Umswenko: Celebrating Spring Boho-Chic

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”- Coco Chanel 

Boho-Chic is back for Spring 2015. The style is inspired by Bohemianism and the Hippie movement that took charge in late 60’s and early 70’s. It brings out the flavour of the 60’s and 70’s unconventional ‘artiste’ lifestyle.

The style is infused with bell sleeves, embroidered detailing, fringe, all shades of brown, tunics and wooden jewellery.

She has complemented her outfit with a trendy classic washed out denim jacket and a brown fringe statement bag. Qoboshiyana says spring is her favourite season, “I love colour and I try to infuse that with my love for vintage style”. She completed her outfit with big curls and cat-eye glasses to bring out the chic.
