The bohemian look is going to be big in spring thanks to the influx of festival-inspired wear. The modern bohemian avoids over-sized bell bottoms, but she does enjoy her flower crowns and peasant tops – think Alexa Chung and Nicole Ritchie. If you want more ideas on how to wear the boho look, then follow these tips to update your look from hippie chic to glamorous bohemian babe.
Flower crowns are one of the most popular hair trends this spring. You can wear them with your hear down for a loose romantic music festival–inspired look. However, if you really want to be on-trend, then try rolling your hair or braiding and tucking it into the elasticised band of the headband. This will create a look that is refreshing and modern. This style is also a great way to keep you cool as the temperatures start to rise!
Maxi skirts are a bohemian style staple, and they have been popular for the past few seasons. They get an upgrade this spring with bright neon colours, tribal-inspired patterns, and loose, flowing fabrics. Look for maxi skirts made of chiffon or a sheer fabric for an updated version of this classic style.
Bright neon colours like hot pink or highlighter yellow are a fun trend to pair with a monochromatic top, or choose romantic pinks and neutrals for a softer palette. Just remember to keep the rest of your look simple if you are going to pick out a wild maxi skirt.
The peasant top
If you can only invest in one bohemian piece this spring, let it be a peasant top. These sexy tops are a great transitional season piece. You can wear it now with a light jacket or later in the summer with denim cutoffs. Peasant tops come in many different styles and colours. Look for off-the-shoulder white tops with embroidery around the neckline, as well as darker peasant tops in lace or linen. Pick one that best represents your style.
The bohemian scarf
A scarf is a bohemian’s best friend because it can be worn anywhere. You can tie one around your head when you are having a bad hair day, or you can wrap it around you waist while at the beach. Pick out a scarf with a wild pattern to make it fun and flirty for the season ahead.
If you really want to do bohemian style right, then you need to invest in some crochet pieces. The biggest crochet trend this spring is shorts. You can dress these up or down depending on the occasion. Plus, shorts are super sexy and a great alternative to skirts or dresses. You can also look for shorts that have crochet appliques if you want to wear the trend in a simpler way. If you are not feeling this look, then you can always opt for crochet accessories. Accessories are easier to pull off, and a crochet bag will make any outfit look instantly bohemian.
