A guide to finding the perfect bohemian dress for you

Bohemian style is all about expressing yourself through clothing. It’s inspired by people who live unconventional lives like constant travellers, actors and writers. Finding the perfect bohemian dress for you, all depends on your mood, energy and personal taste...

Bohemian dresses: short or maxi? 

There are no rules here, but longer length dresses, like midi and maxi dresses, work great to give you more fabric and freedom to move as you please.

Float around in multiple layers of beautiful bohemian print and loose capped sleeves for a laid-back, free and easy vibe.

Your boho dress should be completely comfortable and make you feel like anything is possible.

An alternative to bohemian maxi dresses, would be a beautiful maxi skirt and cute cropped top if you wanted to show a bit more skin.

Bohemian colours and prints 

Warm or cool? Both!

One of the easiest ways to find the perfect bohemian dress, is to start with a colour palette of both warm and cool hues.

For warm tones, think earthy browns, burnt oranges and sunshine yellows, and for cool tones, think icy blues, washed-out greens and creamy whites.

When it comes to prints, romantic florals work really well and also mixed prints too. It all depends how muted or bold you want your bohemian dress to be.

Another pattern to look out for is tie dye, which is a bohemian technique we’ve borrowed from the hippie culture of the 60s, that creates totally unique, dreamy patterns with dye.
