Boho Winter Outfits: How to Wear Boho Style in Winter

Wondering how to wear boho style in winter? You can wear your favorite bohemian dresses all year, even when the winter chill sets in. To style your boho winter outfits, you’ll need to add a few base layers for warmth and style, chic outwear, comfortable shoes and fun accessories to rock your boho style all year long.

When temperatures drop, it can be tempting to swap your boho dresses and sandals for bulky sweaters and boots. The key to staying warm in winter is to layer your bohemian wardrobe. From cozy knitwear to statement accessories, here’s how to embrace boho style this winter.

1. Dress in Layers

The first step in layering your bohemian wardrobe is to start with a base layer. Wear a long-sleeve top or turtleneck with a cute dress or maxi skirt.

2. Add a Cozy Knit for Warmth and Style

Keep it simple and add a long cardigan or sweater over a strappy floral maxi dress. Layering isn’t only about adding more clothes; it’s also about playing with lengths to create dimension. If you don’t want to look too bulky, try mixing patterns or adding a fun statement belt.

Bohemian fashion is all about mixing textures and patterns, so don’t shy away from this when creating your layered look. Try adding a cardigan over your base layer for added texture, or jeans under a maxi dress for extra warmth.
