One of my favourite looks this summer! Of course, I am talking about the boho-chic outfit 🙂 For those who don’t know what a bohemian style refers to (or also known as “boho-chic) it is style ‘that includes flowy clothing, vintage and ethnic-inspired accessories’. Think comfort. A key ingredient in Boho Chic style is comfort — you’ll see a lot of soft, loose-fitting, flowy clothes, often worn in layers. Maxi dresses (full-length, usually loose-fitting dresses) are a great example of the flowy comfort common to Boho Chic.
- How to wear it
For a balanced outfit, I like to combine fitted and flowy clothes, just as I also like to pair neutral tones with bright and lively colours— for example, white, beige, and brown tones, with earthy reds and oranges, and dark greens colours. The same goes for patters, style your checks and ethnic-inspired prints with relatively neutral items. In other words, to achieve a perfect “boho-chic” look, you want to play with contrasts and opposites, while maximising on comfort.
Here I paired a fitted, plain, neutral beige top featuring an open v-neck with a flowy, loose-fitting maxi skirt. I played with opposites and contrasts to achieve a well balanced look. Off shoulder tops and v-neck t-shirt would contrast and balance well well with maxi dresses.
- How to accessorise it
You can style a Boho-chic look with accessories, which I didn’t do much as I went for a more minimalist and sophisticated version of the boho spirit, but feel free to experiment and have fun. Bracelets, necklaces layered, rings staked or hats and headbands or a colourful handbags, are all fun ways to elevate your free-spirited outfit (but don’t over do!).
