If you’re bold and artistic, and not afraid to make a statement, you will love this week’s Sparkling Tip about bohemian style and how you can wear it without needing to be a hippy from head to toe.
The good thing is that you can colorfully dress up any look, and appear as if you just arrived from a resort vaca; though even with these pros, it may not be ideal for the office with its trendy chunky and beaded bracelets.
Bohemian style is characterized by the extensive use of feathers, beads, leather and rough stones; all quite natural. This type of jewelry is inspired by the 70’s with a free spirit and a touch of romance.
Bracelets combine metal hardware or leather in vibrant shades of thread and patterns, and are worn in as many layers as possible, earrings come with large stones that offer a handmade touch, and unique and differentiating shapes of rings are worn on all fingers and sometimes several at a time. You can mix and match pieces to your liking.
Bohemian style uses organic shapes or conversely, geometric figures, creating a balance of strong and delicate, masculine and feminine. For colors, we can only say enjoy! — The more the merrier. The good news with bohemian style is it’s never enough, so pile on the bracelets, rings and necklaces! You can’t go wrong. Show your artistic flair and playful side because the combinations are endless.
