What Is "boho"?

"Boho," or "bohemian," is a casual, chic style that blends elements of vintage/retro, hippie and other light and natural styles. Though boho styles are distinct, each is entirely unique according to the wearer or designer.

The boho look includes light, natural fabrics and fibers for an overall casual look. Though individual articles of clothing and jewelry may be marketed as boho, the layered and complex wardrobe defines the style. Each individual must choose elements that fit her own personality, preferences, body shape and complexion. It draws inspiration from hippie culture and various style eras, particularly the '50s through the '70s, because of the widely varied and nature-centric fashion ideals of the time.
