dbo:abstract
  • The term "Bohemian" applies to people who live an unconventional lifestyle, often with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic, or literary pursuits. The original "Bohemians" were travellers or refugees from central Europe (hence, the French bohémien, for "gypsy"). Reflecting on the fashion style of "boho-chic" in the early years of the 21st century, the Sunday Times thought it ironic that "fashionable girls wore ruffly floral skirts in the hope of looking bohemian, nomadic, spirited and non-bourgeois", whereas "gypsy girls themselves ... are sexy and delightful precisely because they do not give a hoot for fashion". By contrast, in the late 19th century and first half of the 20th, aspects of Bohemian fashion reflected the lifestyle itself. Bohemian style today encompasses fluid fabrics and feminine silhouettes for women. However, it differs in that it pulls inspiration from the 1960s and 1970s, frequently referencing the attire that concertgoers wore to the original Woodstock music festival. Examples of bohemian style are ikat or paisley blouses paired with cutoff jeans for women, or vintage button-down shirts for men. (en)
