The Fabulous Boho Style

The Beautiful Classic Style

The Chic Retro Style

Spring and summer of 2021 continues to bring us both new and old trends when
it comes to fashion. Whether it’s winter or summer, or mainstream or alternative, there
are three statement trends that are here to stay: boho, classic, and retro. Boho, or
bohemian fashion is characterized by comfy, loose fitting clothing decorated with
intricate designs. The classic style is known for its minimalism and simplicity, as well as
how versatile it is– simple and solid colored clothing can be worn on any occasion.
Lastly, the retro style takes us back to the 70s and 80s when unconventional clothing
and colorful patterns made the perfect chic outfit. Sweet Dates Canada brings you three
articles closely examining the history and characteristics of these everlasting styles.

The Fabulous Bohemien Style

The Fabulous Boho Style
Boho or Bohemian fashion is back in
2021 and as in-style as it was at its nascent in
the 60s. Boho fashion takes elements from
laid-back and hippie clothing. Delicate and
complex designs such as florals, swirls, and
mandalas characterize this style over looser
fitting clothing items.
Boho clothing includes modest,
comfortable, and loose-fitting items such as airy
dresses, off the shoulder tops, and long flowy
skirts. Long, flowy sleeves and thin, rippling
cardigans mark this style as well.


Colors are blue, brown, orange, and cream. Boho clothing is
known for being both dramatically colorful and effortlessly
relaxed. This style can also be paired with a variety of
bohemian accessories. Long chained necklaces, neutral
colored ankle boots, circular purses, and bandannas and
scarves are only a few of many options to pair with your
clothing; even regular outfits can be spiced up with boho
accents using boots with tassels or leather jewelry or a brown
leather belt tied around a dress. Feathers and fringes are other
boho accents to pair with your favorite outfits, or even a wide
brimmed hat with a pair of sunglasses.
Since it became widespread with the hippie movement
in the 60s, boho fashion has always utilized leather, denim,

Silk, chiffon, and cotton all work together to create this placid style.

showcasing it off as her signature ‘boho-chic’ street style. This versatile trend can be
worn to make both a supermodel-like statement, or as a casual everyday look. After all,
boho screams comfort, class, and taste.

suggest, is a timeless style that can be worn on
any occasion. Even as new unconventional
styles gain popularity, classic clothing
continues to dominate the fashion world. This
style is rooted in older European designs and

neutral colored items, free of unconventional
designs or too many patterns. Classic styled.clothing aren’t particularly tight or loose;

white belt is an example of a formal application of the classic style.

Coco Chanel takes pride in her own classic style
and offers advice to women exploring the style for
themselves: “Before you leave the house, look in the
mirror and take one thing off.” According to Chanel,
minimalism is key to the perfect classic style. Plain gold
or silver pendants, black ankle boots, an everyday jacket,
and a classic set of diamond studs complete a classic look
that doesn’t seem to be demanding attention, yet steals
the show.
Colors like browns, blacks, creams, whites, and
greys all dominate the classic woman’s closet. These
neutral tones can be paired with makeup like a nude
lipstick and neutral eyeshadow, or to make your makeup stand out, red lipstick and dark grey eyeshadow pairs beautifully with the classic trend.

Business clothing also contains elements of classic clothing.  A pair of your favorite black heels, a solid brown cardigan, and an auburnbelt can all spice up your business casual look. A cream blazer and a statement leather purse with a pair of jeans can add even more classic formality to your everyday wear.
