The Fab BoHo Style
THE FABULOUS BOHO STYLE
Bohemian style is a fashion style strongly
related to hippie fashion, in
which natural fabrics, retro patterns, neutrals
and warm shades merge with 70s style
accents and a flair for statement accessories.
Bohemian style is more than just a fashion
trend – it’s an actual culture in its own right,
one that comes with a very specific ideology
and complicated history. While it’s closely
associated with the hippie fashions of the 60s
and 70s, these days, bohemian fashion is
part of the mainstream culture.
Today, the wide variety of boho clothing and
accessories make the style an actual
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.
As a result of celebrity culture, boho style, as well as boho chic, finally achieved mainstream
status in the first decade of the 21st century. With movie stars, singers, models, as well as
famous celebrity designers sporting distressed denim paired with suede, maxis or flouncy
floral dresses and tunics, boho style became an iconic trend in its own right.

patterns and techniques. As a general
rule, bohemian designs incorporate
natural materials in nature-occurring
shades and designs inspired by art and
rustic elements, plus a plethora of ethnic,
folk and floral patterns.
prints and patterns are one of the most typical bohemian elements when it comes to
accessories like handbags, shoes or headwear. From Mexican prints to tribal African
patterns and from ikat to Turkish, Persian or Moroccan details, the range of boho-infused
accessories is gorgeously inspiring.
These days, bohemian style falls on a large and varied spectrum. From fashions reminiscent
of the funky 1970s, loaded with flared sleeves and pants to romantic bohemians, where lace,
braids and prairie silhouettes dominate to the urban-edgy bohemian who sports a city
version of the artsy aesthetic, the range is very diverse. Which type of bohemian are you
