The editors at Glamour Magazine were so influenced by the free-spirited trends of the spring / summer runway collections that they invited the ultimate flower of hippie chic — Rachel Zoe— to style their recent You Gotta Go Boho editorial. The shoot features models Hind Sahli and Melissa Johannsen and showcases “perfect examples of wearable chic.” Zoe paired several designers, like Emilio Pucchi, Tom Ford, Dries Van Noten, and Hermes to get the best combination of textures and colors. She also mixed flowing feminine dresses with macho outerwear to add some boy-girl tension to the piece. To see what you need to achieve this editorial look, click through to style notes.
