The ‘Summer of Love’ was a moment in time in 1967 that defined an era of music, art, fashion and culture. What that counterculture generation would think of the wave of ‘hippy modernism’ seen on this season’s 2019 spring runways, we’re not sure.



Get the look: From the high-end to the high street, Ashlee Starratt helps you to get the look.

Trade tie-dye for twisted in this knotty cutwork top from Miss Selfridge that balances a boho feel with a punchy, citrusy shade that will make sure you don’t go unnoticed! Snag it for RO14.2.


Flaunt your flower power where everyone can see it with these face-framing abstract rose petals earrings from Zara that are the perfect reimagined accessory. Wear them for RO8.9.


Look breezy at the beach – or brunch – in this red print frill maxi-dress from River Island that will have you channeling your inner flower child! Grab it for RO25.4.


No 60s-inspired ensemble is complete without a set of bangles or love-beads. This multi-textured elemental cuff bracelet from M&S does the trick nicely. Get it for RO6.3.


Trade in your Birkenstocks for something a little chunkier yet no less earthy. We love this pair of square-heeled sandals with suede lacing from Call It Spring. Walk away with them for RO19.2.


Glide along with grace in a pair of high-waisted, wide-legged trousers that will make it seem like your feet aren’t even touching the floor. Trust us – these aren’t your mother’s bell-bottoms! Own them for RO149.14 from Ulla Johnson.


The ultimate earthy accessory, this beaded wood bag from MANGO is as about as close to nature as you’ll ever sling over your shoulder. Make it yours for RO30.7.
