From long dresses, gladiator sandals and hippie purses to hair bands and chunky jewelry, bohemian flair exudes a sensual, exotic, and even worldly vibe that is as fashion-forward as is it comfortable.
We’ve compiled below the must haves of a boho-chic look.
To be a boho-extraordinaire you’ll need a pair of ankle boots in a neutral tone like brown, black or beige to pair with mini skirts, tucked into skinny jeans, or worn under one of your long, flowing dresses. Be sure to choose a pair with a low to medium heel height so you can spend all day picking flowers, and all night dancing under the stars.
Printed maxi dress
Another key item to top off the gypsy look is a patterned maxi dress. Don’t accessorize too much when you are wearing this piece as the dress itself is a full statement. Pair it with some gladiator sandals, a chunky necklace or bracelet, and perhaps a hat. Toss a denim vest or jacket on for cooler days.
A chic purse
Fringe galore. When it comes to boho-style purses, bags must maintain either fringe or bold patterns and hang from a shoulder. Though bohemian purses generally call for oversize, single-shoulder bags, a smaller leather purse would also work as well as a vintage clutch.
A floppy brim hat
A floppy brim hat is a staple for the bohemian queen. Pair it with a long, flowing maxi dress or flowy top with cutoff shorts, and big sunglasses and you’ve got yourself the perfect summer outfit.
A large, patterned scarf is the perfect accessory to keep warm on cool evenings, accentuate a simple outfit, or as a head wrap for ultimate gypsy flair. A key piece, the scarf can be worn with skinny jeans, a skirt, or long dress.
When it comes to accessorizing your bohemian outfit, the possibilities are endless. From oversized earrings to bracelets or statement necklaces, you have a wide selection of boho jewelry to choose from. Opt for earthy colors and for accessories made from natural elements like wood, turquoise or coral.
Complete your gypsy look with a boho-chic hairstyle consisting of long, flowy waves or curles, reminiscent of wind-blown beach hair. Top it off with a flower crown, and you’re good to go!
