The bohemian style is more than just a fashion trend, it is a true culture in its own right, a culture that comes with a very specific ideology and a complex history. Although it is closely associated with the hippie fashion of the 60s and 70s, nowadays bohemian fashion is part of the mainstream culture. But in fact, bohemian fashion started as a counterculture in the 19th century. Today, the wide variety of Boho clothing and accessories makes it a true phenomenon, a style that follows the lines of effortless, relaxed fashion, with its loose-fitting clothing, casual accessories and its hodgepodge of artistic and creative elements. Fashions labeled as bohemian represent the lifestyle ideology that accompanies them: an alternative to the traditional way of dressing, coupled with an equally alternative, more liberated lifestyle and a social stance against everything from materialism to the constraints of society.
