Cue the fringe, flower headbands, denim cutoffs and crop tops: festival season is in full swing and most Fashionista’s looks have started to take on a hippie, boho feel. With arms full of bracelets, flowing maxi skirts and rounded sunglasses, this coachella-inspired style is carefree, effortless and cool without looking too collected or planned.
Is going with the flow not your wardrobe attitude? Couldn’t imagine wearing flowers in your hair? With the right prints, fabrics and jewelry it’s simple to achieve a boho look without compromising your neat, put together aesthetic.
This Fashionista personifies casual with an chic look accented with boho details and accessories. She rocks black and olive printed flowing pants cuffed at the ankle with a white lace bandeau and a white mesh tank top. The pant’s bold oriental-inspired print and the polyester material give the look an easy feel and the cuffed ankle gives the pant a modern attitude with a prominent shape. You can achieve a similar aesthetic with a smaller print like these Forever 21 high-waisted tribal print pants or a bolder cuff pattern like these black and white native print pants. The white mesh tank, like this Tylie top, continues the outfit’s simplicity with a light fabric and a non-constricting shape. Paired with a lace bandeau, it adds a hint of feminine flare and edge.
This Fashionista completes her look with brown fringed thong sandals like these, a gold spiked necklace similar to this Baublebar bib necklace, a gold cuff and a black beaded wrap-around bracelet. The combination of fringe, the neutral colors and prominent spiked necklace continue the boho theme but with a subtle touch.
College is the time to explore trends and style types, but that doesn’t mean you have to abandon your own style. Picking pieces with the right prints, colors and fabrics paired with accessories and shoes will allow you to experiment while staying true to yourself.
