People who associate and identify with this particular lifestyle exclusively, and those who merely find such pursuits aesthetically pleasing, both gravitate towards accessories and trimmings that are unique, atmospheric, and call to the wildness within the soul.

↓ 14 – Necklaces
Bohemian jewelry has a wildness to it that ‘normal’ jewelry does not. Sometimes it’s got to do with how the jewelry is made itself, and sometimes, it’s to do with how it has been styled. Either way, it has an undeniable magnetism that is hard to ignore. Like most things, there are two sides to boho jewelry, a traditional side, and a modern twist. It’s the same with necklaces that have a hippie and cool vibe. Let’s take a look at both examples.
Example 1: Traditional Boho Necklace
Traditional bohemian jewelry has several facets. It can be chunky, silver, antique-looking. Or it can be a mix of beads and yarn and turquoise. It’s a long and cheerful necklace that the influencer has styled with her other traditional boho ornaments.
Example 2: Modern Boho Necklace
A pretty arrangement of fine chains and charms, this modern example has a lot to do with layering several pieces. Necklaces such as these don’t typically count as ‘bohemian’ unless the way they are styled vibes with that particular aesthetic. And we have to say that this one does do that but in an elegant and understated way.
↓ 13 – Layering/Chunky Accessorizing
All it will take is a little bit of research, a couple of minutes perusing through Instagram. One of the things that will stick out to you under the ‘Bohemian Accessories/Jewelry’ hashtag is the frequency with which enthusiasts layer up their accessories. Just pick one boho influencer and observe their feed.
Feathers, massive metal bracelets, gigantic stone rings, and an eccentrically shaped necklace combination is just about one of the supreme bohemian styles which can effortlessly bring out the native bohemian girl in you.
As previously stated, the traditional side to these accessories dictates a ‘heavier’ approach to the jewelry, with chunky pieces being paired with more chunky pieces. But, if you’d like to add a touch of modernity to your styling, you can certainly try the layering process with delicate but eccentric pieces.
↓ 12 – Cool Hippie Bags
If you are a crazy fan of glamorous-looking handbags and their ability to make you classier, then you have landed yourself in the right place. Hipster bags have the most delicious visuals. There’s a lot of brown leather, beads and gemstones, and a touch of turquoise. Below is the amazing bag collection of one bohemian enthusiast and Instagram influencer. It’s not hard at all to see why she has an unhealthy obsession with growing her bag collection. We’d kill for any single one of these beauties.
This one has a bit more color to it, but you can see how boisterous and overwhelming it is. Even if you’re not dressed in a boho-chic, we’re sure that just carrying this bag will be enough.

↓ 10 – Woven+Knitted Accessories
First, we told you about the trend of layering up several jewelry pieces or wearing heavy jewelry. One of the other things you’ll notice is very common among boho fashionistas is their penchant for using knitted or woven materials. This isn’t restricted to accessories. Bohemian outfits feature knitted tops, skirts, shirts, ponchos, and much more frequently, and it looks supremely pretty.
People dedicated to having a free-spirited approach to life, whether via dressing or accessorizing or decorating their homes, use woven and knitted fabric. Observe this lady’s headband and the wall-hanging she’s holding.
↓ 9 – Turquoise Accessories
The bohemian culture is obsessed with this color, and this obsession is not even subtle. Whether it’s the jewelry or the clothing, whether it’s subtle or chunky, you’ll see an overwhelming number of styles featuring turquoise. We’re not complaining. It is a great color to represent an entire culture, its fashion choices, and way of life. It’s soothing to look at and embodies the freeness of spirit that defines bohemianism.
Feast your eyes on the most glorious turquoise bohemian rings.
See? Rings, bracelets, necklaces, garments, the color is EVERYWHERE.
↓ 8 – Beaded Accessories
We imagine if you try to DIY bohemian jewelry with the help of tutorials and how-to guides, what you come up with may look like this. Handmade jewelry is exquisitely charming, and the fact that it’s a labor of love shows in every piece that is created. Like others we’ve discussed before, beaded jewelry is one of the constants in bohemian accessories culture. Beads and threads of various colors are braided together in unique formations each time.
There aren’t enough words to describe each and every single one of those unique variations because we have a lot to cover here, but we’re trying to let you see as many different examples of each type of jewelry as we can. See how the beaded jewelry below is vastly different from the one above, wherein they both utilize similar materials.
↓ 7 – Scarves
Scarves are not just for wrapping around necks anymore. There are dozens of uses of scarves, and fashion enthusiasts discover more every day, but when it comes to bohemian styling, here are some ways this accessory is frequently used:
- As Tops: Square scarves are often converted into bandeau tops or strapless bras. You can use narrow scarves as well, but they won’t taper as beautifully as a square one does. Don’t forget to be extra sure you’ve secured the scarf in place.
- As Bandanas: Small kerchiefs or square scarves can be tied as bandanas. They should be in beautiful prints; those look nicer than plain ones. Tie a silk scarf into a bandana at your own peril. It’ll be slippery and super hard to keep in place. Try cotton and linen ones for ease.
- As Headbands: While researching bohemian accessories, we came across the Instagram feed of this particular boho influencer. Her feed felt like a love letter to the country boho-chic aesthetic and featured lots and lots of scarves styled into bandanas and headbands!
↓ 6 – Hipster Belts
Take out your ordinary plain dresses and update them with a vibrant-looking bohemian belt. Below we can see a fabulous bohemian belt with unique items, colors, and shapes surrounding it, which will make you the face of bohemian style during the Coachella festival, the time of the year hipsters from all over the world unite.
Speaking of hipster, check out this uber-fantastic maroon leather belt with cool strips. The buckled belt features silver hardware and, as you can tell, shapes the waist quite nicely. We suggest keeping your clothing minimal and neutral, as the picture shows. However, you should opt for chunky accessories like bracelets, rings, and necklaces with this outfit. For footwear, the most obvious choice are boots, but sandals will look beautiful as well.
↓ 5 – Catchy Armlets and Bracelets
These silver and steel armlets look captivating, don’t they? Armlets and anklets are normally not worn, but hippies can be counted upon to try everything normal people don’t. Number five on our list of cool bohemian accessories are armlets and bracelets. You’ve seen instances of the latter in the pictures above and probably have an idea of the many shapes these bracelets can take. Now feast your eyes on just how magnificent armlets can be. These can be chunky, or they can be delicate. If they are of the latter kind, the best strategy is to layer them up.
For a boho wedding, these armlets will look ravishing.
These are undoubtedly handmade. Handmade gemstone jewelry has been gaining traction lately. You can try out this trend for yourself and see how it suits you.

↓ 4 – Dramatic Rings
Oh, this is our favorite part! Who doesn’t love rings! It’s an accessory that is equally adored by all sexes. Layered rings and hand accessories are the new fashion statement and would go effortlessly with any outfit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but you’ll see the same thing with bohemian rings: they are either super chunky, heavy beauties that take up a lot of space, or they’re delicate-looking lightweight things that are layered up over one another. Knuckle rings come in handy here.
Exhibit A: Oversized and layered.
Exhibit B: Chunkiness all around (check out that turquoise goodness).
Exhibit C: Dainty rings with intricate designs, multiple worn on each finger.
↓ 3 – Extraordinary Earrings
Ears are the only part of your body where accessorizing can take its toll if you’re not careful. Wearing heavy earrings can not only cause pain after a while, but they also cause your earlobes to stretch unnaturally. This is why we suggest opting for big earrings infrequently. Keep 2-3 pieces of this kind, and try to fill your jewelry box with other, lighter kinds of earrings that have a bohemian vibe.
These are absolutely perfect stand-ins for heavy silver earrings. These are big and long, but they are knitted, so you won’t even feel them dangling from your ear. How convenient of an option is that!
↓ 2 – Foot Accessories
We can totally see the bride sporting these exquisite pearl anklets at her boho-themed wedding on the beach. These are super light and comfortable, too, from what we can tell. These can serve as excellent accessories for a day or night on the beach where you can easily forgo footwear.
↓ 1 – Bohemian Footwear
A good portion of the footwear that is identified as ‘bohemian’ features boots. And bless us, what stunning boots they are indeed! We’ve shown only three examples, but it’s quite clear to us that what we’ve seen is barely the tip of the iceberg. Consider these buckled leather beauties:
