My outfit today is inspired by the bohemian style or the so called Boho Chic. It is a style identified by the UK fashion media around 2004 and it is basically inspired by the bohemian and the hippie way of dressing. I totally interpret it in a certain way and my version is a bit different. I would say it is more modern and contemporary. However, I still keep some of the key items that are specific for the bohemian style.
The Boho Chic is all about oversized and baggy clothing, but also layered and comfortable. The look usually consists of a maxi dress or a maxi skirt. A typical element is also the pattern – one of the most usual theme for inspiration for the patterns is the ethnic style. To translate this idea through my personal style I decided to wear this beautiful printed smock dress by the brand Boohoo. Its floral and paisley print really reminds me of the Boho Chic.
This style is also all about accessorises – the more the better! I used a gold necklace and a multi pack of gold rings to finish my whole look.
Another key item for that style is the headband – one of the ways to wear them is across your forehead or a bit higher. I have used a normal braided headband because I thought it will make the whole look more subtle.
I really hope you like my transformation of the Bohemian Style and you learned something new for that way of dressing!
The most difficult question, right? What is your personal style? How can you describe your style with several words? Are you thinking about what your style says about you?
Style is not only one’s clothing and fashion appearance but it is a manner and a way to convey your personal message through your look. Style is not only attire, it is the way you talk, move your body, walk, style is your posture. What people don’t realise nowadays is that they are trying to dress trendy and fashionably when all they have to do is dress with style. Style is the courage and the creativity to pick out the right clothes for you out of all the fashionable trends out there. Style is a replication of an individual. It might also be described as a way of communication, making a statement about yourself not with words, but through your clothes. Moreover, you can either attract with your style or you can push away. You can evoke feelings, emotions, inspirations through the way you are dressed up.
I don’t think that a person’s style could be described or defined with several words, at least I can’t describe mine in this way. What I can say about my style of dressing up is that it definitely changes. I love experimenting and I am becoming more and more brave to try out outfits that are more sassy and unusual. I can also say that my style changes with my age. When I was younger I never dared to wear more attractive and unusual outfits as I do today. I also dress depending on the occasion, not depending on my daily mood. I can’t define my style with words like most people are trying to – ‘Classic and elegant’ or ‘Casual and chic’. However, I can categorize it. I came up with several options that do not define or describe your style but classify it.
Then what is your personal style?
Less is more
You are quite minimalistic and trying to keep things simple and sophisticated.
You put together unusual clothes and accessorise to make yourself stand out.
