The Bohemian movement started in Paris in the 1800’s but the style of dress was mostly popularised in the 1960s & 70s.
‘Boho’ tends to refer to people with an artistic vibe and wandering spirit.
From my teenage years as a rocker, to now where I like the latest trends mixed with a bit of a Rock ‘n’ Roll or Boho edge, I’ve always been a lover of that look – hence the name of my blog?! – but how I incorporate the aesthetic into my wardrobe has changed quite a bit and is much more refined nowadays….

With the popularity of festivals, Boho fashion is around even more so …. which is great – but I think if you’re not careful you can look a little overdone or cheap/fancy dress-like!
So with summer approaching (please?!) I thought it would be good to share some ideas on how to incorporate a bit of Boho into your look, whilst remaining modern and chic!
I think the easiest way is with your accessories and the key is:
1. quality & 2. not overdoing it!
So I’ve styled some accessories of my own and added lots of shopping links for similar pieces too:

If you prefer to stick to plainer accessories, the other way to incorporate some Boho is obviously with your clothes – floaty, whimsical pieces or lace, beading and fringing details are perfect for that romantic vibe:
