Style Tip 1: Accessorize with statement pieces 

One of the best ways to style a boho dress is to accessorize it with statement pieces. By adding unique and bold accessories, you can elevate your boho dress and create a truly one-of-a-kind look. Enhance your boho dress by complementing it with accessories such as chunky jewellery, bags, and wide-brimmed hats. These accessories can add interest and personality to your outfit, and help you stand out. When accessorizing with statement pieces, it's important to be mindful of how you mix and match different accessories.



For instance, when the stunning Mahiya Aster Mini Dress is paired with the Mykonos Bag the pattern on the bag complements the flower design on the dress creating a show-stopping and unified outfit.   

One example of a bold and unique accessory that can enhance a boho dress is the Lotus Soul Ring. This chunky piece of jewellery adds interest and personality to any outfit and can help you stand out. When accessorizing with statement pieces, it's important to be mindful of how you mix and match different accessories. To get the most impact, try pairing complementary colours or patterns, and mix different textures and styles to create a cohesive look. With the right accessories, you can transform your boho dress into a show-stopping outfit that is perfect for any occasion.

Style Tip 2: Add Layering to Your Bohemian Dresses

Layering is a great way to add depth and dimension to a boho dress. Whether you opt for a jacket or a cardigan, layering can help you create a more dynamic and interesting outfit. When it comes to choosing the right layers for your boho dress, there are many options to consider. Denim jackets are a classic choice that works well with just about any boho dress, while our Apache Suede Jacket can add a bit of edge to your look. Vests are another popular option and can add a touch of bohemian charm to your outfit.

When choosing layers for your boho dress, it's important to consider the weather, the occasion, and your personal style. For cooler weather, opt for heavier layers like jackets or thick cardigans. For warmer weather, consider lighter layers like a crochet cardigan, linen jacket, or vest. 

Our favourite option for layering in warmer weather is by pairing a boho dress with the Nomad Vest. The looser and more relaxed pieces, allows you to still add a new dimension to your outfit while still being comfortable in the warmer weather. 

If you're dressing for a formal occasion, consider a dressier jacket or cardigan, such as a velvet blazer or a beaded cardigan. No matter the occasion, layering is a great way to add versatility and style to your boho dress. In addition, it's important to consider your personal style when layering with a boho dress. If you prefer a more polished and put-together look, opt for fitted layers that create a streamlined silhouette. For a more laid-back and bohemian aesthetic, try layering with flowy and loose-fitting pieces such as the Chaima Linen Jacket. No matter your personal style, layering is a great way to add interest and versatility to your boho dress.



Style Tip 3: Choose the Right Footwear to Complement Your Dress

When it comes to styling a boho dress, the right footwear can make all the difference. By choosing the right pair of boots or sandals, you can change the overall look and feel of your outfit.

One way to play with proportions when styling a boho dress is to pair it

with boots or sandals. Both tall boots and sandals can work well with boho dresses, depending on the length of the dress and the desired aesthetic.

Tall boots, such as knee-high or over-the-knee styles, can add a bit of drama and elongate the leg line when paired with a shorter boho dress. However, boho sandals can create a more laid-back and casual look when paired with a boho dress. 

When choosing boots or sandals to pair with a boho dress, there are a few key factors to consider. First, think about the length of the dress – if it's short, opt for ankle boots or sandals with a strappy ankle such as the Soul Searcher Sandals to balance out the proportions. If the boho dress is longer, pairing your dress with sandals such as the Chico Leather Sandal complements the dress to create a laid-back and stylish look. Next, consider the desired aesthetic – do you want a more polished and put-together look or a more laid-back and bohemian vibe? By pairing the right footwear with your boho dress you can create your own stylish and unique look for any occasion.
