The next time you’re in your favorite mall, here’s where to get your boho fix:
The look — soft, feminine, vintage-y, like the poetic. They also sell romantic home decor and unusual gifts, like a vintage rotary phone teleported from the Summer of Love.
Their stuff is available exclusively through their own stores and website.
The look — cool, girly, bohemian. Free People comes from same people who created Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters. They’ve got gorgeous shoes and boots you can’t find anywhere else!
The look — fun, edgy, psychodelic. Lucky truly embraces hippie chic.
Besides their website and retail stores (including Macy’s), you can find Lucky Brand online at Amazon and Zappos.
You won’t find them in the mall, but these brands carry boho all year:
The look — pure hippie chic. They even use the peace sign as their logo. The gorgeous colors and tie-dyes come from founder Dotan Shoham, who formerly owned a dye shop. Gypsy 05 apparel is the new Hollywood darling. They’ve got a “Shop By Celebrity” category that’s a bit in your face, but their stuff is pretty cool.
You can find Gypsy 05 online and in their own boutiques.
The following stores carry boho pieces at certain times, especially summer season:
The look — smart, classy, innovative. Not a dedicated boho designer, but they often throw a few boho-inspired pieces into the summer line.
Nice selection of boho shoes. I love the Daylee Volteri Wedge Gladiators at left — more attitude that flats, but not too high.
The look — youthful, trendy, casual. Short skirts, not maxi, some with boho prints. From their website: “Summer style is effortlessly chic in bohemian-inspired looks. Give your style free reign in charming eyelet, embroidery and embellishment.”
The look — hip, stylish, versatile. Everything from crocheted halter tops to jeans to maxi dresses.
The look — sexy, adventurous, trendsetting. Although not obviously boho, they usually carry a few bohemian luxe pieces.
The look — chic, fun, flattering. They have something for everyone, with an occasional bohemian blouse thrown in. The least “boho” of the retailers, but their stock changes constantly and you could get lucky.
The look — young, retro, eclectic. There’s more than a hint of 1950s kitsch here. Their home furnishings are very boho and surprisingly affordable, like this verdigris velvet fainting couch for $575. The June catalog features “eight painters, writers, stylists, curators, actors and friends shot in their Los Angeles homes,” living the bohemian life.
