Boho chic, or boho blues?
Case in point: A maxi dress paired with flat sandals is boho hot. A muumuu is not. And yet, the same dress that could go both ways, depending on your body.
Boho looks effortlessly chic. But I came to the realization that it actually takes a ton of work as I tried on fitted t-shirts to go over a peasant skirt. Did I go with a graphic tee? A fitted knit top? Metallic flat sandals or leather gladiators? What about accessories?
I'm still figuring things out. But I did come up with a few do's and don'ts after a half hour in the dressing room:
DON'T feel like you have to work a maxi dress. My latest theory: Boobs are key to pulling off this look. It takes cleavage to carry the top, and those of us who are a little less, err, robust end up risking the preggo factor. But even among women rocking curves, there is no one size fits all.
DO add a funky market earring and some colorful scarves to your wardrobe. If you know anyone who's traveling abroad, these make great souvenirs.
DON'T stress yourself out about getting a boho outfit perfect on the first try. Some trial and error may be necessary.
But hey, what could be more boho than that?
