One look that never gets old during the summer months is the boho look. Relaxed yet stylish, chill but fun, the boho look perfect for relaxing, running errands or attending festivals. These tips will help you nail it every time:
Look For Real Vintage Items Real vintage items from the 70s era will definitely help you put together a more believable boho look. You don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard of course, but items like this are really helpful. Mixing your vintage with modern pieces will help you create better outfits and avoid looking too “costumey.” Look for real vintage items that really speak to you and make sure the items you’re buying are quality pieces before you buy them. Also, beware that some items may be reworked vintage and not the original item. Do your research before going vintage shopping!
Pile On Your Jewelry The boho look is all about piling on the jewelry. Stack on rings, bracelets, necklaces and more. You can’t really go over the top when you’re choosing jewelry for a boho look. Elf925 has so many options that could work with this look, including some great pieces with semi precious stones and gems. All boho girls must have some great gems!
Use Lots Of Natural Fabrics Leather, suede, and faux fur are elements of a great boho look. Mixing up lots of textures is another great technique, and will keep your outfits from looking flat and dull.
Use Natural Tones And Colors You’ll usually find boho outfits full of natural tones and colors, rather than brights and bold colors. You can break the rules of course, but traditional boho looks use mostly natural tones. Colors like black, white, brown, red, green, beige, and so on are perfect for this look.
Learn How To Layer Your Garments Layering your garments will create a multi dimensional look that’s more put together. That’s why you’ll see so many boho outfits layering gilets over shirts, long tops over leggings, and maxi skirts with slouchy items and jackets. This is a skill that you can use every season, whether you’re using the boho look or not.
