Call it an effect of the shift in global consciousness or a gypsy revival, the fashion world is witnessing a Bohemian Bonanza this summer. Boho Chic has gained popularity over the years with glamorous renditions of it. What started out as a modern day interpretation of the 1960s flower child is now an independent look with its own personality and traits.The look is storming the ramps and the high street with fresh zeal and modern updates.
Today's my Boho Chic Look is a pretty Yellow Pleated Long Maxi Skirt paired with a Coral Tank top with Crochet. I accessorised with lots of colourful 'Arm Candy' with coloured wooden bangles and bracelets. I wore long dangling multi coloured Earrings with a little ethnic feel and a Blue beaded Neckpiece. I also donned a Floral Neon Hat,wore a Neon Orange Clutch bag across my torso and Neon Orange Peep Toes.
It is a very modern day Boho Chic look with a colour burst. It's June Bloom time and we shot amongst the beautiful surroundings of garden, trees and flowers. Today's pictures have been shot by talented photographer Pooja S .
Boho is short for bohemian and by definition,unconventional. The reimagined trend has found elegance hence the term 'chic'. Boho is all about looking individual and natural. In essence it means putting together your outfits in such a way as to be uniquely stylish and unusually, unexpectedly elegant. The look is free-spirited. A woman who prefers this look is considered fun, ungoverned by mainstream fashion rules and independent.
Some of its famous practitioners include Nicole Ritchie, Kate Hudson, Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, the Olsen twins and Sienna Miller.
Boho Chic Styling Tips
1. Clothing: Boho chic has moved from simply being an earthy flavour and loves tones such as greens, oranges, yellow and magenta. Look at the length of your skirts and dresses. They tend to be floor-sweeping, making it a critical part of this look. The skirts are flowy, hair is loose and print from floral to animal is on. Look for tops with beading, embroidery, floral prints, crochet details. This summer, some of the dress trends are super long dresses, prints, floral patterns, and bright colours paired with earthy tones.
2. Accessories: This is probably the most important part of all. Boho chic is synonymous with "accessories galore". This means plenty of bracelets, ankle bracelets, mix-and-match necklaces, and dangling earrings.. Layers of bracelets make the phrase “arm candy” very boho. Long, dangling earrings and wooden bangles are perfect and you can also wear a small purse across your torso.
Your sandals can be in neutral tones, but pops of colour can be a fun way to make this trend your own.
