Layering and flowy dresses, braided hair and natural tone makeups,... These are one of the few things making us go wild about Boho Style. Boho - bohemian - is mainly about the free spirit, peaceful mind, and close-to-nature lifestyle. In this blog, Peaceful Shala will show you some basic rules in boho styling. Let’s dive into the magical world of wandering!


Perfect fabrics for Boho are chiffon, silk, leather, suede, and fur.

Boho is all about flowy, light and natural outfits. And these listed fabrics do a wonderful job in expressing boho spirit to the world. Colors are also a big thing to concern. Keep in mind that only colors you can find in nature can go well with this style (like beige, white, dark green, earthy red or brown,...).

Natural tone colors work best in this style

Don't forget to combine some accessories

Note: Wearing fur can be considered as cruel and unethical. You can try wearing high-quality faux fur instead.

Lace, crochet, and other embellishments are a must

Crochet and lace dresses, skirts, tops, bags, and hats are iconic things Bohemian style. Beads, fringe, and embroidery are also hugely popular and can appear in every Boho outfit.

Create your own mark with fun patterns

There are so many patterns can work well with this style: floral and avant-garde-style accents, or checks and ethnic-inspired prints. Just pick anything that catches your attention when you first saw it.

Comfort - the key ingredient in Boho Style

You’ll need to wear a lot of soft, loose-fitting, flowy clothes, often worn in layers. Boho is all about wildness, natural. So, when picking a boho outfit, pay attention to the key ingredient - comfort.

Combine fitted and flowy clothes

Not all things you wear have to be flowy and fluffy. If you do that, you will end up like a stuffed bear with lots of ribbon and lace on it. Try to combine fitted and flowy clothes. How about a big, earthy shade color with a skinny short and ankle boots as a finishing touch?

Natural shades shoes

There is one rule you should keep in mind when it comes to Boho style: natural. And your shoe style is not an exception. Pick natural shades like beige, tan or brown. People say Boho style is all about Geek (or Roman) - inspired sandals. But it’s not true! Try ballet flats, ankle boots or cowboy boots instead. These shoes also work well with this unique style.

Avoid neon colors

You cannot find neon colors anywhere in nature. So, don’t pick those colors if you want to try Bohemian style.

Instead of neon colors, pick some color that presents in nature - like this blue turquoise

Don’t go overboard

We get it. You love all the things about Boho: from flowy dresses to floral pattern. But don’t try wearing all the things you love at once. You will end up in a mess you don’t know how to fix. Try to mix and match a few things at a time and see the magic.


Accessories are a must to all boho souls

Whether it is thin silver bracelets set or a wooden bangle, you need it to complete your Boho outfit. Don’t forget to add a cute anklet and make your style stand out of the crowd.
