Boho is a blend of color, ethnic touches and texture layered to perfection. Call it hippie, gypsy or tribal. I call it eclectic poetry. Boho hints at adventure, as if a well-traveled fashionista found treasure in pieces crafted by artisans from the other side of the world.
Boho or Bohemian style was made popular by Bohemians. Some view them as a group of artists or gypsies. Others view them as free-spirited adventurers who refused to conform to the norm. Today, Boho is more a look than a way of life. Men are at home with this style because of its ease. Mixing appeals to men who do not worry about the perfect matching combination.
Rick Saltarelli, of Salty Breeze Cruise Planners, shared this great travel tip; “The days are long gone when one traveled with multiple suitcases and large steamer trunks. Today’s savvy travelers know that the airlines limit baggage in three ways; number of pieces, size of luggage, and weight. Travelers should understand the type of whether they will encounter over the length of their trip and pack accordingly. Having layers that you can peel like an onion is always a good idea. I also suggest that it may be easier to do laundering part of the way through a trip then it is to pack and transport a second piece of luggage.”
Select and pack suitable clothing to enjoy your holiday the moment you arrive. When packing follow our advice:
Choose natural fabrics, such as cotton, silk, linen, and wool in solid colors or prints inspired by tribal patterns. Natural fabrics wear well and breathe, keeping you cool. Comfort is always important when it comes to wardrobe but paramount while on vacation.
Reach for accessories; hats, scarves, necklaces and bracelets made from hand crafted natural materials. “Originally Unique Accessories is a custom handmade jewelry line for men and women. The Bohemian look is one of the hottest looks out right now. That’s why I wanted to create a modern and unique look for anyone who wears it. It can make a bold statement anywhere they go.” Said Tiffany Garvin.
Do your research:
Speak to your travel agent or surf the web to find weather conditions for time of the year you plan to travel. Planning prior to packing day will allow you to prepare for the climate.
Spending less time arranging for dry cleaning means you will have more time and money to enjoy on vacation. Choose clothing made from washable, lightweight fabrics that dry quickly. Care for your investment and expect to wear tried and true pieces a decade from now.
