DIY Boho Skirts For Your Throwback Look
Whether you call it boho, festival, hippie, gypsy, or peasant, boho style as we know it takes its influences from the laid back hippie looks of the ’60s, when maxis were de rigueur for the “flower child”. The look is said to have been revived most recently by Sienna Miller, who wore it in the movie Alfie in 2005 then continued to wear it and papparazzi continued to photograph her wearing it and women everywhere continued to want to get it, too. So says the Wiki machine. But we know it has always been and will always be the laid back look of a beautiful free spirit — and an easy DIY.
Even if you are a beginner seamstress, we’ve got you covered with 12 Stylish Maxi Skirts You Can Make, including wrap skirts, half-circle skirts, A-lines, yoga waists, mermaids, tie-dyes and even an IKEA hack skirt! Need a friend to show you how? Brit + Co has a Sewing 101 E-Class available, instructed by our very own Roxy Taghavian. By the time you’ve completed this 60-minute class, you’ll have sewn your very own boho skirt.
If you didn’t inherit the gene for sewing, you can jumpstart your boho skirt with this DIY combining three store-bought skirts into a maxi dress. Or check out the skirts in this roundup of 66 no-sew DIY projects.
Once you’ve got your boho skirt, accessorize it with boho jewelry and boho bags. You can dress your boho skirt up or down, and even wear it to work. Here are 10 looks that pack plenty of boho vibe, but won’t draw sideways glances from the boss.
