Festival season has officially begun, and you know what that means, right? Bohemian Chic style will be everywhere you turn. As a fan of bohemian chic style clothing, I like to “think” that styling it comes naturally to me but it doesn’t. It definitely takes some inspiration from outside sources. That’s when I turn to magazines and blogs. Although it may look simple, achieving a great bohemian look is not easy. The goal is to look like you didn’t try too hard. How do you even begin to do that when most of the looks are so complicated? Headbands, flower crowns, fringe, maxi skirts, ruffle tops. Huh? How do you even begin to put all of that together? Well that’s why I’m here! Today, I’d like to provide you with some tips for achieving the perfect Bohemian Chic Style!
- Choose fabrics and patterns wisely – The basis of bohemian style is about being free. With that in mind, choose fabrics that are light, airy and romantic like cotton, linen or lace. When it comes to patterns, try Ikat, Floral or Ethnic prints.
- Floppy Hats, Flower Crowns, Headbands and Turbans are all welcome – You can’t go wrong with any of these accessories when it comes to bohemian style.
- Fringe is great but don’t overdo it – There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. While fringe is a great element to add to a bohemian look, too much of it can look ridiculous. Use fringe sparingly.
- Wear layered necklaces with natural stones – Layered necklaces particularly those with natural stones like quartz and turquoise can really make a bohemian look pop. I’m crazy about Druzy these days!
- Natural curls and braided hairstyles rule – I think one of my favorite things about bohemian style is that it encourages me to wear my hair natural. Braided styles are also a very beautiful compliment.
For my look today, I’m wearing Free People’s Santa Cruz Dress – Free People and Luka Lace Up Sandals – Free People. This dress is so comfortable and light, it’s perfect for bohemian chic style! To top it off, I added a floppy fedora – Nordstrom and vintage fringe necklace.
Here’s my look:
