The one style I always feel comfortable in when I am experiencing with various outfits is what I call the casual Boho. In my definition of the term these outfits usually are simple but have enough detail to make them interesting. They are easy to move in, meaning you can run after your kids, dog in them or rush to your class and shop till you drop.
Here is one of my go to casual Boho outfits. ( Added bonus: I got the dress and the vest from Stylemint’s previous mystery box for about $40, at a fraction of their original price. More about the brand the Olsen twins made famous later)
Step 1: Find a preferably cotton blend dress in a flowy, forgiving fabric
Step 2: Layer it with a not-too fussy but textured jacket, vest, cardigan, or sweater
Step 3: Pair with ankle boots, a bit of heels is good for petite gals like me; if you have a taller frame you can totally get away with flat booties instead. 🙂
Step 4: Now it’s time to accessorize! This is where you can have a lot of fun, show your personality some more, and choose pieces that give glimpses of who you are! For instance I love vintage looking necklaces and the color orange so I started off with a long medallion , added on a fringed mid-length necklace and finished off with a delicate piece.
My advice is to mix and match different textures, colors, metals to get a not too finished look.
Step 5: Accessorize some more with a cool ring, and a bracelet of your liking. You can easily try a wrap like I did or use bangles, chains or a cuff.
Step 6: Finish off the look with an unstructured bag. This Cynthia Vincent came from the fall special edition Popsugarmusthave box.
I spent a day with my family at my favorite bookstore running around after the kiddos from aisle to aisle half of the time, followed by a bite to eat and some shopping. This outfit is theboxqueen approved for comfort 🙂
Now try out this style and let me know what you think! Don’t forget to think out of your wardrobe box and have confidence that anyone can make any type of outfit work for them. It’s all about the attitude and why not try something new, even just for the fun of it !
