Boho vs. hippie: What’s the difference?

Someone who doesn’t conform to generally accepted standards and norms. The boho style has no political origins and instead stems from an aesthetic origin. Bohemians are free-spirited and don’t dress to conform but to please themselves. Also, you don’t need to be rebellious to employ the Bohemian style — you just need to be self-expressive, laid back, and creative. Boho fashion is a means of self-expression and also places a great focus on social and environmental consciousness.


A person who advocates extreme liberalism in politics and lifestyle. Hippie clothing is less about being stylish and more about making a bold political or artistic statement. Hippies thrive on the rejection of the establishment and conservative values. Starting in the early to mid-1960s hippies took it upon themselves to protest everything they thought was wrong in the world. Hippie styles were more about purposefully not fitting into social norms and making a strong anti-establishment statement about how disenfranchised people felt than artistic expression.

Whichever path you choose, live like a free spirit…

    I prefer the boho lifestyle. Hippies lack ambition and seem to be lazy.

      I think it’s more a political thing. It’s hard to reduce stress from your life and remain actively involved in political debate.
