Bohemian style clothing is some of the most popular in plus-sizes for week-end, resort, and casual wear across all age groups. 

Technically a "style tribe", the influence is often felt in trendy mainstream fashion while still turning up in more classic and contemporary shops as well. BoHo dresses and maxi dresses have been the most popular fashion items in recent years, but skirts coordinated with beaded, embroidered, lace, and other embellished tops have held their ground with those favoring the look.

BoHo skirts are often characterized by natural fibers and materials, earth tones and colors found in nature, and details that evoke a hand-made quality.  Others have more of a vintage quality as part of the eclecticism of the BoHo aesthetic.

Frequently free flowing, maxi skirts are the most prevalent style.  Ethnic prints, beading, embroidery and crochet lace are an integral part of the style.  These qualities make them popular resort wear and summer music festival styles.  Some styles also make good swim cover ups.  The winter months can see options done in heavier fabrics such as velvet and suede.  They are sometimes layered over colorful or patterned tights, or leggings.

Tall, leather boots in cooler months, and beaded sandals in warmer weather are the usual footwear pairings.  Leggings and tights are commonly layered underneath. Leather and suede are frequently mixed into the look with faux leathers and suedes chosen by vegetarian and animal rights activists who follow the style.

Shopping Resources for BoHo Plus-Size Skirts

Somewhat scarcer than dresses, skirts are not as well represented in the department stores.  Occasionally boho style skirts will turn up at one that regularly carries designer labels such as Johnny Was. Solid black knit maxi skirts are more common in the summer and can frequently be found from labels such as Eileen Fisher and Michael Kors at Dillard's and Neiman Marcus.

Plus trendy retailer Rainbow Shops has recently expanded their collections to include more large sizes in 1X to 3X with bohemian flavors felt throughout the collection. Characterized by many natural fibers and an artistic flavor, Portland based Sahalie is another great fashion find for BoHo fashionistas with sizes available from XS to 3X.  Good for tall women, in addition to average height, is the resort knit designer Rachel Pally.  The White Label collection is available from size 1X to 3X, with extra long lengths meant to be snipped to customize.

The return of Coldwater Creek in ecommerce and catalog form only is another boon for skirts with artistic detailing in size S to 3X.  Meanwhile, Soft Surroundings is a must stop for more upscale shoppers who appreciate global inspired prints, ethnic detailing, and natural fibers for size 2 to 24 with petite and tall sizes available to 18 in selected styles.

Pyramid Collection frequently has velvet and lace options, in addition to peasant and maxi styles in both solids and prints.  Sizing here is XS to 3X (28W).  Their sister catalog, Serengeti, is stronger in crinkle dress styles but does from time to time offer tiered, crinkle peasant skirts in size S to 3X. Bedford Fair can also be an overlooked resource for affordable tiered skirt options.
