You’ve been invited to your friend’s wedding and the invite says that the theme of the day will be boho style. At first glance you might think that this might be difficult for you to find the perfect outfit. But boho style has actually been with us for many a decade now. Starting with the hippie boom in the 1960s, right through to the boho poster girls like Sienna Miller and Kate Moss at Glastonbury circa 2004, boho style has remained a fixture of contemporary fashion.
For a boho wedding, you can look forward to a laid back, and simple day, with a beautiful location with lots of access to the outdoors. It will be informal, with fruity drinks, a rustic menu and hopefully dancing under a sunset sky. But what to wear? Here we have broken down boho chic to make it easy for you to put together the perfect hippie-inspired outfit.
Simple and natural
These are your key words. Keep your make up simple with a glowing natural look. Keep lips neutral and skin dewy. Boho hair is loose, waved, textured and tousled. If you do go for an updo, keep it simple and looking slightly ‘undone.’ Wear sandals or a simple low heel ankle boot.
Colour and prints
Boho chic embraces prints and patterns, especially those inspired by nature. Mix up textures with a floaty cotton dress and a woven shawl to throw on as the sun goes down, or even a faux leather jacket. This might seem at odds with boho, but the style has developed over the years to incorporate more textures and influences, keeping the look contemporary – https://www.cosmopolitan.com/style-beauty/fashion/a47167/boho-wedding-inspiration/.
The boho staple. A dreamy, floaty maxi dress like these AX Paris maxi dresses are the perfect choice. Comfortable and easy, rather than structured and fussy.
You can personalise and modernise the boho look with modern accessories. Floaty maxi dresses with embellishments are bang on trend, or carry a metallic clutch bag. Really drive home the hippie vibe with headbands, sun hats, arms full of bracelets or pretty anklets.
So there we have it, super easy boho style. Remember, keep it floaty, keep it comfortable. Layer up with jackets, crops and shawls, and most of all, relax and have a beautiful boho day.
