Boho-Chic Wardrobe Essentials

77 total views

Let’s chat today about a few wardrobe essentials for the woman who isn’t a classic dresser.  Last week I shared wardrobe essentials that are always in style and a reader asked me to share what the equivalents would be for her because she enjoys a colorful, flowy bohemian look. I love to add touches of it to my classic style and many women do too, so here are a few boho-chic wardrobe essentials.

There are no strict rules for how to create the boho style, and that’s the whole point. Bohemian or boho-chic style is an unconventional, artistic, and creative way to dress.

Dresses and long skirts in flowing fabrics are a mainstay of many boho-chic wardrobes. Look for natural fibers in solids or prints. Interesting designs like uneven hemlines, fringe, ruffles, and prints bump the fun quotient up and look distinctive.

Layering

Whether you’re stacking on bracelets or layering a flowy vest over palazzo pants, loose layers are an important part of the bohemian style. Boho-chic is anything but body-conscious so it often conceals the line of your silhouette. Oversized garments are common and comfort is key.

Loose and airy kimonos are a great way for any woman can add a bohemian look to their wardrobe. They’re available at all price points so there’s no need to break the bank. These are often printed in intricate detail and colorful patterns and are one of the most easily recognizable boho-chic essentials.

Flowy fabrics

Often in neutral colors and natural fabrics, the bohemian look is long, loose, and flowing. There’s nothing constricting or overly fitted here as the boho gal loves to feel at ease in her clothing. Palazzo pants, long loose vests, tunic tops, and loose dresses worn over leggings or pants give a definite boho vibe.

Brightly colored, busy, and cheerful patterns are common but if your taste runs to soft, earth-toned neutrals, there’s plenty of those too. Ethnic prints like tribal, paisley, ikat, or kilim are a fabulous look and very popular. Embroidery can be intricate or simple, colorful or subtle, and one of the most popular boho-chic wardrobe essentials.
