Boho Chic has become a fabulous style trend in the modern fashion and interior decor world. The definition of a "bohemian" is an artist or writer, who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices. One who lives a wandering or vagabond lifestyle, like a gypsy. Boho Chic Style is a form of fashion drawing on various bohemian and hippie influences, which dates back into the 60's and was reinvented in fashion and celebrity hype by Sienna Miller/actress and Kate Moss/model in 2005.
The boho fashion trend has grown since then. It has a vintage, colorful, free flowing, organic, detailed & folk inspired vibe. It's a modern fashion attitude and is not only made up of just one piece of clothing. It has become a new style trend and lifestyle.
Stores like Anthropologie, Free People, Calypso, and Urban Outfitters, to name a few, take boho chic to a new level. Designers, like Tory Burch and many others have added touches of boho chic into their fashion lines over the past few years. Decorators love boho style for its colors, textures, wealth of style, and versatility.
You will find the use of many natural elements used in the design of a boho chic apparel and accessories: feathers, raffia, pompoms, tassels, fur, leather, gemstones. All point back to the natural aspect of the trend.
