Washington DC-based Alicia Tenise Chew is a fashion, lifestyle and travel blogger who documents her outfits on her website, and on Instagram. She is a confident dresser with a relaxed and very polished boho-lite style. Alicia is a dress gal at heart who loves hats and colour, and wears patterns with pizzazz.
This boho white midi dress has relaxed Summer vibes written all over it. The tiered A-line silhouette and loose fit are breezy for hot days. The gathered bodice and tiers create visual interest while the elbow-length puffed sleeves bring volume and drama. Alicia adds subtle pattern to the look with her casual espadrille wedge sandals in a cheetah print. Her oversized sunnies with tortoiseshell rim give the effect of a second animal print pattern. Our blogger’s wavy locks fit the beachy Summer feel perfectly.
Alicia loves a good conversational print, and this colourful safari one would make me smile if I saw her walking down the street. It graces an above-the-knee A-line popover dress with empire waist that creates structure. Her dainty strappy sandals have pyramid stud accents in silver metallic that add dressy bling to the look. Our blogger mixes metals with oversized gold-toned hoop earrings and an on-trend initial necklace. A mini straw handbag and red lipstick complete the look.
Sporting a dress unbuttoned as a topper is a clever way to get more wear out of your clothes. Here, Alicia is wearing a short-sleeved maxi dress as a duster layered over a fun graphic tee and cropped kick flare jeans. Tucking the tee lengthens the leg line from the hips up. The graphic print has some yellow in it which is a great match with the orange-yellow leopard print topper. White leather sneakers add crispness, and match the white tee, while Alicia’s small black bag echoes the leopard spots. Bright lippy and our blogger’s trademark radiant smile are the fab finishing touches.
Alicia is a vision in this bright multi-hued Summer maxi frock. The fitted smocked bodice provides structure, while the tiered A-line skirt adds breezy maximal flair. Our blogger’s studded flat sandals peeking out from under the colour-blocked dress bring subtle shine to the look. Her oversized tortoiseshell sunglasses and sleek long locks add lots of visual and textural interest. A small straw bag with top handle is the perfect accompaniment to this vivacious Summer outfit.
This is a fab example of Angie’s Dresses with Tall Boots outfit formula. Alicia is sporting a fit-and-flare mini dress in gorgeous shades of pink and red. The fitted waist creates structure, while the billowing sleeves add playful drama. Tall tan boots add buckletloads of ’70s glam to this early Fall boho look. The shorter hemline is great for Team Legs and showcases the boots, making them as much of a focal point as the dress. Alicia finishes off the look with raspberry lipstick and a Panama hat in stone that bookends her suede boots.
The clever design of this sweater dress with its horizontal ribbing up top and vertical ribbing for the bottom part makes it look like a two-piece dress. This creates vertical integrity by drawing the eye up and down. The knit fabric casualizes the look and gives it a boho feel while the gorgeously eye-catching bright yellow makes it a veritable showstopper. The taupe suede pointy-toe booties with sturdy block heel, and Alicia’s wavy ombré locks continue that boho vibe. A cheerful floral face mask perfectly matches the outfit.
