Boho Chic, – The Bohemian Edit.
When you hear the phrase Boho Chic, what springs to mind? Yes, same here, images of actress Sienna Miller, Super Model Kate Moss, Meg Matthews and the original Glastonbury festival celebrity crowd. Bohio Chic, taken from the word Bohemian, is all about that loose, carefree, comfortable yet uber stylish and hip vibe, all rolled into one.
We’ve seen the Boho Chic look weave it’s way in and out of fashion every few years, pushing it to new levels. The Boho look came onto the scene in the mid – late 1960’s and resurfaced in a big way around 2004 on the icons mentioned above and their counterparts, apart from making mild appearances in fashion lines over the years.
Fast forward to 2016. The Boho Chic look is here, and it’s on the high street, which means it’s online too, in varying guises and price points ready for you to snap up.
