In Iris Murdoch's novel, The Bell (1958), an art student named Dora Greenfield bought "big multi-coloured skirts and jazz records and sandals". However, as Britain emerged from post-war austerity, some Bohemian women found influences from continental Europe, adopting, for example, the "gamine look", with its black jerseys and short, almost boyish hairstyles associated with film actresses Audrey Hepburn (Sabrina, 1954, and as a "Gréco beatnik"[98] in Funny Face, 1957) and Jean Seberg (Bonjour Tristesse, 1957 and A bout de souffle, 1960), as well as the French novelist Françoise Sagan, who, as one critic put it, "was celebrated for the variety of her partners and for driving fast sports cars in bare feet as an example of the free life".[99] In 1961 Fenella Fielding played "a mascara-clad Gréco-alike" in The Rebel with comedian Tony Hancock,[98] while, more recently, Talulah Riley replicated the look for scenes in ITV's 2006 adaptation of Agatha Christie's The Moving Finger,[100] set in 1951.

In modern use, the term "Bohemian" is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives. The adherents of the "Bloomsbury Group", which formed around the Stephen sisters, Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf in the early 20th century, are among the best-known examples. The original "Bohemians" were travellers or refugees from central Europe (hence, the French bohémien, for "gypsy").
At the liberation of Paris in 1944, the American journalist Ernie Pyle observed that the women were all "brightly dressed in white or red blouses and colourful peasant skirts, with flowers in their hair and big flashy earrings."[64] while Lady Diana Cooper, whose husband, Duff Cooper, became British Ambassador to Paris that year, wrote that, during the occupation, Parisienne women had worn "grotesquely large hats hung with flowers and fruits and feathers and ribbons" as well as high carved wooden shoes.[65] However, in contrast to such striking bohemian adornments and subsequently the "New Look" (which itself scandalised some Parisennes), the clothes of the post-war bohemians were predominantly black: when Gréco first performed outside Saint-Germain she affronted some of her audience by wearing "black trousers, her bare feet slipped into golden sandals".[66] In old age she claimed that this style of dress arose from poverty:

In his play Pygmalion (1912) Bernard Shaw unmistakably based the part of Mrs. Higgins on the then elderly Jane Morris. Describing Mrs. Higgins' drawing room, he referred to a portrait of her "when she defied the fashion of her youth in one of the beautiful Rossettian costumes which, when caricatured by people who did not understand, led to the absurdities of popular estheticism [sic] in the eighteen-seventies".[11]
Boho style is known for incorporating many different kinds of fabrics, textures, and details that are uncommon in most modern fashion. Crochet, embroidery, lace and fringe are all details and textures that really shine in the boho style. Because the bohemian style was really born out of an attitude of freedom to be yourself, being boho chic is best achieved by being who you are and loving what you wear. To follow the boho chic "trend" we definitely recommend long flowy maxi skirts, cute crochet crop tops, flat sandals or western inspired boots and as much fun jewelry as you can pile on!

When the weather gets too cold for shorts, bohos turn to two distinct types of trousers to provide them with coverage and style. The first of these trouser types is jeans. Jeans are a wardrobe staple for every gent and bohemians are no exception. To pull off the bohemian look, ensure that your jeans are the appropriate off-duty style. Forego the sharp, dark denim you wear to the office on casual Friday, and opt for a rugged and ripped, light or mid-blue jeans instead. A slim silhouette is best while cuffed legs are optional. While these jeans suit the easy-going nature of bohemian style, pleated trousers create an old-world feel that suits its vintage feel. Wear them slightly baggy in the leg and belted at the waist to complete the style.
Slouchy, distressed booties seem to be boho girls Mary-Kate Olsen and Vanessa Hudgens' staples. I prefer styles that are loose around the ankles, so they're perfect for wearing with both shorter skirts and tucking into skinny jeans. It's up to you whether you want a heel or not, but make sure the heel isn't too high or skinny so your boots will stay comfortable while watching concerts or walking to class.

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.
