New York's Greenwich Village, which, since the late 19th century, had attracted many women with feminist or "free love" ideals,[84] was a particular magnet for bohemians in the early 1960s. Bob Dylan's girl-friend Suze Rotolo, who appeared with him on the cover of his second album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (1963), recalled that the Village was "where people like me went – people who didn't belong where they came from .. where the writers I was reading and the artists I was looking at had lived or passed through".[85] These "beatniks" (as they came to be known by the late 1950s) were, in many ways, the antecedents of the hippie movement that formed on the West Coast of the USA in the mid-1960s[86] and came to the fore as the first post-war baby-boomers reached the age of majority in the "Summer of Love" of 1967. The Monterey Pop Festival was a major landmark of that year, which was associated with "flowerpower", psychedelia, opposition to the Vietnam war and the inventive music and flowing, colourful fashions of, among others, Jimi Hendrix, the Mamas & the Papas, Jefferson Airplane and the British group, The Beatles, whose album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, is said to have caused the guru of psychedelia, Timothy Leary, to remark that "my work is finished".[87]

By keeping just a few styling tricks in mind, you'll have the boho dress thing down. Since boho bohemian style is all about the detail, you'll want to include plenty of texture when styling your boho dresses. Vegan suede, embroidery, fringe, crochet, pom poms, tassels and faux fur are all key elements that add to your aesthetic in the best way. Global-inspired patterns are also major players in a boho wardrobe-and play well with each other-so mix up your patterns! (I.e.: wear a floral embroidered crossbody over your geo print maxi dress.) You'll want to have a selection of suede ankle boots and tall suede boots on hand to wear with boho dresses-and make sure they've got western-inspired details like topstitching, embroidered accents, and fringe. Don't forget the layering of jewelry to pair with your bohemian dresses: Hammered metals, suede cords, tassels, turquoise, moon and star motifs are essential to nailing the bohemian look. Now, you're ready to be one haute hippie.
