If you think of yourself as a bit of a gypsy, then Boho fashion is the perfect way to express your earthy, artsy personality.
Boho chic was all the rage in the ’60s and early ’70s and has seen a revival in the last few years because of celebrities like Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, and the Olsen Twins. They’ve embraced this natural look and added their own touch of glitz and glam for a more hippie-luxe look.
No question, boho is fun to wear, but how do you style it without looking like you’re stuck in the ’70s? Here’s how to dress boho style without looking like an old hippie.
1. Choose Free and Flowy Fabrics
Comfortable, loose-fitting, flowy fabrics are part of the boho vibe, so an easy way to get the look is to wear a flowy scarf top.
This scarf top is an excellent example of a beautiful boho-chic scarf top. It’s on the elegant side, and the V-neckline is very flattering for a couple of reasons: 1) showing some skin is youthful, and 2) the V-neck draws your eye downward through along the center of the body, making you look long and lean. I also think this scarf top is beautiful because of the asymmetrical cut. It’s longer at the back and sides giving the top a more artsy look.
2. Wear Flared Jeans
A well-fitting pair of flared jeans in soft faded denim color, or in white, is very west coast, very boho . They look super chic with a luxurious flowy scarf top, a tunic, or boho peasant top.
Bootcut or skinnies are fine too, but if you really want that retro note- a cool pair of flares is the way to go. The bonus? Flares are great when you want to balance out wider hips.
3. Have Fun with Funky Prints
Boho outfit is all about artistic expression and involves lots of funky prints that are wild, colorful, and free-flowing.
When you want to embrace your boho side, look for pieces that showcase eye-catching prints in multiple colors. This fabulous swirl print dress has a fun boho vibe. I’ve elevated the look with a sophisticated clutch and patent leather sandals to appear more modern and boho-chic.
4. Try a Maxi Dress
There’s no better way to look boho than with a pretty maxi. This mixed print dress with the ruffle hem is a classic boho chic style. The off the shoulder neckline, bell sleeves, and suede block heel pumps move us into the present by aligning with current trends. A chic white bag with a structured shape gives this outfit more of an Haute-hippie rather than a hippie-dippie feel.
5. Mix Prints
The best way to express your inner gypsy (I know you’re in there somewhere ) is to mix two prints. Small florals are sweet, feminine, and super boho fashion. They look beautiful combined with a geometric print within the fabric ( see maxi dress above). You can also mix prints in the same outfit. For example, mix a floral top with a paisley print skirt.
