I’ll begin by explaining how I define bohemian: a comfortable but detailed look best preserved by the quality of its accents. A paisley print might be bohemian, but isn’t always – and tie-dye is never actually bohemian. Bohemians appreciate the arts, but still wear leather shoes, and sometimes you will find product in their hair. Sadly, because of the loose fit of bohemian styles, plus size women of my particular size run the risk of making ourselves look frumpy when we’re aiming for elegant. Otherwise, my entire wardrobe at the moment would consist of nothing but boho dresses, high boots and the occasional meanswear piece.
Even so, I love to look – and for women who are below my size 28/29, if you’re inclined and you won’t ruin that skirt by rolling over it with your office chair (yes, I have done this) have at!
I put before you some finds that appeal to my own bohemian heart – many wishes of good fits to you all.
Also, remember: you don’t have to wear it the way you see it in the catalog. That sweater up there? Open, with sleeves scrunched up behind a black dress and a beret? I’d totally do it that way.
