Summer Trend How-to: Boho Chic

"Boho-chic is a style of female fashion drawing on various bohemian and hippie influences. It has been seen since the early 1990s and, although appearing to [fade away] from time to time, has repeatedly re-surfaced in varying [likenesses]. Many elements of boho-chic became popular in the late 1960s and some date back much further, being associated, for example, with pre-Raphaelite women of the mid-to-late 19th century." 
(Excerpt from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boho-chic)

Now that you've had your summer history lesson, let me help you get the style trend of the summer, Boho Chic!

Here are some key pieces to start with:

Maxi Dresses & Skirts
  • Hi-low & full length
Embroidered Dresses
  • Lace, Crochet & Silk
Loose Fitting Tops & Sweaters
  • Cotton, Chambray & Silk    
Jean Shorts
  • Any length or shade
Colored Pants
  • Bright & Vibrant. "Palazzo" & "Harem" pants are my favorite. "Jeggings" are also comfortable and stylish.
Rompers, Jumpsuits & Overalls
  • Quick & effortless outfits

Accessories
     
High Heels
  • Booties, Wedge & Platform
Sandals
  • Strappy, Gladiators & Flip Flops
Canvas Shoes
  • Any color or design
Sunglasses
  • Try using old fashioned frames. Large sizes & metallic colors are nice to find as well.
Rings
  • All sizes, shapes & colors
Bracelets
  • Stack them!!!! You can never have enough!
Necklaces
  • Pair together & play with mixed metals. Any length works.
Hats
  • Floppy & Fedora

Hair
  • Let it be free! Natural hair always works for this style. A messy ponytail, bun or soft waves is good for medium to long hair lengths.


Tip:
Make it your own. Mix pieces together & see what you get. Dress for yourself not for others! What makes you feel gorgeous is the only thing that matters!

With Love,
Christian
