I have split “boho” into nine different sub-genres. Here in Part I, I include examples and elements of the first five and tomorrow I will show the other four as well as a short summary.
Vintage Boho looks like it came straight from the page of a ’70s fashion magazine. The textures and shapes are key to this look.
maxi dresses // long, messy hair // leather // high waisted denim // flare legs and bellbottoms // vests // bell sleeves
Beachy Boho reminds you of what a lot of women pack for their Summer vacation. This look is light and breezy, perfect for a day on the beach or a night sipping cool drinks. The light colors and relaxed fit are key to this look.
white // crochet // pastels // sandals // sun hats // sea spray hair // loose fit
Stevie Nicks is the queen of Edgy Boho. This look is a little bit hippie and a little bit rock and roll. Dark colors and mystical details are key to this look.
rock tees // velvet // black leather // dark lace // crystals // creative layering // bold accessories
Hipster Boho is the style that combines “boho” looks with other types of style. It might have elements from different decades, like a ’90s floral print on a loose fitting pant. Looking eclectic and having creativity to mix styles is key to this look.
thrifted items // whimsical patterns // unique accessories // creative pattern and texture mixing
Country Boho is a look you might expect to see on the streets of Nashville. This style takes boho elements and gives them a southern flair. Cowboy boots and a feminine bent are key to this style.
cowboy boots // metals // large belts // feminine details // cowgirl hats // tee shirts // denim
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the rest of the boho styles.

**The images I used to make the composites were all found on Pinterest. In most instances, the links were no longer working so I didn’t link each one.
