BoHo Accessories, Jewelry & Shoes Report

Accessories are the true key to defining any look or signature style.  Nobody knows that better than the Bohemian princesses who load up on unusual and artful accessories that express their inner personality. 

Natural materials from shell to stone to fabrics and leathers are often favored.  Inspirations are drawn from ethnic traditions from around the world to create a truly global style. Hand-made, artisanal details often play an important role. Vintage style influences can sometimes give a romantic edge.  Beading, sequins, and embroidery all play prominent roles.

If any style tribe knows how to layer and mix patterns, textures, colors, and materials to create a truly unique and eclectic look, it would be the BoHo fashionistas.  Scarves can layer another pattern or texture.  Jewelry is often hand crafted or globally inspired by ethnic craftsmen. 

Kimonos, capes, and ruana wraps are enormously popular for 2015 and can be found at many different types of retailers.  Styles are ranging from Southwest blanket prints to fringed piano shawl styles, along with folkloric embroidered and natural fiber and hand crafted looks.

Particularly challenging items to find for plus-sizes are belts, leggings, tights and wide-calf boots that are important to this look.  Longer necklaces and scarves, larger ring sizes, and bracelets that fit larger wrists can also be hard-to-find.

Internet Shopping Resources for BoHo Accessories

One the best places around for unique, one of a kind, hand crafted items from around the world is Novica.  A National Geographic company, they support independent artisans with Fair Trade arrangements.  Each one has a bio so you can learn more about their story.  This is a fantastic place for jewelry, scarves, and bags.  Quantities are limited so you can be sure to find something truly unique and unusual.

Those who need longer necklaces and larger ring sizes will find a wide variety of jewelry at QVC.  The inventory is huge and the styles incredibly varied.  This is a great spot for hand bags, and funky items such as patterned or luxury fiber socks such as cashmere, too.  Price points run the gamut from very affordable to pricy, but many also have installment payment plans available.

Looking for flowers for your hair, jazzy Art Deco and flower child hair ornaments, and fun items such as hats, snoods and fascinators?  The spots to look are Mod Cloth and Unique Vintage, which both also have funky and off beat collections of shoes. Those searching for Western twist can find fancy belt buckles and boot jewelry with plenty of bling at Back in the Saddle.

One of the best spots for eclectic finds is eBay, generally, where you can find ethnic jewelry from around the world, scarves, shoes, bags, and anything you can imagine.  Some is hand crafted. Some is vintage.  Some is just gorgeous and fun.   One of our favorite shops is Maya Boutique where burnout silk velvet kimonos, scarves, and poncho tops in sizes that fit up to 5X are a specialty.  They also carry cashmere capes in the same sizes.  Both are fantastic art-to-wear pieces favored by bohemian fashionistas.

The North Style catalog has a few bohemian fashion finds, but it's their accessories inventory that really shines.  Hand painted leather shoes, funky folk pattern socks, tooled leather bags, and both winter and all year patterned scarfs at moderate prices are worth the stop.  Portland based Sahalie is another spot for fabulous shoe and boot finds, gorgeous bohemian patterned scarves, bags, and fun artisan inspired jewelry.

Coldwater Creek has long had an artisan edge to their detailing making them a favorite stop for many looking for jewelry and accessories.  Jewelry has long been their strength, but the patterned scarfs, bags, and felt hats are also worthwhile.   Soft Surroundings is an upscale BoHo mecca, so it's no surprise that their jewelry collection is one of the best.  Truly global in inspiration pieces are both unique an exquisitely beautiful.  Their long necklaces and bold bracelets are especially good selections for larger women. Unusual belts, wraps, and scarfs in natural fibers are top quality.

Trendy retailers such as Torrid and Rue 21 are the spots to find  plus-size leggings.  Torrid's inventory leans towards a gothier look but can sometimes stock hard-to-find items such as lace leggings in size XL to 5X.  Rue 21 has a constantly changing inventory, but folk patterns and bohemian prints are regularly turning up at hard to beat prices for size 1X to 3X.

Pyramid Collection has a darker, more romantic and vintage edge to their accessories. Meanwhile, Ashro is the go to spot for dramatic, statement jewelry including bib necklaces.
