Keep wearing long skirts and long dresses

Here is the first step of how to dress boho in winter: reuse summer clothes! Do you think long skirts and dresses are just for summer terrace parties? Well, you are wrong! Long skirts and dresses that are not too light look amazing as boho winter clothes. What you need to do is simply wear them with heavy tights or leggings, anyway they are long so no one will notice. We suggest you wear a pair of leather ankle boots, with fringe if you like them. By reusing your summer boho clothing, you will also have the advantage of dressing boho for cheap, plus a boho attitude should all be about reusing and mixing up.

How to dress boho in winter: boho details

If you want to achieve a boho style, you should pay attention to details. While in summer everything is about boho jewellery, the boho winter style calls for heavier, warm elements:

  • Crochet neck warmer: it is not only a comfortable and warm winter item, but it also feels boho chic. For a very bohemian look, make it slightly oversize
  • Boho hats: wide floppy brimmed felt hats replace light hear bands and boho flowers for boho hairstyles
  • Boho hairstyles: check our tutorial
  • Hair bands: wool, thick, wide versions replace simple thin hair bands for a boho winter style. Hair bands are much more wearable than hats if you are looking to dress boho at work, or look boho at school
  • Leather belts: they can be simple or decorated with nice boho patterns
  • Leather bags are a must of boho winter style. Consider wearing a brown leather shoulder bag or cross body bag to dress boho at work. A canvas bag will make the trick if you want to dress boho for school
  • Wool socks: the trend is to wear them long so that they come out of your ankle boots
  • Print tights with tribal signs are the last trend in boho winter style
  • Boho jewellery: remember it should look original. Go to the flea market or make it at home, but it has to look creative, Choose natural materials such as wood. To dress boho chic in winter, you could make some wool jewellery.
