Style Advice of the Week

The warm, carefree days of summer have passed and we’ve transitioned into winter clothing mode. Sheer tops, sandals and cutoff jeans have been replaced with chunky knits, scarves and the ever-present need to cover every exposed piece of skin on the freezing trek to class. While some of us bundle up in bulky coats to combat the cold, this boho beauty dares to bare her eclectic style.

This Fashionista knows how to bring the summer back in the heart of winter and still stay warm in the process. Crop tops have been a summer staple since the ’80s, and have recently made a huge comeback with the rising popularity of high-waisted shorts. The intricate stitching detail on her earthy red shirt screams “hippie” in a subtle way, especially when paired with an open, breezy knit cardigan. This Fashionista chose a cardigan with a longer length; this balances the shortness of her crop top when worn with low-rise jeans.

Accessories accentuate any outfit and are the perfect way to let your personality shine through. Her tasseled headband ties together the boho look—literally. Skinny headbands worn across the forehead emanate a free spirit vibe and look great with almost any hairstyle. This Fashionista opts for a bejeweled one with flowers, which are another classic hippie wardrobe necessity. She channels her inner John Lennon with her rounded aviators, which have a slight curve.

This Fashionista takes a super modern twist on the leather hippie bag look with her oversized Michael Kors purse. It’s sleek and classy, yet totally reminiscent of the large bags boho vagabonds could be seen toting throughout the ’60s and ’70s. If you really want a bag with boho character, try a carpetbag or find a vegan leather bag with fringe.

Easy breezy summer style doesn’t only have to be wearable for only a few warm months. With the right pieces, it is easy to pull off a boho vibe any time of the year!
