The New Gypsy
My early teen summers were spent happily surfing the waves of late nineties/early noughties boho (back when the term "gypsy style" conjured up images of quaint folk-style embroidery and delicate gathered ruffles, rather than 16-tier fairylit loo-roll-covers) so it was with delighted nostalgia that I greeted this season's resurrection of the gypsy top, with its ingenious clean-cut off-the-shoulder uber-frill. Sheer floaty fabric makes this Boohoo version feel even more romantic and dance-around-the-campfire-y (an activity I wouldn't necessarily endorse in a skirt like this, though).
