As temperatures rise and winter slowly but surely blooms into spring, visions of beach trips and weekend getaways become more and more frequent. With that, of course, comes the perfect warm weather wardrobe. There is always one style that springs to mind once sunny skies start to make an appearance: boho-chic. This casual but elegant style was made for carefree days away from the office and everyday worries. Boho-chic has had an enduring popularity, but how do we take this classic look into 2017 in a way that's fresh? We looked to some of our favorite fashion bloggers to light the way.
Keep reading for four boho-chic outfit formulas you can wear all season long.
Loose Shirt + Cutoffs + Lace-Up Sandals
Every part of this look is effortless, chic, and put together. The cutoff shorts add a little edge to the crisp, shoulder-baring blouse. Tie-up sandals are a bold choice, but Chriselle Lim of The Chriselle Factor chose the perfect version of the shoe. These sandals let the lace-up detailing speak for itself without any extra adornments. Accessories are similarly kept to a minimum, with just the barest hint of gold accents shining through.
Shirt Dress + Slip-On Shoes + Loose Jewelry
Lucy Williams of Fashion Me Now puts together a breezy boho look with the help of one simple ingredient: a loose shirt dress in a vivid color. The statement-making color adds polish to the dress's loose silhouette. For jewelry, take a cue from Williams and stack delicate pieces, like the long gold necklaces she wears here. Shoes should be kept minimal and Williams's nude slip-ons look elegant, yet casual.
For a playful take on boho-chic, mix together a patterned skirt or shorts with a straw hat and espadrilles. This version of boho chic can be worn a variety of ways, so experiment with patterns and pops of color. Sara Escudero of Collage Vintage opts for a billowy white blouse, a clean addition that lets the skirt and shoes take center stage.
Maxi Dress + Mules
This stunning version of boho-chic by Olivia Lopez of Lust for Life is all about minimalism. Pair a loose, solid-colored maxi with a pair of mules that have block heels for some added height. We love the combination of off-white worn with a richly colored mule that matches the tortoiseshell sunnies.
