Boho Top Styles


A boho top becomes the focal point of your outfit. Bohemian-inspired tops are typically loose-fitting and at hip length or longer - decorated with prints or other details influenced by vintage, hippie and ethnic fashion.

You can find these casual tops in a variety of styles, embellished with floral embroideries, cute eyelets or beautiful lace trims. Prints range from hippie tie-dye to beautiful paisley motifs.

Compared to bohemian dresses, a top is much more flexible in creating various fashion looks. It can be paired with either skinny jeans or cargo pants, dress shorts or denim shirts, leggings or a skirt. So use your clothing personality in mixing and matching garments, to make bohemian style your own!

How to Wear a Boho Top

Create your Favorite Bohemian Fashion Look

The various options in boho tops makes it possible for you to create your favorite boho look - from a sweet peasant to a All-American rugged outfit. The choice is yours and up to your personal fashion style.

Examples are:

  • Sweet and frilly - look for tunics and tops with lace and embroidery details. The icing of this outfit is a hippie headpiece, such as a faux hair braided headband.
  • Boho-glam - search for tops with a long bell sleeves and a soft, chiffon fabric. Complete the look with a wide brim hat, jewelry and perhaps a faux fur vest or jacket and of course, a bottom of your choice.
  • Rugged - think cotton tunic tops with subtle boho details such eyelet lace and crepe fabric texture, which can be rugged up with slouch boots, denim shorts with eg cut-offs and a suede hobo handbag. You can also take it up a notch by wearing a print top - think hippie tie-dye or anything that is inspired by the psychedelic fashion era.

My personal fave is the boho-glam - I love glitzing up casual outfit :-)



Update the Look

Wear faux leather leggings with a boho top
Update the boho top with contemporary pieces - trendy or basic - it depends on the top you're wearing. If the style is eye-catching pair it with basics in solid colors or neutrals to balance out the look.

I would pair the top with denim jeans, modern ankle booties and a leather jacket.

Or you can style the look with a short pencil skirt which can be tucked over your top. Or how about a pair of faux leather leggings? Or a pair of dress (tailored) shorts and lace tights?

You might also want to make sure the proportions of the outfit are right - so if you're wearing a loose-fitted top, complement it with a snug bottom.



How to Create Chic Fall/Winter Outfit

The easiest way to update your bohemian-inspired tops for the colder months is to throw in hosiery and a knit cardigan or vest. Just pair it with shorts and tights (eg. opaques, lace, leggings, knit wool, and so on) and finish it off with cozy wool cardigan which showcases the beautiful top!
