I’m a sucker for Bohemian style dresses not because I’m a hippie at heart but because I relate to the vibe. Also, being a hippie is directly proportional to boho, but boho is not necessarily hippie. This style blurred all geographical boundaries and welded cultures as far as fashion is concerned. I can go on about this all night! I’ll simply let you go and explore the boho world. Remember to drop a message in the comment section about your favorite boho style piece.
At its foundation, the bohemian lifestyle is truly what inspires White Bohemian to deliver the collection of brands that we do. Not only do we offer contemporary bohemian clothing, but we also offer a charming selection of boho bags. Wear your boho bags whilst sailing across the oceans of Bali in a kimono and a swimsuit, or team with a bodysuit and denim cut offs whilst skipping your way through a festival.
^ David Profumo (2006) Bringing the House Down. In contrast to Vadim, who had not turned twenty, Allégret (1900–73) was in middle age when he directed Hobson. He had been married to the daughter of the editor of French Vogue, who left him after the war for a theatrical agent, André Bernham, taking their daughter with her (ibid). Jeanmaire is probably best remembered through the second line – "And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire" – of Peter Sarstedt's song "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?" (1969) which captured the spirit of Parisian high life in the late 1960s.

Among female Bohemians in the early 20th century, the "gypsy look" was a recurring theme, popularised by, among others, Dorothy "Dorelia" McNeill (1881–1969), muse, lover and second wife of the painter Augustus John (1878–1961), whose full skirts and bright colours gave rise to the so-called "Dorelia look".[41] Katherine Everett, née Olive, a former student of the Slade School of Art in London, has described McNeil's "tight fitting, hand-sewn, canary coloured bodice above a dark gathered flowing skirt, and her hair very black and gleaming, emphasiz[ing] the long silver earrings which were her only adornment".[42]
It is the girls that give the show away - culottes, glossy leather, mini-skirts, boots - driving up in Mini-Coopers ... Rebellious sentiment is more obvious among the boys: long hair, square spectacles, Che Guevara [Cuban revolutionary, died 1967] beards. The picture in Nanterre in May was lots and lots of painted dollies cohabiting with unkempt revolutionaries.[81]
Beatlemania did not of itself create the apparent iconoclasm of the 1960s; however, as one writer put it, "just as Noël Coward and Cole Porter reflected the louche, carefree attitude of the [Nineteen] Twenties, so did the Beatles' music capture the rhythm of breaking free experienced by an entire generation of people growing up in the Sixties".[13] By the middle of the decade, British pop music had stimulated the fashion boom of what Time called “swinging London”.[110] Associated initially with such "mod" designs as Quant's mini-skirt, this soon embraced a range of essentially Bohemian styles. These included the military and Victorian fashions popularised by stars who frequented boutiques such as Granny Takes a Trip, the "fusion of fashion, art and lifestyle" opened by Nigel Waymouth in the King's Road, Chelsea in January 1966,[111] and, by 1967, the hippie look largely imported from America (although, as noted, London stores such as Biba had, for some time, displayed dresses that drew on Pre-Raphaelite imagery[112]). The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards, whose early girl friend, Linda Keith, had, in her late teens, been a bohemian force in West Hampstead, noted on the Stones' return from an American tour in 1967 how quickly hippiedom had transformed the London scene.[113]
^ Quoted in Halliwell's Filmgoer's Companion (10th ed. 1993) edited by John Walker. Almost 70 years after Lombard's death, the Sunday Times described red lipstick as the "ne plus ultra [not further beyond] of make up ... We respect red lipstick as a badge of loveliness and youth (Georgia May), bold style (Florence Welch), sexual confidence (Scarlett Johansson) and old-school glamour (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) – and, above all, we appreciate that it doesn't work for everyone": Shane Watson in Style, 4 December 2011.

John Lennon's wife Cynthia recalled that Kirchherr was fascinated by the Beatles' "teddy-boy style", but that they, in turn, were "bowled over by her hip black clothes, her avant garde way of life, her photography and her sense of style".[103] As a result the group acquired black leather jackets, as well as fringed hairstyles that were the prototype of the "mop-top" cuts associated with "Beatlemania" in 1963-4.[104] The latter coincided with the revival of the bobbed style for women, promoted in London by hairdresser Vidal Sassoon,[105] initially for actress Nancy Kwan, and adopted by, among others, singers Cilla Black,[106] Billie Davis and, in America, Bev Bivens of We Five and Tammi Terrell, fashion designers Mary Quant and Jean Muir, American actress Barbara Feldon in the TV series Get Smart, and, in the form of a longer bob, Cathy McGowan, who presented the influential British TV pop music show, Ready Steady Go! (1963-6).[107] However, when longer blonde hair (associated with, among many others, Julie Christie, Samantha Juste, Judy Geeson and a fashion model named Lorna McDonald, who, at the end of each edition of the BBC's Dee Time, jumped into Simon Dee's open E-type Jaguar[108]) came to typify the "sixties" look, advertisers turned to the Bohemian world for inspiration: through its use of herbs, Sunsilk shampoo was said to have "stolen something from the gypsies".[109]
