With our Summer days now numbered, Nicky Hilton's taking advantage of the heat. We spotted the designer out in West Hollywood sporting a breezy, sheer little dress in a subtle allover tie-dye print. To amp up the boho vibe, she added in turquoise accessories, then just a touch of everyday glam on her gold, embossed tote and jeweled sandals. Looking for the same kind of beachy-chic cool?

Gypsy, wanderer, nomad, bohemian — call her what you will, but she is the ultimate free spirit. If you want a liberating costume this Halloween, look no further than the exotic gypsy. Much like the cirque du freak, the gypsy requires piling it all on. The main fashion components are coin jewelry, bangles, anklets, floor-sweeping skirts, paisley prints, head scarves, velvet, and layers — see Star from The Lost Boys for a vampy version. A wavy ebony wig can also help with authenticity. Roam away . . .
Whether or not you agree with the gypsy lifestyle, you can't deny their sense of style is effortlessly unique. Their nomadic ways, after all, hinder them from being matchy matchy. Spunky knows what I mean. And so does Fergie, who wore Gucci's folk-inspired Fall '08 ensemble on the red carpet.
Paisley prints, brown suede, intense colors, peasant blouses — they're all meant to conjure up your inner bohemian. Spunky has laid it all out for us below. Thanks!
Bohemian girl Frederique Trou-Roy was between jobs, so she decided to wander around Morocco (good choice!). While there, she scoured the street workshops, hunted for old scarves, and had the local craftsmen make leather shopping bags with metal detailing and sequin-embroidered wicker baskets for her. From the escapade, her Parisian label Manoush was born, a melange of gypsy influences and wearable clothes.
