Some say the bohemian "boho" style is a fashion trend. For others, it is much more...it is a lifestyle - a way of being. In this article, we will explore the boho style so you can decide if the boho style is something you'd like to explore for yourself. If it is, we have some tips for how to bring some boho vibes into your personal style gradually, including this boho inspired outfit with soft blush pink and azure blue florals with coordinating accessories.
First off, let's get right to it...what is "The Bohemian Style"? The Bohemian or "Boho" style is characterized by whimsical, flowy (non-fitted) fabrics, with floral or geometric-type patterns like paisley or patchwork, and artful layering including cardigans, vests, scarves, and jewelry. As far as colors and prints - there really are no rules regarding the boho style. It sometimes leans toward earthy natural colors such as brown and green and subdued hues such as soft mauve pinks and blues. However, it is not uncommon to see vibrant bold splashes of color with large prints and patterns as well. What is important is to note the prominent elements that make the boho style unique from other styles out there: flowy loose fitting fabrics and layered clothing and jewelry.
So are you feeling the boho vibes? Are you feeling carefree, whimsical, creative, and artful? Ready to dabble in some bohemian inspired looks? Yes! We have a few tips to help you using the pieces you may already have in your closet. And don't worry, if you don't...our outfit suggestion included here is also an option for you.
First, take inventory of what you already have and take note of those pieces that are long, flowy, loose-fitting, airy, and lightweight. Some examples may be:
- a long vest
- lightweight cardigan
Sometimes choosing something that is in a larger size than what you would usually wear can help with achieving the relaxed silhouette of the boho style.
For your bottoms, a maxi skirt or wide leg pants would work well or opt for a dress. Keep your focus on lighter fabrics that have movement - think whimsical and carefree as you peruse your closet. Also, if you have a tank top or cami, that is ideal for layering underneath a vest or cardigan because as we discussed, layering is key when creating your boho outfit.
Once you have your clothing pieces selected, it's time to choose some jewelry and other accessories. The boho style tends to lean toward long earrings with tassels or feathers. Necklaces also tend to be long pendants. Wrap and stack bracelets are a great option and mixing metals and materials is perfectly acceptable, if not encouraged to achieve your new look. The boho vibe focuses on layering so don't be afraid to wear multiple necklaces and bracelets. And if you're feeling comfortable, add a belt or scarf to complete your look. Now you're ready to let that free spirit soar and embrace your inner flower child.
