Casual Comfort or BoHo Chic?

The colour palette of this theme – with browns, rusts, greens and beiges dominating – lends itself mostly to casual dressing. There are, however, some more business-like suits in tweeds and herringbones for those with a more corporate lifestyle and some floral, vintage style maxi-dresses for those who love the BoHo look for evening. Denim also mixes well with this theme with bootleg jeans seeing a welcome return after several season of skinny-leg styles.

Layer It On
The secret of a successful BoHo look li es in the interesting mix of styles, fabrics and accessories. Don’t be afraid to mix rough and smooth textures or ‘romantic’ garments with ‘practical’ accessories. A rough tweed jacket and jeans looks great combined with a satin blouse and pearls; a floaty, floral dress can look sensational with a woolly scarf and wellies. Layer different fabrics and patterns together – a shaggy gilet over a paisley blouse with a suede skirt and thick ribbed tights – all topped off with a floppy 70’s hat. Use this folksy theme to express your individuality, creativity and personality.

Select your BoHo Accessories from the following:

- Suede Boots
- Stacks of Bangles
