Master the boho look in 4 easy steps

Your guide to dressing boho chic according to 3 Aussie bohemian beauties and where to shop the trend. 

Ok, we can all agree that Kate Moss is the ultimate style icon for boho chic. That wedding dress, those Glastonbury outfits, pretty much her entire Instagram feed. But while she’ll always wear the daisy flower crown for queen bohemian (I’m sure there’s a pun in there somewhere) these three Aussie beauties are the new kids floating around the block.

Say hello to Inka Williams, Sahara Ray and Mimi Elashiry.

Collectively they’ve got almost two million followers on Instagram and more than enough photos to make you want to pack up shop and live a free spirited life in Bali, this is the trio of modern day bohemians.

When it comes to their wardrobe, think tie dye and paisley prints, dainty lace and soft suedes, long maxi skirts and flower-anything. That 70s style is back in a big way. Scroll down for your guide to mastering the bohemian look.

1. Miss-match the prints.

Put your paisley next to Aztec and animal. While you’re at it, miss-match the colour palette too.



Shop the look:

Paisley Peasant Blouse
Chill Out Dress
Princess Polly
Sass & Bide The Ticket Tank

2. Add in all of the textures.

Shaggy faux fur, soft tan suede, fringing, chambray and denim, delicate silks and crochet. Oh-so-dreamy, they all go together.



Shop the look:

Shaggy Cropped Coat
New Look Suedette Skirt
June Fringe Shoes

3. Layer it up.

A maxi, a singlet, and another singlet over the top? Perfect. Add a belt and pile on the beads. Mix ‘n’ match those textures and you’re all set.



Shop the look:

Awash in Stripes Pullover
Free People
Tigerlily Jumelle Pants
Camilla and Marc Summit Dress

4. Always accessorise.

Finish the look with mixed metals or an armband, metallic tattoos, bangles and beads. Braid your hair and add in a feather or a flower crown. Voila! You’re on your way to boho chic.



Shop the look:

Rusty Birdy Hat
Housten Belt
