Classical Bohemian Princess

Yesterday, we shared an example of a client of mine who identifies as a Fashion-Forward Corporate Tomboy, and today we're sliding to he other side of the style spectrum with a Classical Bohemian Princess. 

This client feels very inspired by Grecco-Roman stying, and she loves learning about History, Art, Architecture, and Design. She's intellectually curious and enjoys engaging in theoretical discussions. She also keeps an open mind, enjoys being adventurous about foods and experiences, and enjoys a good laugh - all while maintaining a certain standard and taste level for her quality of life. 


In order to translate this complex personality into a visual statement, we thought about classical element that worked well with this client's body shape, coloring, and lifestyle. Togas weren't an option for several reasons, but we incorporated lots of soft, feminine fabrics and statement jewelry. Key elements include: 

  • Cuff bracelets
  • Jersey
  • Silks
  • Her Hairstyle
  • Sandals
  • Pastels


The bohemian infuence is more familiar to most Americans, but it's sometimes difficult to differentiate the bohemian flavor of Kate Moss, Anthropologie, and a more general '70s influence. We carefully selected a few key items that specifically spoke to my client's particular brand of adventurism. We ended up focusing on breezy elements that jived well with her Classical side as well as a set of feminine textiles.  For example: 

  • Velvet
  • Paisley
  • Cotton Gauze
  • Maxi Dresses & Skirts
  • Denim
  • Peasant Blouses
  • Statement Jackets


For this client, the term Princess encapsulates both her love of beautiful things and her decidedly feminine personality. We incorporated lots of her favorite color (pink), florals, and ladylike dresses. A few key items are:  

  • Hot Pink As a Signature Color
  • A-line Skirts
  • Soft Florals
  • Shiny Jewelry
  • Quality Handbags
  • High Heeled Pumps, Boots, and Sandals

I hope that this look behind the scenes helps you start to make connections between your own values and different clothing/accessory options.

Next week, we'll move on to the next step and discuss how go about transitioning from your current state of dress to your ideal image! Happy Weekend!
