How To Dress Bohemian
Bohemian fashion, or boho chic, has taken the world by storm, and everyone is wondering how to dress bohemian. Even celebrities have taken up on the hit craze. It is ironic that women of the 21st century strive to dress bohemian, when true bohemian women are sexy and alluring precisely because they strive not to be like everyone else. That is the key to dressing bohemian. It is a uniqueness in the way of dressing that leans heavily on clothes that seem to float around the body in a freeing way.
- Australian boots
- Embroidered tunics
- Chunky jewelry
- Large belts
- Floor-length dresses
- Cropped jackets
- Floaty skirts
- Research other cultures. Bohemian dress has taken the romance of gypsy attire and meshed it with Native American influences, Indian inspired details and hippie designs. Pay attention to other free-thinking cultures to add unique pieces to your look.
- Obtain the correct materials. Bohemian dressing people tend to wear earthy materials and animal-made pieces. For example, sheepskin and fur-lined jackets are quite popular during the winter.
- Pay attention to boho celebrities, but don’t copy their style. Celebrities who have taken to boho chic (Sienna Miller, the Olsen twins, Kate Hudson, Johnny Depp) are great people to watch for inspiration, but don’t copy their look or it will defeat the purpose of bohemian dress, which is to be unique and free.
- Think "comfortable and free" when getting dressed. Bohemian style came alive in America during the liberating '60s because it was a freeing way to dress. When picking out your outfit, make sure it’s comfy and floats around you like a second skin.
- Layer your bohemian fashion pieces. Having lots of layers of clothing is a fashion staple of boho chic. Skirts over leggings, bangles all the way up the arm, and T-shirts with sweaters and jackets are common ways of layering.
- Remember that baggy is better than fitted. Bohemian wear is frequently baggy more than fitted, especially with comfort being key in boho style.
