Nicole Richie makes boho-chic look so effortless and fun - she really knows how to put a boho look together - everything from the hair, to her jewelery to her accessories!
I have to admit that my favourite Boho-Chic Icon is Sienna Miller. SHe really brought this style to the fore-front and she makes the style look not only effortless, but truely 'chic' - she looks sexy and unique with a bohemian flair, is a way that not everyone can! She has taken bohemian and made it her own,which is what I think the real trick to achieving boho-chic is. Its not about trying to look like a hippy or buying all bohemian clothing and wearing it from head to toe - its about adopting a style that is unique to you - its about being fearless when you experiement with the boho style and making it yours vs trying to copy a look - this is what makes boho chic so fun and original!!!
I love this outfit that Sienna Miller has on - especially the belt and top with those jeans - sometimes all it takes is a few boho inspired accessories and you've taken a look from blah to unique - I find that many stores now carry boho-chic inspired accessories, as they are so fun to create looks with, I know that Fossel makes amazing belts, jewelery and purses that are very boho-style-inspired!
Bohemian style purses are so amazing. I've found that some of the best boho-style purses are found at yoga shows or vintage markets. Yoga shows in particular have an amazing variety of purses with cool inscriptions, quotes, OM symbols etc - I also love ethnic inspired purses and love to go into stores where they sell authentic Indian or South Asian clothing - I have found amazing scarves and jewelery at these stores - also its cool to go into various decorating stores and adding some boho flair to your house/appartment as well - anything unique is true to boho style!!!
As I mentioned before, summer is the perfect time to add that boho-chic flair - check out HandM - they often carry boho-chic elements and don't be scared to play around with a look - try layering something that you wouldn't have previously thought of, or wearing a cool cowboy boot with an ethnic print dress - add a pair of aviators and you are boho-ready!!!
Last but not least, how can I talk about boho-chic style without talking about the makeup look that goes with it! The boho chic look, just like with the clothes, is truely unique. Once again, Nicole Richie is a great inspiration to use for this look. Its about creating a natural look with a hint of drama, usually with a soft, smokey eyemakeup look, a pop of colour on the cheeks and a natural, kissable lip. I find the look is all about having that sexy, mesmorizing eye, with a pretty nude lip - boho chic makeup for me is very 'sexy' - its not overly natural and its not overly dramatic - its somewhere in between, with an air of mystery and sensuality!!!
I hope that you liked this post about boho chic - I am going to work on creating a boho-chic makeup look so stay tuned!!!
