What is the winter bohemian look? 

Often thought of as a summer trend, the bohemian style can nevertheless be found forall seasons. Of course, when the weather is cold, it is not possible to settle for a little light dress and sandals. For those times of the year when the weather is acting up, you can totally dress bohemian by overlapping several layers of clothing, sometimes leaving some layers hanging out and playing withthedifferent textiles and prints

In addition, the boho trend leaves the lion's share to natural materials: cotton, linen, leather, but also wool, for example, which has a strong insulating power, ideal for winter. 

To sum up, dressing bohemian in winter leaves you even more possibilities to mix your clothes and wear a style that suits you. 

Go for the monochromatic look with different textures

Are you a fan of bohemian fashion? In that case, prints and patterns surely have no secrets for you anymore! Yet, in winter, this trend can also be adopted with a monochrome style, choosing clothes with original textures or even embroidery.

Don't hesitate to combine dresses with jackets you wouldn't necessarily associate them with, by playing on the contrasts. The velvet or leather, for example, often allow you to showcase silkier and brighter fabrics.  

👉 Winter is also the season for cool colors such as blue, gray, purple or even green. It's time to incorporate them into your bohemian wardrobe by playing with gradients! 

The cardigan or chunky sweater: the must-have bohemian piece for winter

Are you afraid of being cold with a simple long dress? Know that sweaters and cardigans help give a cozy side to your bohemian look. To stay on trend and be warm, I recommend you choose models that are quitelong and thick, with coarse knits

We often think that loose clothing tends to weigh down our figure and widen our waist. This is not the case! In fact, it is rather the opposite that happens. With loose, long clothes,your figure will look slimmer and sleeker

Besides, being comfortable in your clothes will make you look like a natural and spontaneous, confident person.😉

Warm up your legs with high boots or thigh-high boots

Even if you choose them thick, tights aren't always enough to keep you warm when wearing a dress. To increase the surface area of your body covered by clothes, you can also bet on boots, or even better, thigh-high boots. These very high shoes will cover a large part of your legs, while giving you avery feminine look. They will allow you to sublimate both a short dress and a long dress!

👉 If you want to elongate and slim down your figure, I would advise you to choose boots with heels instead. However, flats will also work just fine if you can't wear heels or need comfortable shoes on a daily basis, for work for example. 

Fringes: the winter boho chic detail

As you probably already know, the bohemian style is characterized by many creative and original details. These can include natural and colorful embroidered patterns, or beads. These small marks of personalization are a way to make your clothes your own and to show, through them, the person you are.

So, it was the hippies, in the 70s, who started to reinvent everyday clothing in this way, in order to show their individuality and convictions. The sign "peace and love", for example, is part of their recurring motifs! 

Inspired by the customs of the American Indians and rehabilitating them, the hippies have also brought bangs up to date, which can be found in the bohemian fashion of today. They are now even invited on the catwalks, this season, as we saw at Prada, Boss and Christian Dior! 


So it's now or never to adopt bangs in your wardrobe, to accompany a dress or any other bohemian outfit, accompanying it with, as you choose: 

  • with afringed jacket,
  • with fringed booties,
  • with a bag with this type of detailing...

Build on the accessories to express your bohemian spirit! 

Are you wondering how to accessorize your bohemian dress? Because if you like this trend, chances are you also like to wear lots of accessories to personalize your look

Yet, I often find that in winter, it is less common to wear accessories. Sometimes this can be for a practical reason: big rings, for example, often get stuck in clothing when you put them on... which happens many times a day in winter. As with clothing, I recommend instead combining small accessories and banking on seasonally appropriate pieces, such as the ones I'm going to share with you in the following lines. 

The hat

To look good, there is nothing like choosing a beautiful hat, which will sublimate your winter bohemian dress! Instead, to stay in the boho style, I recommend wearing natural colors, from light camel brown to dark brown, choosing your headpiece to match the rest of your outfit.

👉 To be even warmer, combine your hat with a big scarf in oversized knitwear.😉

The small leather bag

Super practical on a day-to-day basis, the small leather bag will be your best friend if you're wearing a bohemian long dress! Indeed, in winter, it is often necessary to always have on you plenty of small items such as lip balm, hand cream, your gloves, your laptop, etc. 

In the absence of pockets on your dress, a small bag will therefore be ideal for all of them storing and having easy access to them. As mentioned before, you can choose it in the boho style, with bangs, embroidery or beads...
