Finally, a legitimate excuse to dress like a hippie. The term “Bohemian” is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives. Boho-Chic style being trendy for 2015 is all anyone can talk about, ourselves included. Now that the biggest trend of the season has been established, let’s talk about how to wear it. Here are 12 ways to dress Boho-Chic!
1. Midi Skirts
Forget the mini and the maxi, midi style skirts are the only length worth wearing right now. Ending anywhere from just below the knee to a few inches above the ankle, the midi skirt—or tea skirt, as it’s sometimes called—is this season’s easiest-to-style piece.
The boho-embraced fringe style will have you looking chic rather than looking like you just got back from Coachella. Though fringe might seem like a trickier trend to pull off, it works really well on coats, jackets and skirts, as well as on accessories like handbags and shoes. Needless to say, you can wear it just about anywhere.
It was only a matter of time until suede made a much-deserved comeback from its seventies heyday. Nothing says boho better than refreshing uses of suede; earth-tone palettes with stitches and intricate needlework will get the job done!
4. Boyfriend Jeans
Once upon a time in a fashionable kingdom long, long ago, “The Bootcut” jean reigned supreme, but then a wickedly slimming cut named “The Skinny” knocked “The Bootcut” off its denim-clad throne. However, it seems skinny jeans may have a new adversary in the form of the easy-to-wear Boyfriend Jean – a staple in any free spirit’s wardrobe!
5. Flared Jeans
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the ’70s are back… in case you didn’t get the multiple memos. Not to be confused with boot-cut or wide-legged denim, flares become wider from the knee down. Also known as bell bottoms, these pants will make your legs look miles long (especially when worn with heels) and instantly add a boho-chic style to any outfit. Finally, bell bottoms are back and better than ever!
6. Floppy Hats
No Bohemian outfit is complete without a floppy hat. Floppy hats are the best headwear options you can go for, for that beautiful, feminine Bohemian look. Versatile enough to be worn on the street and to the beach, floppy hats great for styling summer outfits!
7. Patterns, Patterns, Patterns!
Spring/summer styles are bursting with geometric tribal prints with a rich Sub-Saharan vivacity! The bold, graphic prints and simple shapes are a gutsier take on the other ethnic trends of the season and portray a Bohemian global nomadic style.
Much like the hipster style, the Bohemian clothing trend has the same idea when it comes to sunglasses. They like their frames slightly round and dark. They go well with any type of look you are trying to create and they’re also just very fun to have around on any occasion!
9. Make Waves
A popular favorite hairstyle is to keep your hair naturally wavy or add sea-salt water spray for that modern day, socially accepted ‘just-got-out-bed’ but I honestly did shower look.

The Bohemian style calls for messy braids, so those going full Boho-flare dare to go back to the basics and re-create the bohemian princess look.
11. Chunky and Earthy Jewelry

Boho style is not complete without carefully curated stylish jewelry. You can expect all Bohemian type jewelry to have one thing in common; they are either wonderfully big or earthy! Jewelry accents are essential to pulling a Boho outfit seamlessly together.
12. Eye Makeup

This fashion trend commonly emphasizes black makeup as well as other earth tones such as browns and nudes and has become increasingly popular to create a smokey eye, and follow it up with some extensive black mascara. This leaves your eyes looking mysterious, daring, and downright hot!
