Modern Boho Chic Google the words ‘bohemian fashion’ and you’ll be bombarded with images of lasses with flowing locks sporting crotchet ponchos, paisley prints, plenty of tassels and swinging tooled leather handbags. However, to achieve a modern take on boho style you needn’t look like you’ve just escaped from a hippie commune.


ook to the dictionary and a Bohemian is described as someone who is unconventional, nonconformist, unorthodox, offbeat, experimental and artistic. Keep these key principals at the forefront of your mind when putting together the ultimate boho chic outfit and you’re bound to hit the mark. Layering is a key ingredient in creating the boho look, but be wary of going overboard with too many layers, long lengths or swamping your figure with shapes that overwhelm. Nip baggy styles in with a belt, and if in doubt, take one thing off before walking out the door. The boho colour palette is firmly grounded by earthy hues and tends to be warm and rich. Think muddy browns, sandy creams, and olive greens. Use these colours as a foundation and build on them with metallic gold or brass, and add bold splashes of colour for interest. Inject one standout hue as an accent like fuchsia or scarlet. Boho style is influenced by all corners of the world, so consider adding some flavour to your outfit with some exotic ethnic elements. Look to nomadic cultures for the various types of colour, pattern, fabric, and decorative embellishments that could inject some character into your personal take on boho chic. Create your own unique personal style by adding treasured heirloom pieces of jewellery or other accessories. Either raid your mother’s or grandmother’s closet for inspired pieces or embark on an op shop mission where you’re destined to unearth some gems to complete your outfit. Dressing to reflect your personality or to simply express your mood is all about having fun, breaking the rules, and above all, being confident in the way you wear it. Create the look. Love it, wear it, own it.
