Welcome back to another outfit post! I’ve been feeling very bohemian lately and today I want to share with you this post about how to do a boho chic look.
The whole idea about wearing bohemian clothing is to basically keep it folkloric, carefree and airy but with a touch of gypsy. I suggest the following to achieve this look:
Wear FLOWY clothing: It doesn’t necessarily need to be oversized, but it does have to give you some air to breathe. I love long maxi and midi dresses, rompers/jumpsuits and flowy kimonos and tops. Here are some examples:
Choose TEXTURED pieces: Most boho looks consist of wearing some type of embellishments, patterns, embroidery, and weightless fabrics such as crochet, lace, etc. Look at the pieces I chose:
It must be COMFORTABLE: Like I said before, being comfortable with what you’re wearing is key for this look. Think about choosing loose-fitting, comfy, casual clothing and shoes. Some examples are: maxi dresses, cutoffs, flowy pants, tops with bell sleeves and long skirts just to name a few. Check out my choices:
MIX & MATCH clothes: To give it that gypsy look, there’s usually a play with the textures and colors you would mix and match. It is definitely possible to go overboard with this, so just be careful because you might end up looking like a real hot mess when what we’re really aiming for is a modern and free-spirited chic look. I’m currently loving some of these items:
ACCESORIZE: Another key for any boho look are the accessories you choose with it. Typically, a boho chic look would consist of layering a bunch of accessories. Colorful statement bracelets, long and dangly earrings, fedora hats, headbands, and necklaces with a unique touch work perfectly for this type of look. Here are a few ideas:
I hope all of these tips and ideas help when creating the perfect bohemian look for you!
This is my take on a modern boho chic look for a casual day out. I wore this look on a Sunday evening to stroll around town with le boyfriend.
I have no idea which store the top or the vest came from because my mom brought both as a gift from one of her trips to Spain. She says she bought them at a local bazaar in Barcelona because they reminded her of me. I absolutely loved both pieces the moment I saw them. I guess you can say they are authentic boho pieces, lol.
The top is perfectly flowy with bell sleeves which made me feel super comfortable. I hate wearing tight clothing. As you can see, the hemline and the bell sleeves are embroidered in white with a beautiful floral pattern.
My favorite piece in this outfit has got to be this gorgeous white tasseled vest. It screams “Bohemian” the moment you see it. With its mirror embellishments and tassels, this vest will surely be a staple piece for any of my upcoming boho looks.
I thought about pairing this with a denim skirt or shorts, but it was honestly a little chilly when we went out so I decided to go with a pair of grey jeans to mantain the soft look.
I accesorized my look with these beautiful pieces from a Mexican brand called J for JMR. Their pieces are super unique and many of them (such as the bracelet with my initials, the choker, and the knot bracelet) are carved in bronze.
A pair of white sandals finished my boho outfit and I was ready to go!
What do you think about this look? Have you tried the boho chic look? If so, what did you wear and how? I’d love to see more examples on YOUR take of a bohemian look.
