Floppy hats, scarfs, maxi skirts, chunky jewelry, and earthy prints – these are the essential pieces to building the ultimate bohemian wardrobe. The key to achieving this style is to avoid dressing from head to toe in accessories but to incorporate a few statement pieces with neutral basics. As the boho trend continues to sweep street fashion this spring 2018, here are 5 must-have items for your boho chic wardrobe.
An ideal foundation for a cool, bohemian style at any age is a great maxi skirt. The best ones are solid-colored, simple, and loose as they are the easiest pieces to build from. You can wear a basic maxi skirt with a versatile vest and finish with gladiator sandals. For a comfortable daily ensemble, pair a skirt with a solid V-neck and a floppy hat.
It can be easy to go crazy with accessories as they are the perfect touch to an amazing outfit. However, in bohemian fashion, less is more. Opt for a single statement piece with a chunky feel for an eccentric style. Don’t be afraid to go for a fun print if you’re wearing a solid blouse or sweater.
Neutral Ankle Boots
Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens and Mary-Kate Olsen are often seen rocking the loose ankle boots as style staples. Ankle boots can be worn with or without heels, so they are perfect for wearing both skirts and skinny jeans. When wearing a maxi skirt, opt for fitted boots. Remember, the shorter the skirt, the chunkier the heels can be.
There are plenty of ways to style bohemian hairpieces. You can choose thin headbands that will look chic across your forehead or as a halo. Hairpieces and turbans are also a great way to add fashion and glamour when you don’t have enough time to style your hair.
Wool floppy hats are a great boho accessory for the Fall and Winter season. Even if you choose to wear a basic outfit, you can add a floppy hat for gypsy flair. Just be sure to keep the colors neutral in the shades of black, beige, and even white.
Remember, you don’t have to go overboard with this trend. The key to style success is to keep statement pieces to no more than two items. This might include a scarf and a fedora or an interesting kimono paired with cowboy boots. After all, boho chic is about embracing your free spirit and inner style.
