Go with the Flow: A Head-to-Toe Boho Guide

Nicole Richie. Sienna Miller. The Olsen twins. When it comes to effortlessly chic boho style, these stars know how to do it right. But here’s a little-known secret – it’s not that hard to pull off. Just check out the head-to-toe guide below and embrace your inner free spirit (you know it’s in there).


The Hair
The beauty of boho hair? It’s easy. Seriously – no flat irons, curlers, or wands required. Simply spritz on a little sea-salt spray for natural, beachy waves, add a headpiece (bonus points for one with flowers), and you’re ready to hit up the nearest music fest.

The Threads
The trick to achieving a boho look lies in your ability to layer. Start with a maxi dress, add a silky peasant top, belt it, and then finish it off with a vest. Keep the colors earthy and neutral to make room for vibrant, colorful accessories.

The Extras
When it comes to jewelry, ditch the diamonds and get eclectic. Mix and match necklaces and keep the earrings small and subtle. As for arm candy: stack away. Bold bangles, colorful cuffs, and even those DIY friendship bracelets are all fair game here. For the pièce de résistance – throw a woven bucket bag with a touch of fringe over your shoulder.

The Kicks
One of the best parts of going boho? Your feet finally get a much-deserved break. Skip stilettos and strap on a pair of comfortable embellished flats or leather booties. Details like beads or tassels are always an added plus.
