Romantic bohemian – tips + trends

I’m back after a two week hiatus to India! I gotta say, it was quite an amazing experience traveling from one city to another and I’ve so many wonderful pictures to share with all you, but of course I’ll leave that for another post. Right now I’m going to be talking about another spring trend I’ve seen pop up literally everywhere including India and right here at home in Sri Lanka and that is the romantic bohemian trends.

I find that this particular trend is somewhat a fusion of prints and textures and that’s something I like a lot. My closet and clothing is pretty much a combination of 80% prints and textures so yeah..!

I find that loose tops are a great part of a bohemian look and the white top with blue embroidery work is something I bought myself while shopping in India at one of my favourite stores in Global Desi. It’s actually kind of a long dress with an asymmetrical bottom which I absolutely love. What makes this trend so special and unique is that you can mix and match items you probably already own in your closet and just make it work. A baggy long tee can be used to create a bohemian look if you just team it up with some long beaded necklaces, a tassle handbag and perhaps a hair adornment to complete it. All you gotta do is make it work!

Bold and bright colours are a must as you can see, so dig in deep in your closet for the brightest items of clothing you’ve got. Let’s also not forget the accessories. Accessories make such a huge difference when paired well with an outfit so choose yours wisely to complete your romantic bohemian look.

When it comes to makeup, I think it’s best to keep a subtle look because you’ve already got a lot going on when it comes to your outfit but occasionally I suppose if you keep things light, then you could amp up your makeup.

Smokey eyes and eyeliners in bright bold colours are a huge rave so think out of the box when playing with your makeup. Your nails can be given the same kind of treatment; you can play with pastel shades or go with bright hues.

Neon yelloooooow

Neeeoooon!

Still on the subject of summer and neon. It doesn’t get old really. For me, shopping in Sri Lanka and finding something in neon is like finding a diamond in my cereal – very unlikely! But I do skim through fashion magazines online and look around on what’s trending on Pinterest and it seems like the neons are still a rave.

One colour in particular is catching everyone’s eye. The neon yellow. It almost looks like it’s got lime green undertones but comes across as a strong yellow in the sunlight.  The above picture shows classic and simple ways of putting together an outfit with a single neon item – a skirt, blouse or belt.

Easy funky look

It’s easy to accessorise with a neon item because you can either choose to play up the colour or down. Further accessorising it with funky bright colours will play up your complete look whereas mixing it with some nudes will tone it down.

Don’t be afraid to use neon accessories like belts, scarves,  clutch bags and even chunky necklaces. These will further enhance your complete look. Don’t worry about matching things all round, simply mix and match as you please and create a new look.

Florals and neon

Bet you didn’t think neon could be paired with a floral but take a look at the above picture for example;  it creates a diverse chic look on the whole when you do.

I’m still on the lookout for neon accessories which I would like to pair with some of my outfits. If you do happen to find a store, comment below and let me know! In the meantime I think I’ll continue to browse the Internet…
