If you are looking to go boho this summer, you have made the right choice. Bohemian style clothing allows you to play around with your look in endless ways. You will simply be enthralled with your options. Here are the 5 tips that will help you nail the perfect boho summer look this season.
- Keep it breezy
After all it is the summer, so make it a point to keep your fabrics skin friendly. Bunk the heavy and unbreathable materials such as wool, silk, and polyester. Cotton is always a yes, it not only allows the skin to breathe, but also keeps the clothes from looking too bulky. Choose garments that allow plenty of freedom in movement. Frilled skirts, harem pants, gauchos and maxi skirts are always great for summer. These pieces also add versatility to your wardrobe as you can easily mix and match them with the rest of your collection in case you want to try out a different look.
- Choose the right footwear
During the summer months, feet usually swell up. This means that shoes that would have otherwise given you a good fit, will start to be uncomfortable. This can soon lead to blistering causing further discomfort. Therefore, the best thing to do is to get an entire set of footwear, specifically for the summer. Open toed, anti-slip shoes are the best for the summer months. Also, don’t forget to buy a pair of flip flops for easy wear. These will also come in very handy if you frequent the beach.
This is not the best part about summer, but you have to pay attention to even the smallest of things like the size, weight, and material of the bags you carry. Heavy bags with coarse materials are very much likely to cause rashes and bruises. Resort to compact packing, to make sure your bags have a boho touch, opt for materials like leather and suede, frills and embroidery will uplift the look. Do not overcrowd the bag with too many items. Carry only the basics as this will help you cut down on weight.
- Play with colors
Boho fashion is all about freedom and liveliness, so what better time to play with colors than summer. Go for bright colors like muted orange, muted yellow, reddish brown, soft blue and soft green. You can also choose from prints as long as they are in tune with the bohemian theme. Fine Aztec prints, paisleys, tribal prints and geometric prints are very definitive of boho fashion. Mix and match your garments in a way that there is the right balance between prints and different colors.
It is the summer, so don’t make your look too over the top with a stack of chunky jewelry. You could instead go natural with shells and wooden jewelry. These can be worn at the beach as well as festivals. The jewelry should be able to reflect the fun and playful side of you and add vibrancy to your overall look.
- Feather and tassels
It is not every day that you get to wear feather accessories. So take full advantage of the summer and rock the look with some chic boho outfits. Feathers attached to hoop earrings are very light and outgoing. They add a very laid back touch to your look. So get into the spirit and pick up some tassels and feathers before the season is over.
