Today, I want to talk to you about one of the must-have pieces for bohemians who care about their look: boots. Key elements of a bohemian outfit, the style of these shoes is not to be neglected if you want to perfect your look and bring character to your outfit. In worn leather, they will speak to the bohemians whose style tends towards roots. In woven textile, they will perfectly dress the outfits of a romantic bohemian. How to choose them? How to differentiate beautiful, stylish boots from cheap, falsely bohemian and sometimes in bad taste? Elements of answers.
If your look tends towards bohemian roots, then without any hesitation, choose leather. (If you're vegan, a very well imitated fake leather can do the trick.) Don't be afraid to take them second hand, because the more imperfect the leather is, the more it's lived and the better your boots will look and strengthen your roots look. The idea being that they tell a story, that they have come a long way.
In terms of their shape, you can easily go for boots with pointed or rounded tips. Even square ones! It's all the same and really depends on your tastes. The shape of the heel is more important. A bevelled heel, western boots style is in my opinion a priority to give this character and this particular bohemian roots style to your shoes. However, forget plastic heels, it breaks everything.
Another particularity that I appreciate is an addition of detail on the shoe. An embroidery, a thin metallic piece at the end of the boot, a short belt that surrounds the bottom of the shoe... This kind of detail is absolutely great if you don't overdo it. Beware because this is where the bad taste, the too much can burst in and completely break the style of a boot that had potential.
Color level, you have the field free. Black, brown, beige, green, red or camel, it doesn't matter, as long as they have character.
If your look is more romantic bohemian, your boots can afford to be less worn, smoother, cotton or mesh, or leather or faux leather (as long as it's well reproduced), it doesn't matter. As for heels, the bevelled shape is always recommended, but in this case you can also opt for a straighter shape. Finally, as far as colours are concerned, you can play with light, pastel shades, beige, camel, off-white. For a most romantic effect!
