But before that what is boho chic fashion?
Well, it is a female-oriented style statement inspired largely from Bohemian and hippie culture. This fashion had touched heights in 2004-2005. Remember when Sienna Miller was engaged to Jude Law and was frequently seen donning this avatar? Just like their relationship, the trend was short-lived, not to mention only in media glares. This enduring fashion is always on high, provided you pull it off well.
The boho chic look that developed in 1960’s once again became a rage in 2004 and thanks to Sienna Miller who popularized this culture once again, when she appeared in 2004 Glastonbury Festival.
The city of London was hugely influenced by this style and by mid 2005, boho chic has become almost ubiquitous in parts of London and was seen in almost every British high-street fashion boutique. Its aficionados were sometimes referred to as ‘Siennas‘.
Features included “floaty” skirts (notably long white ones), furry gilets, embroidered tunics, cropped jackets, large faux-coin belts, sheepskin (UGG) boots and cowboy boots, baggy cardigans and “hobo bags”. Demand was so great that there were allegations the following year of some sub-contractors’ having used cheap child labor in India for zari embroidery and beading.
