Embrace Men's Shoes
Men's shoes are... shoes! Just because they're for men, doesn't mean you can't wear them! If you come across a stellar pair of shoes in the men's department, don't shy away from buying them just because the label says they're for men. Men's shoe sizes run two sizes down from women's so if you wear a women's 9, you'll need a men's size 7.

Swimsuit Covers (kaftans) as Dress or Tunic
Swimsuit covers are clothes too! When worn with jeans or leggings they look amazing! I love wearing bathing suit covers. They're roomy, I don't have to worry about wearing a girdle or even a good bra for that matter. LOL!
 Is your cover up sheer? Wear it over a tank and shorts or a turtleneck and leggings in cooler weather.

Skirt as a Dress
Oh, yes I've done this several times myself. If you have a skirt with an elastic waistband all you have to do is pull it up above your boobs.  You can make the skirt/dress more form-fitting by using a sash or belt around your waist.  Since wearing a strapless bra, or going braless is completely out of the question for me, my bra straps will show. So, I like to wear a bolero or cardigan with my skirt/dress thingy to cover up the straps. Bohemian Fashion tricks. How to dress bohemian. How to dress bohemian. How to dress bohemian in winter.

Repurpose Broken or Unwanted Jewelry
One thing I can't stand to do is throw away broken jewelry and lone earrings. With a few jump rings, a pair of pliers, and a few other components, you can create all new jewelry using bits and pieces from your broken jewelry.
Sometimes turning a broken piece of jewelry into a new piece of jewelry can be as effortless as using a drop of glue. I buy a lot of coin necklaces, and I have a tendency to be a little on the cheap side so I don't invest much money into the quality of the necklaces I buy. They break a lot. But those coins, I keep them. They're great for sewing onto purses, backpacks, and my gypsy costume I wear at Renaissance faires. I also save the beads and from broken necklaces and bracelets. I used to make earrings and sold them on Etsy!

Add Trim
Adding trim is a quick and easy way to transform any garment. Adding tassel or fringe trim to a scarf can make it look more "boho" immediately.  Add pom-pom trim to a plain kaftan or dress for a quick boho transformation. You can even add pom-pom and tassels to sandals to make them a thousand times more fun and colorful. You don't even have to sew the trim on any garments if you don't want. You can use fabric glue or hot glue on harder surfaces like leather and vinyl!
There are all kinds of beautiful trims available, including trims with coins, beaded trim, lace trim, tassels, fringe and everything bohemians love. You can find these trims in Walmart, Amazon, thrift stores anywhere. If you're frugal, take the trim off an old garment that you don't wear anymore before tossing it out.

Layer Skirts
I love laying skirts, especially in the winter time since I'm not very fond of wearing pants. Layering skirts can add more life to your outfit. I like to put longer skirts under dresses that are too short. Be daring and mix and match your patterns, lengths, and textures for added umph!

Shirt Over or Under a Dress
Wearing a shirt over or under a dress is great to do when you're tired of wearing the same dress all the time or if you simply don't like the way the top of the dress looks. Perhaps it fits weird, or has a stain on it; just wear a blouse over it and you've got a completely new outfit made from what you already had. Is it too chilly to wear your favorite sleeveless or strapless dress? Just wear a shirt under it!

  1. Love wearing my lacey swimsuit cover-up over a tank or cami with jeans. I also repurpose jewelry all the time. Can't pass up a good thrift shop buy of old glass beaded necklaces! I'm gonna try layering a bit like you do...I'm not quite brave enough to mix prints...yet!

  3. Hey Hollie,
    I love layering skirts, too. I don't see much of that done. It makes it look like I have multi-layered skirts, but when I simply WEAR them together instead of them being sewn together, it gives me a whole lot of different options. People think I have a lot of clothes (well, I do! lol) But mixing and matching pieces makes for a lot of different outfits. I love styling with pieces instead of having dresses that can be worn only one or two ways. I also love mixing prints. Especially since I started my style blog, I've really grown in my own style. :-D I, too, have worn skirts as dresses. :-)

    I'd love to have you guest post on my blog! diybohemian.com I'm a small startup blog hoping for success. If you get a chance, I'd love to have you pop over and give me some pointers. diybohemian.com diybohemian@gmail.com
