This morning as I enjoyed my morning coffee while pinning away on Pinterest, I found myself continuing to circle back to the same bridal look: BOHO chic. This got me thinking … is there a flower child somewhere behind the high heels, blonde hair and black leather leggings? Interested in learning more about the history of bohemian fashion, I googled “BOHO fashion” and came across the following definition: “A style of fashion drawing on various bohemian and hippie influences.” Thanks to the Olsen twins, BOHO fashion hit mainstream around 2005.
But, is it more than just a look? Is it a lifestyle or a state of being? Often times a “bohemian” person is an optimist, free spirit and adventurous expressing themselves through fashion.
The internet is overflowing with BOHO wedding looks likely to overwhelm the freest of spirits. I have gathered my favorite looks and made a list on how to obtain the perfect BOHO bridal look:
1. boho HAIR
Whether you wear your hair up or down, make sure it is loose and relaxed. Adding a headband or soft flowers makes it even more beautifully bohemian.
2. boho DRESS
BOHO bridal dresses are soft and flowy yet intricate in a subtle way using lace, fabric, ribbon or soft beading
3. boho ACCESSORIES
Tying in the perfect accessory can make a big statement and is essential to completing your BOHO look
. 4. boho BRIDAL BOUQUET
Think a bridal bouquet has to be white? Think again! Unstructured, loose flowers with pops of color create the perfect BOHO bridal bouquet
5. boho ATTITUDE
Remember to keep a true bohemian attitude on your wedding day to complete the perfect BOHO bridal look … care-free, optimistic and joyful!
