Start with your fabric choices and color palette.
Traditionally, the urban fashion is known for dark and neutral shades of black and navy while the color palette of the bohemian fashion revolves around the earthy shades of rust, red-orange, brown, and mustard. Like Yulia, you may think of mixing your color palette to create a distinctive mix of two fashion styles. Wearing navy jeans with an earth-tone jacket or going for a monochromatic black outfit will be great. Remember, urban look is known for leather motorcycle jackets, skinny trousers, and edgy boots while a bohemian look is known for button-front skirts, suede jackets, and fringed skirts that you may consider wearing.
Incorporate bohemian prints with your urban outfits.
Urban outfits are generally plain and dark, without any embellishments, prints, and patterns, so one way of adding some interest to your style is to mix your bohemian pattern with them. This way, you’ll refresh your otherwise boring and plain urban outfits like a crop top worn with denim shorts by topping it with a floral-print kimono like Yulia did. A plain burgundy dress scream urban while a printed kimono screams bohemian. Like Yulia, mix your styles by wearing the two distinctive pieces and dress it up with coordinating accessories. A pair of gladiators will make your outfit look more carefree while a pair of boots adds some tough-girl vibe to it.
Wear the distinctive details of bohemian fashion.
Since urban fashion is known for simple and plain structures without any fuss, add some interest to it by incorporating fringes, lace-ups, tassels and such which are the trademarks of the bohemian fashion. Like Yulia, think of making your bohemian burgundy jumpsuit look a bit urban by wearing it with a pair of sneakers over suede boots or gladiators. Sneakers are the preferred shoes of the urban women, especially New Yorkers, so going for a pair will instantly refresh your style. Looking for a powerful statement? Like Yulia, opt for a fringed jacket in leather fabric to create a mixed style in a fashion-forward way.
Dress up and dress down your looks with bohemian or urban accessories.
While urban outfits are known for cut-out boots, combat boots, and peep-toe boots, bohemian looks are known for cowboy hat, gladiator sandals, and fringed bag that can be a great statement to look bold on your street style. Like Yulia, all you need is the creativity to mix and match your pieces rooted from different fashion style to come up with a fresh look that can make you stand out from the crowd.
