When you think festival fashion the first thing that usually comes to mind in bohemian pants and flower crowns. For summer 2018, bohemian style is transcending the typical into a whole new world of fashion. This year’s boho is all about the dramatic bell sleeve, quirky buttons and intricate embroidery.
