The bohemian look originated in the 1960's Hippie culture and is a popular today as it was then.

Drawing inspiration from all over the world adding texture and richness, it has something for every fashionista. With neutral colours as its base making is easy to add colours to key pieces. Layering is key so start with your basics and layer it with pieces like cardigans, jewellery or shawls.

But remember just because the elements of boho style is so relaxed and layered, it does not mean that you have to look like a sloppy hippie. It is always best to keep it simple and the layering to a minimum if you are unsure. Try to keep it feminine and chic by mixing oversized with fitted pieces to balance out your look

Layer on the accessories sunglasses, necklaces, belts and jewellery, a lavish amount of accessories are key to this look. Never combine more than four shades of colours, if your look is already eye catching tone it down with grey's, beige or brown colours. Be sure to add touches of your own style personality and have fun.

Bohemian summer is all about lazy and chilled out days going from music festival to the beach.

It's girly yet stylish!!!

Here are some of my favourite boho looks for summer.

Flower Power

The Boho look is all about being natural and earthy, so floral prints are always a winner, be it that you are wearing a flower crown or a flirty floral print top or the latest trends in floral print shorts or playsuits. Make sure to incorporate florals into your boho look and show your love for the earth.

Gypsy Nights

What is more bohemian then Gypsies, with their flowing sleeved tops, colourful scarfs, skimming skirts, lace, large dangling earrings and beaded jewellery. Show off your carefree side with flamboyant and vibrant colours. Let your hair flow naturally or tie a scarf loosely around it.


Crop Tops

Although not a traditional boho look. Showing just a little bit of skin making your look sexy but still keeping the signature laidback feeling. Go for a loose fitting or a super cute crochet crop top and pair it with a maxi skirt or a palazzo pants.

Accessories and footwear

Head wraps, turbans colourful scarves, vintage style sunglasses and Indian style bangles and African style neckpieces as well as gypsy earrings are ideal pieces to finish of any bohemian look. Accessories can also be a great way to add splashes of colour to your look and to tie all the pieces together. It can be as simple as a flower crown paired with a fringed crochet top with a pair of shorts or a flowy maxi skirt.


This is defiantly not a look for stiletto style heels so keep it flat with ballet pumps, or Ethnic inspired sandals like Greek, Roman or African styles. Cowboy boots in matching shades to your look, are perfect.

Boho is not about throwing everything in your closet together that is fringed or tie-dyed, but is about mixing pieces together, so that it reflects your personality. Remember is all about a chilled "flower power" vibe and being you.
