A Bohemian Nostalgia!

Indian fashion blog_streetstyle_boho chic_bohemian look2

Bohemian Nostalgia

A ‘Boho-at-heart’ that I am, the 70s era is something I look up-to. From the music by Queen, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Doors that liberated us, to Zeenat Aman’s & Ali MacGraw’s chic street style that taught us how to add some bohemian elements to our everyday outfits! Indeed the 70s era was ‘A golden age’, that witnessed a significant fashion revival inspired equally by music, art and culture.

Since these trends are back this summer, here’s my tribute to those ‘Boho’ style icons from the 70s. Another style inspiration is my Mom, her college pictures back in the 70s had her embracing the flared high-waist trousers, maxi-dresses in easy silhouettes with a touch of earthy accents, pastel shades, floral and paisley prints.

No matter what time of the year it is, my personal style for the city walk is either Neo-Ethnic or Boho. It couldn’t have been better personified than, this dress from Max Fashion, a perfect balance of the ‘Pastel Green’ colour with white floral prints and an easy silhouette.

A li’l about my city: Bangalore – the garden city of India, during my childhood (the 90s) used to be known for its green sightings everywhere. You could just soothe your eyes with the greenery from any one of those hillocks within the city, indeed a heaven with a pleasant weather; a stark contrast to the bustling Cosmopolitan it is now. Growing up here, I remember visiting these scenic, green & quaint places within the city, most of them lost to the concrete jungle now. We hardly had any towering buildings until circa 1997; M.G. Road had a few lovely villas inspired by the Victorian architecture.  This post attempts to bring out the long lost charm of my city that was; giving you an idea of the greenery Bangalore was surrounded by, back then!

Styling Note:

Adding a little of all the 70s Trends: the layered look with that asymmetric cape in pastel green, the beaded gladiators, the stacked arm candies in turquoise, pastel green, antique gold and the floral prints in the dress along with the floral headband create all the drama that is required. Accents of earthy shades ranging from Tan to dark brown and then transitioning to gold all from the same colour palette, give the outfit a neutral balance and all the ‘Boho’ vibe it demands. I did give my hair those breezy beach waves, drawing inspiration from Farrah Fawcett.
