4 Celebrity Boho Looks We Adore

Today, we bring to you a post on celebrity bohemian style that we cannot get enough of and absolutely adore! These ladies know how to work the boho trend and we look to them for some mega style inspiration. Although we love Nicole Richie aka. the queen of boho style, we will not be including her in this post. You can read an older post on her ultra hip style here. The ladies we’re featuring tend to regularly rock the boho look and we’re impressed at how well they express their own personal style- something that’s easy to do when you add pattern, chunky jewelry, and lots of bold colour to your look!

1) Rachel Zoe

Stylist, Rachel Zoe, was a pioneer of boho style, her go-to look being oversized jewelry and loose-fitting clothing. We love that she’s sporting sequins, a bangle, and a chunky cocktail ring in the below image:

2) Jessica Biel

The naturally beautiful Jessica Biel usually goes for ultra feminine and flowy styles, which we adore. She knows how to effortlessly pull off a casual, bohemian look. We heart her in this Glamour UK jewelry and make-up look, below:

3) Heidi Klum

We didn’t realize how often Miss Klum actually goes boho! Whether she’s casually stepping out or attending an A-list event, she often plays with pattern and accessories looking nothing but totally chic! We love her colourful scarf, below, it reminds us of our own scarf collection!

4) Kate Bosworth

Famous for her California boho style, Kate Bosworth is a major summer music festival attendee making her a huge influence on casual, flower child- like fashion. She’s also great at pulling off a more sophisticated look, when the time calls for it. She looked fantastic in this look, below, for Nylon magazine.

Must Have Pieces for Your Winter Vacation

The showing of fashion collections is broken down into five different seasons instead of four. There is Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall and then there’s “Cruise”. The presentation of “cruise-wear” is meant to accommodate those lucky ladies and lads out there who are able to forgo the shivery, slushy, snowy madness that is Winter and fast-forward straight into Spring/Summer with the help of a tropical plane ticket or cruise. Our debut collection was created to be a melting-pot of different countries, cultures, styles, trends and in-turn, seasons. Our collection of tunics, dresses, blouses and accessories are meant to be very versatile and as season-less as possible. From our own experience, busy women do not always have the time to adjust their wardrobe from occasion to occasion let alone from season to season. Our clothes are designed in such a way that they can be dressed down or up, or made Summer or Winter appropriate with a simple change of styling. That being said, we have selected five pieces that we know would absolutely stun on a cruise or on a tropical island. With bright, juicy colours and soft, light-weight fabrics, these pieces will keep you looking hot whether you are lounging poolside avec un pina colada or are traipsing barefoot along a Mediterranean beach. 

Embellished Tunic Top – Destination: Greece

Crafted out of light-as-air textured cotton, our hand-beaded, rope belted tunic evokes images of white sandy beaches and azure seas and will help you to look like a Grecian goddess.

Floral Print Dress with Red Ruffles – Destination: Italy

This little floral printed number is not only beautiful with a romantic, vintage inspired charm, but it is also ridiculously comfortable and ideal for long walks up the cobble-stoned streets of Italy.

Maxi-Dress in Animal Print – Destination: Bali

Image

 

It seems that some delicate souls are scared to wear animal print (and with popular culture making feline inspired fabrics synonymous with cheesy night-clubs, heavily teased extensions and Jersey Shore, we can’t say that we blame them). Nonetheless, if the fabrics are of quality and the piece is beautifully cut, animal prints have a raw yet regal elegance that is timeless. Our animal print maxi-dress in frothy chiffon would be ideal for a luxurious dinner in Bali, immediately after getting your yoga on. 

Tunic Dress in Abstract Print – Destination: Morocco 

Image

This tribal printed stunner is made using a cotton/polyester chiffon vibrantly dyed in a juicy palette of cherry red, tangerine, lemon, violet and pink. With it’s short length and mod silhouette, this little tunic-dress is ideal for shimmying the night away in Morocco. 

Embroidered “Kurta” Top in Turquoise – Destination: India

Image

 

This turquoise tunic is inspired by the traditional Indian Kurta top. It’s loose shape is elegant and laid-back in a bohemian way. With this vibrant, head-turning shade of turquoise and luxurious, hand-done embroidery, this piece is ideal for India, a country rich in culture, colour, and design. 

Feel free to let us know your thoughts and if there are any pieces that we have missed!

Bohemian Beauty: Five Beauty Ideas To Ring in The New Year

20131228-153925.jpg
An effortlessly elegant look, adding a braid to an otherwise sleek up-do or strategically undone low bun, gives a laid back and beautiful easiness to your look. Simply create a braid or a couple braids and pin or wrap around your head like a hair band. If you are in a pinch for time, find a faux braid that matches the colour of your hair (can be found at most salons and drugstores).

20131228-154455.jpg
Whether you prefer them to be sweet and subtle or bold with bright colours, patterns, decals and the works – a lady’s nails can be her most head-turning (and inexpensive) accessories. Try a fearless tribal print with clashing colours to really create a statement at your New Years parties. They look fabulous gripping a champagne flute.

20131228-154951.jpg
Inspired by big-browed-beauties such as Lily Cole and Camilla Belle, nothing will frame your pretty peepers quite like a sculpted full set of eyebrows. When grooming your eyebrows remove only the stray hairs and leave the natural shape of your brows alone. Then fill in your brows with a pencil that is only slightly darker than your hair colour with slight, subtle strokes.

20131228-160026.jpg
Nude lips are not only classic, they are low-maintenance. A gal need not worry about grievances such as lipstick on her teeth or a dulling pout that she needs to continuously reprint throughout the evening. Simply prep with a good, matte concealer, dust with translucent powder and apply your nude lipstick of choice. Blot and then reapply for extra lasting power. Nude lips go great with sultry smokey eyes or bold and brightly coloured eyeshadow.

20131228-160536.jpg
The smudgy and mysterious smoky eye is a tried and true look and is always a sexy and glamorous look. That being said, when ringing in the New Year, we should all be shaking up our beauty routines. Try to create a smoky eye using complementing colours instead of classic charcoal and black. Create a sunset with warm shades or amber, peach and pink or an oceanic look with turquoise, cobalt and sea-foam green.

Are there any bohemian-inspired beauty looks that we have forgotten? Let us know in the comments and we will be sure to include some ideas within our next beauty post (with credit of course!). Happy New Years, have a wonderful time and be safe!

Indiverve Restyled | Ashley Tisdale

Maxi-dresses seemed to be reserved by most people for the spring and summer. We argue that they can be fabulous for any season (even wet and icy winter) when accessorized appropriately. We love Ashley Tisdale’s casual yet effortlessly chic look. With an all neutral palette of slate, taupe, black and silver, she keeps her look dynamic and subtly striking with sequins, a structured jacket and layered pendants.

What’s our take on Miss Tisdale’s understated ensemble?

We would pair either our charcoal grey (for a more subdued look) or leopard print maxi-dress with our silver paisley and turquoise pendants (one a longer 30” chain and the other on a shorter 20” chain) to recreate Ashley’s outfit with our innate bohemian flare.
