We’re loving the return of the boho trend. Just in time for summer, we’ve gathered our favorite floaty dresses. During those hot days, these dresses are perfect for looking cute without feeling like you’re wearing a tent. No matter what occasion you’re planning, there’s a style to suit you. No matter what you’re looking for, we have what you need.
One of the best boho dresses is the perfect expression of carefree style. This whimsical staple has transcended trend categories to become a perennial favorite thanks to its fluid silhouette and earthy color palette. You can see how expressive they can be when you observe the fashion icons who wear them -Stevie Nicks, Anita Pallenberg, Janis Joplin, and Bianca Jagger. There are countless riffs on this classic for the summer season, even though boho dresses are available all year round.
Zimmermann, Ulla Johnson, and Isabel Marant, among others, were among the brands showing up in full force for 2022. Paisley prints, micro florals, and patchwork dominate the top options, as do tassels and voluminous sleeves (as do free-flowing minis and relaxed maxis). Find 25 boho dresses that strike the perfect balance between effortless and chic.
