Reaching the height of its popularity in 2005, the boho chic style is a retro hippie style that first flourished in the 1960s and evolved over the ensuing decades. The style is characterized by billowy skirts, embroidered tunics, and hobo bags, among other things. While admittedly this style continues to evolve, it has seemed to remain essentially the same. The style is also one that allows a woman to show her feminine side through the clothes she wears.
The characteristic that differentiates the boho chic style from the true bohemian or hippie look is that it is true style. Those donning the boho look are not poor and unable to purchase a trendy upscale wardrobe pieces. Instead, those arrayed in the boho chic style are purchasing pieces to outfit their look from expensive stores with big names. Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, and Anna Sui are just a few of the designers who have featured boho chic styles on the runways for their collections.
