- How can I achieve the boho outfit look?
Answer: When it comes to chic bohemian looks, you need to consider billowy and soft fabrics for maxi dresses, tunics and skirts. The best boho pieces feature a nude base strewn with patterns and rich hues. The bohemian look does not make use of neon, pastel and bright colors too. Go for maxi dresses, fringed scarves with lace, sari-like dresses, strappy flat sandals, bejeweled footwear or suede boots in the evenings and for daytime looks, opt for casual or short dresses with flat sandals or printed tunic tops with your favorite skinny or flared jeans.
- What accessories complement a boho outfit?
Answer: Bohemian jewelry is anything but plain. The best jewelry for this look is filled with beads, stones, gems, shells and wood details. Long necklaces and chunky rings and bracelets are also recommended. Dangling earrings and chandelier earrings with beads, stones, shells, wood and gems suit this style. For footwear, you should look for flat boots with fringe, gladiator sandals, beaded sandals, heels and flats and suede boots. Boho colors are on the warm side—tans, browns, neutral colors, greens, khaki and pale yellows are suggested.
- What hairstyles suit bohemian looks?
Answer: Like the clothing and the jewelry, boho hair is carefree and slightly tousled. If you do not want all that hair on your shoulders, you can tie it up loosely using a clip. Get soft waves using a curling iron. You can also braid your hair—do a side braid or braid smaller random segments first before grouping them all into a bigger braid. Go for hair accessories too—use scarves, gem and beaded pins, headbands, even real flowers on your hair.
