The first step to looking the part is making sure you know all the essentials that make up this trend.

1

Pile on the layers


Sometimes referred to as homeless-chic, Mary-Kate Olsen's eccentric style has landed her the face of boho fashion. What we really heart about this pint-sized style icon is her uncanny ability to layer contrasting fabrics and patterns so seamlessly (and with such panache).

To achieve the gypsy boho look a la Olsen twin, we recommend trying this plush patchwork raccoon, rabbit and fox fur vest from the girls' very own fashion label, Elizabeth and James. Simply layer over a silky animal print top as styled in the picture above and your boho luxe booty is ready to go.

Rock a maxi skirt

 

A long floaty maxi skirt is a must-have for any boho chic wardrobe. Printed, tiered and with sweet scalloped edges, the summer layers skirt is exactly what we envisioned when we thought "boho." Style it with a black leather jacket, combat boots and a vintage graphic tee for a modern, edgy take on traditional bohemian style. For a more romantic, girly vibe, simply slip into this pieced together maxi skirt featuring an array of floral ditsy prints, also from Free People, $148.

Accessorize obsessively

In case you haven't noticed, the boho babe lives, eats and breathes accessorizing. The key to keeping on trend with her signature layered look is to mix a multitude of contrasting styles together for an all over eclectic vibe. The easiest way to do this is by starting with jewelry. Check out this multi floral stack ring set for a boho-worthy bargain that has already been styled for you. Feeling a little thrifty? We're also digging this vintage-inspired orange bangle bracelet from Endless, $69.
