How To: Create Boho Look

What better way to express a carefree outlook than a Bohemian look that really gets you those double takes!

Wikipedia says, in modern usage, the term “Bohemian” is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives. Ergo, a Bohemian look is an artistic expression of “your” laidback Sunday – so go ahead, customise your look for a fun day, or night out.

Be Boho

  • Dress romantic: Let’s begin with what you usually dress like. Jeans and a top, skirts and blouses, jeggings and tees or just a latest-season dress? To create a boho look from a existing wardrobe, firstly choose a unlikely pairing – a formal blouse and calf-length skirt, paired with boots or roman sandals. Or layer a short dress over a long skirt. Or wear a tunic over torn jeggings and layer with an interesting waistcoat or cinch in with a broad belt. Use prints wherever you can – even if it’s interestingly tied scarf or a handkerchief tied at your knee. Think of yourself as a canvas and paint over using clothes as your palette. Blowzy materials are a must.
  • Choose pinks over dark: Make-up – for Bohemians, you can’t do much with browns, blacks or beiges. Go with soft pinks and rose with perhaps a bright or jewel tone as an accent colour. So, use a BB cream to liven up your complexion, but no need to hide those freckles or moles – you are Bohemian today, imperfection is an added charm. Darken your brows with black or brown eyeshadow, and use an outfit shade as an accent colour for your eyeliner. Use multiple coats of mascara. Blush, a pretty pink on the apples of your cheeks is a must and for the lips – you can choose to go matte in pink-red or gloss in peach/coral.
  • No more updos: Let down your hair, literally – curls, waves or straight hair – dress your hair up with an interesting fore-band. Or braid a portion of your hair and use it as a tiara sitting pretty on your crowning glory.

Lastly, accessories – colourful bangles, silver hoops and chunky rings – the janglier the better! Have a boho weekend!
