Hippie and/or Bohemian Chic
I am so falling in love with that style, you know the style that goes slightly vintage, but is still "clean" and feminine..... I just love it! I am slowly moving into that direction when buying cloths. The style I am going for, is not 100% hippie, it's just really really slightly hippie ; big sunglasses, delicate white headband, big vintage earrings, big hobo bags (not leather though).... ...all these elements kept clean and simple.

What do you think of that style or even (probably) trend ?

Aren't hippie and bohemian two different things?

Bohemian, to me, is essentially black leotard, black skirt, big black glasses.

Hippie would be more colorful and use a lot of patterns (often clashing ) Also macrame, batik and lots of use of beads and wooden fasteners.

Am I being too literal? What do you all think?

good point, Tang. I think they probably are two different things-hadn't thought about it before.

i'd go with your definition of hippie...but i think you're describing a more 'beatnik' look for bohemian...

i think bohemian is an overall term which covers everything from hippie, to beatnik to pirate to gypsy etc...it's less polished and more loose...and not so specific...

that's the way we use the term at work ...anyway...

i consider myself more of a bohemian...
my style includes a little from each of these groups...

Talking of (slightly faux) hippy/beatnik/bohemians a man who's been oft quoted lately comes to mind:

You are right, I was picturing beatnik...
Going by your definition of bohemian (which I like), I guess hippie/bohemian is a style (not two). Kimkhuu, I take back what I said!

I love this trend and have really been getting into it by buying some 60s vintage pieces.

i agree they are both diffent, i think you described hippie weel, but bohemian is just a term used to describe free, artistic people, so i don't knwo if you can put it so litterally as to put it into categorys.

I just need to get huge sunglasses, but I haven't made up my mind yet on which pair I should invest on!

It's hard for me to find vintage earrings I can wear, since I am allergic to almost everything that's not silver or plastic!

I love bohemian chic style, but mixed with more modern sophisticated pieces
