Bohemian style type

You can’t be a bohemian in tight clothes. It just doesn’t work. You have to be able to move and dance and climb.
— Diane Von Furstenberg
 

You are:

Relaxed and liberal. You like to seem natural and easygoing. Free-spirited style. You have a carefree, easy vibe about you. You look like you just walked off the beach because of your relaxed vibe. You love romantic vacation spots.

Look:

Earthy, ethnic-inspired look. High-fashion meets low-key.

You want:

Comfort in everything, especially your shoes—if you do heels, it’s platforms or wedges.

Comfortable in:

A pair of jeans and T-shirt with funky accessories.

CLOTHING TYPES:

Breezy gowns and tops, skirts, bell bottoms. Clothing with volume. Flowy and airy materials. Mix of patterns, shapes, natural textures like crochet, linen, velvet, silk, denim, knits, leather, suede, fur. Easy, live-in separates. Layered looks. Global influences.

we recommend:

Colors:

Lots of white, black, gray, earth tones—brown, tan, denim, burgundy, hunter green—and beachy colors like turquoise and coral. Clothing can be mostly neutral colors which allow you to show off ornate accessories that reflect your free spirit. Eye-catching prints such as floral, stripes, paisley, tie dye, geometric, and colorful fur.

Great pieces to invest in:

Jeans!, flared jeans, denim cutoff shorts, simple or printed flowing maxi skirts, plaid shirts, peasant blouses, tunic T-shirts and blouses, oversized sweaters, knit cardigans and sweaters, flowy kimonos, versatile vests (fur, denim), little jackets, an easy and flowy cape for a coat, shearling coats, long coats, printed maxi dresses.

we recommend:

Hippie chic purse (like distressed leather, fringe, slouchy suede, tiny cross-body, oversized hobo bag), oversized pattern scarves, sandals when it’s warm, gladiator sandals, ankle or knee boots when it’s chilly, chic head wraps and headbands, wide brim hats, floppy brimmed hat, big sunglasses, aviator sunglasses, armful of gold bangles, chunky earthy jewelry, ornate jewelry.

KEY:

Don't look sloppy—your body frame can get overwhelmed by big shapes or textures so make sure to have at least one part of your outfit fitted/tighter to your shape. Also don't let your outfit be overwhelmed by pattern/color by incorporating simpler neutral pieces with the interest pieces. Limit your outfit to no more than 3-4 colors.

JEWELRY:

Lots of ornate baubles with stones, beads, feathers—in metals or colors like turquoise, red, green, blue.

we recommend:

MAKEUP:

Natural, glowing dewy bare-faced look, or smoky eye look with browns/golds and pinks. Bronzer for a sun kissed glow.

HAIR:

Beach waves, loose & flowy styles, bed head, disheveled braids such as a fishtail or a crown braid, not too perfect parting. Hair accessories like a flowery headband, clip-on feathers, headscarves, hats.

ELEGANT:

Flowing, ornate dresses with prints, texture, shine, embroidery!

CAREER:

You are free-spirited and love flexibility. Great as freelancer in creative professions, or jobs where you travel.
