“Boho Chic” is described as a style that uses drifting clothes, classic and ethnic accessories, as well as natural hair and makeup. The term became popular in 2002, when Australian journalist Laura Demasi used it to describe the appearance of the eclectic gypsy who was then in Vogue. Although 10 years have passed since the Demasi article was written, Boho Chic remains a popular style.
When collecting Boho Chic clothes, choose clothes made from natural materials such as cotton, linen, velvet, chiffon, silk, leather, suede, and fur. In addition, choose clothing in natural colors, such as white, beige, light brown, orange and earth red, and dark green.
Note that wearing fur is seen as a cruel and unethical choice. If you like fur, but don’t want to wear real fur, there are many fake fur clothes that are currently available at clothing stores.
Add lace, knits, and other decorations. Knitwear, tops, hats and knitted and frilly bags are the basis of Boho Chic. Beads, tassel and embroidery are also popular and can be added to clothing and accessories.
Boho Chic clothes have many motifs, such as flowers and eccentric accents, as well as checkered and ethnic motifs. When experimenting with pleasing motives, mix with other relatively neutral choices to create balance.
The essence of Boho Chic style is comfort. You will see lots of soft, loose, and floating clothing that is often worn in layers. For example, maxi dresses (long, and usually loose) are examples of floating and comfortable clothing that is often displayed by Boho Chic women.
Avoid neon colors. Bright colors are good for warming up the Boho Chic style, but make sure the colors are natural. For example, the color of gems such as red pomegranate or sapphire blue, or turquoise colors like clear mountain lake water.
