Insight Into the Boho Chic Look: Must Have Jewelry

by jj@d

Nowadays the boho chic look is one of the most popular fashion trend among youngsters, but not many are aware about the history of the whole bohemian, hippie concept. All begun with the ‘Summer of Love’ phenomenon during the summer or 1967, when hippies gathered in San Francisco and protested against the Cold War America and rejected the values of the modern life and embraced the alternative lifestyle, free love and gender equality. From this free thinking and hippie lifestyle evolved later what we call nowadays bohemian fashion. In our days, when we say boho chic perhaps festival style comes into my mind instantly. The reason why the boho chic look is so popular among young girls, can root back to the original concept of the hippie lifestyle: to live freely without expectations, sexual freedom and embrace the alternative lifestyle (see sustainability, eco friendly living and fashion, vegetarianism and veganism). Behind the lifestyle, perhaps the fashion side is what youngsters are mostly interested about. The whole gist of this fashion trend is the freedom of wearing clothes effortlessly. Maxi skirts, fringe skirt and tops, hats, sandals and ankle boots are the staples of the boho chic look. And jewelry. Lot of them. To look effortlessly bohemian this summer, next to your favorite bohemian inspired clothes, jewelry are must have for this trend. As the boho chic is about living freely, without caring about other people’ opinion on our lives, expect more jewelry than one would usually wear, expect earthy tones and lots of gemstones and accessories.
