The mixture of the free-flowing and unconventional structures of the bohemian style have always been a draw for many, especially in the summer months when the heat inspires us to don threads that are arid, light and as if we’re on permanent vacation. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Yet summer creeps to its end, leaving us ready to replace the freedom of beach days and cottaging, along with its associative attire, instead resorting to the heavier and restrictive clothing that will keep away the looming chill. But alas, this does not have to mean the end for statement and stylish pieces . Instead we can easily meld the beauty of bohemian with the more sensible structures and fabrics of the conventional and the chic to bring us the birth of beloved boho-chic. Here are La Vie Chic‘s top picks from Fall 2016 collections in the style to see you transition right through those fall months, without pushing bohemian bliss to the back of your closet.
Wools in light hues and comfortable billowing shape, paired with thigh high suede boots can become your fall version of that beach -side maxi dress. Suede is everything this season and it pairs perfectly with full-length floral dresses in chocolate and rosy hues. A suede trench in black and matching ankle boots help to anchor the floral frock that can easily be a perfect pick for spring months as well.
Zara’s latest collection for the fall months reminds us that pumpkin is the colour of the season and is incredibly complementary to any skin tone. Charcoal is a close runner up for the fall months and either can help to give that extra brightness and lightness that is associated with the boho-chic style. Pair one or both of these trenches with a sheer knee length peasant dress in a neutral shade and you’re sure to keep bringing the bohemian flare.
Heading into fall means donning more trousers and often this means steering away from bohemian options. However, the jumpsuit has save lovers of this style and Cleobella has a number of these must-have forms of fashion that provide the comfort and appeal of the flirty floral skirt in the structure of these rompers, either in solids or vibrant and fiery tones. Add a statement suede or leather jacket with fur trim and a pair of snake skin ankle boots, to tie the outfit together as one glorious ensemble.
For Love & Lemons always knows how to maintain the chic while mixing with that bit of sexy flare. In rich reds, cranberries and tan, along with solid black hues and studding, their fall collection takes the bohemian and fully infuses the chicness. Match a leather-studded overall dress with a lacy peasant-style blouse and choker for edgy and hip bohemian. Rock two-piece sets well into the cooler months in a textured pattern and ruffled sleeves. Don a fringed leather and studded jacket to match just about any of the mentioned looks and it’s boho-chic done right.
