They make great layering pieces, and are light enough to wear during the fall, winter, and spring.

New York's Greenwich Village, which, since the late 19th century, had attracted many women with feminist or "free love" ideals, 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". 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 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".
The definition of a bohemian is “A socially unconventional person, especially one who is involved in the arts.” In other words? Someone who makes their own rules and finds the beauty in everyday life. A fine idea, but how does it translate into a style of dress? The answer is, with a notion of unconformity that provides a refreshing departure from the modern, minimal and sleek aesthetic of current days. Silhouettes are relaxed and styles made comfortable and casual for the wearer. Patterns and colours are injected in a bold and expressive manner. Fabrics are natural and unfussy. Details carry a vintage charm and accessories are artisanal and aplenty. Still don’t get it? Let us show you.
A bohemian man would be nothing without his accessories. While modern ways of dressing may have taught you that a minimal watch and some sleek sunglasses are all you need, bohemian style rebels against this notion. To really pull off the bohemian look, you’ll have to complete it with accessories. Not only are accessories a reflection of personal style and individualism (something very important to the bohemian culture), they can also add that artisanal feel that’s essential to the style. Choose between a range of accessories, made from natural materials to achieve the look. A simple straw hat, canvas tote bag, patterned scarf and wooden bead bracelet, are all quick, surefire ways of nailing your finishing touches.

It’s hard to say whether she’s a grand synthesis of all the pre-Raphaelite pictures ever made … whether she’s an original or a copy. In either case she’s a wonder. Imagine a tall lean woman in a long dress of some dead purple stuff, guiltless of hoops (or of anything else I should say) with a mass of crisp black hair heaped into great wavy projections on each of her temples … a long neck, without any collar, and in lieu thereof some dozen strings of outlandish beads.

^ 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.

In F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story, Bernice Bobs Her Hair (1920), a young woman who wishes to become a "society vamp" regards the adoption of a bob as a necessary prelude, while Louise Brooks' sexually charged performance as Lulu in G. W. Pabst's film, Pandora's Box (1929), left an enduring image of the style, which has been replicated on screen over the years, most vividly by Cyd Charisse in Singin' in the Rain (1952), Isabelle de Funès as Valentina in Baba Yaga (1973) and Melanie Griffith in Something Wild (1986). It was associated also with many popular singers and actresses in the 1960s and has frequently been evoked by writers and directors, as well as fashion designers, seeking to recapture the hedonsitic or free spirit of the 1920s. For example, Kerry Greenwood's Cocaine Blues (1989) and succeeding novels about Phryne Fisher, a glamorous, but unconventional aristocratic investigator in late twenties Melbourne, Australia, conveyed an image – "five feet two [157.5 centimetres] with eyes of green and black hair cut into a cap" – that was later cultivated stylishly on television by Essie Davis in ABC's Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (2012).
