The word bohemian is often thrown around here and there where it comes to defining style and expressing wardrobes. But what actually is it?
Bohemianism is all about rejecting conventions and dressing how you want to - the basic rule being to live for the moment. You need to think about comfort and self-expression. Dressing for your body type is key, with a style that suits you and something you feel comfortable in. There are a few key principles which characterise a bohemian dress code, which we’ve highlighted below.
Bright colours and graphic prints seem to dominate the mood of bohemian dressing. Here at Frocks we love people to express their own style, and we have some beautiful dresses that fit the bohemian dress code. If you love body con dresses, something that nips you in at the waist, or prefer a maxi dress with a bold print, we have dresses with bold floral prints in each of these styles – bound to flatter your figure whilst making a real statement. But if you’d rather go for layering, our Jolaby dresses could be perfect too.
The other side of the coin is all about accessorising and detail. Enjoy decoration, such as embroidered pieces, fringing and beading – and don’t be afraid to pile on the jewellery! We love accessorising, and have some unique and quirky pieces. Our Rew scarves make a real statement, adding texture and volume to an outfit. Equally, our crystal bangles couple be the perfect accompaniment for an outfit needing a bit of sparkle and colour – they add a great ‘jangle’ to your outfit too! You might also love our Batucada necklaces and bracelets, which epitomise bohemian style – unusual and feminine.
To complete your look, you may need a few of the following:
- Ankle boots
- Head wraps and hairbands
- Gladiator sandals
- Knit cardigans and sweaters
- A floppy brimmed hat
- A hippie-chic purse
- Big sunglasses
- Oversized patterned scarves
Most of all, just have fun with your outfits. Feel comfortable being bright and beautiful - express and dress to impress!
