Hi There..... Are you interested in the Fall/Winter trends for this year?
Vogue Paris says that the winter mantra is an allure of outside-the-box, timeless style. It comes in a mix of all kinds of trends, from romanticism and darkness and bohemian and bourgeoisie to sexy charms and extra volume. They say you can adapt it to your personality and pick exactly what suits you from here and there to construct your style.
Sounds like fun to me if you can do whatever you want. 😁
One of those styles that’s on the rise is Bohemian chic. They highlight this style with intricate embroidery and rich fabrics.
I read on Wikipedia that many elements of this bohemian-chic style became popular in the late 1960s and some date even back much further to the mid-late-19th century. It became even more popular after Sienna Miller, a British American actress, her appearance at the Glastonbury Festival in 2004.
A Bohemian is an original inhabitant of Bohemia, the western part of Czechia. It’s the French word for the gypsies in France who claimed to be from Bohemia. This is the way it became the name for Roma or Gypsies in France.
That is how I most remember it as Gypsies. When I was a young girl, I remember there were always gypsies camping in the meadow outside the village. They were very poor and looked shabby and anything but clean. People always taught us to avoid them because they were thieves. I can’t say if those were rumors or if it was true because I was too young. 😇
Maybe the biggest problem was that they had their own culture and lifestyle and did not conform to our norms and cultures. They were against materialism and their highest priority was freedom, individualism, and creativity. So maybe that’s why the majority did not accept them. As far as I know, their kids didn’t go to school either, so there was nothing they had in common with the people from our town. 😯
The Bohemian style of today looks a lot similar to the traditional gypsy style costumes. The long wide skirts with many prints and colors, wide shirts and cardigans, ponchos, large and lots of jewelry with stones, feathers, beads, symbols, and leather. Everything is possible and allowed in this Boho-chic style as long as it makes you feel beautiful. 😃
I asked some other Fashion Bloggers if they had some fall outfit’s that I could share with you. I am always interested to see what others are wearing, aren’t you? 😉
