HFW Outfit Ideas: Bright Boho and Braided

15 Aug

If you’re searching for the perfect trendy and summery laid-back style, look no further. Inspired by the Hope For Women multicolored woven bracelet, this colorful bohemian look incorporates woven and braided details not only in bracelet and featured hairstyle (click here for a tutorial on the up-do!)  but also in the neutral woven sandals.
<p>
Since the bracelet features three different and distinct colors (turquoise, purple and a rich dark brown), rather than matching these hues exactly this look embraced the idea of multicolored with a vibrant sundress that included every shade seen in a rainbow. This paired with a solid clementine shrug made the style a bright and casual one without the fear of a being too matchy-matchy. However, to add a sense of cohesiveness, the look added Hope For Women’s handmade acai seed necklaces in the same color as the bracelet along with a brown and turquoise slouchy backpack to compliment its tones. To add a spritz of summery scent to look, these fair trade fragrances from the body shop will make the outfit and  it also coincides with Hope For Women’s values of making socially responsible purchases.
