I know they're all originated from the 1960's styles!

Hippie can be colorful and flowery, but also has roots in rock n roll, psychedelics, and counterculture. It's a very political style. Much inspiration is taken from non-Western style clothing, especially from Africa, India, or Latin America. I know when people think of hippies, they think of flowers and peace signs and bell bottoms and stuff like that, but it's more diverse than that. Much fashion from the 60s and 70s (in America at least) could be considered hippie.

Boho/bohemian/"gypsy", on the other hand, doesn't have the kind of political/countercultural background that the hippie culture does. It's mainly a European creation, which is why it's named after a region in Czechia and is associated with "gypsies" or the Romani people. So I think being a hippie is usually a political statement, while being bohemian is more like an art style. Hippie is a movement, bohemian is a lifestyle.

Actual style-wise, yeah I think magic and crystals and occult symbolism is more associated with the bohemian style. And I think I've seen a lot of native American inspiration in boho outfits as well? Like dream catchers and turquoise and arrows and stuff. I wouldn't consider any of that to be hippie stuff.

What about fashion diversity again? Trying to figure who has the more diverse and more unique fashion(clothing) styles, the hippies or the Boho/gypsies?
