1. BUSY PRINTS - PAISLEY, FOLK ART,
PSYCHEDELIC, MOROCCAN, IKAT, TIE DYE,
DIP DYE, OMBRE, FLORALS, GEOMETRICS
Boho loves border prints.
2. DITCH THE JACKET UNLESS ITS DENIM,
BROWN SUEDE OR CHAMBRAY
|The ikat-y print skirt is the only real boho element here, but the |
denim jackets helps to bring a plain tee over the line.
|Simple dress, with a denim jacket starts to move it toward boho.|
|The denim jacket combined with the slouchy |
animal print bag takes this to boho city.
3. LOOSE FLOWY DRESSES,
SHORT OR LONG
A long necklace with an ethnic pendant earns double boho points.
4. MAXI SKIRTS
|Every element here is modern, but the flat sandal & the |
maxi skirt give it a carefree look reminiscent of a boho flavour.
|Notice the dip dye skirt, the plaited belt & the hat. |
They all contribute to the boho look.
|Vicki works a heavy black palette into a very chic boho look.|
Tan boots & belt, stacked textured bracelets,
peasant blouse & ruffled maxi all contribute to the look.
5. WORK THE SCARF
Keep the scarf print in the same style as the prints
I listed at the top of this post.
|Fullproof boho - add a scarf in a busy print with fringing.|
|Animal prints arent classic boho, but the fringing takes it over the line.|
6. THE WHITE SHIRT STILL WORKS,
BUT IN DIFFERENT WAYS
|If you dont want to stretch too far, try a lace top|
7. HATS - FLOPPY, FEDORAS, AKUBRAS,
BEANIES, CROCHET CAPS
8. TAN ACCESSORIES
Anything with a Western flavour earns you double points.
|The fringed cross body bag scores double points.|
Crochet cardi & long flowy hair are another double.
9. A MASH UP
(a) LAYERS ESPECIALLY MESSY LAYERS
(b) TEXTURE & PRINT,
EARTHED WITH NATURAL COLOURS
10. EVENING BOHO
& finally, MINIMALIST BOHO
|Note the hat, the slouchy top half tucked, |
the Western style belt, the messy braid.
|Tan accents, tooling on the leather bag, |
off the shoulder peasant top, the hat.
|What is unusual about this as a boho look is the |
top to toe pale neutrals.
The boho vibe comes from the boots, belt,
layered necklaces, free flowing hair
& slouchy knit pieces.
|The hat, the cross shoulder bag with fringing, the thong sandals, |
the loose dress, the hat & the chunky earthy cuff.
|There is no paisley in sight, but this screams minimalist boho - the colour toning,|
the beaded apron, the vest, the messy hair.
