Styling 101: Bohemian Chic

This week’s Styling 101 post is about era dressing – I always get excited when the 70’s are “in” for Fall – There are so many amazing fashion choices that you can make to celebrate that era. From wide leg pants to cropped cigarette pants, simple Mod-style dresses, and jumpsuits to fabulous accessories like felt hats, skinny belts, and boots of every shape & style. I especially like adding a bit of a bohemian flare and this long-sleeved shift dress in dark, moody florals is the perfect way to bring that style to life.

These lace up booties were a no brainer with this floral shift, they compliment it perfectly and keep the look more relaxed than a pair of pumps would have. Layering silver pieces and beads was a great way to play up the 70’s flower child vibe that we were going for here – They’re fun but still eye-catching and chic. A great way to make a basic dress like this one pop is by adding statement pieces like these layered vintage necklaces and the brightly color Givenchy handbag.

Don’t forget that you can shop these fabulous one-of-a-kind pieces over at the Sasha Maks Vintage website while they’re available!
