The boho style has been around for years, and it’s no wonder why, it’s flowy, dreamy, ethereal and very figure flattering. This year is all about giving that soft gentle style a slightly more modern edge. Normally the bohemian look is all about airy and light clothing pieces. But this year designers and celebrities are pairing the boho style with rocker accents like leather, animal prints and studded boots. This new twist on an old classic is a refreshing way to carry the on the boho trend in 2012.

For a casual boho chic look, try pairing a light colored chiffon knee length dress with black studded ankle boots, then finish off the style with boho accessories like stacked bangles and effortless wavy hair, similar to Jessica Szohr’s signature bohemian looks. For a dressier look try pairing a boho print maxi dress with a black leather jacket, wear navel length layered necklaces to complete your ensemble.

The best addition to the boho chic outfit is creatively styled hair; this will really polish off your look from head to toe. Try one of the hairstyles made popular in part by Nicole Richie, she has been known to rock the braided head band as well as wispy messy buns that scream boho chic.
