The Boho-Chic look, as the name denotes, borrows from the Bohemian and Hippie styles and features the sixties look as well. This fashion style is all about being yourself, and that means being natural.
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the Boho-Chic look. The idea behind this style is free self-expression, so anything goes. Boho-Chic fashion incorporates vintage and ethnic clothing and jewelry, offering women a chance to create a natural and unusual look.
One of the best things about Boho-Chic is that it offers trendy clothing, suitable for all sizes, including plus-sized women, since much of the Boho-Chic clothes are baggy and flowing. Boho-Chic clothing is often colorful, and at the same time earthy, since beige, khaki, grey, brown, cream, white, and black colors are used.
Since the Boho-Chic look is influenced by the bohemian gypsy look, you might want to get yourself some vintage clothing and jewelry. Colorful scarves, tunics, pants, jeans, long flowing skirts and dresses, hip and colorful belts are used to attain this look.
Fabrics, which feature contrasting and colorful prints (especially floral prints), braids and detailed embroidery, are most popular. Trying out various combinations of fabrics and colors that do not clash too much would be a good idea. Beads are also used to add to the Boho-Chic look. Faux-fur and colorful knitted clothing are also popular.
When it comes to jewelry, dangling chandelier earrings and big hoop earrings, beaded bracelets, bangles, jewelry incorporating shells, stones and woodwork are much favored. Hair is usually styled to look ‘natural’ and tousled, and bangs are quite common.
Colorful headbands and bandanas are the most commonly used hair accessories. For footwear, sandals, high-heeled leather boots, cowboy boots, and sheepskin boots, also known as Uggs are preferred.
Sack-like and beaded hobo bags (these bags often come with braided straps that accentuate the Boho-Chic look) that hang loose, help complete your Boho-Chic look. A natural look is preferred when it comes to make-up. Soft earthy and neutral shades are often used.
