The bohemian fashion style is taking our world by storm, with big brands such as Anthropologie and Free People following suit in creating high-end custom pieces that give you that effortless free-spirited look that is so popular. Beautifully, the bohemian style is highly inclusive and looks good on all body types. These flowy and flattering cuts and styles are perfect for bigger bodies, and actively protest the construct that only small bodies can dress fashionably. Many brands are creating perfect plus size clothing options that accommodate your inner free spirit. The boho look is a perfect blending of a reimagined Little House on the Prairie cottage core, with all the frolicking in fields that comes from flowy dresses and all the antiquated vintage pieces of another era being turned into something brand new and modern. Mix in a little hippie and world traveler vibes, and you’ve reached the boho style we all come to love. So what are the best bohemian styles for your plus-size closet? We’ve compiled a list below to help you know what kind of style to keep an eye out for next time you go shopping.
Maxi Dresses with Bold Patterns
First and foremost, the most tried and true staple style for the Bohemian look is the maxi dress. Bonus points if it has a bold or paisley print. The peasant sleeves or textured style also can give your maxi dress the perfect boho look. These flowy dresses look good on every body type!
If you're okay with showing a little skin, a little two-piece set could be such a cute look! Many women have found that boho cropped tops and high-waisted flowy pants/skirts are a fun way to express their inner free spirit. The gaucho pant is back in style and can be paired with a fun print or fabric-matching top.
A wide neck and puffy sleeves are the key components to a perfect peasant blouse look. These iconic fluffy sleeves are such a fun look and come in all shapes and sizes. From off-the-shoulder to a short sleeve to three-quarter inch and long sleeve, the peasant top is an essential look in any boho beauty’s wardrobe.
In true hippie fashion, flared jeans are a perfect way to give your closet a unique spin. Rather than buying a conventional jean cut, flare jeans allow you to give a nod to decades past while maintaining a modern, fun look.
Embroidered pieces are a fantastic way to add a true bohemian flair to any top or pants. The unique threaded and sometimes beaded embellishments can enhance a piece to have the feel and artistry of times past while making the fabric a current and one-of-a-kind addition to your wardrobe.
Adding texture to your jacket or bag is a staple in the hippie and boho wardrobe capsule. The brown fringe can integrate a grounding neutral color to an outfit that is otherwise riddled with color and pattern. Furthermore, a fringe piece that is bold in color is an excellent way to add some pop and texture to your look.
Woven or Wooden Accessories
Neutral textures are an excellent way to ground an outfit that is bright and colorful. This can be done through woven textiles or wooden accessories. Whether it’s in chunky wooden wedges, textured dangly earrings, or a woven bag, the bohemian style can only be enhanced through the implementation of a pop of these natural elements.
Antique gold jewelry, bold statement earrings made of different textile materials, and turquoise jewelry pieces are staples to the bohemian look. Earrings made of fringe string, woven yarn, bright beads, porcelain materials, and more are a great way to add texture and color to an outfit. Unique jewelry gives the effortless world traveler look that is quintessential to the bohemian look.
Quilted or Crocheted Pieces
The beautiful thing about the bohemian style is that it has poignant nods to antique looks reimagined. Taking the essence of the modern pioneer woman who can both frolic in fields like a free spirit and work with weathered hands in the kitchen, clothing that uses quilted or crocheted fabrics echo of times past while being a modern trendy look.
Somehow managing to be bold and down to earth in the same breath, the brimmed hat is essential to the Bohemian style. The perfect accessory to the maxi dress or any boho outfit, the brimmed hat can enhance every look to give the free-spirited desert goddess look that is quintessential to this aesthetic.
