New Bohemian: SS16 Trend

Hello there,

How are you girly girls?  I’ve been extremely busy these past few weeks, hence the silent treatment.  I’m really sorry about that!

Anyway, back to business!  Has any of you had the chance to go to Coachella last weekend?  Or will you go next weekend?  I only had the chance to see pictures of the epic festival.  It looked pretty cool.  The fashion was also on point…  Bohonpoint (hahaha – Did I mention I was tired?  Did I?  I’m tired.)

Now, it’s time to get ready for next weekend.  So, let’s go on with the InStyle SS16 trends: New Bohemian.

Boho Chic or Hippie Chic?

Hello girls,

How are you doing? I hope you had a great week and that you’re having an even greater weekend 😉

Here in Belgium, we had a few fabulously sunny crisp days. I love those kinds of days, and it made me long for those spring and summer days (and oh oh those summer nights 😀). And I pictured myself sitting at a nice café with some friends, recovering from an epic day at Coachella, pulling off the boho chic style.

And then I thought, wait a minute. What’s boho chic? And what’s hippie chic? Is there actually a difference between these two trends? And if yes, what are they? And then I thought, I cannot be the only person who’s a little confused about this. (Not like I lost any sleep about it, but still… ). So, it’s only natural that I came up with this article: Boho (Chic) vs Hippie (Chic). What’s the deal, trends?

Let’s start with boho chic. Boho comes from bohemian. Bohemian is:

“a person who has informal and unconventional social habits, esp. an artist or writer (New Oxford American Dictionary); or a nonconformist writer or artist who lives an unconventional life (Wordnet).  A synonym would be gipsy.”

When you check various websites, such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, or InStyle, here are the key words that are used to describe the boho chic trends: late 60’s and 70’s, maxi dresses, crochet dresses, Yves Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant, tie dye, paisley, floral, suzani, printed maxi dress, gladiator sandals, floppy hat, a fringe cross-body bag, fur vest, beaded vest, flared jeans, a coin-embellished belt, denim cut-offs, feather earrings, boots, …

The pioneers were Thea Porter (check this, this, and that out) and Talitha Getty (the featured image was taken from CBS), followed by Sienna Miller and Kate Moss in the UK, and the Olsen twins in the US.

First Purchase of the Season: Maxi Skirt from Kocca

Hey there,
How have you been?  You know I told you last week that I went shopping and that I found bought 2 lovely pieces.  Well, in this post I will show you this second item.
I bought a maxi skirt, also from Kocca.  When I saw it, I loved it immediately; but I wasn’t sure it would suit me, given that I’m quite short.  Well, guess what?!  It looked great, and I have to say I’m really glad about it 🙂
Check it out (I took the pictures from the brand’s website):

How To Wear An All-White Look – In Honor of Wimbledon

Hey there,

How are you?  Are you super-duper-sad about friday’s game?  I know I am… And I want to get over it as fast as possible!  Lucky me, there’s Wimbledon to make me feel better.

If you know a bit about this mythic tennis tournament, you probably know that it has a very specific dress code.  In London, players have to wear an all white ensemble.  The organization is pretty strict about it.  A couple of years ago, some female players had to change bras because they were not all white.  Too much?  Maybe, but this dress code is also what makes Wimbledon so epic.  And just for the anecdote, this year had also its lot of controversy with the Nike “nightie” dress.
