Bohemian is a dress style that originated during the 1960’s and 70’s. Characterised by free flowing fabrics, boho style is meant to reflect on yourself and nature, so many natural fabrics like cotton are used. This however doesn’t mean bland patterns and linen dresses, bohemian style also is nowadays characterised by loose and flowy clothing with nature references like flowers as patterns. It’s effortlessly stylish.
- Colours Are A Must
Bohemian style dressing is all about colours. Whether it’s a punchy shade of green or a light pastel pink, experimentation is key. The bohemian style is all about being effortlessly cool, so even if certain pieces may not match, it’s your attitude that will make the outfit.
This being said, don’t feel obligated to come drenched in colour if you don’t. Neutrals are still an amazing choice for a boho chic look, with white and beiges being the most popular shades. Add dimension to your outfit by layering different shades of neutrals or selecting different shades of patterns.
