Creativity, freedom and joie de vivre are the main characteristics of the charming Boho Chic style of living. As the name implies, this is about the "bohemian" subculture that emerged in Europe in the mid-18th century. At that time, especially musicians and writers were fascinated by the free, nomadic life of the wandering Roma from Bohemia. Thus they opposed the strict social customs and norms and celebrated the closeness to nature as well as self-sufficiency. As a revival of the boho style came in the late 60s of the 20th century, the Summer of Love. The hippie movement was born.
The hippies have their inspiration mainly from the colorful Bohemian style and celebrate the love and life in absolute freedom. The Boho Chic is like a real phoenix at the beginning of the 90s and then back in trend since 2005. Actresses and models like Sienna Miller and Kate Moss in England and Mary-Kate Olsen in the US are just a few of the best known faces of boho style in fashion and lifestyle.
