A bohemian look is always fresh for summer. If you want to rock a carefree, feminine, earthy look this year, here are six wardrobe essentials you need. For some inspiration, see what boho-chic celebrities wear, such as Nicole Richie, Sienna Miller, and Vanessa Hudgens.
A Floppy Hat
A floppy hat is an essential in any woman’s wardrobe. A straw one is best for warmer temperatures. Wear one to events such as picnics, festivals and farmers markets. If you live in a colder area, try a felt one to keep you warm.
A Boho Blouse
Wearing boho blouses is a must during the warmest months of the year. Try an airy off-the-shoulder blouse, a prairie top, or a lightweight tank top. Tunics work especially well with leggings. Boho blouses keep you cool and comfortable even in the hottest months.
Lightweight Skirts or Pants
Lightweight skirts and pants can be appropriate in a variety of places, from a more casual office to when you are dancing at a music festival. Basic maxi skirts wear well with a flannel, chambray shirt or simple shirt or tank. The same goes for pants, and summer is the perfect time to break out some with a small print.
Footwear that you can wear with multiple outfits is best. Try leather or suede ankle boots, gladiator or lace-up sandals, knee-high suede boots or pairs with tassels. Ankle boots are great because you can wear some pairs to class, work, dates, days out with friends and everywhere in between. Plus, they can be dressed up or down.
Accessories add flair to any boho outfit. Try oversized earrings, like with tassels or hoops, headbands, woven bracelets or shiny chain necklaces. Earthy belts, such as those that are thin and braided, or small rings with stones can make your style stand out. Just be sure to only wear a few at a time.
A cross-body bag or a hobo purse is just what you need to store your essentials. Look for materials such as suede, leather and denim. A cross-body bag is ideal for days when you are on the go and at events. If you get an over-sized purse, get one with a shoulder strap.
Wear these pieces and spread the peace and love without breaking the bank. Since a lot of boho pieces are lightweight, you will be able to be chic and cool, even as the temperatures rise.
