Since time immemorial, the bohemian trend is synonymous to everyone who wants to live an unconventional, carefree lifestyle. While it has a long and colorful history dating back to the early 19th century, the contemporary bohemian fashion is now mixed with other trends like rock, folk, and lace and form the “boho chic.”
This style has become a staple in most popular outdoor music festivals like Coachella in the US and Beyond the Valley in Australia. Those who want to achieve this look wear clothes with flowy fabrics or loose fashion pieces in neutral shades. Some also add a pop of colour to their overall ensemble by putting on different types of bohemian jewellery pieces.
If you plan to pull off the bohemian look, here are several jewellery suggestions to complete your outfit.

One of the critical elements in the modern bohemian trend is the fringed necklace. The fringes are generally present in most boho-inspired accessories to finish off the look. It usually acts as the decorative portion of the outfit and adds more length to the overall style. Most of the materials used for jewellery fringes include threads of leather or suede or threads of gold or silver. You can wear this bohemian jewellery over your favourite off-shoulder blouses to highlight your beautiful neckline, or wear it on top of your plain tee or tank top to make it your statement piece for the day.
Another popular jewellery piece worn by boho fans is the layered necklaces. It goes well with any white or blush-coloured top. This type of ornaments sometimes come with plenty of charms and pendants tied with a long, delicate chain that you can wrap around your neck and arrange it to look like you’re wearing multiple necklaces. You may also mix and match necklaces with different lengths and materials and wear it on top of each other to create the layered look. If you plan to do the latter, the thicker chain has to be longer than the necklace with the thinner chain to balance the appearance.
