The Style Series: Boho

Hello ladies! You have voted and the majority of the votes for my first The Style Guide Series post went to the Boho style. The Boho style is all about the laid back, beachy, free-spirited, reminiscent style of 1960′s and 70′s hippie fashion. Major celebrities like Nicole Ritchie, Mary-Kate Olsen, Vanessa Hudgens, Sienna Miller, and Rachel Zoe follow this particular style. On this post I will be giving you a small guide on how to achieve this laid back style, so keep on reading to help you find your very own Boho style.

Boho Wardrobe Essential Pieces:
As you can see the list of Boho essentials is very low maintenance and relaxed. There is alot of flowy-ness involved. But even by picking up a few boho inspired pieces and mixing and matching it with what you already own will help you create a nice boho look. . .

  •  Maxi Dresses
  •  Flowy Tops
  •  Destroyed Denim
  •  Long Cardigans
  •  Flowy Skirts
Boho Shoe Styles:

The best type of shoes to wear with a boho inspired look are pretty sandals. But if sandals seem way too informal or the weather does not permit you to wear sandals there are other option you can wear . . .

  •  Wedges
  •  Sandals
  •  Clogs
  • Moccasins

Boho Acessories:

No outfit can be complete without accessories. Whit this style you can have so much fun accessorizing! It is all about layering. You can layer necklaces or bracelets, use rings that have pretty stones, and wear fantastic dangly earrings. When it comes to choosing your jewelry you really want to go with jewelery made out of natural materials, or in shapes inspired by nature. Try a necklace with a feather charm, wood bangles, or earrings made out of shells. Find pieces that use precious stones or made from beads (You can even make your own, if your crafty) Gold jewelry is also good option for a boho look. Jewelery can be as loud or as understated as you want with the boho look. Apart from jewelry some great accessories are belts to keep you from looking to frumpy, a nice hobo bag or a small cross body bag, and a nice pair of oversize sunglasses (You do not have to get aviators, they just happened to be my favorite for this particular style so I added the haha) 
  • Long necklaces
  • Dangly earrings
  • Belts
  • Hobo Bags
  • Aviator Sunglasses
  • Bracelets
Boho Hair:

As I said before the essence of the boho style is a very relaxed, natural, and free-spirited. So the ideal hair style would be a more messy and care-free one. Unless you want to go for that straight hair, parted in the middle look that also goes well with the boho look I would suggest to try not make your hair too polished. Some great boho hair styles are. . .

  • Braids
  • Beach wave hair
  • Feathers
  • Boho headbands
Boho Style Tips:
  • Wear alot of diffrent prints, such as tribal, floral, paisley, and geometrical native insipired prints and use fringe as well.
  • For that nature feeling use earthy colors such as browns, cremes, olive greens, tans, and white. But dont be afraid to add pops of nice colors such as yellow, orange, turquoise, and coral.
  • To make the outfit more feminine use pieces with lace or crochet detailing. Also choose clothes with pretty beading or embrodeiry to make the outfit much more prettier and not so plain.
  • Experiment with different kinds of materials when it comes to the boho styles. Use materials like suede, leather, and cotton.
Style Icon

My perfect boho style icon has to be Nicole Ritchie. She is the ideal boho girl in my eyes. Even when she chooses to wear dark colors instead of earthy ones, she manages to capture that laid back style by choosing floral, flowy tops and distressed shorts (Pictured above).

I hope you ladies enjoyed my first ever "Style Guide Series" post. And that this post has helped learned a bit more about the boho style and how you can achieve it. Thank you for reading and dont forget to vote for the next "Style Guide Series" post.
