70s Inspired Boho Retro Outfit
Lately I’ve felt quite drawn to 70s inspired boho outfits. Admittedly, now and then, I love the bohemian style for the free spirit that it conveys. I may have mentioned before that I haven’t yet settled for one particular vintage style or era. Perhaps you’ve already read my post about the 70s inspired romper outfits?There are so many things that I love about retro fashion! To me style is a great way of self-expression. Perhaps I am still in the process of becoming and developing style. Maybe I can also say that it mirrors my personal development and who I want to be.
Boho Style in the Speicherstadt
On my recent shooting in the Speicherstadt Hamburg, I wore this lovely 70s style dress by Sugarhill Brighton which I got via TopVintage. This is the Elspeth Alaskan Wilds Shirt Dress by the way. I am in love with this rich brown colour and the bear print. It is perhaps not explicitly a spring dress but I love it in all seasons. As you can see, my dress matches perfectly the red brick buildings in the Speicherstadt.I’ve combined this dress with a black leather jacket by Gipsy (Mauritius) and some black boots. In my opinion, the boho look goes very well with Native American prints. The fringe scarf I am wearing here is by Codello.
Navajo Jewelry and Boho Style
I also believe that Native American jewelry is a special addition to the 70s boho style. Hence, I have a small collection of Navajo jewelry and here I am wearing some silver conchas (earrings).In this shooting I am embracing natural hair. I may never get a perfect and sleek hairstyle though. In fact, I find it difficult to do classic vintage hairstyle from the 40s and 50s.
This kind of style reminds me of Fleetwood Mac’s song ‘Gypsy’ but I think you get the vibe. However, it may be a curse not being able to settle for one style. There are so many things that I like at particular times in my life.
Here I am wearing this dress with a large retro fringe scarf by Loevenich.In the end, it is only fashion and thus an expression no? There are no limits to combining styles and the less sense it makes the better! Do you think this style suits me? Let me know in the comments below.
