Where do you go for inspiration on how to combine jewelry to achieve a perfectly chic boho style? We’re betting you like to frequent the Pinterest website where visuals are what it’s all about. We found a great pinboard by contributor Susan Engle where you can see lots of different “flavors” of this trendy style. The “Bohemian” theme is, by its very nature, highly eclectic. It can draw on designs and materials from all over the globe while still maintaining its earthy, authentic feel. So, while the individual jewelry items and accessories you select are important, how you achieve your overall look by layering the right pieces is even more critical. As you scroll through the gorgeous pins on Susan’s board, you’ll notice a few common denominators:
Long, Long, Long Necklaces
If your necklace is long enough to get tangled in the handlebars of your bicycle, it’s totally Boho! Your longest necklace serves as a frame for all the shorter ones you layer on top. Beaded, pendant, and chain necklaces are all great choices that will swing and sway as you walk.
Stacked Bangles and Cuffs
If you are a free spirit, chances are you gesticulate with your hands unselfconsciously as you speak (or dance). Adding lots of bracelets gives your movements even more emphasis. Get kinetic with your bangles to create a soundtrack for your life.
Leather and Feathers
Cold, hard metal and shiny, brittle beads need to be counterbalanced with more organic materials. Leather indicates that you are no thin-skinned socialite while colorful plumage shows that you aren’t afraid to stand out from the rest of the flock. Seashells also make an appearance in Boho beach jewelry to add the element of water.
Chunky Bouquet of Rings
Rings bring your fingers alive, so why stop with just one? If you wear a ring on every finger, no one will be able to tell if you’re married or engaged. This adds to your air of mystery and lets you flirt just a little! Semi-precious stones each have their own meaning, so you can carry a whole story in your hands.
