Fashion Forward: Bohemian Chic
After tonight, big red suits and white beards won't be in style for another 365 days. But if you want to look trendy year round, think about taking on a more cultured look. In tonight's fashion forward, Shireen Sandoval introduces us to "Bohemian Chic."
WSVN -- Caftans, colored tunics, and crinkled skirts. No, we are not taking you on a Far Eastern safari, but bohemian chic is the hottest trend that's hitting South Florida.
Freda Greenbaum, A Nose for Clothes: "It's about adventure. It allows a woman to be herself."
At A Nose for Clothes they say you don't need any tigers or wild animals to get adventure. Your clothes will roar on their own with bright colors.
Freda: "I think last season it was all about pink, it was every shade, Pinks are still important, but now it's really about turquoise, greens, oranges and yellows."
With boho chic a little goes a long way. These clothes might not really take you around the world, but they certainly can take your from day to night. Especially if you dare to go bare.
Freda: "The excitment is that you have this tunics and Caftans which can also serve as mini dresses."
At Neiman Marcus they've say it's a boho chic bonanza.
Katharine Rubino, Neiman Marcus: "We are seeing a lot of Bohemian influences and I think that will be trend that will go on through the spring season."
With clothes that flow and fabrics that feel oh so comfy it's hard not to love the look. So lucky for us, this hippie-chic style is spilling over into every type of attire.
Katharine: "Even with the shoes, like Dior has a little peace sign on the shoes. It has love written on the shoes."
With so many sequins it's never been so easy to remain comfy yet chic. From tie-died hoodies to traditional tanks, everything is going bohemian.
Katharine: "Everyone has their own twist with what they are doing with it."
To add to the look, go with lots of gold jewelry. Big gold hoops are an easy solution.
