“Boho Love” is the love of boho fashions. I am not a gypsy, nor a hippie, nor a Bohemian but I did have romances with all three. Those love-ins qualify me as an expert, right?
In those days – the 1960’s & 70’s nobody was out to set fashion statements. One just purchased what the department stores and shops were selling. Who knew that 30-40 years later those bell-bottom jeans would become the epitome of a generation of kids?
Some of the styles hint at eroticism without going there. These lady models have nice figures – no bulbous butts here. It is a fashion sense that seems to have been born of the Internet.
The Gypsy: The original gypsy came from Northern India but are now on all continents. Traditionally, gypsies lived by doing seasonal work and…fortune-telling. They wandered from place to place and had their own style, though, Gypsies of yore never thought about being stylish; they wore what they had. Now their dress has been glorified and modified to sell.
Hippy: Someone who rejects the established culture. Their attire has been glorified in recent years and has become an integral part of the BOHO look.
Bohemian: A vagabond, wanderer or gypsy, a person (such as a writer or an artist) living an unconventional life usually in a colony with others. Well you get the idea and the feel and can certainly see the similarities…..
