Boho is back, but there’s so much more to it than dream catchers and strappy sandals. This relaxed style trend brings a whimsical feel to everyday fashion and hints at an unconventional way of life. While in the past, the term ‘boho chic’ may have bastardised the origins of this free-spirited way of dressing, boho in 2018 brings back a more environmental focus to the much-loved trend. This time around the boho trend is here is to re-inspire us to break away from the conventional, to encourage slower fashion and invest in authentically and ethically produced clothing.
In terms of accessories, the boho style trend leans towards a rather lavish amount of items. The trick is to layer your accessories which means including everything from bracelets, sunglasses, and necklaces to belts, earrings, pearls and headbands all in one outfit. Incorporate natural tones and colours and avoid neon shades. Stacked bracelets is definitely one of the key parts of this trend. Have fun with it by mixing materials, whether it is gold, leather, stones, it doesn’t matter. The larger and more colourful the better.
