Disclaimer: You don’t have to be a street busker or contemporary artist to adopt the bohemian lifestyle. Boho fashion has been around for decades and typically categorizes loose-fitting, flowy silhouettes, vintage floral and patterned prints, hats, and more. It’s an eclectic style worn by artists alike.
Looking to dabble in the bohemian style but not sure where to begin? We’ve got you. Whether you are retiring your business suits for the week or you’re an artist looking to expand your wardrobe, here are a few essentials to have you reaching for your notebook and quill.
Ornate Print Linen
When it comes to boho, a vintage ornate print absolutely nails the vibe. Wear our Ornate Print Linen-Blend Shirt and a black fedora. This ensemble is perfect for hitting up the concert of your fav indie band. Or, if you’re heading to an outdoor festival in the park this summer, this outfit is a great choice.
For a more casual brunch vibe or a beach day with friends, swap out the matching shorts for white Bermuda shorts and wear them with plain black or brown sandals.
These guys can be worn over linen pants, cargo pants, or even chinos. For quintessential boho style, we suggest unbuttoning them halfway. Grab our Reworked Striped Button-Front Shirt and pair it with a cream tank (or no shirt underneath if you’re feelin’ yourself) and cream linen drawstring pants. Our long-haired lads may want to fashion their manes into low man-buns or for our shorter-haired fellas, you may want to opt for a Panama hat to add to the bohemian aesthetic. Consider adding your fav gemstone necklace into the mix as well.
For peak boho, you can’t go wrong with a flannel. Historically speaking, flannels were worn by farmers to stay warm when they were out early in the morning tending to their farms. Nowadays, they have slid into our wardrobes and beyond our front doors as a layer to protect against the cold and stylish addition to our bohemian ‘fits. Our Plaid Flannel Shirt worn over a vintage graphic tee and jeans is the ideal ensemble for our musicians out there who may be heading to a local gig or our writer friends who might be working on their screenplay in a café.
The beauty of the flannel is that it is socially accepted almost everywhere. Throw it on before you head to the farmer’s market or button it up with some black jeans and a belt for a guys’ night out – its versatility makes this one a wardrobe standard.
