Bohemian and Gypsy style clothing has always been popular in our eye's! Here you will find boho Mini Dresses, Boho Midi Dresses and even Boho Maxi Dresses to suit any style and occasion.  Bohemian fashion is laid back, unconventional and highly expressive. Bohemians are free-spirited and refuse to dress in order to conform. Bohemians are often romantic, with a wanderer like lifestyle, similar to hippies.

Boho is short for 'bohemian' and, in fashion, this style is also known as 'boho chic'. It consists of seemingly effortless and breezy outfits combining bohemian and hippie elements like floral prints, long or tiered dresses, floaty skirts, eclectic patterns, cowboy boots, fringes, and layers. 


What is a Boho Mini Dress A Boho mini dress is a type of dress that is usually above the knee. Our Boho mini dresses come in a range of styles from oversized tunic dresses to form-fitting, flowy and A-line styles. When it comes to Boho Mini Dresses think bright and colourful bohemian patterns, sweet florals & frills or crochet to top it all off.

Style Tip 2: Layer Up For Comfort & Style

Now that we are coming into the cooler months in Australia its time to layer up for comfort and warmth on top of your boho dresses! When it comes to choosing the right layers for your boho dresses, there are some great choices out there. Boho Knit Cardigans are a fantastic choice as the can add depth and colour to any outfit! When winter hits try layering up with a Boho Jacket to add that extra warmth. When you just want a layer for those warmer nights, try adding a detailed vest.

Style Tip 3: Starting from the bottom now we're here!

When it comes to styling your boho dresses we cannot forget the bottom! Make sure when you select your footwear you keep comfort in mind! During Autumn and Winter we love pairing western boho boots with our boho dresses. During the warmer weather we love roman sandals or leather mule slides.


Style Tip 4: Headwear and Boho Hair Styles!

When it comes to boho style we love a wide brim hat and add some braids into our hair for an effortless look!
