Think Vanessa Hugdens, think Dalene Ekirapa and think boho-style; the most embraced of style that absolutely fits everyone especially with its wide variety of outfits that define it. Well, bohemian style dates back to the 60s and 70s and mainly focuses on free and flow-y dressing to symbolize the hippie bandwagon. Bohemian style also embraces clothing that harmonizes one with nature and oneself thus incorporating such pieces is such a must-do for any street fashionista.
We all love attending galas and garden parties,right? Just because they always give us the perfect excuse to show off airy outfits. So if you have just joined this Bohemian frenzzie like me, then opt for a maxi skirt as your first wardrobe piece since with this uber chic and hippie staple, you can already be a boho chic! That is if you won’t want to consider the aspect of layering and oversized dressing now!
It is no doubt that chiffon is the best option when it comes to picking out clothing for bohemian style. Chiffon is a very fabric that will add a flattering effect to your piece. I opted for a lime chiffon maxi skirt. But what if you want to be more creative and bring the classic chic vibes into the Bohemian vibes? Then you just have to get creative and get the Bohemian tulip. I mean, aren’t tulip skirts more sexy and feminine than the flow-y maxi skirts? It is not a miracle to find tall and slim ladies try and run away from maxi skirts…well, at least I did just that today. I tuck into the fringe belt parts of this skirt for a hi-lo design which perfectly brought out a tulip effect on the skirt. What do you think about this lovelies?
I wore this Bohemian tulip with a neon green top. I was in for the monochromatic color coordination thus the two colors blended perfectly. And when it comes to accessories, boho vibes are just full of it! Accessories help to add up to better overall ambiance of any look; from belts, to scarves, to gloves, to hats, to sunglasses and to bags.
While a scarf blends subtly with your color palette for an elegant look, a belt adds a vintage theme to your look while cinching your waist. Yet again, a hat will completely pull out one look in different ways while a sling bag will complete your overall boho look. And most importantly, wear cute sunglasses for an instant classy and sassy look. I went for glasses and red accessories today; just adding a pop of color to this bohemian thing! Well, while still getting a plus for my fringe belt and pointed-toe favorites!
Braids bring to mind the bohemian vibes thus my option today with my bob braids. I can call these bob braids one of my favorite hairstyles and you’ve probably noticed me donning the style a couple of times already, right?
Anyway, bohemian style also advocates for natural makeup look; from neutral looking hues on the lips to neutral eye makeup but I guess I had to break that rule today. I mean, doesn’t personal style entail breaking rules of fashion once in a while.
Today was all about going Bohemian and I’m certain I did that well, right? Catch more of my pictures lovelies…
