Good news! There´s a modern way to do boho-chic inspired outfit. Ditch those flowery and printed boho pieces and get some single colored separates, April of Sweet Escape shows you how to style yours.
My love for boho-chic inspired me to create this look. I love the free-spirit and artistry about it. In doing boho, you can mix different elements whether its vintage, ethnic, colors or textures. You can also add modern pieces to create modern bohemian look. Although it´s a bit messy look with the layering and accesories, the idea is to have a blend of perfection and imperfection on it. You have to maintain an overall balance in mixing everything and try to be creative. Make it as your own expression of style.
I would love to wear this look to a Music Festival in summer. I think this outfit has a modern take of the 60’s and 70’s hippie bohemian style. Im also inspired by Nicole Richie, she knows how to achieve balance in her bohemian look by adding just the right amount of layers and accessories. She´s also impeccably good in mixing prints, colors and textures without overdoing it. Like her, I´m a mom and a lover of fashion.
To achieve this result, I used the leopard belt from Target as the base. I love leopard print but I wanted to create something that doesn´t scream leopard everywhere. My aim was to do it subtly by blending the print with other solid colored separates. I paired it with my one shoulder teal chiffon top from Bebe, yellow chiffon balloon skirt from Forever 21 and nude ankle boots from Steven Madden. I love the style of the ankle boots because of its wide cuff and nude color that helped to elongate my short legs.
Usually, girls pair a one-shoulder blouse with leggings or skinny pants. But I was surprised when I paired it with the yellow skirt for together, they looked like a dress.
A bohemian look isn´t complete without plenty of accesories so I added this colorful tribal necklace, gold cuff, ethnic bracelet and a statement ring. Those are from Forever 21 and Kohls. To finish up the boho-chic ensemble, I just put on my gold elastic headband, my usual everyday hairstyle.
