Share

The bohemian look is one that never goes out of trend. Bohemian is a style with roots alluding to peace, women's liberation, and a whole lot of free love. This Spring 2016 is all about bohemian fashion or as now called, boho-chic. Bohemian fashion revolves around embracing a free-spirited attitude. The best part about bohemian fashion is that you truly get to personalise it and make it unique to your own individual style. Vanilla Luxury tells you how you can add the bohemian-chic touch to your wardrobe this season.

When it comes to styling your hair, the options are limitless. Loose, bouncy and flowing hair or braids, but also if you are not having a great hair day, you can always hide those locks under a floppy brimmed hat or accessorise with headscarves and head bands.

Makeup

The reason why the bohemian look has had a following for decades now is because of the versatility it offers for all occasions. Now a day look will be totally different from a night look but the essentials remain the same. When it comes to boho makeup, less is always more. The point is to bring out your natural glow so play with neutral tones and stick to sun-kissed looks, soft-pink lips and a light brown smudged eyeliner.

Shoes

If there is a type of footwear that screams out bohemian chic, it is wrap sandals. They are God’s gift to every woman – they are light on the toes, yet they still look polished and fashionable. When choosing your wrap sandals remember to look for styles that are easy to slip on and off. There is nothing more troublesome than a pair of shoes that take five minutes to get on and off.

Free People always carries a wide range of wrap sandals, visit their website and shop online to have your wrap sandals fix delivered to Singapore.
