Boho Glam

I'm a huge fan of the boho (short for bohemian) look that's trending right now.  Actually, I've been a fan since college.  I remember my Fashion Professor from USC asking me what's my favorite trend of 2003.  I proudly stood up in class in my distressed bell bottom jeans and off white fringed top and said, "Duh, Boho".  Just like most great trends, it's back full force.

You may remember my post about a year ago, It's BOHO, Not HOBO!.  I was frustrated with all the Hipsters taking the boho trend and making it grungy.  Boho is not a grungy look at all.  Think, "music festivals in the 70's.  Floral headbands, platform shoes, bell bottom pants, fringed bags.  A current comparison would be Coachella.

I actually like to glam my boho look up a bit.  Instead of boho head to toe, add some statement jewelry or a pair of mile high wedges.  Unexpected accessories are a great way to add glam to your look.  The stunning statement necklace and earrings are from Chloe & Isabel.  Their line of jewelry is a perfect compliment to any look, especially the boho glam!  A lot of their pieces can be changed from statement to simple, so you get lots of looks with just one piece.  I love it all!

Always remember, It's BOHO, not HOBO!  Add a bit of glam to your boho look to keep it current and tasteful.  My crocheted white top is from H&M, the bell bottom floral pants are Forever21, black wedges are Steve Madden from Burlington Coat Factory and the jewelry is Chloe & Isabel.
