What Is Bohemian Fashion?

Bohemian style refers to an artistic lifestyle that’s liberal and challenges tradition. When it comes to fashion, it’s associated with flowy pieces of clothing that have earthy, brown tones. It’s a very casual style and rejects not only tradition but also materialism. Because of this, you’ll find that a lot of Boho chic outfit ideas incorporate the use of secondhand and thrift shop items.

Now that you have a starting point for what Bohemian style is, we can get into all the pieces you can purchase to transform your wardrobe and transition into the Bohemian lifestyle!

Bohemian fashion is all about flowy pieces, so maxi dresses are perfect. When you look in the dictionary for the word “flowy,” you’ll find a picture of a maxi dress. This garment will cover you from shoulder to toe, making you feel as if you’re floating on a cloud when you walk around.

If you’re on the lazier side for fashion, a printed maxi dress can save your skin. All you have to do is throw it on, pair it with some cute earrings or a chunky bracelet, and you’re good to go. If you have a beautiful bag, then you won’t even have to bother with the accessories! Your printed maxi dress will match it effortlessly.

Maxi Skirts

If you want more to work with, then consider a maxi skirt instead. Maxi skirt outfit ideas incorporate both a bottom and top piece while maxi dresses consist of just one. If you’ve just gotten an awesome graphic t-shirt and want to show it off, then you can pair it with a maxi skirt.

A crop top always goes well with anything flowy since it flatters the top part of your body while it accentuates your hips. Whether you wear a maxi skirt or harem pants, you’ll look smoking in the outfit, no matter what shape or size you are.

Plus, crop tops can double as festival wear when you want to just throw on a pair of jean shorts and escape the boho life for a little bit. Don’t worry, no one will judge you for that!

If you’re not a fan of crop tops, or the weather’s too cold to wear them, then a comfy alternative is a tunic top. These will cover your upper body and make you feel nice and snug whenever you’re wearing them. You get lots of versatility with tunic tops for Boho fashion since you can wear them by themselves or layer with something like a vest.

Embroidered tops are also something very bohemian, so make sure you have at least a few in your closet. These look great with dark-colored jeans so the attention is on your beautifully embroidered blouse.

On days where you’re not feeling particularly Boho chic, or you’re just feeling a bit lazy, you can throw on a tunic top and pair it with a cozy pair of leggings and call it a day.

When it comes to footwear, gladiator sandals are textbook Boho. When you find that you have a well put-together outfit and have no matching shoes, gladiator sandals will always come to the rescue. So you can forget about having to use those boring old flip-flops as your backup finishing touch for your amazing outfit.

What’s great about gladiator sandals is they come in a number of different styles. The straps can be chunky or thin, the heel can be flat or raised, and the sandals themselves can be ankle length or knee high. They also come in a variety of colors, so you can go wild with different pairs.

Ankle Boots

When the weather gets chillier and the rain starts coming down more, swap your gladiator sandals for ankle boots. Most ankle boots have simple styles, which means you can make one pair work with any outfit you put together. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even pick up a pair that has fringes.

For the fall-winter transition, you’ll want to switch from ankle boots to cowboy boots. You might be thinking: how are cowboy boots bohemian? With their leather material and their down-to-earth origins, we’d say cowboy boots are pretty Boho. Plus, you’d be surprised to see just how many people have Boho’d up their own pairs to give it more of an artsy feel.

Break free from plain, solid colors or chunks of color and embrace your more free-spirited and artsy side by exploring geometric prints. These can add a bit of depth and dimension to whatever you’re wearing, which will give you a truly unique appearance.

Many fashion designers have geometric print dresses in their lines, but if you’re not into buying from major brand names, you can still find gorgeous geometric prints at thrift stores or other independent clothing stores.

Chunky bracelets will really show off your Boho style, especially if you get them in earthy tones. Bohemian fashion is about rejecting materialism, so anything flashy is a no-no. Stick to unique pieces that have brown tones and are made from natural materials, such as wood or turquoise.

While many modern fashion brands have caught onto the Boho style of fashion, you’ll get better touches of authenticity if you source your jewelry from flea markets or incense stores. By buying secondhand, you’ll make your stand in antimaterialism.

Have you put together your Bohemian outfit and felt it looked amazing, but was missing something? Then you probably need to get yourself an oversized scarf. You might be afraid that since everything is so flowy already, an oversized scarf will make it seem like you’re swimming in an ocean of clothes.

But in reality, an oversized scarf is the pièce de résistance, as hard as it is to believe. Not only will it keep your neck nice and warm, but it’ll also give you a Boho aura. Plus, you can convert it into a cute halter top once the weather gets hotter.

Here’s where you can exercise your chic style. While Bohemian isn’t exactly synonymous with hippie, you still have the freedom to incorporate some nature into your Bohemian outfits.

Floral crowns have been super popular with the festival crowd lately, so if you’ve always eyed other girls’ flower crowns enviously, here’s your chance to try it out for yourself. There are some cute floral headwraps and hairbands that can show off the more girly side of you.

While they won’t be as ostentatious as festival flower crowns, that’s a good thing. The more modest headwraps and hairbands are great for pairing with everyday Boho outfits. Plus, it goes with the whole “not so flashy” theme.

Bonus: Bohemian Mandala Rug

If you want your home to feel a little more Bohemian chic, this is the perfect addition. With its warm brown tones and mesmerizing mandala, it’ll accent all the other artistic trinkets you have strewn across your room.

For the hippie in you, the mandala rug will help you center yourself and find inner peace whenever you walk into the room and see it.
