The ‘Discover Your Own Path’ and purple meadow graphic print will go with just about anything, making any outfit cool without needing to try too hard.

How to Get Bohemian Chic Hair

jp-5307-jakandpeppar_thumbnailThe boho chic look for girls and tweens is really emphasized with the right hair style and accessories. The point of bohemian hair is to look natural. For girls with straight hair, try adding a soft curl at the end or braiding a few sections.

Wavy hair looks amazing, and most girls can achieve this look by washing their hair at night and braiding it. Take out the braids in the morning and gently run your fingers through them for adorably wavy hair.

Jak & Peppar have several headband styles too that look gorgeous when worn across the forehead. The Jak & Peppar Empress Headband – Vanilla is a fun style. If you want a braided headband, then try the Jak & Peppar Hannah Braided Headband – Slate Crochet . For more of a head wrap type style that adds a pop of color, the Jak & Peppar Gertrude Headwrap – Aqua Garden is your go-to.

The Pazitos Girls Natural Rhinestone Lazo Euro Boot is also a very natural and cute choice that would pair perfectly with all of Jak & Peppar’s boho styles for girls.

These are not your mother’s legwarmers

Legwarmers aren’t just for jazzercise anymore!  The past several seasons, we’ve seen a resurgence in the popularity of this fun accessory, with plenty of twists & takes on an old style.  There is a dizzying array of colors and styles to wear with just about anything.  With such a huge selection available, this inexpensive accessory can change a plain wardrobe into a chic fashion-forward collection by adding color and style.  These season, legwarmers are back at their peak!

Legwarmers are the perfect overlay for leggings or tights; they look great with jeans, and they also look fantastic on their own with skirts, dresses or shorts.  Put them inside boots or over the top, with flats, sneakers or high-tops.  Super hot this season is striped legwarmers of all styles, like these Pink & Black Dance Dreams from Huggalugs.  There are three basic styles of legwarmers.  First are smaller ones that come with tights to cover & cozy the ankles and add dimension to the tights, like these leg warmers from Eliane et Lena.  The second kind are a more traditional knit legwarmer, more like the dancer type from the ’80s.  These come in prints, stripes and solids and cover the bottom half of the leg or can be stretched up to cover the whole leg.  A good example of this style is Huggalugs, which come in stripes, metallics, prints and solids, gathered or flat.  These can be pulled up high, and with a skirt look just like leggings!  They also scrunch down in beautiful gathers to cover the lower part of the leg in cozy warmth.

The third kind are the layered type, which are rows of lace or fabric ruffles sewn over a lighter-weight knit legwarmer.  These aren’t as long as the ballerina type, and not as warm, but pack a stylish punch in bright colors and interesting textures.  There are even faux fur legwarmers, like these from Wheat!
