It’s time for our monthly dose of boho chic inspiration and the Free People April 2012 catalog is the perfect alternative for exploring. The April 2012 looks have a special perk aside from the fab combos the brand has gotten us used to: it features a multitude of festival outfit ideas. With only a little time left until the big event, creative options are intensely desired. The latest catalog features a handful of simple yet ultra chic options that can easily give you the creative edge you look for.

Versatility is a key concept that is beautifully explored throughout the catalog. Though the initial perspective is that of a creative look with a carefree approach, at a more careful look we can immediately notice the multitude of mixing and matching possibilities the pieces offer. Tribal influences add a colorful punch to the looks while accessories attempt to bring that wild yet ultra chic allure that we all secretly crave but never quite dare to embrace.

Bold tribal vibes combined with a bold color seem to be a perfect match but texture also plays an important part in defining the looks. Crotchet knits are a fabulous example of textural touches that can add a distinct touch without necessarily having a bold pattern or a daring tone. Aside from the old faithful denim staple which proves once again its usefulness, a multitude of mid length dresses can be the perfect alternative for those craving a feminine touch. Simple and light-colored, such dresses are the perfect alternative for embracing the rising temperatures.

Though accessories belong mostly to the discreet side, they are an important part of the outfits as they are the ones that actually give us that distinctive allure and that sense of completion. Gold and silver metallic finishes along with sharp geometric pendants or layered bracelets are some of the most noticeable such examples. As for footwear choices, comfort and simplicity are the most desirable characteristics in the current collection.
