STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sweet Bohemian Summer

Summer is all about being carefree, spontaneous and free-spirited. What better way to express that than through fashion? Although it has been in style for decades, originating from the hippie and flower child era, bohemian style has really been making a comeback in recent years. It is fun and youthful, but unlike many trends among teens and young adults, it is rather soft and understated. It features neutrals and lighter colors, peace and love, fringe, braids and flowers—a lot of flowers.

People have been incorporating more boho-chic pieces into their wardrobe, whether it be a funky fringe purse or a colorful flower crown. I absolutely adore bohemian style, because it is light, flowy and comfortable. It allows you to play with a variety of textures, but look totally effortless. Plus, it is super easy to transition from day to night, or from season to season. It is an easy style to adapt to, and it is ideal in these sunny summer months.

I spotted this Fashionista after her shift at Anthropologie, and I immediately fell head over heels for her outfit. She pulled off the boho-chic look so well, and it looked so natural on her. By sticking with simple black leggings, she allowed the focus of the outfit to be on her adorable blue tunic. She also sported a pair of neutral but totally fierce nude flat caged sandals, and a simple brown leather bag with gold detail on the handle. Both of these pieces are neutral and soft, but still stand out and make a statement, which is the epitome of bohemian style. Lastly, she kept the jewelry simple with a few gold bangle bracelets and a classic gold watch.

Looking to incorporate more bohemian pieces into your closet? Be sure to look for caged or gladiator sandals, a couple of floral tunics and a few fun headbands. Pair a flower crown with loose curls, beach waves or a gorgeous blonde ombre look like this Fashionista did!
