How to Wear Boho at Any Age


I bet you’ve noticed Boho in the shops this year…it seems to have been everywhere.

Until recently I chose to put it in the “too difficult to wear over 40” box – under the impression that it involved showing your stomach and wearing dainty little crochet tops… nothing I’m going to do anymore (unless on a very remote beach in NZ – smile).

However as Boho relentlessly stays hot on the top trend list and keeps on appearing in shop windows it became clear that there’s a lot more to Boho. In fact it’s actually the perfect trend for this time of year as it also works fabulously with a bit of layering.

5 Simple tricks to wearing Boho after 40 are:

  1. Combine with booties
  2. Stick to the fun dresses
  3. Combine with small shoulder bag
  4. Wear with a denim jacket
  5. Wear with fine rimmed glasses (preferably round).
