I Live in California and Have "New Bohemian" Style—These Are My Go-To Outfits
Channel your free-spirited side.
Bohemian style comes with a long history, most closely associated with the hippie movement of the late '60s and '70s that stood against conventional lifestyles and became synonymous with artistic expression. The era featured new clothing styles such as ethnic dresses, embroideries, mixed prints, earthy shades, volume, fringe, and flared silhouettes.
The free-spirited bohemian style has certainly evolved throughout the centuries, but the boho hype has never really gone away. We still see elements of the aesthetic on countless runways, with plenty of brands and retailers leaning into the creative aesthetic.
While the term "boho chic" may feel slightly dated these days—perhaps mustering up images of Sienna Miller in peasant-style dresses, slouchy beige boots, and floppy hats circa 2005, today there is a somewhat "new bohemian" style that has emerged with brands such as Dôen, Christy Dawn, Love Shack Fancy, Faithfull the Brand along with designers such as Ulla Johnson tapping into the artistic, romantic, and nomadic bohemian in a modern way.
So how do you nail new bohemian style? We tapped into free-spirited fashion muse—California based model, and singer/songwriter Alyssa Miller of Primrose Forever Sanctuary to share some of her relaxed go-to outfits that we think encapsulates the aesthetic perfectly.
