Are hipsters bohemian? I'm sure that this is a controversy. If bohemian is defined as "one who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices, a free spirit, etc.", then wouldn't a hipster be a part of this independent-thinking community? Fashion trends aside, hipsters appear to be young, fresh, deep thinkers who question traditional rules in a very intellectual way. Boho and hipster subcultures seem to overlap with quirky glasses, ditsy prints, scarves, hats, boots and many other things. The fashion spread by Avalon McKenzie @ Lashes & Bones is a wonderful example of the fashion overlap as many would consider her layout hipster or boho. Some people like to consider boho as purely the Nicole Richie style and others look to boho as somewhat a Stevie Nicks gypsy style. My thought is that pure bohemian is a compilation of every fashion trend as long as one is above or outside the norm, thinking for themselves, and confident to express themselves independent of social stigmas or rules. That is why, here at BohoCircus, you will see steampunk, punk, hipster, beatnik, gypsy, hippie, rock, Japanese street fashion, boho, etc. Anything that is eclectic, unusual, quirky, gutsy and/or creative! Any thoughts?
