What do gypsies & and cowgirls have in common? A lot more than you’d think…

This Spring Harry’s Boots is bringing the two together with fashion inspiration that’s a little bit country and a little bit Boho chic.

Brief History of Boho Chic Style

Originally inspired by the nomadic gypsies of Europe in the 1800’s, the term Boho is an abbreviation of the term “Bohemian Homeless” (Bohemian is derived from the French bohémien meaning Gypsy).

Boho chic style has been floating in and out of fashion since the mid-to-late 19th century. Its peak was during the hippie revolution, and the modern Boho look we know today is largely influenced by the summer lovin’ sixties.

Classic Western Wear vs. Boho Chic Style

Boho chic clothing mainly consists of floral patterns, flowy shirts and floppy hats. It’s whimsical and romantic. It’s bangles, boots, belts and big-old-sunglasses. It’s dressing with wild abandon. That’s why the term Boho-chic is sort of an oxymoron. It’s fashion that’s anti-fashion. A true bohemian soul doesn’t give a hoot about what they are wearing. They put on whatever feels good.

The same could be said about cowgirls. They wear what they please, and nobody’s going to convince them otherwise. Cowgirls love to ride and live on the wild side. Just like the original bohemians, they too love to wander. The trail is their home.

Women’s western wear is all about being self possessed and confident. It bucks the system that tells ladies they have to be proper, polite or pretty. All a cowgirl truly needs is a great pair of boots, some comfy jeans, and the wide open plains.

It’s no surprise that these two iconic women’s fashion trends overlap sometimes. Right now there’s a resurgence of Western and Boho-chic in women’s wear.That’s why both empowering styles are the inspiration for Harry’s Boots Spring apparel. We’ve got a whole line of dreamy duds for women who march to the beat of their own drum.

If you’re a country gal with an adventurous heart, and wanderlust for days, here’s some must-have items to express your inner Gypsy Cowboy.
