As you all know that The Season Style is also about educating about fashion and style. We come across so many patterns that we are not aware of and what they are called. Such as BOHO Pattern, which is trending for so long but most of you don’t know what exactly this print looks like. In today’s blog post. I am going to tell you all about this pattern and style tips and how can you use it in your day to day life.
History of Boho Pattern
The Boho look, which owed much to the hippie styles that developed in the mid to late sixties, came to popularity after Sienna Miller’s appearance at the Glastonbury Festival in 2004, although some of its features were apparent from photographs of her taken in October 2003 of others living in or around the postal district of W10 (North Kensington), an area of London associated with bohemian culture since the mid-1950s.
By the spring of 2005, boho was almost ubiquitous in parts of London and was invading stores in almost every British high street. Its adherents were sometimes referred to as “Siennas”, this eponym even being applied to Miller herself: “Sienna’s Sienna-ishness”, as Jessica Brinton put it in the Sunday Times in 2007. Features included “float” skirts (notably long white ones), furry gilets, embroidered tunics, cropped jackets, large faux-coin belts, sheepskin (UGG) boots and cowboy boots, baggy cardigans and “hobo bags”. Demand was so great that there were allegations in the following year of some sub-contractors’ having used cheap child labour in India for zari embroidery and beading.
Although boho-chic in the early years of the 21st century represented a definite style, it was not a “movement” nor was it noticeably associated with bohemianism as such. Jessica Brinton saw it as “the tagging and selling of the bohemian dream to the masses for £5.99”. Indeed, the Sunday Times thought it ironic that “fashionable girls wore ruffly floral skirts in the hope of looking bohemian, nomadic, spirited and non-bourgeois”, whereas “gypsy girls themselves … are sexy and delightful precisely because they do not give a hoot for fashion”, By contrast, in the first half of the 20th century, aspects of bohemian fashion were a reflection of the lifestyle itself.
In fact, most of the components of boho had in one way or another, drifted in and out of fashion since the “Summer of Love” of 1967 when hippiedom and psychedelia were at their peak. As journalist, Bob Stanley put it, “the late 1960s are never entirely out of fashion, they just need a fresh angle to make them de jour
THE SEASON STYLE TIPS
A Printed Dress
Wear a printed dress with chunky jewelry and wedge sandals for a perfect date night look.
Cross-body bags are awesome because they keep your hands free. This is especially useful at concerts or festivals! A cute, fringy, small- to medium-sized bag would be perfect for this.
You can steal my look; simple Midi dress with BOHO print is perfect for dayout and brunch. Team them up with sling bag and embroidered wedges. You can easily find them from any nearest flee market.
Bohemian Jewelry- Chic Headwraps, Hairbands
My favorite styles are oversized hoops and long hanging feathers
A statement necklace is another great layering piece that easily adds style to an otherwise bland outfit. Look for intricately beaded styles or ones made from pounded metal and epoxy.
Thinnish, elastic hippie headbands look great across your forehead, but I prefer to wear them back an inch or two past my hairline, almost like a halo. This is also a good way to wear a head wrap if the elastic in it is too tight to comfortably wear across your forehead. Cloth styles look great like this too! I am not wearing hair band I have done the braid from small layer of hair from side, Voylla! Simple trick to get Boho hair style.
When it comes to bohemian jewelry, the more unique, the better. Steal my look, Look for original finds at the flea market, incense stores, or even make some of your own! The key is to find pieces made from natural elements like wood, coral, turquoise, feathers, or suede. Just the way I am wearing with this Boho dress: Peacock feather earrings and Peacock chain pendent or necklace.
Boho Casual Look
Tunic tops are perhaps the first thing that comes to mind when someone thinks of bohemian style. Peasant tops aren’t at the peak of their popularity anymore, but are still regarded a staple for girls with earthy styles. Embroidered tops are great for this also! Try checking at any vintage or retro stores in your area for whimsical originals.
If wrinkled cotton or embroidery is too loud for your taste, go for a basic t-shirt type tunic. Add a vest and skinny jeans and you’re ready to go!
For all you Brand Lover, steal my look: Only Boho Jacket, Only Embroider tee and Only Distressed Jeans and Jewelry from Koovs.
