Boho or bohemian fashion has been given a revival over the past few years being favoured by a whole host of celebrities including Sienna Miller, the Olsen Twins, Josh Stone, Kate Hudson and Emma Watson amongst others and continues to be popular across all the fashion seasons. Harking back to a by gone era and reinvented as a must have festival fashion style, the boho fashion look is a must for not only the festival goer but also for fashion lovers who adore feminine fabrics and bold pattern prints.
Boho fashion is a fabulous frugal fashionista style, completely on trend and when you’re on a budget, boho styled outfits can easily be put together from a mix and match of existing pieces within your wardrobe to create a more individual look without breaking the bank. Bohemian clothing is traditionally floaty and brings together several pieces and accessories for example a printed floaty maxi dress complimented by wooden jewellery and a summer wide-brimmed floppy hat is a gorgeous summer outfit. Think mixed up shades, colours and textures to get a feel for the richness a boho outfit can achieve and give you an outfit that is relaxed and comfy enough for your every day activities.
What’s exciting about creating boho outfits is that you can mix and match your accessories to compliment the clothes – the hobo style handbag and chunky wooden jewellery. Take it one step further and match your boho fashions looks with a bohemian lifestyle and engage in yoga and pilates.
Creating The Overall Boho Outfit Look:
Think extremely feminine, floaty fabrics with longer length skirts, maxi dresses and tunic tops. Most plus size boho dresses look best using rich colours and patterns that can be contrasted on a nude base. Neon is a no go and very pale pastels don’t always achieve the look you are looking for.
Boho Evening Looks:
Opt for sari type dresses, fringed lace scarves and maxi dresses with jewelled high heels. Co-ordinate with gold long necklaces and multiple bracelets and a beaded clutch bag ensuring you mix from a rich colour palate
Boho Day Looks:
Pair a tunic with jeans and flat sandals for a modern boho look or team a casual maxi dress with flat beaded or plain gladiator sandals for a stunning feminine dress down day look. Add a crochet cardigan to keep off the chill and complete your look with a suede hobo style bag with fringes.
Boho jewellery can be a mix of anything sumptuous and rich looking. Gems, beads, stones, wood, shells, long length necklaces and chunky bracelets are all reflect the boho accessory style. Handbags are large leather, straw or patchwork bags and are perfect for complimenting a boho outfit. On your feet think flat in neutral shades, pale yellows, greens, black or tans. Gladiator sandals, comfy suede boots, fringed flat boots and beaded flats all make up a great boho outfit.
Go for a slightly undone look with your hair down and slighted tousled or loosely tied up with a clip or go for the odd few small braises in your hair. You can even introduce the vintage style headband worn around the forehead for a real boho hairstyle.
