I. The Origin of Bohemian Style In the first half of the 19th century, a group of young artists lived in the Latin region. They had no high social status, stable jobs, or fixed income, but they were persistent in pursuing art, fearless of power, and free from institutional constraints. Their Bohemian spirit had a significant social impact at the time and influenced a large number of young people. Their spirit was called the "Bohemian Spirit," which pursued freedom and opposed traditional thinking, and it matched the rebellious mentality of young people towards society, and was sought after and imitated by many young people. Thus, the Bohemian art style was formed, and it can be said that the Bohemian art style originated from the "Bohemian Spirit."

Comfort as the Main Goal The Bohemian spirit pursues freedom and nonconformity, and in line with this, the design of Boho dresses emphasizes comfort as the main goal. The typical design patterns for the collars of Bohemian-style clothing are "V" shape, "I" shape, and "U" shape, while the long skirts are mostly in "A" shape. These designs often present a loose and flowing visual beauty, making the upper body feel comfortable. Bohemian-style clothing also pays great attention to the materials used in the clothing. They often use natural materials such as cotton and linen, fur, and generally do not use synthetic materials such as nylon, which ensures the comfort of the clothing.
