One of the hottest Fashion Trends Today is being called “Bohemian Chic”. It is an updated, eclectic look that borrows from the past’s gypsy, hippie and peasant styles.
This style is also called Boho Chic and it is all about expressing your individuality. The true look is achieved with layers of clothing that have different elements – different colors, patterns or textures and layered accessories. This look is inspired by the current 1970s influence.
This can be a hard look to pull off – especially for those of us who are plus sized. It is much easier to embrace your Bohemian side and still be trendy with one or two carefully chosen items – such as a flowing, retro style tunic, a peasant top with your jeans or a prairie or broomstick skirt. Also Maxi Dresses are very popular again this season, look for one with your Boho style and add sandals and layered bracelets.
Here are some ways to release your inner Boho Chic:
Dresses – Look for Maxi Dresses with a prairie or bohemian vibe – there are many from which to choose. Add in a cute pair of boots and some chunky accessories and you are good to go.
Tops – Adding a cute bohemian top or tunic to wear with your blue jeans is the easiest way to get the look. There are many great choices this fall.
Skirts are a big part of this look. This season’s skirts fit the bill perfectly – they are longer, from mid-calf all the way to the floor, full or flowing and detailed with ruffles or lace. Again the perfect pair of boots will seal the deal.
Sweaters – I have seen some adorable cardigans and even sweater vests this season that are definitely in the boho vibe. I also love a chunky sweater with a long and lowing mid-calf denim skirt and boots. ANother great look is the ponchos that will be popular this season.
Accessories – the top boho accessories this fall include chunky brown leather belts, chunky stacked bangle bracelets, metallic or other eclectic headbands, long fringed scarves (striped or other prints), a floppy felt hat, platform shoes and boots, chunky necklaces and earrings and fringed suede anything – vest, handbag, belt, etc.
