Bohemian style is an enduring aesthetic that has stood the test of time. Popularized by the likes of Stevie Nicks, Janice Joplin, and Ali McGraw, this iconic look has roots in the 1960s and still remains relevant today. Characterized by oversized silhouettes, colorful patterns, and intricate details like fringe, feathers, and crochet, bohemian style is more than just a look— it evokes creativity, spontaneity, and a free-spirited approach to life.
Of course, no beatnik-inspired outfit is complete without a bohemian purse. Like peasant tops, flowy dresses, and round sunglasses, bohemian purses have stood the test of time and are still in style today. Case in point: the below bohemian purses from the Latico archive. With tribal lace, stud details, whip stitch trim, and plenty of tassels, each style epitomizes the modern-bohemian aesthetic to a tee.
