Ruffle shorts, bell-bottoms, off-the-shoulder tops, sandals on feet and statement jewellery, it feels like a repeat of Coachella outfits on the streets again! The bohemian trend has once again presented itself, ladies and gentleman.
Taking a look back at history, bohemian fashion started in the 20th century between 1960s to 1970s, and guess what? It’s back and it is going to stay!
What concludes as the ‘bohemian’ trend?
The list goes on and on, but let’s take a look at a few. The bohemian style is all about free and flow. It’s loose and flowy, unlike the classy chic look where everything is tight from top to bottom, the bohemian or ‘boho’ look is more relaxed and ‘breezy’. Colours are found everywhere in boho fashion ranging from a bright red to a mustard yellow. Then comes the skirts with ruffles at the bottom and flared bottom jeans also known as bell-bottoms. As you can imagine by now, it gives a fun personality in fashion and you should probably invest in some of these clothing options because it’s going to be here for quite some time. A brief take on the shoe options, sandals are the most common form of the boho style, whether it be heeled, laced up or flats, either way, it’ll pair well with your bohemian look.
Instead of wearing your favourite denim shorts paired with a graphic tee, you can try switching it up. Test out an off-the-shoulder white top to go with you denim shorts or pair your graphic tee with a ruffled skirt to spice up the look. If you want to make it more interesting and push it further, you could add statement earrings or a necklace to go with the outfit and finally, complete the look with your favourite sunnies and kick in some new sandals.
If you want more inspiration, I’d turn to our favourite Coachella queen, Vanessa Hudgens. As we all know, her style embodies the bohemian look and she rocks it everyday! Go to Pinterest and pin the outfits that she wears and get inspiration from it. Not a fan of Vanessa Hudgens, that’s okay! I hear Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars also loves embracing the bohemian look in her style, you can especially observe it in her vacation style!
Fashion designing, an art, isn’t it? Sips of coffee, the strike of the clock at midnight, bags under eyes, every detail focused closely, the sound of the sewing machine dragging on and on, the clear starter pack for beginners. Dedication is key and creativity is necessary. Fashion is an art not a joke. A huge praise for the individuals aspiring to be a designer.
Eli Saab, a young boy starting sewing as a child. At the age of eight, already aspiring to be a designer, what hopes and dreams he had. An eight-year-old boy dedicated to live a life of sewing, designing, and creating. Creativity sparked his mind and it sure did him well.
Eli Saab, an eighteen-year old, living in Paris and chained to fashion. A teenager with a fashion label. Dedication in his heart, results scored out of it, excellent ones. Saab made his way through fashion with a unique image, fusing western and eastern culture. Some call it designing, I call it diversity. Diversity in his soul, with an outcome of art and creativity.
Eli Saab’s artistic designs is played in his work, his art. It’s imaged in his collection of dresses, whatever the dress, however the length, whatever the style, his signature is displayed.
Extended long streaks of colour, lining towards the center and sides, making its way down the dress. The flowers blossoming on the shoulders, chest, stomach and towards the end, petals fallen, getting lesser and lesser until it disappears before touching the ground. Eli Saab has signed his art.
Eli Saab exhibits a consistency in his line of work, a story has been told. Simple yet delicate flowers, expanding itself, stretching itself, its beauty overpowering as the signature design, ready to blossom. As it does, makes it way down and continues to spread its angelic bloom. However, the blossom comes to an end, retiring as it fulfilled its purpose. Flower petals fall but before touching down, it vanishes into thin air.
His story has been wonderful, sharing it with the world, starting off as an eight-year-old with a dream, a huge one. Now, fulfilled his dream, introducing his name to the individuals who appreciate fashion, art. Making his way down the streets of Hollywood, touching the red carpets, displaying his work on models and celebrities, running fashion shows. What a dream he had and how lucky he was to have it come true.
The beauty in Eli Saab.
