Boho-Chic Week: Khalid & Bridges

Tired of wearing a dress that’s ‘so last season’?
Fashion pieces that never go out of style – oh, if only.

Now let’s think, which fashion fad never seems to die? Boho-chic, it seems, has its influences lurking in all the sneakiest ways.

Drawing on bohemian & hippie influences, Boho-Chic began in the 1960s. Its popularity boomed after Sienna Miller strutted her stuff at the Glastonbury Festival, 2004. Constantly re-emerging on the latest catwalks are signature slouchy cardigans, grungy dresses, heavily embroidered belts and cowboy boots.

Less conventional are its alternative titles ‘”hobo-grunge” and “heroin chic”. It’s definitely not easy to nail the style. You can’t just dress like a hobo!

Getting in touch with a dozen online fashion houses and having perused their Boho-Chic collections, I learnt a whole lot. What can these fashion houses share with us about Boho-Chic?


In the spotlight today:

Bonus Style Advice: (from Rabia Khalid and Fredericka Lathbridge of Khalid&Bridges):

Staying in trend this fall with Boho chic should be a breeze: there are many choices available to indulge your style appetite. The great thing about Boho chic is that it’s all about creating an individual style.
The winter season provides a great opportunity to play around with colours as well as layers. Folk-inspired pieces are on trend with all sorts of colour combinations available and patterns inspired by Native American looks and Asian influences.

When it comes to shoes, a great pair of boots can compliment either trousers or jeans with a white blouse or a baggy cardigan/jumper. Slouchy pants are hot off the catwalk from New York and are a fantastic choice to add a little oomph to your outfit this winter. To finish the look off, dress your neck with some statement jewellery. Necklaces are the perfect the accessory to complete your Boho chic look, check out our collection at Khalid and Bridges’s (https://www.etsy.com/shop/KhalidandBridges?ref=si_shop) to find the perfect statement accessory.
