When one talks about the hippie fashion, one thing that comes to my mind is Hollywood celebs like the Nicole Richie, Sienna Miller and the Olsen twins. For me, Nicole Richie is the ultimate hippie fashionista. I mean even when she’s preggers, she’s still the most fashionable person on earth. A true boho chic. Sienna Miller is more of a subtle hippie chick. It’s like you can always find a trace of the boho look in her outfits. And the Olsen twins? They’re outrageous (in a good way). Fashion critics would usually turn down the looks of the Olsen twins but I must say “bravo” to them. I love it that they are incorporating bits of Bohemian on their look, every now and then.
Boho is short for Bohemian look. It has its influences on the concept of Bohemian and hippie. Among the fashion hints for boho look are the patchwork, tooled leather, embroidery, paisley and floral prints, home-spun and raw-edged fabrics, fringing, studding, tassel and jewelries that are ornate and layered. It is greatly inspired by the flower child styles of the late 1960’s. Indeed, this fashion tends to capture the look that is free-spirited and earthy. There is an eclectic mix of vintage, ethnic and hippie.
Other Hollywood stars who try very hard to have the hippie look are Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Isabel Lucas. I must say, try it harder girls! Just a tip for all the girls out there, the important accessories to complete that Boho look are the the headbands, suede boots (sometimes), maxi dresses, big boho bags and jewelries that can speak of being free-spirited (meaning it should be gypsie-like and rustic). I think, head gears and jewelries (e.g. necklaces and bracelets) are important elements to get the look of a bohemian princess.
