The boho style is set to dominate the high street this summer, so if you want to get the look,
follow these simple tips:
You can make any outfit look boho with the right accessories, so make sure you get your
hands on plenty of wooden beads, chunky bangles and dangly earrings. Rope, leather,
crochet and lace are all perfect materials for boho belts, and you can even wear two or
three belts together to create one big statement.
Floral fabrics are big news for summer fashion, and work perfectly with the boho style. To
get the look, choose a maxi dress in a light and floaty material, and rough it up for daytime
by layering with a denim waistcoat and chunky leather belt. In the evening, add a touch of
cool with strings of hippy beads and plenty of stacked up bangles.
Believe it or not, double denim is back, and an ideal way to get the boho look. Wear ripped
up jeans or cut-off shorts with a tucked-in denim shirt or floaty blouse, topping it off with a
denim jacket. Floor-length skirts are going to be everywhere this summer, so hit two trends
at once and choose yours in denim.
If you want the sexiness of a short skirt with the convenience of wearing shorts, choose
skorts – shorts that are designed to look like a summer skirt. Floral or tribal fabrics are
perfect for boho, so choose yours in one of these fabrics and make sure the rest of your
outfit clashes. The boho look is all about mixing pretty pieces with something a little rougher
around the edges. Wear your skorts with Hush Puppies boots to get the right mix of pretty
and practical, whilst still being fashion forward.
Hair and makeup
To complete your boho look, make sure your hair and makeup is free and easy. Tousled
beach hair will perfectly compliment the style – especially when it's accessorised with a
hippy headband or flower garland. Keep makeup to a minimum during the day, and add
a sweep of glittery shadow and a slick of bright lipstick for an evening look. Highlight your
cheekbones with a little more glitter to accentuate them. Just make sure you don’t go
overboard, or you could end up looking like Tinkerbell.
