The Bohemian lifestyle speaks free spirit and artistic. If you want to channel this to your fashion style, then it is important to get the right essentials. Perfect for summer, the look includes super comfy, fuss-free clothing items and shoes, and layered on jewellery, amongst others. So here they are for your easy perusal.

Boho Dresses

Starting with the dress, find one that is loose-fitting with a cinched waist so your curves are not hidden. The neckline can range from round neck to off shoulder. Halters and open shoulder dresses are also very Boho chic this season. Sleeve-wise, either go for strappy or bell-sleeves. Look for traditional prints with quirky design to stand out. Details like tassels are also very Bohemian. In terms of length, the dresses can range from mini to midi to maxi. For the longer lengths, try looking for thigh high slits as they are all the rage right now.

Boho Jewellery

The key to boho jewellery is layering and mixing and matching different intricate pieces. And unlike other styles, this is one look where you can wear earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets all at the same time. You can start with stacking statement rings like midi and above the knuckle rings. Chokers also go very well with the Boho chic vibe so layer that with longer delicate chains. Same goes with bracelets. You can choose between sterling silver, brass, or gold, but only stick to one metal at a time. Quartz crystal and gemstones like Turquoise with healing properties as well as Cowrie shells are great accents to complete the look. Just be careful not to overload; stop when you cannot move freely or when you start resembling an old gypsy lady.

Boho Headband

The Bohemian look is not complete without a unique headband. You can go all out with the feathers, but for a more put together outfit, try opting for a chain headband, or even a double strand braid headband in craft leather. You can also wear a turban. Regardless of what type of Boho headband you choose, keep your hair down for that care free vibe.

Boho Footwear

For your feet, your best bet are sandals. That way you can walk however you please without worrying about falling over. Right now, the ultimate footwear that oozes Bohemian are these pom pom sandals. They are unconventional, colourful and just a happy looking pair. The straps go around your legs up to your calves, and are adorned with colourful pom poms as well as little delicate charms and tassels.

Boho Shrugs

If you are not really a dress kind of girl, then Bohemian shrugs are just for you. Simply pair a tank top or crop top with distressed cut off shorts, and pull on a Boho shrug over that. It is comfortable and breezy, and everything you have ever wanted. They come in pretty patterns and prints, and are quite versatile; you can use it as a bikini coverup.

The more you have on this list, the more your boho chic vibe will be completed. Just make sure that you are comfortable and the final look reflects your inner goddess.
