Boho Accessories: The 10 Styling Tips You NEED To Know

Whilst the more minimalist fashionista would gasp at the idea of wearing more than one almost-invisible necklace, the bohemian babe is all about maximal-ism! Combine chunky coin necklaces with printed hair scarves and finish with enough bangles to fill a small boutique.

The gypsy girl is anything but a wallflower, so combine as many metals, chunky stones and printed fabric as your wandering heart desires. Now that’s how to make a statement!

If you’re after a beautiful bohemian printed scarf for that perfect finishing touch, we’ve got exactly what you’re looking for!

2. THIS Necklace Equation

We’ve all seen those Pinterest photos of the tanned beach babe with that perfectly layered necklace. Before you go browsing away for that perfect boho necklace, I’ll let you in on a little secret: it’s probably already in your jewelry box!

Boho accessories are all about layering and this layered necklace can be created by layering up three single pieces. The trick here is to choose necklaces that are the right length to compliment each other.

Just follow this equation and you’re on the right track:

Choker + cleavage + belly button= banging boho babe!
Funnily enough, this equation works with a variety of jewelry pieces, from statement gypsy necklaces, to stone adorned body chains. Even the more minimalist gypsy can rock this look by combining fine, gold pieces.

There’s an arm party happening and your whole jewellery box is invited! Get your gypsy on by layering on statement burnished and gold bangles, then cleverly adding in pops of bright color. Extra points for bringing in shades to compliment your outfit!

As for the rings, keep them chunky, silver and exotic! If you are looking for a quirky addition to your arm party, try tying a printed silk scarf around your wrist! Our floral paisley silk scarf will really pop!

4. Opt For Earrings For Your Face Shape

Although bohemian fashion is rebellious by nature, there a few rules you should follow when it comes to boho accessories. You have probably heard about sunglasses and hairstyles for your face shape, but you may be surprised to know to certain earring styles compliment certain face shapes.

Here’s a basic guide of what you should be going for…

Long/ Oval Face

boho-earrings-long-face

Those with a longer face shape should look to add volume to the ears. Statement studs, short round drop earrings and hoops are your BFFS. Avoid anything long and fine, as these will emphasize the length of your face.

Heart Shaped Face

A heart shape face consists of a wide forehead, narrow chin and high cheekbones. As your bone structure is #goals, show it off! Longer earrings with a lot of volume around the chin will make your face appear more symmetrical, whilst still allowing you to rock that bone structure!

Square Face

Those with a square face should opt for long, fine earrings. Chunky earrings will tend to emphasize your face shape.

Round Face

A round face can pull of any earring style, so have fun and go for crazy, oversized drops!

5. Put Your Best Foot Forward

Cliche puns aside, the barefoot bohemian look calls for an abundance of foot accessories! Layer on barefoot sandals, toe rings, anklets and metallic tattoos for something truly magical. Just when you thought that an anklet was the only option…

6. Go For Ethnic

Whatever boho accessories you choose to throw on, make sure that they have some element of overseas ethnicity to them to make it look authentic. Whether you choose Indian-inspired elephant rings, or Native American style feathers or symbols, there is something so undeniably gypsy-chic about the exotic.

7. Invest In A Handmade Bag

Whether you opt for a stunning crochet shoulder bag, or a carved leather masterpiece, invest in an artisan bag to really stand out from the crowd.

For a quick injection of boho chic to an old bag, simply tie a boho printed scarf onto the handle! Our tropical floral scarf will give your handbag an effortless, flowing edge.

8. Tan + White Nails

Perhaps actual hippies will totally tut-tut at this suggestion, but there’s nothing more lovely than a tan, white nails and an influx of layered chunky jewelry. Give your skin a Summer edge by using fake tan.

9. Be A Queen, Wear A Crown

Print Trends: New York Fashion Week S/S 2017

Print trends are coming out of fashion week faster than we can keep up with! As New York Fashion Week, the creme-de-la-creme of the sartorial world, comes to a close, we are left with a stunning glimpse of the trends that will be taking over our wardrobes next Spring/Summer.

Florals were in abundance, from Eastern European style folklore at Tory Burch, to ditsy and dainty daisies at Rebecca Taylor. All of these florals, together with artistic hippy prints and saucy stripes, proves one thing: retro is still in!

It’s undeniable that the runways have a huge effect on both our wardrobe and our home decor, and believe me when I say that there is a lot to get excited about!

To mark the end of New York Fashion Week, we show you the print trends you will be craving in your wardrobe and home decor in Spring/Summer 2017!

(All photos are sourced from vogue.co.uk)

The Print Trend: Folk Florals

We have seen the shift towards bohemian prints in both fashion and interior design over the last few seasons and Spring/Summer 2017 saw this trend explode into a literal plethora of folk-y florals. Out of all the print trends, folk florals are certainly the one to watch!

Tory Burch (above) was a folk fairytale! Contrasting patterns of floral and paisley were weaved together in wanderlust-inducing wrap dresses. The more feminine side of folk-law was present on asymmetric dresses, that were embellished and printed to utter perfection.

Alice & Olivia‘s designs came with a side of Elizabethan elegance, with the kind of high a-line shapes and embroidered florals we would expect to see on Anne Boleyn. Pair this with cute butterflies and scalloped lace and get ready to embrace your feminine side.

If Scotch & Soda isn’t the epitome of folk, we don’t know what is! Flow-y gypsy skirts were teamed with floral embroidered waistcoats and slipper shoes. Embroidered stars screams from out-of-this-world metallics that take us back to the 60s at one glance!

The Print Trend: Stripes

Due to the timeless nature of stripes, they make an appearance every season without fail. This season, they came in a plethora of clashed ways. Stripes headed in different directions were combined to sculpt the body and create movement. Different colors were combined in close proximity and spread across garments. It’s time for the new era of the stripe.

Whistles combined different colored stripes to create statement ‘super stripes’. Add fringing and interesting textures and here you have evidence that stripes are anything but boring!

Alice & Olivia cleverly combined horizontal and vertical stripes to slim, or add volume to the body. The result? Interesting, feminine shapes. The striped hair scarves look like they were created for cruise season!

Red Valentino was all kinds of oceanic swirls and vibrant rainbows. Waves of color were clashed with sheer fabrics, leather and suede. How cute is that handbag? It’s like a mini ode to nature!

Rebecca Taylor presented a ditsy floral dress for every kind of girl. The tomboy can embrace florals by baby steps in sporty, shirt dresses. On the other hand, the romantics at heart can live their dreams in enough frills and florals to put Laura Ashley to shame.

Why You Need A Printed Scarf This Summer

Let me guess, when you saw the title of this post, you let out a little snicker? Scarves for Summer? Have I lost my mind? Actually, no! A printed scarf is seriously handy when it comes to Summer.

Don’t believe me? I bet you five dollars that I can convince you. Here’s why you need a printed scarf in your life this Summer…

 

It’s The Beach All-Rounder

Is it a printed blanket? Is it a shawl? Is it a sarong? Nope, it’s a scarf!

Sarcasm and infomercial references aside, a scarf is like one of those crazy multi-tools your Dad has when it comes to the beach.

Exhibit A:

Whole rules the world beach? Girls! Recreate Bey’s tropical beach cover-up by wrapping around a lightweight printed scarf.

Go for Oceanic blue with our soft and pretty paisley wool scarf.

Exhibit C

We’ve all been in that predicament where we’ve arrived at the beach with only one towel and lying on a wet towel is about as fun as pruning a rose bush with bare hands. Luckily, it’s scarf to the rescue! Your scarfy friend will keep away pesky sand flecks and will reserve your much loved spot on the beach. Score!

When it comes to a scarf for a beach blanket, I recommend using a dark colored one in case it gets grubby. The geometric print scarf is perfect.

It’s A Bad Hair Day: Totally Disguised

If i had a dime for every time my post-beach hair looked like a salty, greasy mess, I’d be as rich Kimmy K! Leave the bulky, heavy hair products at home and cover up that ‘do with a printed scarf!

The Nonchalant Bandana
