How to do Modern, Grown Up Boho

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:

Fringed & Embellished Bags:

My Studded Fringe Bag – reduced!

Suede Fringed Bag

Pom Pom Leather Bag

Moroccan Pom Pom Clutches

(Moroccan Wedding Blanket)

Suede fringe bag

Blue studded bag

Beaded bag


Statement Jewellery:

My Embellished Scarf Choker – Similar

Large Silver Ring

Stacking Rings

Cord choker

Aztec choker

Chandelier choker

My Sterling Silver Bracelets – Similar Here

My Large Gemstone Ring

My Silver Statement Necklace – Similar Here


 Layered Jewellery:

 

My Rings

My Bracelets – Similar 

Rose Gold Pendants 

Earrings

My Moonstone & Pink Quartz Necklaces

My Turquoise & Gold Necklaces

My Gold Cuff

Balinese Rings & Bracelets

Druzy Bracelets – Similar 

 


Tassels & Beaded Jewellery:

Moroccan Clutch

Tassel Earrings

Pom Pom Sandals

Choker Necklace

Tasselled Earrings

Beaded Necklace

 


 Embellished Scarves & Belts:

 

My Scarf, Vintage – An Alternative 

My Corset Belt – Similar

Moroccan Kilim Clutch

Floral Corset Belt


 Statement Boots & Sandals:

 

My Floral Boots

(Moroccan Wedding Blanket)

My Black Suede Boots

Embroidered Sandals

My Red Western Boots

Western Cut Out Boots

Dune Cowboy Boots

Fringed Boots

 


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:

My Beaded Fringe Top

Moroccan Clutch

(Moroccan Wedding Blanket)

Maxi Dress

Bikini

Sheer Maxi

 

So that’s it for my boho inspiration, whether you like full on gypsy or the odd modern piece, I hope you liked my picks!

I’m constantly adding to my jewellery as I’m such a magpie and can’t resist a bit of colour or sparkle!

I have a small online jewellery shop, Wild Sunday Rose, so some of my jewellery is linked to that as I often wear my own pieces….My handbag fetish is a whole other thing entirely and I could have written a whole blog just about them – but the shopping research for that would be very dangerous! 😉

    I am a huge fan of statement jewelry and love the pieces that you laid out in this blog. And rings, while I absolutely love them I never end up buying any for some reason. Necklaces, however, I am all over.

  12. June 1, 2017 / 9:11 am

    I love ALL of these!!! Need to incorporate a few more of these styles into my wardrobe. The one I’ve been true to for years is stacking jewellery, love it! xx

  13. June 2, 2017 / 6:39 am

    I’ve passed on the details of your blog to my friend, she will absolutely love this!

  14. June 6, 2017 / 9:23 pm

    Had no idea boho is such an old concept, I guess hippies are to blame for that. Or simply me being an idiot who thinks it all started in late 60s! Anyway, lovely pictures, although my everyday looks are usually sharper and less romantic, I absolutely adore the chokers and those cowboy sandal boots- very cool indeed! Would actually love to get those for myself! Xx
