|Bohemian Style||Anna Sui|
Bohemian StyleBohemian Style or Boho look has a very eclectic international nomadic feel. Multi-cultural silhouettes, it barrows pieces of clothing from different eras as well as different countries and ties them together for a very unique look.
This style originates from Gypsies, the original nomadic people of Europe. Like all nomadic people, they collected things from different areas they traveled through.
Every generation has their signature look. The bohemian look in America represents the rebellion of the50's, 60's to mid 70's .The artist and outcast embracing different people and ideas.
America saw this look in some form or another explode. This was the baby boomer generation , the generation that gave birth to the Hippies, a generation hell bent on changing the world.
The slogan of this generation was "Make Love Not War". The Vietnam war, Bob Dillon, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, James Brown, Woodstock, the sexual revolution were all here.
Boho is short-slang for bohemian. Boho also has gone through a metamorphosis of its own. It has a simpler feel more relaxed feel. Partly because other unique rebel looks of later generations have come like the rocker or grunge look and partly because American add casualness to pretty much everything they wear.
