Bohemian fashion style as we know it today often incorporates natural fabrics, retro patterns, and warm shades. But, that's just one angle.
Bohemian style is strongly associated with the Bohemian counterculture that started in France after the French Revolution. During a time of poverty artists and other creative individuals started to wear older clothing to save money and later just to express themselves. The general perception of this era was a style similar to nomadic gypsies who originated in Eastern Europe, in a region called, wait for it...Bohemia.
To better understand the Bohemian style you may want to look into some popular Bohemian fashion influencers of the Early 2000's such as:
- Rachel Zoe
- Nicole Ritchie
- Sienna Miller
- Vanessa Hudgens
- Zoe Kravitz
- Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Free flowing, romantic, sensual, creative, artistic. These are just a few words that come to mind while scanning the examples above. As you can see it's kind of hard to incorrectly embrace this fashion style. Embracing the culture is another story. That may take some practice.
In addition to the tops and bottoms with warm and cold hued color palettes, you also have footwear, jewelry, bags and other accessories that seamlessly add to the overall Bohemian theme. Below are some examples of Bohemian style. If you are really interested in this style you can check this blog post from The Pearl Source Blog. They did a spectacular job covering all aspects.
