Boho Fashion Style for the Plus-Size Girls: Feel Comfortably Stylish

Boho, or the Bohemian style, is a fashion trend that has long-lasting appeal. Initially, the style was popular among hippie youth, but it evolved to suit any fashion enthusiast. Whether you are a plus-size or an hourglass model searching for unconventional attire to wear at the beach, to a friend’s party, dinner, or even a shopping spree, boho style has your back! You will always feel comfortably stylish when wearing your favorite boho clothing.

Characteristics of Boho Fashion 

Boho trends represent exotic substitutes of typical fashion in a given era. Historians attribute the fashion to intellectuals, artists, and writers. The dress code integrates different clothing styles from across the globe and historical outfits.

The plus size boho dresses are loose and colorful attires (often dubbed aesthetic dresses, boho chic, or hippie style) that make any girl stand out from the crowd.

The boho trend also embraces threadbare fabrics representing a counterculture that portrays a lack of interest in traditions and social structures. The fashion also features themes of poverty and creativity.

Other elements that complement boho fashion include:

  • Layered scarves and jewelry
  • Theater attire
  • Historical fashion trends
  • Loose outer garments and hair that suits plus-size women perfectly

Boho Trend History 

Boho fashion started in France as a counterculture. Following the French Revolution, many artists wallowed into poverty because they lost the sponsorship of wealthy customers. Consequently, the artists lived cheaply and moved from one place to another. Their clothes were old, unfashionable, and worn-out.

The bourgeois classified artists as talented craft artisans. However, the 18th century Romantic Movement emphasized creativity that people mainly expressed in how they dressed.

In many cases, the bohemians often dressed in old shoes and threadbare coats that reflected disheveled people.

Modern Boho Outfits 

Presently, boho fashion is available in diverse silhouettes, cuts, and shapes. You can also pick outfits designed from a broad range of techniques, fabrics, and patterns.

Some of the widely used fabrics include chiffon, cotton, linen, and leather. Some fabrics also feature floral prints, lace, and crochet. The boho outfit cuts and fabric choice depends on whether you are looking for flexible winter or summer fashion.

You can also throw in complementary fashion pieces such as a handbag or even a trendy trench coat. Boho fashion is flexible; therefore, select a dress code that makes you feel great.

How to Pull Off Boho Fashion Trends 

If you dress in an official outfit throughout the week, you must be waiting eagerly for the weekend so that you can have a change. The boho trends have a wide variety of clothes to match the confident and plus-sized girls’ requirements.

When selecting your preferred outfits, however, ensure to follow these conventional boho codes.

  • Choose unstructured, lightweight, and loose style
  • Pick an expressive and relaxed appearance with vintage details
  • Buy from the thrift stores so that you can buy affordable outfits
  • Creases are part of the disheveled fashion, do not bother to iron
  • Remember to throw in some extra accessories
  • Include floral, animal, or another noticeable pattern somewhere

Surefire Accessories to Complement Boho Style 

Modern fashion trends discourage too many accessories. Fashion gurus recommend that plus-size girls can wear a diamond bracelet or watch, and a pair of sunglasses only.

On the contrary, the bohemian culture encourages you to select a wide variety of accessories (after all, vintage and artisanal items are available in dollar stores).

Some of the accessories to consider include:

  • Oversized sunglasses
  • A straw hat
  • Patterned scarf
  • Canvas tote bag
  • Wooden bead bracelet

Boho Shoe Styles 

Once you pick the clothes and accessories, choose shoes that will enhance your fashion statement. Remember, comfort and safety should be your primary concern. Some of the popular boho shoe designs include:

  • Ankle boots with a buckle
  • Patterned flat sandals
  • High heels ankle boots
  • Flat summer sandals with beaded straps
  • Gladiator sandals with sexy lace-up
  • Beach flip flops
  • Fur boots
  • Riveted peep toe high heels
  • Vintage slip-on boots
  • Wedge platforms

Boho is almost an attitude. It is wearing what you like and pulling it together until you get the right vibe. Feel good, girls. Enjoy your boho fashion craze. You deserve some happiness.

Victoria Beckham X Target Collection | Review

Target is known for providing its customers with affordable fashion.  The discount retailer has made collaborations with various clothing designers and the recent in-store collection was Victoria Beckham for Target.

Victoria Beckham is a sought after businesswoman and fashion designer.  She’s known for her sophisticated and minimalistic style.  What’s really interesting about Victoria is that she was introduced as a Spice Girl and can be seen with her kids carrying a Hermes handbag.

Victoria Beckham X Target Collection Review:

In true blogger fashion I wanted to view the collection for myself.  I must admit that Target is meticulous about placing their top-selling brands near the front of the store.  The retailer in my region displayed the One-Shoulder Dress, Mint Green Lace Bomber, and Collared Dress.  Every item was well categorized; placing the activity books and kids apparel near the designer collection.

From viewing the collection (in-store) each piece was well-made and used quality fabrics.  There were no deformities in terms of darts, zippers and stitching.  The patterns were perfect for the season with florals and scallops.

I have one suggestion that clothing pieces are created for petite sizing such as sleeves, hems, and pants length. Also, some of the items were above Target pricing. For example, the Bug Bomber Jacket was $70.00 and Cali Lily Top/Pants (purchased together) was $70.00 and above.

Special thank you to Victoria Beckham and Target for showcasing diverse models.  The collection also provided pieces in the plus size department.

“A major look of the evening was floral,” shared Denise. “It’s one of my favorite key trends of the season! It’s refreshing and also a mood booster. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. My favorite slimming style tip is to wear mixed colors like shades of purple, navy, cobalt and pastel blues together that have the same base tone.  FTF is a great spot.  I always leave feeling confident.”

Fashion Tips and Style Inspiration for Curvy Women

I am a petite woman with CURVES which makes me a STRONG believer that anyone can look great (no matter what size clothing you wear.)  This is my personal belief because I am the shopper who’s searching for a specific “size”  (in pants) but yet they have to be short enough for my height!

With that being said, I have discovered over the years that it’s truly not about the size clothing you wear but how you style your wardrobe.  And although there are certain items that are ONLY reserved for women who wear a size zero, our fashion industry’s so diverse that no one should resort to (ONLY) wearing leggings and a Mickey Mouse t – shirt (smile.)

Lucky for us, Marie Claire magazine has provided some great style tips for Curvy Women.   The article ranges from accessories, formal gowns, and hair tips.  Isn’t it wonderful to know that we can look good and feel great no matter what size clothing we wear!
