What we know about boho chic? That it is a fashion trend said to have been started by actress Sienna Miller in 2005 after the movie Alfie, where she wore bohemian-style clothing. That it is partly bohemian (alternative, laid-back and chilled) and partly chic, meaning classy, glamorous, not over the top or flashy.

It mixes vintage fashion with modern environment. It combines handmade, organic, colourful, folk items with simple, modern items.
|Folk motives, maxi skirts, headpieces bring Boho chic on|
The point of Boho style is to look looking authentic and natural, alternative yet not trying too hard. Long skirts, baggy tops and accessorizing. Folk motives, Indian, Moroccan, Gypsy, any of them will work.
But how about making it more fun and chic? Combining boho, hippie and rave styles together. Being edgy and cool? Where Burning Man meets Coachella, where your freedom is just limited by following “formalities” of the dress code?

They say you must wear a hat, here it is:

You formally follow the dress code and comply with all imposed norms, however your outfit screams: “Hello, I’m a rebel!”

Both boho and hippie chic are synonymous to accessories. Headpieces, bracelets, anklets, necklaces, body harnesses, belts. The list is limited only by your imagination.
