The difference between boho and hippie?

In the fashion world you often hear that boho style and hippie style are making a comeback on the catwalks and streets. These two tendencies are similar but often confusing. No one is saying this is wrong, but true boho style enthusiasts and true hippie fashionistas see these two styles of clothing very differently.

Speaking of fashion, there are basic things you want to wear and clothes to go with them. These garments basically belong in the category of casual wear. So no one will automatically notice the hippie or bohemian style unless they’re going to a themed party. That’s why some people wear this type of fashion in everyday too.

So where do they get their inspiration from?
And what is the difference between bohemian fashion and hippie fashion?

Boho fashion and hippie style are both ancient styles that emerged in the past and are still enjoying a modern revival. However, they have different origins (both geographical and philosophical).

Hippie fashion is clearly politically motivated. The original hippie, who promoted unisex clothing, bright colours, flared jeans, sandals, long hair, and colourful beaded necklaces, actually opposed the system and promoted some radical ideas. The clothing is a statement in itself, a sign of unity, harmony and belonging to a common purpose and perspective on life.

Originating in many different parts of the world, the boho style is the result of an aesthetic statement, not a political statement. Boho fashion has its roots in part in the hippie movement, but emphasises the particular lifestyle and personality that more and more women are embracing. Far from being unisex, the boho style emphasises femininity, a special kind of decadent sophistication and a wealth of specific boho elements that make every woman stand out from the crowd. Boho fashion, which emphasises the aesthetic rather than the political side of things, has become a timeless, iconic feminine style.

To dress like a boho hippie, you should try the following suggestions.

Hippie clothing from the waist up

  1. Wear comfortable clothing.
  • Buy in boho shops or boho online shops to find comfortable clothes. The original purpose of hippie clothing was to no longer buy what the big companies sell, but to buy clothing that is sustainable.
  • A soothing color palette or a delicate floral dress are perfect for a boho hippie wardrobe.
  • Hippies prefer to make their own clothes. In today’s age, however, there are numerous ways to buy sustainable clothing without having to bother and still own a new boho hippie wardrobe.

2. Choose a loose and comfortable natural top

Regular t-shirts will work if you have other accessories to mix and match, but make sure it’s a faded, old, or a used t-shirt.

For you girls: wear a soft cotton bra. Do not wear underwires or pads. Or wear no bra at all.

However, if you want to let off some steam, there are other options you can try:

  • Beautiful, long-sleeved peasant blouses are particularly popular with hippies because they are flashy and stylish.
  • Batiks can combine beautiful colours and patterns with monotonous outfits add.

3. Try a vest to mix and match.

The vest is the perfect option to combine with other tops. In the 1960s, at the height of the hippie movement, fringed suede vests were a classic for both men and women. There are many things that say “hippie”, but this one screams “hippie”. But any other type of vest should work as well.

4. Choose your jacket type carefully.

Vintage jean jackets are a hippie signature, but there are other options if you want a little more pizzazz. If you have beads, embroidery, or patterned embellishments, choose them. Leather, suede, sheepskin, and even fake fur (if you’re an animal-friendly hippie, stay away from these materials) are also allowed. Some hippies can get their outfit wrong, but even military jackets can be appropriate in some situations. You can tag them with a peaceful slogan to make your intentions clear.

  • In general, you should wear an old jacket. Newer t-shirts can fit into the hippie wardrobe, but newer jackets are difficult to integrate.
  • Hoodies are comfortable but are not generally considered hippie material. You can wear them if you have to, but don’t rely on them.


Hippie clothing from waist to toe

Choose flared jeans.

  • Faded, ripped, or patched jeans work if the rest of the outfit is hippy enough, but the holy grail of hippie pants is none other than denim flare pants.
  • Both men and women can wear them. They are an essential part of hippie clothing culture.
  • Do you have a hard time finding flares in the age of skinny jeans? Here you will find a Collection.
  • Denim, corduroy or patterned trousers work as long as there is a distinct hippie vibe underneath. These can even be a good alternative to the flared jeans.
  • Stick a peace sign patch on the seat of your pants.

Get some denim shorts

Denim shorts also fit into the hippie collection, especially if they are torn. Or even better:
Rehabilitate the old ones by fraying, tearing, and tattering them (although this isn’t strictly necessary).

Seize your opportunities if you are a woman.

There is much more a woman can do with bottoms. Use it! Weather permitting, you have many options. Consider:

Selection of shoes

  1. Choose the right type of sandals or flip-flops.

    Although the hippies liked to go barefoot, they often wore flat sandals.

  • The sandals most associated with hippies are Birkenstocks. They have a cork bottom and a leather upper.
  • Try leather flip flops too. They’re easy to put on and take off and look great with dresses and skirts.

Try on some hippie boots.

You can try on a few boots, especially in colder weather or if you want to spice up your outfit. Hippie boots are usually made of suede or leather and could pass for ankle boots in a pinch.

You should know that many hippies also wear moccasins.

Any type of moccasin will do, but it must be comfortable. Many moccasins have beadwork on some of their shoes.
