They say that trends always come full circle, and we've seen enough folksy looks from the 2014 runways to know boho-chic is officially back in! Think: 1970's, floral patterns, intricate embroidery, natural fabrics, and leather or suede. If you love the style of celebs such as Vanessa Hudgens, the Olsen Twins, Nicole Richie, and Sienna Miller, let this article be your guide to boho style!
Like a rolling stone
From the runways of Etro and Miu Miu to Valentino and Dries Van Noten, there's a clear line of hippie/bohemian inspiration running through all of them. Each paired their boho looks with natural beauty and simple hairstyles, so plan to style your hair in lots of beach waves or milkmaid braids with a "no makeup" makeup look. If you want the whole "I travel by caravan... but I'm still super glam" look, give your face a sweep of bronzer for a sunkissed glow.
You can achieve boho-chic style in many ways. Visit thrift stores when you travel to find truly one-of-a-kind items and really layer up the jewelry as you're going for a chic version of this look.
Boho style tends to involve lots of layering and texture- like a long wool coat and airy linen mini dress with suede knee-high lace-up boots, or a long cotton dress with exotic vintage trim and an embroidered scarf. Texture and pattern also play a huge part, so don't hesitate to throw on a faux-fur jacket over your denim shorts or mix textiles from different cultures.
Of course, the most important part of trying a new style is to have fun!
