Boho chic is the perfect laid-back look for the summer months since it can be worn effortlessly on the streets, on the beach, at festivals and…well pretty much anywhere that you’re likely to be hanging out when the sun is out. However, it can be kinda tricky to get it right sometimes. Don’t worry though, because if you want to go bohemian in the style stakes this summer, I’ve got you covered with this quick guide to boho chic wardrobe must-haves…
If you’re serious about boho chic, then you must have a few maxi skirts ready to throw on at any time. Choose one skirt that is quite plain, one that is tiered and one that is a little more floaty, patterned and intricate and you will be able to create a wide range of boho looks effortlessly by switching up your tops. Want a slightly more rock chick look? Pair your maxi with a graphic tee. Going for a hippy vibe? A simple white vest and woven shrug will do the job in no time at all.
Neutral Ankle Boots
Ankle boots scream boho chic so pick up a pair in a neutral colour such as brown, grey or even black if you prefer. Choose a pair that have a wooden heel for that authentic laid-back bohemian look or a pair of cowboy boots if you want to add a little Americano flair to your outfits. The more distressed your boots are the better, so don’t be afraid to wear them all the time and wear them well.
Band tees are fabulous because they can be used to create a number of looks from boho chic to rock chick. Have a few of them in your wardrobe for more casual days, teaming them with maxi skirts, wearing them over dresses or pairing them with distressed jeans and boots to strike the right note.
Gladiator sandals give you that care-free hippie vibe whilst also ensuring that you look stylish and sophisticated at any time, Silver, gold or brown colours are best for this kind of footwear.
Headwraps and Piercings
When it comes to accessorising the boho look, you really can’t go wrong with headwraps such as scarfs and bandanas which can be wrapped around the hair to add some colour and simple style. Floral scarves, velvet headbands and even floral crowns are all great.
You also can’t go wrong with a few piercings. Nose rings and hoops are particularly good for setting the right tone. Of course, if you aren’t willing to commit to piercings, you can fake it, or you can go with big hoop earrings instead. There are also stick on bindis which look amazing and which are not such a big commitment as piercings.
Ultimately, the boho look is about expressing your individual style, choosing comfort over other concerns and looking as laid back as possible, so feel free to break all of the rules but know that the above staples will help you to get it right.
