How does one pick a perfect outfit while shopping, really? Some of us seek refuge in boyfriend fits (translation: oversized everything), mood-lifting patterns (for the much-needed pick-me-up) and breathable fabrics. To think about it, these factors translate into a bohemian style, which we have introduced steadily in our lockdown wardrobe. So while picking a festive outfit, we think why shy away from these exact elements? Since the vibe is all about scene-stealing prints and billowy structures, we are all up for trying out ethnic pieces which seem like are boho-inspired. As always, bloggers come to our rescue, and here are some kurta sets worn by them which we think are totally hippie-chic.
This bralette-gharara set by Arpita Mehta is equal parts bold and stunning and definitely not for the faint-hearted. This Juhi-approved piece ticks off all checkpoints that make for a bohemian outfit - earthy red colour, peppy polka prints, and cowrie shell detailing. If you, too, wish to make a statement with this gharara set, we suggest you wear it with shoulder-grazing polki danglers and peppy printed juttis.
A billowy silhouette is the ultimate go-to element for a boho vibe, so pick this uber-minimal lime green (head-turning hue, we approve) kurta set by Paulmi & Harsh. Pair it just like Prerna, who has resorted to oxidized earrings and chock-full of bangles. Also, citrus-hued kurta sets are a rage, so pin this style ASAP.
If not vivacious colours, the bohemian look leans towards stark contrasting colour combinations. Just like this flowy peplum-gharara set by Tamanna Punjabi Kapoor, which features black resham embroidery on white. Take cues from Shereen Sikka, who innovatively styled this unconventional piece with a tiered necklace.
Pick this Masoom-loved festive plum number by Shyam Narayan Prasad that is inundated with block print. Style with simple stud earrings and metallic flats. If you're leaning toward the ultimate 'flower child' look, pair this outfit with bougainvillaea flower tiaras, especially if you have to attend a fun-filled mehendi ceremony.
More often than not, it's the styling that counts for a hippie look. And if you have an outfit which is every bit as chic and stunning as this kurta-pant set by Ritu Kumar, you'd want to transform the look too. Pair this outfit with tassel earrings, metal cuffs (just like Summiya here), and white sneakers for the non-conformist you.
Kaleidoscopic prints? Yes, please! We're all for this blush pink and blue set by Ritu Kumar which features baroque-inspired motifs. The relaxed fall too is the ultimate touchpoint for a boho-ready outfit. We suggest you pair this free-spirited piece with pink bead danglers.
