So you like that Boho look that you’ve been pinning on Pinterest, saving on Instagram and drooling over in all the mags. Well, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for us to impart some knowledge and give you a few tips to easily achieve that boho look in your life, without breaking the bank or busting a brain cell.
- It’s all about the accessories
Whether it’s home styling or self-styling – accessorise your way to achieving boho perfection with fresh flowers, gorgeous plants and bright colours. Our style pick are these stunning flower crowns from the girls at Little Bloom Room. Perfect for ladies days, garden parties and weddings. L O V E.
Meghan Doyle from Wildflower Avenue says it’s the eclectic mix that nails boho chic: “It’s all about a relaxed look, embracing freedom and mixing up different cultures and different times – a vintage scarf from the 70s may go beautifully with a lavish item you’ve picked up on your travels; being free to move, and feeling good.”
- Go with the flow – literally
Say bye bye to restrictive, tight clothes and hello to freedom. Embrace flowing maxi skirts, long printed dresses and our personal favourite – ruffles! Our friends over at Sassi J have so many beautiful options to spice up your wardrobe and inject some boho chic into your everyday collection.
Nothing says bohemian like a picnic, and Meghan says being able to spontaneously sit down on the ground, on a throw-rug or cushion is a must-have element in boho fash: “You don’t want anything tight that’s going to ride up, or not cover everything you want it to cover.”
- Mix and match to your heart’s content
Gosh, we love when there are no rules (after writing 3 unofficial rules…) and mixing and matching is the perfect way to express your boho self! Clashing prints, mixed metals and lots of texture. Try adding a fluffy rug, a macramé pouffe and a spiky cactus all into the one space. Now that’s boho perfection!
“A lot of the bohemian styling lately has taken on a ‘native’ feel,” Meghan said. “Arrows, feathers, secret symbols that might hint at your creative side, your free-spirit – you can look at these symbols and they’re inspiring. You can daydream about adventures.”
