ITS CALLED BOHEMIAN
Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, involving musical, artistic or literary pursuits, with few permanent ties. Bohemians can be wanderers, adventurers, or vagabonds(wikipedia)
"Bohemian" means "gypsy" in French.
Today artists are generalized into the category of being bohemian...well people may think that the great(and I mean that) Kate Moss made the style famous but after studying this way of life since I was about 14 years old ( yes I'm odd) has really opened my eyes and let me embrace this way of breezy way of life.
Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf are the original Kate Moss' and Olsen twins from the early 20th century. Bohemian girls were classified as unconventional and not so different as what the fashion industry describes them (us) now.."gypsy girls themselves ... are sexy and delightful precisely because they do not give a hoot for fashion" said the Sunday Times. Which is completely true..I feel my sexiest when my hair is down and flowing waves and I have a headband around my head..I also feel sexy knowing that I can go in my closet and pull out an outfit that another girl would look at and say "Why you would like or wear that?" Which I have heard so many times before by less fashionable individuals.But the fact knowing that what I have on is completely different from what that girl across from me has on makes me feel powerful and doesn't all power make us feel sexy ladies? I like feeling that I was more creative than the average girl.
It took me awhile to figure out my personal style..but by going to an art school for high school I was surrounded by so many creative people I couldn't help but embrace my inner bohemian it also helped having a mom that's a true bohemian. Right now bohemian is defiantly becoming more and more accepted, because lets face it some people went overboard when bohemian clothing first became popular in about 2005..just because it's carefree doesn't me you can look like a train wreck even bohemian style needs a little tiny bit of structure.
