Here are some few things you may need to know about “Bohemian Style”. Before we talk so far about Boho or Bohemian, maybe we need to explain to you what’s Bohemian/ Boho? “Bohemian” is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives.


And in fashion way they called “boho-chic” in the early years of the 21st century, the Sunday Times thought it ironic that “fashionable girls wore ruffly floral skirts in the hope of looking bohemian, nomadic, spirited and non-bourgeois”, whereas “gypsy girls themselves … are sexy and delightful precisely because they do not give a hoot for fashion”.


Freedom of motion is a major element of the bohemian style. Rather than tight pieces, bohemian dressers opt for baggy, comfortable clothing made from natural fibers. This may be by way of loose peasant blouses; wide boat-neck shirts; maxi dresses; caftans; or boho skirts, which are also known as hippie or Gypsy skirts. Pieces are usually flared and available in a variety of colors and patterns, although ethic patterns are most common. Romantic touches, like flower patterns and lace, are often included too.



Boho chic hair is often worn long and loose. A loose, messy braid might hold the hair behind the head, while a small, tight braid at the hairline — called a boho braid — could be used to highlight the face. Headbands and hairbands are also common, as are scarves and different types of hats. A slouchy hat with a wide brim or a crocheted cloche hat, like that worn by the woman in the photo to the right, might be worn with nearly any bohemian outfit. For men, a patterned fedora, flat cap, or knit cap would fit with this style.


Although not always as readily identifiable as women’s clothing, bohemian fashion for men includes many of the same influences. Layering is important, and an outfit may include a pair of loose slacks or distressed jeans topped with a T-shirt, button down, or sweater — or some combination of these — and a scarf and vest. Hats and jewelry, including bracelets and rings, complete the look.
