Mixing prints with clean silhouettes: A cute bohemian top is a wardrobe essential for summer but how will you update that humble top; by just adding a sleek summer blazer on top of it with tie-up heels or ‘booties’. You can stack up some statement raw stones rings or statement tassel chain earrings for extra bohemian drama. If you are the adventurous one then, feel free to play with prints, rather than going with a solid colour blazer go for a printed blazer that matches with your printed dress or separates. To balance the look opt for neutral solid footwear and bag. Go minimal on the jewellery and layer some pendant chains.
