Sheer Fabric, Woven Bag and Big Tassels
In general, outfits that are a combination of luxury and bohemian tend to have a voluminous and breezy look and feel. With this, Asia designers are recommending the use of sheer and soft fabric to give the look a feminine and ethereal touch. To complete the look, it is recommended to bring a woven bucket bag or embroidered clutch. Lastly, wear chandelier earrings or big tassels.
Color Combination, Intricate embroidery and Busy Print
What’s great with a boho-luxe style is that it can achieve different vibes like the medieval era look. It can be achieved wearing dresses that have floral prints with contrast piping, which also exude a rustic feel. The medieval feel can be amplified with the use of bell sleeves, smocked detailing, and drawcord neckline silhouettes.
Boho-luxe style also highlights anything that is hand-made. You can always wear anything woven, crocheted and embroidered. Women and men alike are now going gaga over embroidered bomber jackets. Lastly, the combination of blue, black or red against white makes the look sophisticated and classy.
