Bohemian clothing style

Tips for boho style on a budget

Going bohemian definitely means adding a lot of new garments and accessories to your wardrobe. If you haven’t planned your budget, this sudden fashion overhaul can weigh heavily on your pockets. However, there are a few ways to save and penny pinch.  Adding cheap accessories to your mix will really help save you some money.  For example Bohemian headbands are not only cheap but can be the final touches to make an outfit look great.   Listed below are some of the effective ways to go boho on a budget.

  1. Bunk the brand

Boho style is all about creating laidback, vintage styles. It isn’t necessary to get a new piece for your look. Dig through your pile of old clothes, if you find anything worthwhile you can give it a touch up before wearing. This is as good as getting a new piece. You can also shop from flea markets and vintage stores, where you can easily choose from a large selection at a much-subsidized cost. Stay away from brands, if you are choosing labels at the expense of variety, it is going to do no good. Instead, use the cash to stack up on as much as possible from cheaper stores.

  1. Online shopping

Online stores are a treasure chest for the fashion lovers. You get to browse through as many garments as possible right from your home. The options are limitless. You also get the option of customizing your searches based on style, color, price, fit and brand. Without a doubt, you will find something or another to satisfy your needs. If you are specifically after a lower price, you can search for used items at stores dealing in second-hand merchandise.

  1. Stack up during sales

There are many different types of sales you can take advantage of – end of season sales, 24-hour flash sales, weekend sales, and clearance sales just to name a few. All you have to do is keep an eye out and rush in as soon as the price go down. This can be a great advantage, especially because you can get name brand items at a very low price. If you are a regular customer of a certain brand, they will notify you of sales through emails and texts. You may also get some bonus offers and payback benefits. So stay updated on these things if you are crazy for fashion.

  1. Look for affordable brands

Without a doubt, the best outfits usually come from the most expensive brands. The downside is that they also cost you a fortune; if you aren’t willing to spend large amounts on your outfits, search for brands that sell good pieces at a reasonable price. There are many online stores that sell boho outfits at a very affordable price range. If you really take up the effort of going through the stock, you will definitely find something that benefits you. You can also follow the fashionistas on Instagram and see their recommended stores. This will make things much easier for you.

  1. Accessories

The better part of boho style is the accessories. When you have a good collection of jewelry and other accessories, you can play around with your look in an endless number of ways. So start stocking up on the necklaces, bracelets, rings, and headbands. These are the most used accessories in boho fashion. You can also try out different materials such as wood, feather, and metals. Copper jewelry with embedded sapphires looks great for all skin tones. It’s always safer to go for vintage jewelry as it never falls out of fashion. You can easily get vintage pieces from flea markets or curio shops at very affordable prices. As for the headband, you can collect flower crowns, single layered headbands, and thicker bandanas. Also, do not forget the importance of sunglasses in boho fashion. Slightly oversized ones are the best for creating cool, laid back looks.

  1. Stay in touch with the market

You do not have to make a purchase every time you visit the market. You can just go around window shopping and checking out the collection and price. This way you will stay in touch with what is trending and at what prices. If you have friends who follow similar fashion trends, you can stay in touch and share with each other to stay updated.

Boho scarf styles that you can sport

A scarf may be one little piece of cloth, but it can play up your look in unimaginable ways. You can wear them with a simple outfit and instantly highlight the entire look. They add an extra amount of grace that is not achievable with any jewelry. If the weather is cold, you can substitute them for a shawl or a muffler and stay chic throughout. Either way, scarves are very much inexpensive, flexible and therefore an essential component to every wardrobe. Stock up on printed/non-printed scarves and they will add versatility to you wardrobe all year round. Here are some super fashionable ways to sport a boho scarf and to dress up your bohemian style clothing.

Wear it as a necklace

This is the simplest way to wear a scarf.  If you are not very interested in using busy jewelry, you can simply take a scarf and tie it around your neck. This way, you will also not have to keep on readjusting it throughout the day. Lightweight scarves of thin width are the best for this. Fold the scarf, tie it at the back and let it fall over your neckline. If you are wearing it with a boho cardigan, wear shorter lengths in fabrics such as silk and chiffon. Printed ones are always better for this look than the non-printed ones.

Wear it as a headwrap

This is another interesting way to wear a scarf. Take a short cotton scarf and wrap it around your head for a strong boho-influenced look. You can try out different wraps, for eg, as a bandana, as a turban and so on. If you want an affluent feminine touch, keep them low over your forehead while letting your hair loose.  When you are wearing a scarf as a headband, choose fabrics with a firm hold to prevent slipping.

Wear them in a casual style

This is the most popular way of wearing a scarf. Choose the one that you feel is uplifting for your look and just wrap it around your neck. You can make a single or double turn around your neck depending on the thickness you want. You can let both the free ends dangle at the front or let one fall at the front and one at the back. This look can be worn with jeans and dresses alike.

Layer with a necklace

Wearing both a necklace and a scarf can get a bit tricky. To make sure that you do not look over cluttered, it is important to maintain a balance between the two. If you are wearing a statement neckpiece, let the scarf hang lower so as to create enough space for the necklace. If you are wearing the scarf itself as a necklace, wear a long chain necklace,  that drops down to the chest.

Wear as a sarong

        

This is for the beach look. Choose a thin fabric such as chiffon and wrap it around the waist to create a cover up from the bikini bottom. If you are wearing a solid colored bikini, wear a solid scarf, if you are wearing a printed bikini, wear a printed scarf. Florals, tribal prints and paisley prints will look better.

Create a dramatic look

Take a long scarf and wrap it around in such a way so that it takes up elaborate space in the front, creating soft ruffles. Wear a plain top so that your getup does not look too overwhelming. In this case, the scarf itself will work as a top, so you can go for interesting, elaborate prints without a cringe.

Tie it over your bag

     

Take a small square shaped scarf and tie it to one of your bag handles. This will add a glamorous touch to your look. You can also use the knot for holding your sunglasses, which will look even cooler, perfect for summer.
