So, how to nail a luxe boho chic look?
While bohemian fashion might appear very relaxed and gypsy like but it’s tricky to pull off. There goes a bit of layering, a tinge of sass and a lot of freshness behind that languid appearance. We researched and came out with a few classy options and pieces worn by Bollywood celebs who nailed the look like a pro.
Now, there can be multiple variations in layered clothing. You can opt for a flowy skirt/ shorts teamed with a front-tie shirt and slouchy distressed booties like fringed suede, gladiator sandals, knee-high gladiators. Asymmetrical dresses, hipster pants, the options are numerous. Scroll down to see some of our favourite celeb looks.
