Want to look gorgeous as well as fashionable on all those days out you have planned this summer? Well, you need look no further than an easy to wear yet supremely stylish boho look. A look that you can find out how to choose and style in the post below.
Find the perfect dress
The first task that you will need to complete when you are creating a boho look is to find the perfect dress. Of course, this may sound a lot easier than it actually is because for a garment to really be perfect there are so many things to consider like style, length, fit, pattern, colour and so on.
Happily, the boho look is still very much on trend right now, so that will mean that even high street stores with have dresses that fit into this look. In particular, watch out for cotton smock types dresses that have lace or crochet in either white or cream or mid-length floral numbers. Especially, those with bold clashing pinks and reds, and ones in a shirt dress, button through style.
Of course, if you do have trouble finding just the right garment in stores, it’s always worth considering so other options as well. One of which is to find a vintage garment website and get an authentic dress for the ’60s or ’70s. Something that means you can be almost 100% sure that no one else will be wearing the same outfit as you!
Another possibility is to use a website that makes dresses to your custom measurements, something that can be a godsend for folks that are in-between sizes. Such services tend to be pretty easy to use as well, as all you need do is pick the fabric and style, and they will do the rest.
Match with some awesome shoes
Once you have your boho dress, then it’s time to match it up with the right footwear. In fact, one of the best things about this trend that you can quite easily get away with many different types of shoe and still look great.
For example, if the weather isn’t so warm, you may want to team your boho stress with some chunky ankle boots, or DMs for a soft vs hard juxtaposition look. You can even finish off this type of outfit with a black leather biker jacket over the top!
However, if the sun’s beating down, it’s unlikely that you will want to be wearing boots all day. Happily, a boho style dress can also be teamed with either ballet flats, flat sandals, or even heeled wedge sandals for a more formal look. The latter being something that can elevate your outfit enough to make it suitable for weddings, and other more formal celebrations.
Accessories with the right jewellery
Once you have the foundations of your outfit sorted it’s time to layer on some additional details like jewellery. In fact, it is often these more subtle details that genuinely complete an outfit and bring it together as a cohesive whole.
In particular, when you are rocking the boho trend, you will want to stay away from chunky silver pieces and go for something like these Unique Jewellery items in gold instead. In fact, delicate and rustic looking pieces are exactly the right vibe to go for when styling boho style outfit. The reason being that you will want pieces that emphasize femininity and don’t overwhelm what you are wearing.
You can even choose to layer a few different pieces like necklaces and pendants in gold, for a more impactful look that doesn’t lose any of its delicacy either. Something that can help you to customize your boho outfit to your own personal style a little more.
Don’t forget a bag
The next item that you need to select carefully when it comes to achieving a compelling boho look is the bag that you will take with you. After all, you won’t want to be without somewhere to store your camera, maps, and water bottle on your summer adventures!
Do be aware though that the type of bag you choose to sport can really make or break your look. That is why it’s best to stay away from more modern designs and fabrics like nylon and go for a more natural vibe instead.
What this means is leather, or a good leather-look bag, or even one made from natural fibres such as cotton canvas, wicker, and bamboo. Of course, if you choose a leather or leather-look bag, then the best design to opt for are a hobo style or bucket bag. This is because not only do these tend to be roomy so you can fit in as much stuff as possible, but they also have that relaxed vibe that will mesh well with your outfit.
For bags in other fabrics, you may even be able to get away with a backpack, shopper, or shoulder bag. Bamboo cage bags are also fashionable this season and can really make a boho outfit pop.
Finish with just the right hairstyle
The boho style isn’t just about what you wear but also your entire look, and your hairstyle is a significant part of this. In particular, a relaxed, romantic style is what you will be looking to achieve here.
What that means is either a messy bun or Gibson roll or you could even try a milkmaid plait a la Florence, from Florence and the Machine. Happily, such a style looks much more complicated to do that it actually is. Although, if you do get stuck, there are plenty of tutorials like the ones in the video below that you can use to help you out.
In fact, if all else fails, you can even get fake plaits on a headband that you can just slip over your head and wrap our own hair around to make it super simple.
Of course, it’s can also totally work will to leave your hair loose too, especially if you treat it with a sea salt spray, and create some relaxed, bouncy curls.
In fact, if you are feeling a little daring, you may well wish to rock a floppy felt hat over such a style, as this can finish off your boho look in the most perfect way.
