What exactly is boho style?
If you’ve landed here looking for some summer wedding outfit inspo, you might not know exactly what a boho look is. Not to worry, we’re here to give you everything you need to know about boho style, and by the end of this blog, you’ll know if it’s the look for you.
Boho is short for Bohemian and describes the type of fashion seen in the 1960s and ’70s on free-spirited women. It is traditionally associated with long-flowing skirts, tiered structured dresses, embroidered or embellished fabrics, fringed accessories like jackets and bags, and peasant blouses, to name a few.
In recent years we’ve seen the traditional boho styles combined with more modern trends to create a modern take on the boho style. You can still expect to see flowing dresses, tiered skirts and peasant blouses, but often with more modern fabrics and patterns. You’ll also see these traditional styles paired with simpler modern-day pieces to balance the look, giving a fresh take on bohemian fashion.
We’ve pulled out some examples of modern-day boho looks as seen on style icons Sienna Miller and Florence Welch.
Boho Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas
Now we’ve got to grips with what boho fashion is, let’s discover some beautiful boho outfit ideas that will see you through the wedding season. And in true boho style, we’ll explore how you can get the most out of your purchases to create new looks over and over again by accessorising with boho jewellery brand ChloBo.
Chlobo is the ultimate boho jewellery brand. Bringing boho styles inspired by cultures and symbology from around the world to create fashion with meaning. Each piece is handmade in the UK, from ethically sourced materials, embracing bohemian values throughout production to styling.
Boho wedding guest outfit idea 1 – The statement neckline
We ADORE this dress from ASOS. Embracing the traditional tiered boho style with a colour palette and pattern to match, this dress is the ultimate boho piece. This flowing design with blouson sleeves is perfect for a full-day wedding to ensure you stay comfy and stylish all day long!
With a deep v neck, and long sleeves, the best way to accessorise this dress is with statement necklaces and some drop hoop earrings. You can even add an anklet, despite the maxi-length cut, thanks to the slit detailing.
We’ve paired the dress with the ChloBo Gold Eternity Necklace. A simple choker style necklace can easily be paired with other necklaces for a beautiful layered style. It also holds beautiful meaning, ideal for the wedding environment! We also have a silver alternative if you’re not a fan of gold!
Next we’ve added the ChloBo Gold Strength of the Moon Necklace to make the most of that stunning neckline, with the beautiful drop charm detailing.
Finally, we’ve brought the whole look together with a detailed hoop earring from ChloBo, the Gold Moonbeam Hoop Earrings, also available in silver. If you want to go even bolder with your jewellery styling and embrace some more of the beautiful symbolic jewellery from ChloBo, why not try a drop hoop earring for extra detail?
Boho wedding guest outfit idea 2 – Bold & Beautiful
If you’re looking for a boho wedding guest outfit but are not a lover of dresses, this statement piece is the one for you. We’ve found this stunning orange boho jumpsuit on ASOS
and could not imagine anything comfier or more beautiful for this wedding season.
With its high neck, this look is all about the bracelets and earrings, and ChloBo is known worldwide for its boho stacking bracelets.
We’re kicking this look off with some hoop earrings as bold as the jumpsuit. With ChloBo’s iconic Moon Flower Hoops in Silver. These earrings are made for an updo with a large hoop with beautiful moon flower pendant detail.
Next, it’s time to finish off the look with a beautiful handmade bracelet stack from ChloBo. ChloBo’s stacking bracelets can be worn alone for a simple touch of detail, but they really shine and embrace that boho look when stacked up. You can quickly build your stack by purchasing one of their bracelet sets, and that’s what we’ve paired this beautiful boho jumpsuit with. If you really want to go big for your first ChloBo purchase, why not treat yourself to the Silver Divine Stack of 5 Bracelets?
Boho wedding guest outfit idea 3 – Simple elegance
With this next boho wedding dress, we’ve gone for a simple summer dress that you can dress up for a wedding with layers of jewellery. The perfect thing about this dress is that it can be worn for any summer event and dressed up and down as needed.
As a strappy sun dress, this cut gives you the room to go for a full jewellery look, with earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Given the feminine style and soft blue hue, we think this piece works best with delicate jewellery, which is why we’ll add some precious stones into the mix for this look.
For this look, we’re starting with a simple huggie hoop earring from ChloBo, and then we’ve added two delicate necklaces. First, is the Silver Twisted Rope Chain necklace, a simple piece which can be worn with any outfit, alone or layered up. Then we’ve added a longer chain pendant, Silver Bobble Chain Feather Heart Necklace, a beautiful piece that works perfectly with the feminine style we’re creating.
Finally, we’ve kept the beautiful and delicate look together with layers of pearl and silver bracelets. We’ve added the Silver & Pearl Adults Life Long Magic Set of 2 Bracelets and the Silver & Pearl Love and Protection Set of 2 Bracelets, for a delicate yet layered look.
