10 Ways to Welcome Boho Style Into Your Wardrobe
Are you wanting to unleash your inner bohemian goddess? Boho style has, for over 200 years, been known as an alternative to everyday fashion. However, it’s easy to incorporate a touch of bohemian style into your wardrobe and allow that inner earthy and artsy personality to shine.
The 1960s and 70s were the height of boho chic style and this has seen a huge revival in recent years. The good news: you don’t need to look like you’ve just jumped out of a 70s film set (unless you want to, of course!) to embrace boho clothing and designs.
To help you choose some fabulous boho pieces, Joe Browns bring you 10 ways to incorporate boho style into your wardrobe.
Have you considered moving away from block colours and introducing a bit of pizzazz to your wardrobe? Floral prints, tie dye patterns and nature-inspired tribal prints are all very typical of boho style and are the perfect way to add a little bohemian chic into your everyday wear!
Are jeans a staple item in your wardrobe? Opt for a patterned top in a bold scarf print, incorporating a chic fedora and some ankle boots to really finish off the whole look. Alternatively, you can effortlessly wear floral wrap dresses season after season with winter boots or summer sandals.
Accessories Are Key
Whether you’re just adding a bohemian touch or wanting to create a whole boho inspired look, we know that accessories are always key! From oversized sunglasses to layering beads, it is a sure way to transform your outfit from drab to fab.
Handcrafted items and natural materials such as leather and wooden beads will create a classic boho look — the more individual and unique your accessories are, the better. Hoop earrings and a leather bag will effortlessly bring your outfit to life!
Maxi-Mise Your Look!
Maxi skirts, maxi dresses or palazzo pants — anything that is long and flowy is a step in the direction of classic boho chic! Wear a maxi skirt traditionally with a vest top and blue jean jacket for an easy summer ensemble or switch it up with a loose semi-sheer cover up.
If you’re opting for loose-on-loose, always add a bit of structure to your outfit. This can be done using accessories such as your shoes and handbag. A structured handbag made from natural materials is a great addition to a floaty outfit.
Choose A Beautiful Bohemian Dress
From funky prints to floaty maxi dresses and earthy tones, a boho dress is arguably one of the easiest ways you can add bohemian vibes to your wardrobe. Opting for a dress with bell sleeves will truly encapsulate your boho dreams.
You can effortlessly style out your dress all year long by wearing strappy sandals throughout the summer and switching to ankle boots if the weather begins to change. A chunky knitted cardigan is perfect for layering and can also look fabulous thrown across your shoulders when the chilly evenings set in.
Crochet is cute, charming and a huge part of the boho look. There are an abundance of ways crochet can be effortlessly added to any outfit to completely transform it for a whimsical and quirky look . Choose a cardigan or even a top to add a bounce of boho flair.
Additionally, a dress with simple crochet can be layered on top of your favourite swimsuit. If you’re looking to add just a touch of boho chic, a crochet bag is a great way to add a little to your look.

Vintage Tees Are A Must
Are you looking to add boho touches to your outfit, without the floaty materials and embellishments? A great way to give a nod to the era without going all out is by using vintage band tees. The trend kicked off in the 60s and 70s and you can easily express your artsy self through these t-shirts!
Wear your vintage graphic t-shirt with flared jeans and ankle boots for a complete boho makeover, or integrate it into your everyday look by simply tucking it into your favourite pair of trousers or skinny jeans.
Embrace The Earthy Hues
We know that natural materials make for a fabulous boho outfit, and earth tones are a key element too. If you don’t love the loud bright colours, take advantage of the golds, creams, browns and soft greens that speak the boho style.
Natural coloured leather accessories, such as shoes and handbags in a brown or tan colour match perfectly with this earthy feel. Keep it modern and stylish with a structured leather handbag or choose a more natural style to truly complete your boho look.
Layer Up With Slouchy Cardigans
A slouchy cardigan makes the perfect layering companion for almost any outfit. Keeping you warm throughout the winter and perfect as the sun sets during the summer. Choose an oversized look and feel to keep with the bohemian style.
Wear your comfy and cosy knitwear over the top of any of your favourite boho pieces, from flared jeans and floaty tops to floor length dresses and gladiator sandals. Wool knitted items are ideal for that natural and earthy feel!
Walk The Line with Ankle Boots
Boots with straps, lace detail and embroidery are the ideal boho accessory. However, if you’re wanting a more dramatic approach, knee-high boots or patchwork pumps will make sure you achieve the same fabulous look!
Free Floaty Fabrics
Loose and floaty fabrics are the epitome of the boho vibe, so the easiest way to achieve the look is through flowy scarf tops and dresses. An asymmetric cut to your floaty tops and dresses can give your whole ensemble a more artsy look and feel.
Focus on the quality and size of your boho items as they can easily make you look more hippie than boho chic if not fitted correctly and made from cheap materials. With oversized flowy materials, a v-neck can often be the most flattering as it can draw your eye to the centre of your body to make you look tall and lean.
