Missoni = Summer of Love

Summer here in LA certainly has been a crazy one. One minute it's scorching and the next it's cool and windy. But no matter what the weather is I can't deny how much I love the summer. And there is one Italian fashion house that practically screams summer of love. Missoni has been pumping out crochet zig zag knits for almost 60 years. And while their brand has far surpassed clothing (They now have added hotels to their list of accomplishments!) they know cranking out gorgeous clothes is always the way to a boho-chic girl's heart. I can't exactly afford the beautiful pieces (yet) but that still hasn't stopped me from enjoying the designs everytime I see them. Let's take a look at some celebrities who have been loving Missoni during these summer months....

One of my personal style icons, Nicole Richie, is the very definition of boho chic. She's always wearing prints, fringe, flowy sleeves and kimono. I love it. And this Missoni maxi is no exception. Although I love Nicole as a blond - her dark hair and the cool blues and nudes in the dress compliment each other so well. Check out that tangerine cocktail ring - gorg! And of course I am loving her headwear from her amazing jewelry line House of Harlow. This is easy simple dressing - Missoni at it's finest.

Vanessa Hudgens has the boho-glam thing down pat. Here her shortened Missoni dress is youthful and fun while at an event in Malibu a few weeks ago. I love the blush and nude prints together - a major trend right now. The shape of Missoni waves are thicker and metallic. Feathered necklaces and beach waves are fantastic accessories for this outfit.


When your mom is Goldie Hawn is pretty safe to say that you will be a free spirit. And I think at one point or another every girl had said they would love to be Kate Hudson. It's hard not to with her massive mop of blond curls and million dollar smile. She's every bit of her mother especially in the fashion department. Here Kate was filming scenes for her new movie in a mini-print Missoni caftan. I love how the fashion house can have all different kinds of prints - yet at the end of the day - you know it's a Missoni. Paired with her natural curls, bright headband and dark sunnies - she looks like the epitome of summer.


If you're the luckiest girl in the world - like Margherita Missoni - you have a never ending supply of zig zag designs, crochet tops and gorgeous maxi dresses. And anytime she dons something from her family's label its amazing how effortlessly chic she looks. Whether she's wearing a body-con dress or flowing skirt her inner (and outer!) hippie proves that she really is a Missoni love child. I love that Margherita's personal style shines through even though she's supporting her family's fashion house. Adding accessories like tribal inspired necklaces in the second look or her braided headband in the third look add extra bits of glam to the already gorgeous clothing.
