In Marxist philosophy, the bourgeoisie is a social class that banks on capitalism for survival. We fell in love with bourgeois Bohemian looks for Fall and Resort and all of its sumptuousness. Print mix like a boss and add a load of eclecticism with style. Pull these looks off in the office or your favorite socialite setting. Don’t know, don’t care.

Bourgeois Bohemian Accessories

Keep the emphasis on lean, silky fabrics and then let your accessories do some talking. Creating a bourgeois Bohemian look means no detail goes unnoticed. Layer on thick gold lariats over a pussy bow blouse and feel free to leave the bow untied. Belts this season are hailing from the 90s with thick bands and square buckles. Ankle socks and sandals are just another way to layer and structured bags are best. Our personal recommendation is to try these Floral Socks on for size. The subtle pop that they provide will reward those with an eye for subtle details.

Neo-Western Drama

Take a look at this Fall’s ranch style and then trick it out. Suede fringe is like bourgeois Bohemian ticking tape. Stick to a basic color scheme and add an element of color blocking. Accessories should dangle and drape. Keep the style lady-like with silk fabrics and strappy heels. Consider looting your mom’s best vintage keepsakes and mix old with new.

If you’re the type that wears your heart on your sleeve, romantic styles and flowing fabrics should be right up your alley. 70s style has been envisioned and bourgeois Bohemian looks are soft and sleek.

This ensures a cohesive, pulled together outfit that is fresh and fun. Our suggestion is to snag this Farm Rio Melanie Wide-Leg Pants before they’re gone!

The Bold + The Beautiful

As always, details turn any outfit from bleak to chic. Head-to-toe patterns and bomb accessories are paramount to bourgeois Bohemian bliss. Hike up your hems (high-water pants) and sashay away with a neck scarf. Statement earrings and maximalist color schemes ooze upper middle class.

Go Big + Stay Home

Okay, staying in is the new going out. You don’t need a lot of money to enjoy a bourgeois Bohemian wardrobe. Just pile on the glam and dress to impress (yourself). Get lost in the art world for a while and tap into your inner creative genius. The less you dress for others and the more fun you have dressing for yourself will breed confidence and character.
