Are you a good girl with a dreamy, mysterious side and a love for art and music? Do you have the need to fit in but stand out? If you’re like many women, you have a fragmented personality with conflicting ideas and tastes.
But don’t let this prevent you from forming a signature style! One of the most popular looks that’s equally stylish and rebellious is called Preppy Boho; it combines elements from upper-crust Old Money fashion and flower child spiritedness and spontaneity. Here are some ways in which you can achieve this enviously chic combination with finesse:
*Splurge on scarves!
Nothing pumps some flower power into an outfit like a scarf. Wear it in your hair like a headband or tie it over your scrunchie. Wrap it around your neck for a more poetic look or use it as a belt. Consider buying scarves with quaint Vintage designs in pastel or jewel-like colors, or buy bright ones. Paisley and floral designs are most flattering, but experiment with other patterns too if you wish. Solid-colored scarves work great with patterned blouses.
*Stock up on polo shirts in earth tones and rich wines.
Polo shirts are the ultimate preppy staple, but the trademark Boho color scheme tones down the country club air. Search for polos in beige, burgundy, camel, forest green, burnt orange, brick red, mustard yellow, pale gray, violet, pine green, magenta, and fuchsia. Pair your polo with a pair of distressed jeans, cute leather sandals, a paisley scarf in your hair, and a subtle pearl necklace.
*Look for pretty bangles in feminine colors that you can stack on your arms when wearing short-sleeved or sleeves tops.
The more bangles, the better, but balance your outfit out with minimal jewelry everywhere else. Try wearing a bunch of bangles with a ¾ sleeve blouse, a plain plaid skirt, girlish Mary Janes, and colorful tights or a funky headband.
