Nothing more natural than a nice pair of (imitation) leather sandals to dress up your feet. Opt for an ethnic style (Mexican, Indian, African, Native American), adorned with flowers, jewelry, pearls or pompoms for a guaranteed boho look. Do not hesitate to mix materials (leather, braided materials, metal, wood, wool...). Among the must-haves: the famous Tropezians and their infinite variations, the Spartans with more or less rising bridles such as the gladiator, Greek or Roman goddess, are perfect.

Sandals perfectly match all types of dresses and they bring a stylish boho chic look. Nevertheless, the light dresses with thin straps, bare back or without sleeves go particularly well with these shoes. You can wear them every day, on vacation or even at a wedding in the summer season. For sure, you won't make any mistake with these shoes, the Bohemian look is guaranteed🌻!

2. Western boots for a trendy boho folk look

This year, Coachella and folk influences are in the spotlight in both clothing and shoe stores. To bring character to a boho look, cowboy boots as well as suede or leather boots are a great choice. During winter, with a short turtleneck or long-sleeved dress, opt for high santiags. 👢 With a midi or long dress, you can choose a lower model. The shirt dresses go remarkably well with a pair of boots. Add a cowboy hat and you'll be at the top of the boho folk look. Shades of brown, camel, beige or black are perfect for this type of boots. We love the pointed toes, square or beveled heels, bangs, patterns and mixed textures. The great thing about boots is that they can be worn almost all year round, except in the hot season. Some styles of booties are very comfortable to wear at work and most of all, you'll absolutely love them!

3. Comfortable and trendy sneakers for a sporty retro look

Today's biggest trend: the metallic-colored sneakers 👟 (gold, silver, pewter, copper or pink). Particularly elegant, the derbies are perfect for a retro chic style. For a sporty or vintage look, opt for white sneakers with embroidery, patterns or floral prints.  Match them with a short dress with bare shouldersor an asymmetrical cut.

As you may have noticed, platform shoes are very fashionable these days in the boho universe. Besides, do not hesitate to lengthen your legs by wearing some wedges. The benefit of sneakers is that they are particularly comfortable and can be worn all year round. With these shoes, dare a midi dress in lace, a short one or even a long dress with polka dots. All is allowed but be careful in matching the colors.

4. Converse for the ultimate festival look

As the Converse sneakers bring a touch of punk rock, the Converse crochet shoe is also in vogue. This American brand, made famous thanks to stars such as Elvis Presley or Kurt Cobain, remains a best-seller all over the world. The sports shoe with the Star ⭐ keeps reinventing new declinations and its crochet model is just perfect for the festival season. Combine it with a pair of shorts or a long dress in a solid color.

5. A pair of Dr. Martens or Rangers for a rock or grunge style
