Bohemian & Chic

Bohemian chic refers to a clothing fashion inspired by the seventies. Wearing loose-fitting, comfortable clothes with floral or ethnic prints and warm, skillfully accessorized colours is the essence of the bohemian silhouette. Unavoidable, this style is very feminine, fresh and poetic. It will be perfect for dreamy and free women, who appreciate pretty materials and light and colourful fabrics. Here is an overview of the different types of outfits to discover how to dress bohemian chic.

The Bohemian Dress

It is often a long dress, evanescent, light and colourful.

  • Choose it in warm tones, brown and red are the favourite colours of boho chic silhouettes.
  • Blue, especially turquoise, which combines beautifully with brown, is also very popular.

All shades of brown, from camel to caramel to dark brown are perfect. Purple is also very trendy, especially when combined with other tones. White is a basic bohemian style. For example, petticoats in white, off-white or cream tones or lace borders look great. The latter brings a feminine and chic touch.

Dresses are adorned with ethnic prints or floral patterns. The fabric is light, it sometimes plays with transparency and the superimposition of light petticoats. For a chic touch, lace, but also veil or sequins and embroideries make the dress inimitable. It is a piece to have in your dressing room.

The dress is meant to be comfortable. So it is worn wide even if the top is closer to the body, the skirt is flared and flowing. The top is round or low-cut, depending on your preferences. Sometimes, a pretty lacing or pompoms attached to a tie decorate a V-neck. The dress adapts to all seasons, the long-sleeved models dress you all year round. In summer, shorter and lighter models allow you to enjoy the sun.

The Bohemian Skirt

Like the dress, the skirt is worn rather wide, fluid, light and most often long. Floral prints or plain colours are worn with light petticoats. Overlays can also be used. Your skirt also adapts to the seasons, and will be shorter in the summer.

Decorated with lace, a pretty leather belt, sequins, or more sober and plain, the skirt can be worn with a blouse, a tunic, a pretty white blouse or a small jacket in faded denim. Together with the dress, they will be the centerpieces of your chic bohemian wardrobe. Trousers are not banned in this style of dress. But prefer faded jeans, which you accessorize. It is the skirts and dresses that give charm to this resolutely feminine style. Whatever your morphology, the bohemian long skirt will enhance you.


The Bohemian Blouse

The bohemian blouse is absolutely essential! It can be worn with a skirt or jeans, or jean shorts adorned with lace. It's such a comfortable top that you can't do without it.
Feminine, the blouse is plain, floral or printed with ethnic patterns. It is often full of fantasy: decorated with embroidery, small pompoms, fringes, or lace. More sober, in white, for example, it is then issued from a mixture of materials, in veil or lace.
Romantic, when it adorns a country side, or mysterious, when it has moiré colours, it is often worn rather short. The sleeves are left wide or tightened at the end, sometimes with frills. These sleeves can also be cut asymmetrically giving them an extra charm. The collar, V or round, is sometimes tied with small ornaments such as tassels.
This top, fluid and light, is a must have in spring and autumn. Small short-sleeved blouses will also accompany you this summer. The advantage of the blouse is that it suits all silhouettes because the flared models hide the small curves.

The Bohemian Tunic

Ample et agréable à porter, elle s'harmonise à toutes les silhouettes. Elle sera du plus bel effet sur un jean ou un short, ou sur un pantalon uni.

Long and comfortable, the bohemian chic tunic is a feminine and trendy top. White models with openwork sleeves or plain with fringes are very popular. But, the tunic is constantly reinventing itself to be closer to your desires. Coloured, printed or tie and dye models, simple or loaded with beads, embroidery or small charms are endlessly available. Usually worn wide, it is easily accessorized at the waist with a pretty belt.
Ample and pleasant to wear, it harmonizes with all silhouettes. It will look great on jeans or shorts, or on plain trousers. 

Bohemian jewelry

They are perfect to give style to all your outfits. If you have a rather classic style, they will bring a touch of fantasy to it, but with a bohemian outfit, they will embellish it even more.

  • Necklaces: long necklaces decorated with large rows of coloured pearls or long chains decorated with feathers or small stones are to be preferred. Feathers and turquoise or brown stones are worn as pendants as well as more elaborate or openwork jewellery. The colour silver is also trendy for chains and other ornaments;
  • Bracelets: multi-row and multi-material, they have been very fashionable for several years. Mixed with pearls, ribbons, charms, cords, stones, shells, they are often worn in several copies and elegantly decorate your wrists;
  • Earrings: metal earrings, decorated with feathers or pretty stones, enhance the contours of your face;
  • Rings: made of metal, often silvery and decorated with large stones, the ring is an essential and always trendy accessory.

Bohemian chic clothing, the little extras of an inimitable style

  • A touch of white always goes well with a more colourful room. For example, a white blouse or blouse and a multicoloured skirt gives you a stylish look;
  • A headband gives style to your silhouette and accentuates the bohemian side. You can also embellish your hair with a large flower on a hair clip for a more assertive hippie look;
  • The bohemian bag: brown with fringes, or embroidered or even adorned with knitted patterns, it's a basic that makes its effect;
  • The boots; leather boots, with pretty cuts will go marvelously with your dresses or long skirts;
  • Jeans, whether slim, or boyfriend jeans, are an ideal companion for tops such as tunics or blouses;
  • The small fitted jacket in jeans or boho chic, with colourful embroidery, or entirely printed with flowers can give a nice contrast to a long tunic;
  • Shorts, with lace ornaments, combined with a sleeveless blouse and flat sandals is the bohemian formula for summer.
