Drawing on bohemian and hippie influences, boho-chic is the trend that never seems to go away. Thanks to Kate Moss, the fashion style was immensely popular in the early 2000s, and it shows no signs of slowing down, especially when festival season comes around.

When it comes to nailing the boho trend, there are a few fashion items that are a must – tie dye, paisley prints, dainty lace, soft suedes, long maxi skirts and flower-anything! That 70s style is back in a big way. Boho-chic is all about dressing free-spirited, plus the styling process is super easy. You can mix and match prints, textures and colours to customise your own unique look. This is the guide you need to master the bohemian look and create an outfit that even Kate Moss would be envious of.


1. Mismatch the prints

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

2. Add in all of the textures

Shaggy faux fur, soft tan suede, fringing, chambray, denim, delicate silks and crochet – they all go together.

3. Layer it up

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

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.
