Hippie and Bohemian

What is the difference between bohemian and hippie?

This is a question that boggles many minds. The answer is quite simple.

  1. Bohemians are centered around art, and live their lives for nothing but their art. Formed in the early 50’s and 60’s.
  2. Hippies started a love revolution. This ended up revolving more around sex and drugs. Formed in the 60’s and became popular in the early 70’s.

Both are equally valid in the fact that they are free spirited groups of people, but their origins are different.

The fashion styles between the two groups of people are very similar to each other, because they formed at around the same time period. The bohemians usually make their own clothing, though.

var _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-31643325-1’]);
_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]);

(function() {
var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true;
ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
