Layering with vests, cardigans and jewellery

The bohemian look will not be complete without the layers that make it so chic. Whether it’s a flowing poncho over a maxi dress or a hip vest over a simple shirt, the possibilities are endless. Other layering options include putting on chunky, beady jewellery which are perfect for expressing your free spirited nature.

Laid-back, flowing clothes and loose silhouettes

Bohemian style is all about ease of wearing and a loose fit to reflect one’s openness. Laid-back looks with flowing clothes are certainly a part of this fashion look, as are silhouettes that are not too girly and instead are loose and elegantly feminine. Maxi dresses, midi skirts, flared pants, tunic tops and many other such items are just some of the style must-haves.

Fringes and lace

Fringes and lace details have long been a part of the bohemian fashion scene. With their ageless appeal and whimsical touch, any garment with fringe or lace can look sophisticated on any given day. Pair up a simple lace blouse with light and airy printed shorts and you’ll have a great outfit for any outing.

Head scarves and other head wraps

Chic head wraps, such as flower crowns, scarves and bands, trace back to the 60s and 70s eras of fashion, which have seen resurgence in popularity thanks to the music festivals of today. They bring a classic touch to any outfit and are perfect for completing the bohemian look. Think wavy tresses kept in line with a stylish head scarf, and bad hair days can be kept away.

Big sunglasses and floppy hats

Oversized sunglasses are an essential item that can be worn anytime, especially for those sunny days. Floppy hats are also perfect for keeping out the sun, perfect for using at the beach. These two accessories look perfect when complemented by a maxi dress or just a simple poncho top with shorts. 

Prints everywhere

For women looking to emulate a bohemian look, the best way to start is through clothes with eye-catching patterns. This could include geometric designs, abstract shapes, floral accents and others. Bohemian fashion embraces colorful patterns and designs, so mixing and matching prints will be quite exciting.
