Spring and fall are like cousins; one entering the house the other left before. A transient. The effect is quite different though. Their cherished memories and craving are poles (or should we say seasons) apart. The passage our bohemian souls endure certainly shows when it comes to Bohemian attire tailored to express and celebrate the seasons.
WHAT TO WEAR THIS SPRING
One of the most celebrated and primitive elements in nature, as well as in man-made designs are symmetrical patterns. Patterns were discovered and appreciated long before we discovered expressionist or abstract art. The predictable repetitions amplify thoughts and give the mind a strong resolve. Bohemian style dwells on simplicity and positive energy. Wear a nicely done pattern, simple or complex, this spring and let others feel your boosted inner strength. Kick start the warm side of the year.
BANJARA DENIM WITH BASIC LINEN
Notice those tiny blossoms? Small buds hibernating buried under snow and sometimes frozen in icy winters? Now is the time to come out with grandiose. Show what you endured. Throw a thick hand-crafted Banjara Denim Jacket on top of a delicate pure linen top. Dress up like a cherry blossom. Display undying zeal for life. An armor crafted with utmost passion and love on top of a casual but delicate survivalist spirit.
SKINNY JEANS, PRINT TEE AND CROCHET STROLL VEST
If the slick-chic look is your thing, spring is your best time to start building up for sizzling summer. Get those skinny denims out, embroidered ankle boots for a firm grip, and a low neck printed top for an “on-the-go look”. The idea is to look swift, spot craftsmanship with embroidery, and display boldness with a cool t-shirt with a sign or minimal text on it. A crochet stroll vest will definitely add the breeziness. You got wings gal, fly!
TURBAND AND BEADS
Choose a drapey, full skirt with a petite sleeveless top and load ‘em beads up. Wear ethnic boho sandals and support the artwork on sandals with matching toe rings. Yes, we are leaning towards gypsy looks. Wear boho stack bracelets and match them with beaded necklaces. Contrast is very important here. One of these three—top, bottoms, or accessories—should create space, when the rest of them can populate that space. For example, a plain monotonous top gives you ample space to bring in color and crowd with accessories.
Bodies are still adjusting to sunlight knocking on the doors early. Our duvets are still warm and comforting. Take your cue from the sweet cooing in the backyard. A blossom, a bird. Spring, with any other name, will still be spring. With a range of bohemian colors and textures, we at Woodstock Lodge are always charting beautiful plans for your beautiful day. Grab a cup of coffee, get your hands dirty with soil and mulch. Let us celebrate the skies opening with endless new possibilities. Dress up. Flaunt it.
