One of the most interesting and timeless clothing styles that has been adopted by many famous women, such as Kate Moss and Nicole Richie, is the boho style look. This is a vintage style of clothing that has deep roots in history and is not just about clothes and accessories. It is based on the ideology and the way of expression that it stands for.

Free spirit, comfort, relaxed mood and carefree, combined with femininity, romance, dynamism and personality lead to what we call boho style. The thoroughly sloppy ensembles of the bohemian era were born from the gypsy culture of Bohemia, an area that now belongs to the Czech Republic. These people lived carefree as nomads and dressed without particularly combining clothes with each other, due to their way of life with frequent travels, carrying all their belongings.

Later, however, the French borrowed the term Bohemia to describe the artists, writers and poets of the French Revolution era for their also nomadic carefree lives. The clothes they wore were old-fashioned and did not fit together. But this created their own unique style of dress, the so-called Bohemian or Boho style.

Although boho clothing is closely associated with the hippie style of the 60's and 70's, in fact boho chic fashion borrows elements from Hippie clothing and combines them with many more clothing subcultures of different eras, such as ethnic style and the vintage.
