Plus-Size Bohemian Style Clothes Shopping Guides at Elegant Plus:

One of the most popular style tribes on Elegant Plus, we have numerous specialized in depth shopping guides of interest to the full figured bohemian princess.  More general shopping information can be found below the following directory.
 


 

The BoHo or Bohemian style is one of the most individual and diverse clothing styles.  Natural fibers, hand crafted textures and details, and increasingly ethical and eco fashion ideals are an integral part of the style.  Layering different textures, patterns, and colors together to create a unique look is part of what makes the style so eclectic.  Global prints, ethnic and tribal traditional patterns and embellishments, and folk couture elements are important part of the mix with various traditional textile traditions coming to the fore from season to season.  Vintage fashion references are also common, especially those with a more romantic appeal.

Museum exhibitions highlighting various cultures and their crafting traditions including jewelry, textiles, and surface design can heavily influence trends available to this style tribe. Color palettes tend to be neutral, earthy, and derived from nature although colorful detailing such as embroidery and beading are not unusual.  Florals, lace and other soft, romantic pieces often mix with these global prints in the same outfit.  Meanwhile denim, suede, and leather can create and tough and tender twist.

Vintage styles often play a part in this look, drawing on periods ranging from the velvet bunout coats and head pieces of the flapper era to the colorfully patterned dresses and tops of the sixties and seventies.  In addition, select pieces from other stylized trends such as steampunk and goth can be worked into this look. Lagenlook is a BoHo sub-type and is literally German for Layered Look. Natural fibers and art-to-wear designer pieces are particularly prevalent in this sub group.

Long flowing lines are a signature part of the style with sweeping dusters, maxi dresses and skirts, and lean tunics frequent components of ensembles, and are layered over leggings and tights with boots or flats.  Bold, ethnic or artisan made jewelry and other accessories such as scarves and hats are an enormously important part of BoHo fashion with pieces often chosen from the unique, one-of-a-kind wearable art milieu.  Jeans and denim can be both simple and in classic silhouettes and washes, or embroidered and beaded with floral or ethnic patterns.

The summer art and music festival season often creates a trendy fashion sub-trend during warmer weather for BoHo Chic that goes beyond the year-long adherents. Coachella and Burning Man are two of the most well known, but there are many others.  Winter resort, beach and cruise vacations are another time when some who wear other styles more frequently will indulge in breezy bohemian styles.  Crochet lace, cotton Indian prints, and beaded sandals are the most prevalent choices.  Those who adhere more closely to the BoHo style tribe often indulge in rich velvets in the winter months, in addition to eco-friendly and natural fiber fabrics such as organic cotton, linen, and silk.
