Ew, David.

Schitt’s Creek‘s Alexis Rose (played by Annie Murphy) is a great, hilarious character, in addition to being a style queen. Her high-end, designer, boho-esque looks stand out both against her more edgy-chic family as well as her casual small-town neighbors.

Boho — when done without the all-too-rampant cultural appropriation that turns up sometimes — is one of those styles that I always covet but often feel like I can’t quite seem to pull off. I love the soft, casual vibe, but I have some trouble putting together the looks.

I’m turning to Alexis as a guide. Granted, she is, in her words “basically a sample size,” so the exact pieces will be different (and even if I could fit in them I’m sure I couldn’t afford them), but the vibe will be similar.

Short, Flowy Dresses

Four images of Alexis Rose in short, flowy dresses.
Alexis loves to show off some leg while still wearing light, floaty dresses.
