clothing builds on the classic moccasin staple by adding modern details like intricate floral bead-work and customizable ankle-straps. Each pair is then distinctly crafted with natural fabrics and beautifully hand-beaded designs creating a final product that is truly one of its kind. Once you put them on you’ll have a hard time wearing any other shoe—they’re that comfortable. Plus they look great with just about any look, so it won’t take much to justify never taking them off.
