I think Boho Clothing encourages a free thinking spirit. Just as with the phrase, “you are what you eat”, we are also defined by what we wear. If I wear a fancy suit and tie or a ballroom gown, I will most likely act very professionally. Boho Clothing has its roots in the artist community and the counter-culture movement. As a result, it also will tend to cause the individual to think in an artsy way. It promotes a happy, free sense and perhaps helps break down stereotypes and prejudice created by fads and trends that are so specific. Boho seems like it would fit in with hippies, punks, coffee shop folks, high fashionistas, etc. It’s so versatile, it just seems to fit in everywhere.
Boho is comfortable, reasonably priced, practical, and attractive (usually). This has its social advantages, because it allows us to express ourselves in a way that doesn’t come across as judgmental or snooty. It also doesn’t stimulate social injustice due to dependence upon designer fashions which can only be obtained by the financially elite. As many of the components can be purchased second-hand, it is a very ethical choice as the manufacture of clothing is the largest environmental polluter. If purchasing items new, it is easy to find fair-trade vendors who will ensure that your purchase is humane. Because the style is so long-lasting, you won’t have to replace your entire wardrobe when the fad wears off.
It seems that wearing Boho Clothing will make you feel great in every way. That can’t be said about every fad, style, or trend that comes and goes with time.
