Hands up who loved Queen’s, Bohemian Rhapsody? Haha! Cue for a song … “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? …”
Oh gosh I did, I mean I knew all the words once upon a time. And this song is a great road trip pleaser, isn’t it?
“Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango? Thunderbolt and lightning … very very ….”
Get the picture! Are you singing along yet?
Well there I was belting this out over the noise of the vacuum when it came on the radio the other morning and it made me think about how much I love Bohemian anything.
Particularly Bohemian style. Which of course I put together in my own strange, but inimitable way, call it Boho if anyone asks, and just hope for the best.
For summertime I love colour, flower prints and just adding something a little unexpected to an everyday look. Not sure about you, but certainly for me it’s a pity I just missed the Swinging Sixties because I would have loved that era as a young adult.

For now though, if you’re a Boho wannabe this summer, here are few tips I’ve gathered up from around and about to share with you.
5 Boho Style Tips for Over 50’s
- Keep things feminine and chic by mixing oversized garments with tailored or fitted clothes.
- If you want to beat the heat (and cover from the sun) wear Boho style clothes that allow for airflow – like a kaftan and loose pants – topped with a hat.
- Boho colours are usually rich, warm and earthy – taupes, greens, burnt siennas, cream, khaki, beige, golden and Byzantium colours, but me, well I like to add a bit of colour too or go for floaty in monochrome.
- Boho can translate into street beggar or hippy if you’re not careful. So mix in elements of your own style to keep it chic and don’t over accessorize.
- Natural fibres and leather are definitely the go to’s for pure Boho style.
