Picking Out the Perfect Outfit to go with a Boho Feather Headband
The boho fashion look has carved itself a firm place in the marketplace; with its mixture of flowing styles and quirky combinations appealing to shoppers across the age groups, according to reports on fashion and recruitment executives. Accessories play a large part in creating the overall boho chic ensemble, but these go beyond the standard jewellery, bags, scarves and hats to include things like headbands.
Boho feather headbands are a particularly popular item, especially at festivals and casual gatherings. They definitely add an amazing extra something, and they genuinely look great with whatever you choose to wear. However, it’s fair to say that when you team a feather headband with a certain boho fashion look you turn a great outfit into an amazing one.
If you are keen to try this fun look out we have some tips to help you choose the perfect outfit to go with it.
- Mix and match plain and attention grabbing
Boho style feather headbands generally consist of a braided or plain strap which sits on the forehead and ties at the back of the head, where different designs of feathers are placed. Some are very plain and use only a few feathers, which gives you much more leeway to be liberal with the style, colour and general look of your outfit; whereas others are ornate and take centre stage, so a plainer outfit would be best to avoid losing that impact.
Boho headdresses with long, flowing feathers look amazing with long flowing outfits. This could be a floaty boho dress or an oversized tunic with jeans. Shorter feathered headdresses look good with crisper, more fitted outfits. Although less common there are some headdresses where the feathers hang down way past the shoulders – a look which just screams to be matched with an off the shoulder top for a sexy and chic look.
For a top class win pick out a strong colour from your feathered headband and work your outfit around it. For example, this boho feather headbands would go really well with a blue top or dress of the same shade, or you could choose to pick out the pink of the beads with accessories chosen to match. The same principle applies to the design of your headdress. Lots feature a small dreamcatcher, which looks amazing with a lace style top or shawl which picks up on that intricate spiders web design.
At the beach or at a festival you could team your boho feather headband with a cute white dress, crazy patterned kaftan style shift, or a lace style throwover and casual shorts for a relaxed but still edgy look.
Although wearing a boho headdress with the feathers at the back is the most popular choice some people style them with the detail to the side of the head. Both look fine of course, but side feathers don’t distract from outfits with a key detail, like a cut-out, at the back.
