How To Choose The Best Bohemian Pants

by Austin McIntosh on Oct 20, 2017

Also known as boho, Bohemian is a style generally consisting of loose, vibrant clothing and is often associated with artists, travellers and free spirits. To achieve a complete bohemian look there are certain fashion pieces every boho wardrobe must have: a great maxi skirt, distressed ankle boots or gladiator sandals, a leather headband, a floppy brimmed hat, big sunglasses, chunky earthy jewellery, flared jeans, and the pièce de résistance: a pair of bohemian pants. (Along with a bold, curious and carefree attitude towards life!)

Bohemian pants are not for the faint-hearted. They can be particularly flamboyant. But if you are willing to make a statement and turn heads, then these pants are just what you need. Or if you don't really care what people think about your wardrobe, you just like feeling confident and comfortable, these pants are perfect for you. Another great bonus to these pants? Whether you are pear-shaped or straight, hourglass or petite, you can rest assured that you’ll easily find a great pair of bohemian pants to suit you. How? Simple, bohemian pants suit all body shapes! Making you look good and feel great.

Are you a more curvaceous lady? Do you boast an impressive booty? Great news, the most common bohemian pants are wide-legged, which are fantastic for elongating hourglass or pear-shaped silhouettes. Monochrome boho pants work wonders by creating one long, lean, continuous line and can be accessorised for a fun pop of colour. Who says you can't wear boho to the office? Team these beauties up with a blazer and some heeled sandals and you're ready to conquer that board meeting. If you’re after a pattern though, just be aware that some patterns can exaggerate curves.

Are you petite? More of a ruler than an hourglass? Bohemian pants are typically loose from the crotch all the way to the ankles, with a wide waistband that can either be elastic or a handy drawstring that ties over an elastic waistline. This is a fantastic fashion trend for adding shape to slim silhouette. Accentuating this waistband adds shape to your figure and the bright bohemian colours with bold prints and details are flattering staples when you are looking to create volume. Want to take your boho look out on the town? Pair your high-waisted bohemian pants with your favourite wedges, a cropped off-the-shoulder top and a bright lipstick and get ready to dance the night away!

One size doesn’t necessarily fit all so here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your bohemian pants: the cut of the leg as well as the measurement between the crotch and the top of the waistband. Knowing these two measurements will guide you towards finding your new favourite pants.  

If you think this bohemian look is for you, there is no arguing that you will be spoilt for choice with the plethora of bohemian pants designs and patterns on the market today. Imagine rocking a cute pair of boho pants with a cropped tee or cami, retro sunnies, a large floppy brimmed hat, gladiator sandals and an oversized bag for your next trip to the beach or to a summer festival? Effortlessly chic, feminine and comfortable.
