A Little Boho Goes A long Way

While the boho look is nothing new, it has experienced a resurgence in popularity recently with the help of some of today’s hottest celebrities (Nicole Richie, Drew Barrymore and Sienna Miller just to name a few).  Best of all, there’s no need to be a size 2 to get the boho vibe…something I know from personal experience!   Check out some of my tips on how to incoroporate a little boho into your Spring wardrobe with pieces from one of my favorite plus size fashion stores, Simply Be.

 

While the boho trend can be a tricky style to nail because it straddles the messy and overly sloppy look, the key is moderation.  There’s no need to wear it from head to toe (and for that matter there’s no need to wear any trend from head to toe). Below are a few tips:

A favorite way to add a little boho to your everyday look is a big, slouchy hobo bag There are a variety of hobo bags to choose from without breaking the bank.

Slouch Bag – $45

Scarves provide a simple and bold way to give an outfit that unstructured yet classy vibe.  There are a ton of lightweight scarves that are perfect for the warmer weather.

Scarf – $24

A maxi dress is an excellent and comfy option to get the boho look – particularly when paired with a blazer or leather jacket. The dress provides the boho part, and the jacket pulls it all together.

Maxi Dress – $73

Jewelry is the easiest and most fool proof way to add a little boho to your style.  Whether it’s long beaded chains, bangles or a pair of chandelier earrings you can’t go wrong.  Pair them with a white shirt to the office or with a tee during the day.

Bangles – $24

When it comes to shoes, the possibilities are endless.  A pair of slouchy boots, wedge heels, or braided sandals immediately come to mind.

Peep Toe Bootie – $57

So, whether your style is classic, modern, preppy or just straight up trendy, why not add a little boho to your look?

Love the way Chloe Sevigny perfectly combines the elegance of a scalloped Chloe blazer and cut off shorts. The look is extremely “leggy” and sexy but can easily be toned down with a pair of skinny jeans or a denim skirt (examples shown in widget).
