Boho terminology

image

There are so many different terms for this old (coming back in full force) “boho”-trend. I’ve heard hippie, indian, boho, bohemian, free spirited, and now urban nomad/modern hippie in the latest issue of H&M magazine (Spring 2011).

What would you call it

    Definitely bohemian :) I dressed like this in high school, maybe I need to go back through some of my old clothes.

      I also dressed like this in high school! I think that’s when it last was such a big trend because that’s around the time when Mischa Barton, Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan etc. were dressing very bohemian as a result of Rachel Zoe taking them under her wing (and 24/7 surveillance!)

    There’s a bit of a difference between hippie and boho for me. I think boho is more modern whereas hippie is very flowy and there are no boundaries. I would say Nicole Richie is very boho whereas this is more hippie, in my opinion!

      I’d agree with that. Hippie also rings a little more “70’s” old school boho than bohemian or boho does. Boho or bohemian is more like the modern term for hippie.
