The revival of Boho Chic

This year, we’re seeking a renewed appreciation for all things bohemian.

From flowy maxi dresses to fringe-adorned accessories and eclectic jewellery, the bohemian aesthetic is all about expressing individuality and embracing a carefree lifestyle.

Designers are approaching the boho aesthetic with fresh interpretations and modern twists, making it more accessible and versatile than ever before.

What is boho chic?

Bohemian style draws inspiration from the counterculture movements of the 1960s and ‘70s, characterised by an eclectic mix of vintage and handmade elements.

So, how does this translate to the world of eyewear? Think round frames, floral prints, earthy tones and above all, versatility.

Boho round frames

These Kylie Minogue DID IT AGAIN sunglasses blend sophistication with bohemian charm, making them a must-have accessory for every free spirit.

What truly captures the boho aesthetic and sets these sunglasses apart, is the exquisite details woven into their design. From the subtle bevelled corners to the enchanting word 'magic' delicately engraved on the bridge; each element embodies a whimsical nature.

What’s more, the gorgeous rose gold frame colour is suited to any skin tone, making these a universally flattering choice.

Opt for these Specsavers Strickland rounded sunnies if you’re after a vintage feel.

The rims of these sunglasses feature a tortoiseshell foil edge that gives off vintage charm and complements the overall aesthetic. This detail is echoed on the temple tips, creating a polished look from front to back

Try teaming them with a lightweight linen shirt in an earthy tone, or a printed button-down shirt for a relaxed yet put-together vibe. Layering is key to achieving the boho aesthetic, so consider adding a denim or suede jacket for cooler evenings.

Earthy toned sunglasses

Earthy tones are at the core of boho style, perfectly giving off the natural and free-spirited vibe of this enduring trend.

The Specsavers Kimmeridge sunglasses, with their effortlessly chic design, are a quintessential accessory for anyone looking to dive into this aesthetic.

When paired with some classic distressed denim, these sunglasses help you channel a boho vibe that's not only timeless but also incredibly versatile.

Whether you’re heading to a casual brunch, a music festival, or even a more formal outdoor event, their earthy, understated tones adapt seamlessly to different settings.

Floral frames

If there’s one way to truly scream boho, it’s by donning floral patterns.

Floral frames take the boho style to a whole new level, especially when they come as intricately designed as the Liberty London LL 05 glasses in a plum-pink crystal acetate.

The interior of the sides of these glasses is adorned with the iconic 'Tree of Life tile' floral Liberty print, featuring a pink, black and green colourway.

Take these specs along to your next coffee date or leisurely stroll through the park to subtly express your bohemian style.

Find your flower match and make a stylish statement while staying true to the laid-back, artistic element of boho chic.

Oversized wire-rim glasses

These Specsavers Ficus wire-rimmed square glasses in shiny metal offer a sleek and sophisticated take on eyewear that's perfect for embracing a contemporary boho-chic look.

With their minimalist design and clean lines, take these trendy specs to your next art gallery date to add a subtle yet distinctive flair to your outfit.

Looking for a bit of a spin on the classic wire-rimmed look?

Opt for these bow-shaped Viktor & Rolf Vision VR 18 glasses. The bow shape of these glasses is not only eye-catching but also incredibly flattering, enhancing facial features with its soft curves and femininity.

It's a design choice that perfectly aligns with the boho aesthetic, as it echoes the natural and flowing lines often found in bohemian-inspired fashion.

Retro boho sunglasses

Turn back time with these Specsavers Belhaven sunglasses.

The stand-out crystal-lilac purple acetate boasts a vintage-inspired aesthetic that's both playful and evocative of iconic vintage sunglasses from the ‘60s and ‘70s. The chunky oval lenses, reminiscent of big, beautiful bubbles, add a whimsical touch to your look.

Capture the boho-chic vibe of spring and summer 2024 with these Specsavers Wineglass sun frames.

The gorgeous amber colour radiates warmth and richness, while the oversized silhouette of the big bubble frames evokes a quirky charm that’s inherently bohemian.

Pair with a crochet crop top and fringed suede cowboy boots for a boho-western vibe. Don’t forget to accessorise with layered necklaces, beaded bracelets and a straw hat to really nail the look.
