Ahhh.. the printed boho dress.. although it may scream ‘resort’, ‘beach’ and ‘festival’, there’s more versatility to this garment than meets the eye.
With a few key styling tweaks your boho dress can be totally appropriate for evening wear! And, let’s be real, boho pieces, like this Hale Bob* printed boho maxi, are waaay too pretty to not be seen when the sun goes down.
Read on for 5 ways to transform a boho dress for evening…
1. Add An Embellished Clutch
Minimalists may be screaming as I say this, but an embellished clutch and a punchy boho print dress are a match made in heaven.
A metallic, jewel or beaded clutch to immediately transform a boho dress for the evening. Opt for a gold or silver piece and match with jewellery to keep it streamlined.
2. Opt For Chunky Boho Jewellery
Speak of the devil, go for big, bold and boho. A boho dress is loud and proud, so you need jewellery that will compliment the vibe, without getting lost in a sea of paisley and florals.
My number one tip is to choose a necklace that sits above the neckline of your boho dress. Too much overlap can look messier than naughties hair extensions.
3. Dress It Up With Nude Heels
The best things come nude, heels included (hahaha). A nude heel with lengthen your legs, without taking the attention away from all that boho goodness up above. Plus, heels are dressy, so they immediately transform up a boho dress for evening.
4. Add A Dark Lip
Not heading home between beach and bar? Enter the dark lip! This vampy hue is all it takes to transform your boho dress from sunshine-drenched days to Summer nights.
Message for your overflowing holiday luggage: you’re welcome.
5. Remember, More is More!
Unlike a little white dress, or a statement lace piece, when it comes to a boho dress, more is more! Bohemian by nature is crazy, out-there and accessory-laden, so don’t be shy to pile on that extra bangle, rock a giant tassel earring or add a septum ring.
