Bohemian style often referred to as “boho” or “bohochic” is a style of dressing that was popularized during the 1960s and 1970s. Looking at the style I am sure you can trace the roots back further. The key ingredient to get the style right is to do with free and flowy fabrics.
In today’s world Bohemian is applied to people who live unconventional and usually artistic carefree life. Even though the original “Bohemians” were travelers or refugees from central Europe (hence, the French bohemian, for “gypsy” And these girls looked sexy, nomadic, spirited and delightful simply because they never really bothered about fashion.
That was for the facts….
I love this look for its comfort and ease, and it gives me enough room to experiment with my creativity. It is proven that the clothes you wear set the mood for the day. It also influences the psyche of yours and the people you meet. It changes the way you look at yourself and how others look at you.And also it changes the way you behave and others response to you .So I usually go dramatic when I want to be left alone to do my work the way I want to. And believe me, that works! 😉
Few things you need in your wardrobe to get this look
Neutral-Colored Ankle Boots / Strappy shoes – they look awesome with dresses and skirts too.
Chic Head wraps and Hairbands– Hairbands are a great way to add glamour and fashion to a bad-hair-day ponytail and I can vouch on it.
Printed Palazzo– here I am wearing a palazzo with side slits (yeah you are right, for the extra drama)
The crop top – They are quite versatile, so you can find a way to spot them by pairing it with different bottoms for different looks.
Chunky. Earthy Jewelry– I love them, though not worn here as the top is printed. But they do add spice to your bohemian look for sure. The more unique the better they look. I usually pick them up from exhibitions.
Cross-body bags or a back pack – are awesome because they keep your hands free.
Oversized sunglasses– to make that statement!
Oversized, Patterned Scarves -Very important to give any outfit that extra laid-back, earthy, chill boost. And also saves you from sun at times.
And above all of this, the attitude!
“It’s not my responsibility to be beautiful. I am not alive for that purpose. My existence is not about how desirable you find me.”
Yes, that’s the bohochic for you 🙂
