I Want a New Bohemian Look

Okayy, I'm a teenager so as you can imagine my fashion is always changing. Now though, I really want to go bohemian and all floral, but just don't know where to start, help urgently:/ Thanks xx


Hi Emileigh, I'm sorry for my late response - I've been out of town (spring vacay).

For your journey to a new bohemian fashion style, here some pointers:

Determine your clothing personality

If you want to create a stylish and unique bohemian look you first need to decide what type of boho look you want to achieve. This means digging a bit deep by analyzing your personality. Like for example, if you're instinctively drawn to edgy, eclectic clothes and you want to go boho then mix them together - wear a bright floral skirt, tuck in a casual t-shirt, and add leather and chain bracelets and perhaps a pair of black ankle boots with a pair of tights into the mix.

Here are examples:

August 2011 Update: Make sure to take the style quiz in the Personal Fashion Style-section.

This is quite essential, and perhaps the single most important first step when developing your new bohemian look!

Determine your best colors

After deciding what type of look you're aiming for, start building your wardrobe by determining what colors suit you and find clothes in those colors.

Practice layering

Decide what you want to wear as a base clothing, it could be a pair of jeans and a simple, flowy tunic, or a cute floral dress. If you're going for the dress, do a minimal layering (which means choose solid colored clothes to wear on top) with a cardigan, waist belt, sandals and stacks of bracelets.

For the jeans+top outfit you can be more daring by adding a cardigan, boho print scarf, layers of necklaces and stacks of bracelets.

Hope this helps!

Why Are Most of the Bohemian Look Clothes Sleeveless?

I love the bohemian look but I have one issue: Why are most of the bohemian look clothes sleeveless? What about winter?


I do not have a definite answer to why bohemian clothes are like that, but I would think it goes hand in hand with the flowy, summery, worry-free style that exudes in bohemian fashion.

But the short sleeves does give you another reason to layer up your short sleeved bohemian dresses and tops with flowy cardigans and vests for winter which gives a perfect finishing touch to the bohemian look.

Also, short sleeves look better with vests, which are essentials in a bohemian personality gal's wardrobe!

Kind regards,
