The bohemian dress: we owe it to the rich gypsy and hippie cultures of the mid 20th century for that beautiful garment. If it hadn’t been for those rebellious and nature loving people who saw to it that their freedom is not compromised, we wouldn’t have such an amazing silhouette to play around with.
Ever since the garment came into the fashion scene, we have been seeing a number of different versions of the same in mini, midi, and maxi lengths. Given how flowy, breezy and beautiful the silhouette is, we all know that the garment shouts spring and summer in every way. For the same reason, it is time to invest in a new version of the bohemian dress this season.
Now if you’re in the dark about what style to go for, here’s a quick little guide on some of the most trending ones.

As the name suggests, this style is inspired by the endless desert. As you may have guessed, the colors are mostly warm beiges and nudes; think of the ever so light and flowing desert sand. Both in terms of color and character, the sand comes through. Other shades of neutral are also used in this style.
The fit is, of course, loose and as for the elements, there’s everything from ruffles to smocks to tassels and top stitches. The length is mostly maxi or calf length and needless to say, the look is gorgeous.
The exotic wanderer look is of course inspired by the colors and patterns of different countries and cultures. A lot of bold colors are used in a variety of designs.
But the fit, unlike the Sahara Princess, is snugger. This style looks flattering and feminine, put together with paraphernalia like ruffles and laces. Prints do play an important role in this style and yet again, the length is mostly maxi.
This style is indeed for the wild hearts. The name says it all; the wild animal tamer is all about gorgeous animal prints. From cheetahs to leopards to tigers or snakes, you name it; there is not one that a boho dress cannot carry off.
There are no limits for colors here, if there are wild animals on your dress then you can have the wildest colors too.
Here’s a little tip though, being an all-over print, it is always best to break the monotony with a little skin show here and there. Perhaps off-shoulders or noodle straps or a thigh-high slit should do the trick.
The vintage lover is a style inspired by the conventional and classic floral print. It goes without saying that the color and design possibilities are endless here. This one too involves an all-over pattern, accompanied by the quintessential ruffles that have come to be synonymous with the boho-chic look.
The fit can be both loose-fitting and form-fitting because for an all-over print it doesn’t really matter.
Keeping both the skirt and the sleeves flowing with a cinched waist can perhaps be the most flattering look in this style.
