Top Boho Style Fails & How To Avoid Them

What to Avoid When it Comes to Boho Style & How to Put Together Outfits

If there's one thing we’ve learned in fashion that many girls and women do wrong when attempting to achieve the look, then it has to be: 
TOO MANY Long Layers!
We aim for a feminine boho look, and this is not it! That is so not the boho chic look we're aiming for. No matter how much confidence you have, if your outfit has too many long layers you'll look smaller and swallowed up with no figure flattering shape. Especially if you're on the shorter side of the height spectrum by nature. I know, it's tempting to layer your outfit with your favorite accessories but there is a fine line between looking casual-stylish and trying too hard to achieve a look that just isn’t working. 

So then, How DO You Layer an Outfit?
Our two top tips and pointers for layering outfits are:

1. Go easy on the color combinations, layers, length and fit of your outfit. Avoid anything that's bigger than your body frame (use a belt to a shapeless bohemian dress if you have to) or anything that extends past your feet. If you're smaller framed (petite) make sure to adjust to your body scale.

2. When it comes to layering, you'll usually know where to stop. 

Step a few feet away from the mirror and take notice of how the clothes fall from your frame. 
  • Does it draw attention away from your face?
  • Does it "drag" your frame down, making you look smaller or stumpy?
  • Does it make you look heavy or heavier than normal on some areas? 

If yes, take one layer off or consider wearing something less dense-looking. 

Keep it feminine and chic by mixing oversized pieces with tailored/fitted clothes. For example, if you're wearing an oversized sweater or tunic top, add a pair of straight or slim-fitted jeans to balance out the look. Our jeggings are a top pick for this look and even adding a layered lace bottom slip under the sweater is a perfect combo and outfit to pull off daily!
