Stylewatch: Boho chic!

The sweet stylists at flattered me by answering a topic-question I had suggested: What is Boho? Sure, most of us know Boho is a combination of Bohemian and hippie. But what else do we need to know if we want to emulate the perfect, yet seemingly effortless, style of stars such as the Olsen twins, Sienna Miller or Nicole Richie? Well, in Modcloth stylist’s own words, here it is:


bohoThis week’s fashion dictionary post is dedicated to a style term very close to my heart: Boho. If you’ve done any research on the trend, you’ll know that this term encompasses an entire fashion phenomenon.


Characterized by hippie-or-folk-inspired pieces mixed with a modern twist, Boho-chic (short for Bohemian), embodies easy-to-wear glamour. Peasant skirts, beaded accessories, slouchy tops and casual-yet-stylish shoes are reigning wardrobe staples in the essential Boho closet.

If you’re looking for inspiration, look no further than Sienna Miller. Credited with popularizing the look almost single-handedly, her seemingly effortless outfits, tousled hair, and comfort-minded accessories are quintessential cornerstones of the trend. And it has certainly caught on – Kate Moss, Nicole Ritchie, and Mary-Kate Olsen are often seen sporting bohemian flair.

Want to get the look? Embroidered frocks, hobo bags, or a mixed set of bangles can be paired with almost any ensemble to add a touch of boho to your everyday style. Our Side Saddle PurseLa Pueblacita Blouse, and We Got the Bead Earrings can get you on the fast track to living the boho life (or at least styling for it) this Spring.

Thank you to Sabina for suggesting the topic. I hope this helped! Let me know if you have a fashion term you’d like brought to light. Thanks for reading, and happy shopping.


Yay! How special am I?! 🙂 Thanks again, Modcloth team! I am honored.
