If you’re one of the few who are not affected by this craze and are confused as to what BoHo fashion is, then we can gladly sort that out. BoHo stands for Bohemian, and is widely influenced by the hipster and gypsy fashion and the unconventional way of living. It was the buzz back in 2005, brought to the spotlight by supermodel Kate Moss and actresses like Sienna Miller and the Olsen twins, and has resurfaced frequently in the past. Like always, it’s back again with a bang. 

Moreover, we live in an era where social media influencers play a big role in trendsetting. And when one starts, the others follow. Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens and singer Florence Welch are some of the most recognizable icons of BoHo fashion today.

To adapt a BoHo look, you need to stock up your closet with the right essentials, and for that you can exploit the flea markets in Delhi NCR. Janpath, Inderlok, Sarojini Nagar, and Tibetan Market are perfect for purchasing jewellery and accessories at a reasonable price. But if you have the urge to splurge, aim for brands like Forever 21, Gap, Old Navy, and Zara, to name a few. Or, if you’re feeling lazy, just stick to good old Amazon. 

Is there a BoHo colour palette?

Colours and patterns play a huge role in creating a fashion statement. The BoHo colour palette is quite earthy and natural, like dark green, brown beige, earthy red, white, ochre, and orange. Floral prints and embroidery, tassels, feathers, fringes, and wooden accessories are also a must have in the gypsy wardrobe.

You see, it may not seem like an easy style to pull off, as one needs to take into account every intricate detail about the clothing piece they wear, from colour to size and silhouette. If you’re having a hard time piecing your outfit together, here’s a few pointers to help you out:

Bohemian Essentials –

1. A maxi skirt of solid colors

When it comes to BoHo chic, keeping it simple does the trick. And when it comes to maxi skirts, solid colours do more than enough to complete your look. You can pair them with a solid coloured v-neck shirt or a graphic t-shirt for a comfy look. Add a pair of canvas sneakers and a sun hat if you like.

2. Neutral colored ankle boots

The best thing about neutral colours is that they go with anything. And the best thing about neutral coloured ankle boots is that you can wear them with anything, be it short shorts, dresses, skirts, or skinny jeans, and create different looks each time. Keep the heel short and wide for your own comfort.

4. Complimenting accessories

No style or outfit is complete without the complimentary bling-bling. To complete the boho chic look, chunky thumb rings and bracelets, dangly earrings decorated with feathers or pieces of wood, layered statement necklaces, metal and wooden bangles usually work best. The more eccentric and unusual, the better.

5. Gladiator sandals

Gladiator sandals are an essential bohemian footwear. And we mean ESSENTIAL. They give off a badass vibe even when paired with dresses and skirts, and are still easy to slip and off, as well as versatile, airy, and light enough to be worn on a hot summer day. 

6. Eccentric geometric prints

While florals are cute and all, but nothing can replace bold and eccentric geometric patterns like chevrons on shirts and dresses, as they add to the free-spirited edge that we are trying to achieve. You can choose a small clothing item like a mini skirt or a scarf to flaunt the big patterns, or go all the way to a patterned long or maxi dress.

7. Loose, flared, distressed jeans

Step aside, skinny jeans, there’s a new trend in town. BoHo fashion is represented by a free spirit, and a pair of loose flared jeans represent the Boho chic style. Another upside to these is that they make your shoes look fabulous. Wear them with tunics and gladiator sandals or a knitted sweater.

8. Over sized and patterned scarves

An oversized scarf with bold and eye catching patterns gives an outfit as simple as a white t-shirt paired with jeans and sneakers an earthy yet chic boost. You can also try and create other pieces like a halter top or a belt by folding, pinning or tying up large scarves.

9. Fringed Kimono Cardigan

A huge benefit of wearing a fringed kimono or cardigan is that you don’t have to worry about whether it suits you or not. It compliments any and every body type there is. A kimono in a neutral tone can be paired with pretty much everything. A suitable style for this is to wear a fringed white crochet kimono with a romper for an evening date or brunch.

10. Headpieces and hats

Floppy brimmed hats, headbands, and head wraps are some of the most popular elements of boho chic fashion. The best thing about headpieces is that you only need to buy a few to last for multiple seasons, and it’s usually the cheaper ones that last longer. Felt hats are great for winters while straw sun hats can be paired with sunglasses and a sundress for summers.
