I love the flowing, eclectic, colorful and embellished outfits put together in the gypsy style. It’s free-spirited! You can dress for your true self, and age doesn’t matter. I often see artistic women of a certain age in multi-color, sweeping skirts with loads of jewelry.
Today’s Gypsy style is like to a global, bohemian style; thus, the offshoot of Gypset — a style adopted by jet-setters who travel the globe. The modern Gypsy style is an exotic combination of tribal, art deco, hippie, ethnic, gothic, and of course vintage.
How to dress like a gypsy:
- Colors — wine, camel, brown, gold, olive.
- Jewelry — ethnic, stacked bangles (5-6 thin ones or 1-2 thick ones per arm), big rings (turquoise, amber, rose quartz, jasper), a toe ring, chandelier earrings or gold hoops.
- Scarves — paisley, or a solid if wearing a busy blouse; around neck or around head or as a belt (or a leather belt with a giant elaborate buckle).
- Boots — clean-cut designs or Uggs.
- Jeans — boot-cuts.
- Velvet — i.e., a top or skirt or pants or dress.
- Peasant tops or tunics — including paisley
Some outfit ideas:
- Try a crushed velvet or soft (such as chiffon) dresses with a shawl, a fedora, and heavy jewelry contrasted with ripped jeans, shaggy knitwear and fur. You may want to add chunky wedges and a tiered chiffon slip.
- A billowy blouse inside a full, colorful, long skirt + a vest. Add beads, a necklace, a scarf or scarves as a belt. Or — add a sarong over the skirt. Or — add pants under the skirt.
