When I was growing up, I remember playing dress up with all my mom’s clothes from the 70s. The brightly colored scarves and floppy hats with feathers were always left scattered across her bedroom floor. My favorite piece that she saved from this era was her peasant top. In High School, I would sneak into her closet and “borrow it” hoping that she wouldn’t notice it was gone. This became my signature look for years... loose fitting boho top with flared low waisted jeans and the perfect fedora, absolute perfection!
If you look up the term “Boho” as a style it’s most closely associated with the hippies of the ‘60s and ‘70s. The truth is Boho encompasses so many different time periods and subcultures of the past and present. Coachella and other music festivals of the past few years have put this trend in the forefront and it’s not going anywhere any time soon.
Almost any outfit can become Boho if you style it right and add just the right amount of flare and personality to it. If you’re not quite sure if this look is for you, try adding some subtle pieces into your everyday look. An easy way to do this is to try pairing up your favorite pair of jeans and tee with a floral kimono. Wear a kimono instead of adding a light sweater or jacket to really freshen up your wardrobe.
There has seriously never been a better time to try the Boho trend. So, with winter officially in the rearview, grab your favorite neck scarf and peasant top the next time you go out shopping with friends.
