BoHo style is unique and eclectic and often characterized by layering textures, prints, and fabrics together. Goth, and steampunk looks can play a role, along with western or global inspirations. A vintage romantic or trendy vibe can be mixed in, as well. 

In addition to sweaters and sweeping dusters, lighter blazer style jackets and outerwear can add that finishing touch of artistic flair. Bohemian styles can include capes, vests, kimonos, and poncho styles.

Global and ethnic prints, (faux) leather, suede and fur, textured and embossed velvets, and artistic or folk art details are common.  Embroidered denim jackets are extremely popular. Fine wools such as alpaca, merino, and cashmere are common in more upscale, designer coats.

Worn with sweeping long skirts and dresses, or layered over jeans or leggings,  bohemian chic jackets come in a variety of weights for more temperate climates to the most cold and chilly.

Frequently paired with tall leather boots, if you have wide calves be sure to check out Wide-Calf Boot Guide.

With the Bohemian style in mainstream fashion this year, scarves are becoming an extremely important accessory to add even more pattern to outfits.  This can often give true Bohemian Princesses an opportunity to pattern mix for a unique style statement of their own.

Internet Shopping Resources for BoHo Chic Jackets & Outerwear

Because the style is so eclectic, often just the right coat is a fashion find at a retailer that otherwise carries more classic or trendy styles.

 The major, upscale department stores are the best resource for high end plus-size options. Two of the best for BoHo designers and brands are Neiman Marcus and Dillard's.  Look for designers such as Johnny Was for vintage romantic and embroidered coat styles.  Designers such as Bryn Walker and Eileen Fisher offers wool coats in simple silhouettes that often work extremely well over BoHo looks.

Some of the most unusual finds come from catalogs.  Back in the Saddle is a goldmine for moderately priced western inspired looks including denim, fringed suede, and tribal print fleece jackets in size S to 3X.   Sister catalog, North Style, offers more sophisticated, contemporary options with an art-to-wear vibe in the same size range.  The contemporary style with an artisan twist that is the hallmark of Coldwater Creek style offers some gorgeous finds, often in natural fibers for size S to 3X. 

Painted kimonos and toppers in quality fabrics are regularly available from Draper's and Damon's in sizes S to 3X and occasionally from plus specialty retailers such as Torrid and Avenue in sizes up to 6X.
