Brimming over with charm and vibrancy, bohemian fashion is synonymous with an unconventional lifestyle. Artists, actors, writers, musicians, reject mainstream political and social ideas have a vagabond tendency to hold non-traditional views of life and practice eclectic forms of art, seeking old world spiritual purposes.
Hippy travelers with eclectic appearances inspired from their worldly travels are influenced by different cultures and societies. The boho look is a throw back to the free-spirited lifestyle. Free flowing kaftan dresses in natural cotton, simple pull over styles that let the skin breathe are so much fun. The simple style of boho pants and the love for natural fabrics makes it easy to fall in love with embroidered tunics. Hand made with original creativity, colors and patterns the boho skirts and dresses made from recycled saris are an expression of bohemian love. The fresh untouched look and freedom of motion are the mainstay of bohemian style.
Thinking out of the box, staying away from trendy, the main theme about the boho is finding beauty in the unusual and unique. Contrast colors instead of trying to blend and match colors. Bright colors are a huge part of a bohemian outfit. Bright red tunics, orange and purple caftans, electric blue harem pants, the gamut of colors creates a collage of self expression.
Layering and playing on the texture is vital to boho chic outfits. A loose caftan worn over jeans and a turtle neck keeps you warm and cozy. Stay with the freedom of bohemian style, using your creativity to layer boho dresses over skinny jeans, tunics and harem pants and leather jackets.
Playing with exotic and extravagant patterns and prints is a huge part of the boho style. Tribal designs, retro prints, tie dye and geometric patterns are seen in the lavish swinging tiered maxi skirts. Paisley and floral designs are essential to any bohemian wardrobe, as seen in the fantastic embroidered kaftans. Wear them in the fall or winter with loose palazzo pants. Wear pattern over pattern, the sheer embroidered white tunic worn over a turtle neck sweater with the thick striped cotton boho pants and boots gives an edgy boho vibe.
The free spirited bohemian look is structured on loose-fitting and oversized pieces like the flowy kaftan with kimono sleeves. Loose maxi dresses in stonewashed fabrics, embellished caftan tunics and boho accessories like semi precious mala beads and necklaces complete the outfit. Embroidered shawls with bright colors are great to accent a boho look. Be creative and inspired to take on decorating your room with the boho vibe as well.
