If you thought that boho chic accessories originated with Sienna Miller, we have news for you. While the actress rocked the look throughout the ’90s, the style actually dates back more than 200 years.
Back in the 1960s we had Brigitte Bardot and her gorgeous boho beach look with colourful headscarves at centre stage. Then there was Elizabeth Taylor and her glorious printed kaftans.
Going back even further to the Pre-Raphaelite times, we have painters such as Rossetti whose subjects represent the original boho chic. Masses of curly hair and ethnic-style clothing flowed freely. Every fabric of the clothing, every necklace and bracelet boasted rich colours and intricate patterns.
The beauty of pulling off boho chic (or bohemian chic) style is that there are no rules. Your look is your own to create. Mix up prints, colours and layers to your heart’s desire. This is a style traditionally associated with the creatives and it’s up to you to continue the trend.
The element of freedom is integral to this look. We aim to embody this with every one of our pieces. That’s why we were so pleased to see blogger Christina from Packphase wear our boho chic accessories on a trip to the beach (pictured below). Boho chic is a move towards paradise-type ideals and we can’t think of a better place for our accessories to take a trip.
We have styled our boho chic accessories collection so that you can easily pull off the look. Nothing is too much. Layer up your necklaces and bracelets and don’t concern yourself with matching colours or styles. Boho is freedom. Enjoy it!
