“Bo­hemian glam­our is one of the eas­i­est and most re­laxed ways to dress. It’s also su­per-ver­sa­tile – you can do it for a weekend, a night out, and it’s es­pe­cially chic when you work a Bo­hemian look on hol­i­day. You want to hit the right bal­ance be­tween Bo­hemian and glam­our so the looks should have lit­tle touches of luxe and not too hip­pie-dippy.” “You want to be Boho, not hobo – so keep it pol­ished. Do your hair, work a red lip, or ac­ces­sorise your looks with state­ment pieces. Strappy me­tal­lic san­dals and stack­ing on chunky ex­tras in high­shine gold is the eas­i­est way to make this a night look. If girl­ish vin­tage flo­rals look too sweet, toughen up the look with a worn leather jacket or a denim vest. Also, the Bo­hemian trend has been go­ing on for a while, so the de­tails have to be cur­rent. Drop the cro­chet bags and braided head­bands, and opt for a sleek, woven clutch, and an over­sized felt hat à la Saint Lau­rent. You should as­pire to em­u­late Ni­cole Richie, Kate Bos­worth and Rachel Zoe’s looks, not Vanessa Hud­gens. Ask your­self: Would a stoner girl wear this to Coachella? If the an­swer is yes, change.” “I’m a T-shirt-and jeans kind of per­son but I like my ba­sics to have a lit­tle twist – so tees with re­ally in­ter­est­ing prints and colours, or in un­usual cuts and fab­rics. At the mo­ment, I am liv­ing in sweaters. They are so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down.”
