Spring fashion 2012: The new bohemian

JAHNA PELOQUIN and PHOTOS BY CARLOS GONZALEZ | Updated 8/17/2012

Spring fashion spotlights colorful boho chic with a neo-grungy edge.


For Vita.mn's spring fashion spread, we headed to Angry Catfish Bicycle and Coffee Bar in south Minneapolis to capture spring's colorful, layered looks. Taking a cue from the bohemian styles of the '70s and the grunge edge of the '90s, we piled on plenty of layering necessities -- cardigans, scarves, tights, knit hats -- to keep you chicly shielded from the elements. To keep things fresh, you can mix in the season's tropical florals and bright, graphic prints with subtle tones and rich textures, for a look that's as bold and eclectic as it is laid-back and practical.
