#1 Accept your natural femininity

Before mentioning clothing style, it is necessary to feel good about yourself and assume yourself as a woman... This is the basis for adopting a new look.

So, rather than focusing on your little flaws, be aware of your physical and human strengths. You may have a little belly fat, but your figure is harmonious. Maybe your breasts are a little too small according your taste, but your bottom is well rounded. Moreover, you are natural and you emerge a lot of softness. No one's perfect, and that's just fine!

These girls with the ideal proportions, coming straight out of a fashion magazine, they may be beautiful, but completely clichΓ© and insipid πŸ™„. You, at least, have personality and are unique in your kind. We are never getting bored with you, that's for sure!

As you have understood, no matter the look you wish to adopt, to be radiant, you first have to be luminous from within and for that, there is no secret. So leave complexes behindπŸ™…β€β™€οΈ and enjoy life!

#2 Go for the long skirt or the boho dress

Nature and flower power 🌼 are everywhere when it comes to the boho dress code. As a result, we love floral prints, natural fabrics and colors.

The vintage trend will be expressed through the key pieces and fits of the 60s and 70s (in a more modern version), as well as through the retro prints. Know that floral prints are the main focus of the boho style. Consider liberty, XXL flowers (for slim silhouettes), plant, exotic or psychedelic prints. For another kind of style, you can opt for polka dots, gingham or other geometric patterns.

Lastly, because texture and details are an integral part of the look, we rely on lace, crochet, embroidery and tassels that will bring a very trendy retro touch.

The ethnic spirit is also very present in this style. Thus, do not hesitate to integrate pieces with Indian, African or tribal patterns on them.

As for fabrics, choose clothes and accessories that are made of cotton, linen, silk, muslin, (imitation) leather or even wool. Similarly, focus on soft and bright colors. Pastel tones and colors found in nature such as pale pink, peach, soft yellow, shades of green, ecru and brown, ochre and so on... They all go perfectly well with the boho look.

However, we advise you to avoid wearing more than one colorful, printed or embroidered piece so as not to overdo it. For example, a hippie tunic with vintage pattern can be worn with a casual pair of jeans or a skirt in a plain color.

#6 Pick the right shoes

Now that you have composed an outfit that suits you best, all that's left to do is to find the right shoes that will match your bohemian look.

In summer, we recommend ethnic sandals. Focus on Aztec, Indian or Brazilian trends with weaving, patterns, fringe, small shells, pompoms, beads or pendants. Among the different models, orient yourself towards gladiator type shoes with high straps, flat sandals, wedge espadrilles, or even heeled mules.

πŸ’‘ Elements not to be neglected, the choice of shoes is decisive for a successful style: discover our top 7 shoes to wear with a boho dress.

For fall and winter, simply opt for pretty boho booties in leather or suede πŸ‘’. Again, fringe and small details will make the difference.

#7 Accessories are welcomed in your wardrobe

You can tie a printed bandana in your hair or around your neck, mark your waist with a large buckle belt or wear a trilby, fedora or floppy hat, depending on the season. Just be sure not to accumulate too many accessories so as not to overdo it and look disguised.

#8 Complete your style with a nice bag

Like for any well-respected look, the boho bag πŸ‘œ will bring that little finishing touch while proving to be very useful for carrying the necessary. Vary the models according to your outfits and the occasions.

A fringed leather messenger bag for the daily use, a round straw bag for a summer stroll, a braided tote bag for shopping or a drawstring bag for a sports excursion.

πŸ’‘ Depending on the season, the occasion or your body type, it is important to know how to choose your boho bag well.

#9 Assume a natural look

Moisturize your skin with your usual product or use a BB cream to unify your skin tone. A simple blush with golden highlights will be enough to brighten up your face. You can then apply a little mascara to highlight your eyes and if you wish, shade your eyelids with a natural color. A touch of transparent or slightly pink gloss on your lips πŸ‘„ and you're all set!
