This is a style of dressing inspired by comfortable flowing clothes, with a touch of vintage. Everything about a boho look is natural including the hair styles, make up and style of jewelry. The use of the boho chic as a phrase gained popularity after an Australian journalist used it to describe a look that appeared in vogue. That was over 10 years ago and today, it is an identity that stands out for its uniqueness. If you are interested in putting together some pieces in your closet that you can use to effectively express boho style, here are a few pointers to consider;

White, brown, beige, green and orange are some of the colors to keep a keen eye on acquiring. Many environmentalists are hesitant on wearing fur but there are other similar looking clothing items made from faux which is also a natural fibre.


The boho look cannot be complete without a touch of lace, crotchet and embellishments mostly done by hand. These types of decorations are popular for dresses, hats, bags and tops. Other natural handmade accessories are embroideries, beads and fringes. It is easy to find your closet with heavily patterned clothes and bags with floral prints and checked prints.

If you have decided to pull a boho look, it is important to go all the way. Doing it hallway will not only make you look unkempt but it will also destroy the flow of the style making it something different. Wearing bracelets is a must and the more natural the material is the better for the overall look.
