Gypsy clothing has never ceased to surprise the fashion makers. An inspiration to this industry, gypsy style is an exciting amalgamation of vintage jewellery, flowy skirt/dress and body fitting tops.
Gypsy clothing is very intense with lace, boning, appliques, beading, metals and layers. It is important to get it right if you wish to adorn this style since it can get overbearing sometimes, hence we help you select some patent gypsy style running the circuit so you are good to go.
Firstly gypsy style is about skirts, long skirts which are flowy, printed, tiered or handkerchief style. You can team up a long printed tiered skirt with a plain tank top and a tan belt to give that edgy look. Or if you wish to go plain on the skirt then you can team up an alluring off-shoulder top just like Catherine Zeta Jones.
If you wish to show your toned legs then you can team the modern gypsy handkerchief style skirt with a top and a jacket like Kate Moss.
If skirt is not your thing as much as a denim is then there are various gypsy inspired tops in form of criss-cross tie-up corset, crochet bikini top, shoulder revealing top that you can team with your favorite pair of jeans for a fun summer day out. Take your inspiration from the likes of Vanessa Hudgens, Miranda Kerr and Kareena Kapoor.
Another style to steal from their clothing tradition is ‘gypsy pants’. Gypsy pants are loosely fitted art of style which is supremely comfortable and incredibly stylish. Ideally in cotton or chiffon these pants can be plain or you can add embellishment around the waist to accentuate them.
These pants can be worn in full length, calf length or ankle length.
Yet another gypsy style doing the rounds is the gypsy dresses. These maxi length dresses are flowy, soft and revealing. Usually worn in tube style or deeper necklines or off shoulder, you can toss a shrug, scarf or a jacket if you don’t want to show too much skin.
Celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Leighton Meester and Alessandra Ambrósio have carried off this pattern piece very beautifully.
Since history reveals that gypsies were originally from the Indian subcontinent before they scattered around the euro regions, Indian designers too have not missed an opportunity to get inspired from this style with a touch of their own sensibilities.
Indian ace designers like Malini Ramani and Asmita Marwa have rocked the ramp with conventional gypsy clothing adding a tinge of indo western appeal to it.
Lastly gypsy style is incomplete without the accessories especially the head accessories.
They consist of heavy beads, metals, chains, bandana, hats and feathers. If you do not wish to wear any of the above clothing and still wish to look gypsy then all you need to do is wear a colorful bandana and heavy chunky gypsy jewellery and you are sorted.
