Boho Jewelry Looks for Festival Season
Festival season is as much about fashion, as it is about live music. Aside from the awesome live performances, it is a celebration of bohemian fashion, where the patrons don quirky, hipster-style outfits, reminiscent of the free-spirited, creative vibe of the swinging sixties. Boho jewelry adds the final finishing touch to a cohesive festival fashion look, so choosing the right boho jewelry pieces is an important step in developing a relevant music festival style.
There is a fine line between boho-chic and a hobo-tragic and that “effortless” look you were aiming for can easily appear unkempt if you make the wrong fashion choices. So to help you avoid any boho boo-boos, here are a few coveted boho jewelry looks to incorporate into your festival wardrobe that can help transform an outfit from ordinary to groovy baby!
Boho Jewelry Arm Candy
Just like layering necklaces, layering bracelets and bangles creates a more eclectic look, and adds texture and diversity to your ensemble. The arm candy trend is totally hipster-chic and an easy way to achieve a boho jewelry look that’s perfect for an outdoor music festival. Layer different textures like these spike bangle bracelets with this Lucky Eye Red Wrap Bracelet or go for stacked pieces that come built in with drama and colorful effect. This Swarovski Crystal Friendship Bracelet is hand-made with a macramé look that is adorned with Swarovski crystals. It’s the perfect testament to boho-chic.
Stacking rings is another way to embrace the arm party movement. Try combination of different size and design rings to create a dramatic effect. Wear a Gold Allie Ring with the Pave Deep V Ring on alternate fingers and finish off the look with a few midi rings like this Gina Cueto criss cross design.
Boho Jewelry Ode to Vintage
Go for jewelry that could double as treasured keepsakes from your stylish granny’s collection. Modern pieces with an old-world edge like these Courtney Lee Collection earrings make beautiful accents to a bohemian outfit when they are worn as statement pieces. Oversize pendant necklaces featuring large semi-precious stones also work, like this Teardrop Amethyst Pendant Necklace that retains a hand-made rustic quality that perfectly suits the bohemian sensibility.
Boho Jewelry Flower Power
Another remnant of 1960s culture, flower crowns and headbands adorned with flowers, real or fake, are a huge trend in boho jewelry. Go for oversized petals for a romantic look that has an ethereal quality. Vanessa Hudgens, Annasophia Robb, and Lucy Hale wore flower crowns at 2013 Coachella, and the trend has stuck around since then, promising to blossom beautifully during this year’s festival season.
Boho Jewelry Indian-inspired Accents
If you’re not game for the “flower power” look, but still interested in exotic headwear, try Indian-inspired head chains that you can wear over your hair and on the forehead. They are universally flattering and look best when worn with a center part or over bangs.
Alternatively, you can go for bold face jewelry like Kendall Jenner, who bravely rocked an oversized nose ring that connects to an earring by a chain. If you’re not as fearless as Ms Jenner, go for a pared down version of the nose ring with a small hoop looped through the nostril, or a nose cuff in your septum piercing. Bindis, or gems adhered between the eyebrows, are also really neat, and can be worn in place of head chains to frame up your face.
Boho Jewelry Flash Tattoos
Though not technically jewelry in the traditional sense, flash tattoos are quite popular boho jewelry accents. These metallic, temporary “tats” can be worn in place of, or alongside jewelry. From flash tat necklaces, bracelets, upper arm bracelets, anklets and even as pretty metallic body art, the possibilities of flash tats are limited only by your creative placement.
