How To Style A Boho Chic Look (For The Everyday Girl)

Happy #FASHIONWEDNESDAY!!! I am so excited that it is huuuump day! That means only two more days until the weekend (HOLLA). I am SO ready for Friday already. This week has been full of exciting things going on, but most importantly: Coachella. MOST normal human beings do not attend coachella, but I still like stalking celebrity instagrams to see what the trends are for the year. There is always a 70s/boho vibe with flower crowns and flowy tops. Today, we are going to tackle a boho chic look that ANYONE can wear (not just a celebrity at Coachella). Let’s jump into it.

How To Style A Boho Chic Look (For The Everyday Girl)

Ok. So, I am a huuuuge fan of boho looks. I love peasant tops, floppy hats, flowy tassels. While my style doesn’t usually surround that kind of dress (that’s more my sister — she was literally born in the wrong era), it doesn’t mean I don’t like to look that way every once in a while! 

SO. Let’s take a peek at this boho chic style and four ways you can look like a 70s princess:

STEP ONE: Choose your top wisely.

This is important. Think about what you are trying to portray. In this case, we are going for a 70s boho look. That DOESN’T mean tie dye or psychedelic accessories. It means loose, bell-sleeved tops with a flowing fit. This particular top (shop the exact one here) has a high-low hemline with soft lace around the color and a light ivory color. It doesn’t have bell sleeves but I do think that would have been the perfect addition to this look. SO. let’s wrap this up. You are looking for: light and bright color (preferably pastel), flowing fit through the body, and bell-sleeves.

STEP TWO: You need a hat.

This is important. I always feel when going for a boho chic look, flowy hats are a MUST-HAVE-do-not-pass-go-without-it. They are A. adorable and B. really pull this look together. SO. I got my flowy hat in the target dollar section so I would highly recommend checking that out. They always have amazing hats for like $5-10. Aka SCORE and also buy ALL of them. The key to buying the perfect floppy hat is that it can’t have TOO much flop or it gets in your face and it can’t have to LITTLE flop because then it looks still. My husband is king at choosing hats with the right flop so go through a couple until you nail it.

STEP THREE: These shoes were made for walkin’.

The shoes. SO important. OK. When you are choosing which shoes to pair with an outfit like this, remember, platform heels were a big thing in that era. I did not choose to go with an actual pair of platform heels, but rather some chunky heeled booties that had the essence of platform shoes. The thick heel is the trick here.

STEP FOUR: A nude (or completely naked) lip.

I actually went with just a light clear gloss for this look. A big, bold lip isn’t something this look needs because I’m going for a more natural beauty and natural glow kind of feel. The mascara and eyeliner are already almost pushing it, so I skipped my usual bright lip and embraced my natural lips!


That’s a wrap, folks! Four steps to ensuring you have the PERFECT boho chic look. I love this vibe for the summertime. It is effortlessly cool, chic and totally put together. My heavy and bold winter style is slowly being packed away in favor of less makeup and more sunshine (and I could honestly not be happier).
