The boho style is actually a mixture of various styles. Add the hippie, ethnic, bohemian, folk, vintage, punk, romantic and then you have a complete look. It is a style with plenty of attitude, which takes into account enough comfort. The main elements of boho are long skirts, tunics, gowns, flowing dresses, bell-bottom pants and high-waisted shorts. Crochet, brown leather, suede and lace are present in the looks as well. In accessories, wide belts, long necklaces, big rings and fringed bags are often used together with some embroidery or beads, feathers and stones. The colors that predominate are caramel, wine, turquoise and chocolate, and Indian inspired patterns and colors are getting more popular. You can buy affordable boho clothes online, for example I got my boho dress from Melbourne Warehouse Sales.

Despite the various trends and the fact that fashion hits come and go, saree is a fashionable garment for women and is considered an evergreen trend. This ethnic wear suits everyone, regardless of age, nationality or body shape. The Indian saree has become a popular fashion item and is usually made ​​of a long fabric that wraps around the body. It can come in various designs and patterns. Some sarees are quite simple in color and design, while others may have heavy fabrics, thick embroidery and other crafts in it. These are considered a timeless beauty that will never fade with the passage of time. Although it is difficult for people living in western countries to find a retail store, a saree can be easily purchased online.

When kimonos were shown in the movie Memoirs of a Geisha, they were quickly adapted as a fashion trend to the western tastes. These are not the traditional and formal kimonos, but clothes inspired by the beauty and form of the kimono. Designers like Alexander Wang made ​​several proposals and Kate Moss designed half a dozen of these for the youth clothing store Topshop. Not to mention that Zara has proposed several of them, in plain colors or light patterns and as a replacement for traditional blazer. Likewise, Stradivarius also presented the westernized version of Japanese kimono to make it more wearable. There is a variety of designs and patterns that are arranged like long gowns or sexy minis to show off legs, as well as jackets or blouses and tunics with bat-sleeves or three-quarter sleeves, worn with shorts or skinny jeans. The fabrics are natural or synthetic – usually silk, cotton and wool or some other heavier fabrics for cold weather.

The trends of each season reveal some influences of the main capitals and fashionistas in the world, and this time the East has extended its boundaries to the West to make it clear that new proposals fashion-wise are perfect for this season.

    1. All credits to Amy who has written this wonderful post.
      And I love Boho style too. There is something so relaxed about the look.

    1. I’m not very comfortable in sarees. I take long strides and walk around haphazardly, and somehow I manage to trip in a saree almost every time. But I still love them.
