But first, what is Boho?

Boho is short for the term Bohemian. It’s a fashion style in the 60s and 70s that is inspired by free-spirited women. This style is mostly associated with boho dresses that are particularly made with flowing skirts and noticeable prints and embroidery.
Because of its simple elegance and chic ensemble, there is no doubt why brides, and even grooms, would want a boho-themed wedding during summer. However, if you think that bohemian dresses may be a little outdated for the 21st century, you better think again. When it is paired with the modern touch of fashion, boho dresses can certainly look more stunning than a traditional summer wedding outfit.

Style with sandals

Some people may perceive that boho fashion is all about wearing boots paired with their dresses. While it is accurate, it’s not the best choice for a wedding or any formal occasion. When going to a boho wedding, the best way is to wear stylish sandals. It may sound plain and boring but if you choose sandals with long straps and decorated ensembles, you will perfectly fit the occasion. The key is to choose the colour that will complement your outfit. For example, if you are wearing a somewhat darker dress, choose lighter sandals so it will not be too overpowering. The best thing is that, for boho fashion, you can go as far as wearing glitter sandals that will sparkle as you walk around the room.

Accessories are a must

It’s not boho fashion if you don’t wear accessories bold and noticeable accessories. It’s a must to wear complete accessories from earrings to bracelets, up to necklaces and anklets. Boho fashion is big on wearing these things. For earrings, it’s ideal to wear dangling or big ones. Then, you can pair it with a matching bracelet and anklet. As for the necklace, the smartest way is to wear layers. You can look for double or triple-layer necklaces for a more stunning look. However, always keep in mind to choose a single colour or make for your accessories. If you prefer gold, all your accessories should be gold.
