Sometimes, even women like me – who don’t care about fashion at all – all we need is to find a way to find out our personal outfit style. Besides, what we all have to admit is that the style we choose to get dress up is a part of our personality.
Bohemian Style is style that doesn’t belong to any fashion label and it has its own way to stands out because it doesn’t follow any rules. It’s the result of a portion of people who have decided to follow their own, alternative lifestyle. These people are usually artists, travelers and wanderers and other “free spirits”. The philosophy of Bohemian Style stems from hippies and gypsies and of course, as a first impression, reminds them closely. In short, therefore, this style is as different as the people themselves.
You may have the majority of the following: printed maxi dress, gladiator sandals, a floppy hat, a fringe cross-body bag, a beaded vest, flared jeans, a coin-embellished belt, denim cut-offs, feather earrings and every style of boot imaginable. And, probably, your mother thinks you dress like a “hippie”, your boyfriend thinks every dress you have “looks like a sack” and your best friends all dress just like you do as a grown-up love child. If so, then you’re close enough to this style. But, what exactly determines Bohemian or “Boho” Style?
Although there are no specific rules of this style, some common features have been identified, which are basic details that give bohemian touches to our appearance. So, here are some Bohemian Dressing Tips:
1. Long Skirts
To nail the boho chic look, long skirts are a must. This piece of gypsy-inspired clothing works perfectly on multiple levels: not only does it look sweet and artsy, but it is also incredibly comfortable.
When it comes to adopting this style, all sorts of accessories are allowed (and, frankly, quite necessary). You can choose from statement pieces, to ones with semi-precious stones or wooden finishes. Celebrate beautiful weather with a pair of classic Wayfarer sunglasses (or get matching pairs, one for the sun and normal glasses for other occasions).
3. Intricate Patterns & Prints
In the crazy and beautiful mix up, we call the boho chic style, complex prints and patterns are like the frosting on a cupcake. You can get as creative as you want when it comes to choosing print details for your boho outfit. If you are at a loss of inspiration, look into Aztec or Tribal, paisley, or doily patterns for some neat ideas.
4. Fringe Tops and Lace
Bring on the fringes! For hippie gals, fringes are encouraged not only for tops, but also for boots, bags, vests, and basically any other piece of clothing you could imagine. You can either go out and buy fringe tops from almost any store (they are quite in fashion lately), or you can start your own DIY project and cut up a top you have.
If you are wondering what the best variety of footwear for boho girls is, search no further. The answer is boots! You are free to try out all types of different boots, both short and long. You will see that they come in handy during festivals and open air concerts, aside from looking awesome.
