BOHEMIAN FASHION STYLE

Bohemian Fashion Style

Bohemian is a fashion style strongly influenced by hippie and gypsy fashion, which features natural fabrics, loose and flared fits, medieval-inspired designs, neutral & earthy shades, hand embroideries  and statement accessories. The origin of Bohemian style is strongly correlated with the bohemians, a counterculture that appeared in France after the French Revolution.

Boho-Chic (elevated bohemian, urban hippie) is a style of fashion drawing on various bohemian and hippie influences, combination of boho/hippie/voluminous/soft and classic/basic/form-fitted/structured elements (such as structured leather jacket with flouncy maxi bohemian print dress and sneakers ) . This is a fashion fusion that takes the classic bohemian look to a more sophisticated level. The trend was associated in late 2005 particularly with actress Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, Olsen Twins.
