STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Boho & Street Chic Dresses

If there is one thing Boulder knows how to do, it’s edgy bohemian dresses. Notorious for being known as a “hippie” or “hipster” town, Boulder definitely knows how to flaunt this look when it’s done right. The oh-so popular trend continues to spread like wildfire over this college campus; and it’s safe to say that no one is complaining! With vibrant prints, flowing shapes and a ‘70s vibe, this trend is here to stay.

The short flowing long sleeve dress look is a particular favorite of mine because it is so versatile in a closet. It works for all seasons throughout the year, which is what makes it such an important staple! For instance, I can wear a long sleeve mini dress and some wedges when it’s warmer; however, when it starts to cool down, I can easily pair it with a pair of patterned tights or skinny jeans with a Chelsea boot. As you know by now, my closet is full of versatility; I strive to find items that I know will correspond with the rest of my wardrobe.

Additionally, despite popular belief, I stand by the fact that a dress is the easiest way to look put together without putting in any effort. I mean, really, how easy is it to throw on a dress? It’s a go-to staple in my day-to-day life when I’m truly feeling a lack of motivation to put together an ensemble. These carefree dresses are a perfect solution for when I’m facing a fashion crisis and have no idea what to wear. Free People and Urban Outfitters have an excellent selection of these sort of styles!

This Fashionista sports this super edgy yet flirtatious Free People drop-waist tunic with a pair of black leather booties, wide-brimmed hat and funky sunglasses. She perfectly executed this trendy look with a bunch of bold pieces that seem as if they were meant to be put together.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “As my favorite designer Yves Saint Laurent once said, ‘Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.’  This Fashionista’s bold boho look paid off—she looks fierce without looking like she’s trying too hard. If you’re nervous about pulling off a new trend, just go for it. If you’re pulling it off, others will definitely notice.”
