Bashing Boho Myths

There are a lot of myths circulating bohemian fashion. This post will bash most of the preconceptions you have about this unique style.

  • Myth- Bohemians Only Wear Earthy Tones:
    • A Simple Myth-Bashing Boho Outfit 
    • The Truth: Brown, green, and white are classic colors for a bohemian to have in his or her closet but not  the only ones. As the world is more than one color your wardrobe can be too!
  • Myth-Bohemians Only Wear Flowing, Draping or Loose-Fitting Clothes:
    • The Truth: No matter what style you have, in a well-balanced closet you need structured or fitted clothes such as a blazer or even a simple tee-shirt. Too many flowing, draping or loose-fitting clothes create a sloppy look EVERYONE should avoid.
  • Myth- Bohemians Layer A Lot of Clothes at the Same Time:
    • The Truth: Layering clothes does not make an outfit boho. Focus more on prints and accessories.
  • Myth- Bohemians Love Greasy and Unkempt hair:
    • The TruthAgain, no style really promotes messiness! Everyone should take care of themselves! This includes hair!
  • Myth- Being Bohemian Means Always Wearing Maxi Skirts and Maxi Dresses:
    • The Truth: You can be Bohemian in jeans, shorts or any other bottom or top. Just remember to add a shirt with a boho print or chunky jewelry.
