When traveling, we can’t fit our entire closet in a suitcase, no matter how hard we try to do so. To help you avoid possible damaged bags and a stressful packing process, we thought we’d make a useful guide with the top 10 boho essentials you need to pack for your next trip.

From head to toe, we’ve got you covered (quite literally), so make sure to read until the end to find out what to bring for a bohemian and Insta-worthy trip. 


1. Crop Tops

A lovely crop top will look cuter than a basic t-shirt whether worn with a maxi skirt, trousers, or shorts. If you don't want to expose your entire stomach, throw on a scarf or pair the crop with high-waisted jeans so it only overlaps. 

At The Young Hippie we love a good knitted crop top, or a granny square crop top. If you like to make things yourself then you should definitely take a look at our t-shirt catalog and crop yours!


2. Maxi Dress

A collection of breezy maxi dresses, the pinnacle of boho style, is a must-have for anybody interested in following the boho trend while traveling. Look for maxis with neutral or muted colors, flowing materials, and subtle patterns like ditsy florals, lovely paisley, or geometric motifs.

Having a dream maxi dress in your suitcase can be a lifesaver for any occasion you have, so definitely keep an eye out for them. 


3. Boho Blouses

The peasant blouse now comes in a plethora of fashionable versions. There's the classic cotton version, which features puffed sleeves, a wide neckline, and intricate embroidery to showcase bohemia's appreciation of handcrafted apparel and jewelry. 

Then there's the modern-day version, which usually consists of a printed blouse with a billowy fit and tassel ties. With flared jeans and wedge heels or a flowy maxi skirt, one of these peasant blouse variations looks great.


4. Textured Jackets & Vests

Faux fur vests or shearling jackets will look great with your airy bohemian dresses and folksy embroidered blouses. These warm outerwear pieces add texture and layers to your ensemble. For a realistic aesthetic, stick to earth-inspired tones like dark browns, beiges, taupes, and creams.

We have an incredible selection of jackets, including faux fur studded coats, vintage-inspired denim jackets as well as suede bomber tassel jackets. 


5. Relaxed Bottoms

A pair of loose trousers, in addition to baggy jeans and patterned corduroy pants, is a great complement to your boho collection. In this example, "relaxed" might refer to anything from harem pants (which are loose across the leg but tight at the ankle) to wide-leg trousers (which are one of the season's biggest trends). Consider fluid and airy styles that allow for plenty of movement and no confinement.

From high-waisted flare jeans to corduroy bottoms, we have every style of pants you need to have in your suitcase for your upcoming trip. 


6. Maxi Skirts

In your urban-boho style wardrobe (and suitcase), a floor-sweeping skirt that embodies your free spirit will also go a long way. This flexible garment may be styled in a variety of ways and worn in any season. To achieve a modern boho vibe, pair your maxi skirt with a crochet top, semi-sheer kimono, or drapey cardigan, or rent a matching top for a sleek, cohesive look.

Our maxi skirt with slip collection is to die for, and we encourage you to take a look and plan your outfits for a unique and Insta-worthy trip. 


7. Boho Kimonos

Boho style luminaries favored kimonos, which were known for their loose, unstructured design and voluminous sleeves during the heyday of fashion. This trendy garment is making a comeback in the form of floral robes and silk tunic tops. 

The flowing Japanese-inspired design adds drama to your boho aesthetic while remaining very uncomplicated, especially when worn over a simple T-shirt and faded jeans. Our kimono collection features one-of-a-kind pieces like granny square boho kimonos, boho fur coats, and oversized floral kimonos. 


8. Anything With Fringe

Fringe first gained popularity in the 1920s as part of the flapper's outfit, before going in and out of style in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1990s. Last fall, there was a startling resurgence of playful tassel detailing. Leather skirts, kick flare jeans, handbags, and jewelry all featured this detail. Wearing fringe doesn't have to make you feel like you've stepped out of a Western movie. For an easy, daily look, wear a fringe-trim jacket with a pair of basic trousers.

If you’re more drawn to fringe accessories then you should definitely pack some flat fringe boots and a classic Western-inspired tassel bag. 


9. Boho Jewelry

While a flower crown is the ultimate bohemian adornment, earthy jewelry is the next best thing. Look for pieces fashioned from natural materials such as feathers, coral, wood, and turquoise. 

We have an extensive collection of boho jewelry featuring geo bracelet sets, boho wrap bracelets with natural stones, feather necklaces, and peace sign earrings, among many other incredible items. 


10. Cardigans

These are versatile layering pieces that may be worn in the fall, winter, and spring. Another amazing feature of this item is that you can get a nice variation of it at practically any of your favorite stores.


Our bestseller granny square cardigan is everything you need in a suitcase to look stylish, boho, and comfy all at the same time. Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?
