How to choose between the different styles of Bohemian Dresses for women?

The Bohemian Dress is undoubtedly the most essential garment and representative of the Bohemian Fashion. The master words to describe a Bohemian dress are confort, quality, natural and femininity.

In winter period, choose a navy blue dress with long sleeves and thick tights to stay warm. If you choose a mid-length or short dress, put on wool tights to protect your legs.

When summer approaches, feel free to choose the dress that makes you fall in love with it for example an embroidered dress with a naked back. Choose natural materials like cotton, rayon or linen to let your clothes breathe. Some semi-synthetic fabrics are also the case as viscose or silk chiffon.

Regarding the style of the dress, three are distinguished including the authentic Bohemian Style, the Bohemian Chic Style and the Hippie Chic Style.


The Bohemian Style classic is based on the Hippie culture of the 70s. All dresses must be as natural and comfortable as possible. With colors drawn straight from nature and a natural fiber fabric such as cotton, rayon, linen or silk.

For a successful classic Bohemian Style, favor colors that recall spring and flowers, such as orange, brown and red. Pair your dress with a pair of Bohemian Shoes, such as es flat sandal in summer, or a pair of suede booties in winter.

Regarding the cut of the Boho Dress, simply take the one that suits your body type the most. An empire dress, straight or trapeze will go perfectly for a person with small breasts, but with good hips.

Conversely prefer a flowing dress with a V neckline if your upper body is more voluminous than your bottom.
