What is bohemian dress style?
Bohemian style is today often linked to hippie fashion, but in reality, bohemian fashion actually started out as a counterculture back in the 19th century. Bohemian style arose around the ideology that came with it: an alternative, more liberated lifestyle against the norms of society and its constraints. Today’s bohemian style is relaxed, unstructured, whimsical and beautiful – everything CAMILLA stands for.

Your CAMILLA kaftan
A CAMILLA kaftan is more than just a beach cover up; it is an eye-catching, gaze-holding expression of the woman wearing it. Kaftans and Australia in the summer go hand in hand; days beside the water, afternoons that stretch long into the night and through it all, an eye for bold fashion.
Perhaps you’ll be throwing yours over salty skin and damp swimwear at the beach, or slipping it off beside the pool before a dip between cocktails. You may just be wearing it for a night of dancing by the water. A CAMILLA kaftan is the ultimate in relaxed summer wear, the perfect day-to-night dress that will take you from beach to rendez-vous.
If your shoulders love the sun, opt for one with button up or split sleeves. If you adore the feeling of silk grazing your feet, choose a maxi dress. For versatility, you’ll love the wide-neck style that turns into a one-shoulder style. A waistband shows off your figure, while a billowy scarf style embraces utter relaxation.
Beach wear dresses
CAMILLA dresses and kaftans are ideal for beach wear. Their light, silk fabric keeps you cool while protecting you from the sun, their unstructured bohemian style works well over wet swimwear and their luxe designs ensure you remain queen of the beach at all times. Plus, they take you from beach to bar (or wherever you choose to go next) in one gorgeous swish.
How to dress for your body shape
Dressing for your body type is about identifying your shape and knowing what works for the proportions of your body. The most common shapes in women are apple, pear, hourglass, and a rectangle. Apple shapes should define the waist since most of your weight is in your mid section and upper body. Look to dresses with deep v-necks, wrap dresses, shorter skirts. Pears should focus on balancing the upper body with your bigger lower half with printed and detailed bodices, belts and fit and flare styles. Hourglass shapes look great in classic cuts and styles like fitted dresses, sheath dresses and high waisted cuts. Rectangle shapes are proportionate so you can go for bold prints, ruffled tops, asymmetrical cuts, and tiered and peplum styles.
