Boho Isn't Just For Summer! Try These Winter Style Tricks

Thursday, November 17, 2016

Year after year the boho trend continues to be worn by women of all ages. This is not hard to see why. From intricate floral patterns to long flowing fabric, it’s a look that is both chic and comfortable. It’s versatility also means it can be worn for either formal events or casual, relaxed evenings. However, the boho look is often one associated with summer. It’s loose silhouettes are perfect for staying cool during hot weather. But just because it’s now winter doesn’t mean you have to banish your boho clothes to the back of your wardrobe. Here are some style tricks you can use to help you immerse yourself in the boho trend even when it’s cold outside.

Wear tights

No boho wardrobe would be complete without a maxi dress or skirt. These floor-length pieces are crucial for creating the laid-back but luxurious feel the boho look has become known for. But maxi dresses and skirts aren’t the warmest of items to wear during the winter months. Thankfully, there is a simple solution. Wearing thick tights under your skirt and dresses is a fashion hack that can keep you looking boho all winter long. Look for the highest denier tights at your local fashion mall to get as much warmth as you can. For an extra fashionable look, match your tights to the colours on your skirt or dress. For instance, if there is navy in the pattern of your maxi dress, buy navy tights to match. So if anyone does see your legs, your overall look will still be cohesive.

Swap sandals for boots

Sandals work extremely well with the summer boho look but aren’t as practical during the winter. Nobody wants their feet to get cold and wet when they are on the way to work or to meet friends. So store your sandals away till next spring and opt for boots instead. Chunky boots with buckles such as motorcycle or combat boots are often the best option. This is because they create a strong contrast between the delicate fabrics of your boho clothing. Head to your nearest shoe store to try on different styles until you find the perfect pair.

Layering is key

Layering is one of the best ways of keeping warm during cold weather. But it can also help you transition your summer boho look into a winter one too. You can layer a thick knitted jumper over your favourite maxi skirt or dress. Fur gilets and ponchos are also essential layering items that can be worn over trousers, dresses, and skirts. You can find these from most boho and hippy clothing stores online, particularly during this time of year. Look for layered pieces which will work with multiple items in your boho wardrobe. You can also wear oversized printed scarves over your boho staples for added warmth and style.

As you can see, you can easily wear boho clothing all year round and not just in summer. You don’t have to sacrifice feeling warm and comfortable either. So take what you have learned and be a winter boho queen.
