Boho Style: Looks We Adore

Boho Style

What comes to mind when you think of bohemian style? For us, its all about ethnic, floral, geometric, psychedelic, and paisley prints. Natural materials, embroidery, beading, fringe,  ruffles, vintage, 60′ s and 70’s style, lace, and leather are several more words that come to mind when thinking about what elements are associated to bohemian style.

Celebrity Influence

Nicole Richie and Sienna Miller do the hippie chic look very well. These two fashionable ladies helped popularize and revive this trend during the mid 2000’s and beyond. They both favour wearing anything loose and flowy and creating one of a kind styles by adding accessories that are full of expression.

Eclectic & Alluring Fashion

One of the reasons we love the boho look so much is because its such a great way to express one’s own individuality and taste. Eclectic and alluring, boho style is such a refreshing contradiction to the plain and simple fashion we’re used to seeing every day. Adding touches of bohemian inspired items to a simple look can pep it up instantly and reveal an interesting and enviable look.

All of these clothing and jewelry items are available at our bohemian friendly e-store. Just click on the links below to shop them. By the way, we came up with the name Indiverve because Indi- stands for “indie” or “independent” and it also makes reference to India, a dynamic and influential country close to our hearts. Verve signifies “energy” and “enthusiasm” which is what we strive for in our day to day activities. To read more about us and why we started this Vancouver, Canada based company, click here.

How to Get Boho Waves

Messy and loose boho style waves can look really chic for an every day look at the office or for a big event. Casual and effortless looking, this hairstyle works best on naturally wavy hair. Straight haired girls can achieve a similar look by using a small barrel curling iron and curling small sections of hair. Here, we focus on skipping the curling iron altogether and instead using bobby pins, patience and some good hair twisting skills. Mila Kunis, Cameron Diaz, Alexa Chung and Kate Hudson all provide inspiration of how to do pull off this enviable hairstyle.

Follow the steps to get the look:

1. Apply some type of styling product to damp hair. Texturizing cream or mousse works best for this particular style.

2. Separate hair into 1 inch sections and twist them from roots to ends. Secure pieces with bobby pins.

3. Dry your hair thoroughly by letting it naturally air dry or if you ‘re in a hurry, with the blast of a blow dryer.

4. Remove each bobby pin and let the twists of hair loose. Do not brush them out.

5. Gently shake your hair out and spray your head with light to medium hold hairspray.

Voila! You’re done. Now go get ’em!

For tips on how to get long, shiny and healthy looking hair, try the popular Indian beauty tip of using hair oil regularly. It really makes a huge difference!

Nicole Richie- Bohemian Fashion Inspiration

Nicole Richie’s style has evolved a lot over the years. We love how she rocks the boho glam/ haute hippie look so well. Known for sporting maxi dresses, funky chunky jewelry, and loose braided hairstyles, she’s truly a fashion inspiration when it comes to expressing her individuality. A true trendsetter with effortless style, she is fantastic at accessorizing and she is often seen wearing vintage items with a modern twist. Her love of oversize jewelry and accessories has led her to develop her very own fashion line inspired by 1960’s hippie style. She also does a great job of pulling off the hippie headband look. Take note, Nicole Richie has enviable bohemian style indeed!

Sneak Peek- Leather Cuff Bracelets

Leather cuff bracelets are very rock star! Not for the dainty or super feminine, this type of edgy jewelry looks great no matter what season. A great way to dress up a casual t shirt and jeans outfit, these cuffs are versatile enough to wear from day to night. Layer them with other bracelets for a look that’s trendy at the moment. Silver and gold look best with leather so try them with these colours. Another idea is to pair them with beaded or gemstone bracelets. They also look fantastic when worn with cocktail rings, especially blue or turquoise ones.

We’re very excited to soon be carrying a few different designs of  leather cuff bracelets in our online store. We’ll have them with and without studs and embellishments on black, white, brown and deep red colours of leather. We’ll also have very simple designs including a braided style that will be perfect for mixing, matching and layering for a cool, bohemian style. Here’s a sneak peek of a few leather cuff bracelets from Indiverve.

Funky Feather Jewelry for Spring

Feather jewelry, another celebrity inspired trend from last year, continues to be in style throughout the spring/summer. Feathers as jewelry is making its way not only as earrings but also in necklaces, clothing and as hair accessories. Wearing feathers is a hip, bohemian look that first became popular during the 1970’s when free spirited women wore them in their hair. This trend has become ultra popular this year with the revival of 60’s and 70’s vintage style. The nice thing about feathers as jewelry is its so comfortable and light to wear- perfect for a casual and funky look.

For fashion forward style, longer and larger feathers seem to be the most popular but its easy enough to find smaller feather pieces as well. If you like to be the centre of attention, then feather jewelry is for you. If you want to show off your hairstyle or cheekbones, feather jewelry will definitely help flatter these features. Pieces in teal blue, bright pink, red, indigo and sand hues are all hot this spring season.

Below are Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, Garcelle Beauvais, and Sienna Miller all rocking the feather jewelry trend! We love Garcelle’s bright blue earrings which contrast nicely with her cheery orange top. Gwyneth’s hot pink earrings really pop against her revealing black blouse.
