STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Boho Babe

June 3rd, 2015 at 2:00am

With Fashionistas everywhere obsessing over music festival looks, like Kylie Jenner’s risqué style at Coachella, it seems that bohemian vibes are completely taking over this summer’s trends. While taking major outfit risks at concerts that you’re actually attending is almost always a good idea, incorporating funky prints and ’70s-inspired fringe into everyday style can be difficult to pull off without looking like a wannabe festival-goer. Bold paisley prints, layering pieces lined with exaggerated fringe and high-neck crop tops were all popular styles displayed on celebrities this festival season and have been making their way into affordable stores across the country ever since.

The trick to transitioning from all-day music rage to casual errand running in the city is to keep your color palette simple and stick to only one statement piece that will catch your peers’ eyes. An easy way to achieve this look is to pick one colorful print or texture that will stand out against the rest of a neutrally colored and relatively simple outfit, in order to not create a look so distracting that it would only be acceptable at the center of an EDM concert. By sticking with only element that makes a big statement, you can completely avoid looking out of place and instead embody a Fashionista that knows exactly how to work this season’s Coachella-inspired trends.

Here, this Fashionista perfectly pairs tribal-printed elastic shorts from Forever 21, a trendy-fitted crop top by H&M, a flowy oversized fringe cardigan also from Forever 21 and super cute sandals by Steve Madden. Together, they create the perfect day time look for someone trying to achieve a boho-vibe without looking over-the-top.
