Bohemian Chic

If you haven't already noticed, the Bohemian look is one of the hottest trends of the moment. Inspired by gypsies, ethnic patterns and the '70s hippie scene, the boho trend is all about looking like you just threw on some clothes without thinking. African, Indian and Asian prints are combined with western pieces that allow you to mix and match clothes to create your own unique look. It's comfortable, earthy and feminine. To be a bohemian beauty, you'll need to put away those tight clothes. Skirts are the star of this fashion trend, so look for peasant or prairie skirts in solid colors (think whites/ivories, chocolates and teals) or ethnic-inspired prints, which you can wear with plain, fitted tanks and flip flops. If you're not into skirts, then pair your jeans with embroidered tops or floaty tunics. And don't worry about overdoing it - bohemian clothes look great with layered accessories so pile on some long necklaces, stones, turquoise and chunky bracelets, wrap a funky belt around your waist and step out in boots or beaded sandals.
