What is Bohemian Style?

Bohemian Style isn't just your ordinary fashion trend, but a culture. With its own history and an established ideology. While it can be connected with the hippie trends of the 60s and 70s, these days, bohemian fashion is part of the mainstream culture. The fact of the matter is, bohemian fashion trends started out as a counterculture during the 19th century. Today, the wide variety of boho clothing and accessories make the style a phenomenon, one that follows the lines of effortless, relaxed fashion, with its loose-fitted clothing items, casual accessories and overall artistic, creative mishmash of elements.      

Fun Facts:

  • Bohémien was a common term describing (often in a pejorative way) the Romani or “Gypsy” population of France, who originated in northern India and arrived in Mid-West Asia and Europe around 1,000 years ago. 
  • The first mention of the Bohemians dates at the end of the 18th century, during the time of the French Revolution, when due to the social and economic climate, artists and creatives alike were forced to a life of poverty. 
  • By 1872, a Bohemian Club in San Francisco was considered the hottest spot for the meetings of established creative elite including journalists and artists.
