With maxi dresses, palazzo pants, and fringe taking over stores all across the nation, it seems Coachella never really ended this year. Although immensely comfortable, sporting a Boho style can be tricky. There’s a fine line between loose and flowy and baggy and frumpy. Here are some tips you can follow to perfect the Boho-Chic look:

One at a time 

If you wear a loose top, wear fitted pants. Similarly, if you wear loose pants, wear a fitted top. This will prevent you from drowning in your clothes. After all, you wear the clothes, the clothes don’t wear you.

For an urban twist, pull your hair back. Leaving your hair down can scream teenager at a music festival. A nice, structured bag like the one shown below can add some much needed shape to your look. It’s all about balance!

Play with prints 

The best part about rocking a boho-chic look is being able to wear different types of prints. The colours are usually warm, with yellow and brown hues, which looks good on any skin tone. Tribal prints, aztec prints, or anything with some colour can take your look from drab to fab.

Less is more 

Focus on one thing at a time. If you decide on a boho dress, skip the fringe shoes. Instead, pair it with some flats, or heels – for a more dressier look. Pro tip: Add a floppy hat to everything and anything this summer for an added flare to your outfit. Love it!

Accessories are everything. Whether you opt for a drapey shoulder bag, or these cute sandles from Free People, choosing the right accessories can even take a simple t-shirt and jeans from street meek to boho chic.

Whatever look you opt for, its important to own it. Boho is all about comfort. So if you’re rocking a look you don’t feel comfortable in, you’re definitely not doing it right.

Good luck!
