Making its debut at the Spring 2024 New York Runway last year in 2023, the Boho-Chic vibe is back.
From modern-day hippie hairstyles, flowing gowns, and eclectic jewellery pieces, the celebration of freedom, self-expression, and a connection to nature is what to expect this year in fashion, beauty and lifestyle. And what’s not to love about the modern day boho-chic?
Channeling your inner hippie is not just a style choice; it’s a lifestyle that embraces peace, love, nature and natural beauty.
Tap into your bohemian spirit and start incorporating earthy and eclectic elements into your beauty routine and style for valentines, and channel one of these lovely and romantic ways to celebrate the season of love on Valentines day.
Valentine’s Day Date Wardrobe Ideas:
This year, think browns, greens, and earthy tones to spice up your wardrobe. These colors will add a natural, grounded edge to any outfit. Pair an olive green maxi dress with brown ankle boots for the ultimate boho chic look. These tones create a relaxed, effortless look that’s perfect for daily wear.
Opt for flowing, pastel shaded tie-dye garments, loose-fitting pants, and embrace natural fabrics.
Accessorise with beads, feathers, and flower crowns for that added free-spirited touch. In the realm of hairstyles, consider going for loose waves, braids, or even experimenting with different color trends.
Foster a love for vintage finds and sustainable fashion, exploring thrift stores and markets for unique pieces that tell a story.
Spend Less Valentine’s Day Date:
Money is tight for many right now. So, instead of booking an expensive restaurant, look at creating something more intimate with your partner this year where you don’t have to spend too much money.
Invoke your naturalistic Boho side, and find a rustic location and pack a picnic, bake some sweet treats, make a cheese platter, and don’t forget the wine (or something non-alcoholic) and enjoy spending quality time together surrounded by fresh air, trees, sand (if you’re at the beach) and nature.
Or embrace mindfulness and do meditation or yoga together, either at a class or at home. Embodying a mindset that values harmony, individuality, and a commitment to making the world a groovier and happier place.
Hand-made Gifts are Better:
Instead of spending excessive amounts of money on expensive gifts, like giant teddy bears, red roses and chocolates, try making something unique to give to your partner. Handmade gifts are the best and mean more, because of the time and effort you put into making the gift.
Being a Boho-Chic means thinking of the planet and being more sustainable. Spending money on items that wont last and could end up in the garbage or worse is not the way to go.
Make your own homemade chocolates, or mini cupcakes. Or if you are really adventurous, try making your own candles from left over candles, by melting them altogether in a pot, then pour into a glass jar ad a store bought wick and decorate.
Share the Love:
Valentine’s Day can be a lonely day, a reminder for people that they are single or alone. Instead of keeping the day (or night) reserved for just you and your partner, why not plan a gathering of friends, or family – maybe even combine the two, and celebrate love together.
Love is about harmony, care and thought for the people (an even animals) around you who you share this plate with.
Celebrate by hosting a laid back brunch, lunch or dinner at home, or at the beach, or at a park, and share with your single friends to make their day more enjoyable.
