How to dress up perfectly in boho winter style?

Boho Vibe will show you how layering works, which items are must-haves, without missing out on this season's trendiest shoes and accessories.

The art of layering

Are you familiar with the layering clothes fashion? 😀

Layering clothes in a stylish way is totally adapted to the bohemian look. By wearing multiple layers, you'll stay warm no matter what the weather is like outside.

It's also a great way to deal with changing temperatures as you can remove or add layers throughout the day. As a result, all your favorite summer pieces may be brought back to life by slipping them underneath a winter garment. However, this trick must be perfectly mastered if you do not wish to look like a sack of potatoes or a Michelin man.

art of layering

First of all, go from the lightest to the bulkiest clothes by overlapping two or three pieces, don't overdo it either.

For example, consider a short dress made of cotton beneath a large knitted vest or a thin blouse beneath a thick sweater. Don't forget to make the bottom layers stick out for a trendy look. Likewise, roll up your sleeves and pull out your collar in order to show off your beautiful blouse underneath your knitwear.

Vary the lengths, thicknesses and fabrics to achieve a nice layering effect and, most importantly, avoid layering two bulky fabrics one above the other.

As for the choice of colors, there are two solutions: either you select a specific color palette 🎨. A range of brown or blue shades, for example. Either you mix different shades. Consider softening the patterns and vivid colors by matching them with more sober clothes.

You may also put a long coat on top of your jacket or match two jackets of different length and fabric : very trendy! 👌
