When it comes to personal style, I'm not even 1% bohemian. However, I believe in trying other styles of dressing, in order to:
1. Hone in on your own personal style 2. Get yourself out of a style rut
3. Have some fun and explore other sides of your personality
You might find that you aren't just one thing, but have facets to your personality. If that's the case, your wardrobe should give you the opportunity to play. AND you should "play"
This is the only maxi skirt I own, bought it for a very specific event. But this Zara skirt is the inspiration for the whole outfit.
Building on the colors and print of the skirt, so this t-shirt made sense. Simple sweater to anchor the print. Check out the relationship between the tee and the skirt. LURVE IT!
Instead of thinking "this outfit is bohemian enough, I'm wearing a maxi skirt after all!" I'm taking it a step further with this Indian embroidered scarf with poms. Neutral colors keep me from going into crazy lady land.
Now jacket... this one is tricky, because I could have gone with something printed and tasseled or embroidered, BUT I have enough going on. Went with a neutral, deconstructed field jacket. Bringing shape to the outfit was the goal here.
I'm all for a personal uniform of something that "works for you" as long, as you don't feel like you've dialed it in with what's easy. Doing what's easy leads to uninspired dressing - which is a life no-no!
Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort to see what shakes out!
