Boho chic fashion trend is back!! For those of us who are interested in history(yes I find it fascinating!!), its inspired by Bohemian lifestyle or the hippie movement of 1960s and 1970s. The styles are generally casual but of late we see more dressy versions as well. Thanks to certain designers like Rochas, Missoni, Tommy Hilfiger, Valentino you will see boho chic clothes throughout the year.
This time the bohemian inspired look is making a comeback in a large scale and is quite dominant in 2015 spring trend. Bohemian fashion buy online has made a return and is a prominent search term for women around the world.
A return of this trend is also evident in all social networks — people keep posting and sharing photos of Bohemian styles on their Pinterest, Tumbler boards. Embracing typical kaleidoscopic prints, flowy feminine silhouette, maxi dresses, layers, gathers, fringe etc. The boho trend this year has incorporated certain changes and reshaped itself before making an appearance.
Here are some essentials about Bohemian fashion that you need to know:
- When pastel tones and floor sweeping maxis come together, you find the romantic part of the Bohemian trend. Find materials which are translucent (not all of us can dare to wear transparent styles) and for colours like pastel shades, beige, pale pink, white, mint green, coral etc. Combine similar colours or contrast using brighter appliques.
- Flowy silhouettes are another striking feature of the boho trend. Try and choose dresses which have naturally flowy drape and not too excessive and may have psychedelic or ethnic prints. Lace goes well with Bohemian dresses as well.
- A revival of the 60s and 70s fashion trends would be incomplete without tie and dye and mismatched prints. As patterns and colours clash over flowy skirts and ruffled necklines, the casualness of Bohemian lifestyle comes out in its true colours. Vivid prints in kaleidoscopic shapes are also important features of the boho trend – prints take inspiration from tribal culture and motifs. You can balance this extravagance of colours by wearing flats and gladiator sandals.
No matter what fashion trends are in, you need to feel comfortable. If you like more fitted clothes then choose items with less volume. Dense colours and bright prints can also make a good Boho statement. Remember the underlying concept of the Bohemian style is freedom, chic and casual .
