Men’s Boho Style Summer 2012
There’s no better way to get handmade and one-of-a-kind style than with boho! This re-emerging look combines amazing colors, interesting architecture, and a relaxed style to create the perfect unique look for any man. Men’s boho style has quickly become one of the leading styles on Etsy.com and many other handmade sites, and men are stepping up to embrace the free-spirited and playful energy that comes from boho jewelry, clothing, color schemes, and accessories.
Many people think that boho style is limited to women. Although they may have started the trend, men quickly got on board! Boho is what happens when the free form style of the 60′s meets the colors, textures, and designs of 2012. Men’s boho style is less concerned with what ‘matches’, and more concerned with what feels good and fits the person’s individuality. The general view of boho style is that it is worn by people who dress for themselves versus dressing for the trends, which is why it’s so popular in handmade and one-of-a-kind communities across the world.
The word ‘boho’ is a shortened for of ‘bohemian’. This word is synonymous with the Roma Gypsy people, and indicates travelers and refugees from Central Europe. Think vibrant Gypsy culture – and you have boho!
Men’s boho translates something like this…
- Loose fitting jewelry, wrap bracelets, and design elements in jewelry that lean towards the natural and organic
- Loose shirts in natural colors that are accented with colorful accessories
- Hair in piecey, messy, long, or ultra-cropped styles
- Unbleached cotton, linen, canvas, and other natural looking pants styles
- 60′s styles mixed in with the overall Gypsy style theme
- Handmade, one-of-a-kind, home altered, and vintage pieces
Embracing the men’s boho style is a great way to combine faded and vintage pieces with more modern jewelry and jeans designs. It can be fun to rifle through your closet, see what feels right, and choose your outfit based more on texture and color than on popular combinations.
