Ah, boho. Has there ever been a more divisive fashion trend? The hippyish dressing style by nature is whimsical and cool, and yet, there lies a certain air of effortlessness – the defining characteristic of a boho girl is that she wouldn't dream of trying too hard.

A classic boho outfit is composed of an eclectic mix of borrowed, vintage and collected-over-time pieces that are each individually interesting, but somehow work harmoniously and exude a gentle rebellious spirit.

The boho trend, deriving from the word bohemian, skyrocketed in the mid 2000s – although the style actually harks back to much earlier.

Sienna Miller and her hippy-chic Glastonbury outfits revolutionised festival fashion culture. When she stepped out at Worthy Farm in 2004 dressed in a studded belt, a frayed-hem skirt and rustic jewellery she was transformed into something of a bohemian style icon.

Another key player is supermodel Kate Moss who was often partial to a whimsical, romantic maxi dress. The day before her wedding to Jamie Hince in 2011, Kate opted for the most ravishing minty blue renaissance dress that she styled with turquoise suede boots – and this beautifully bohemian fashion moment has been stuck in our minds ever since.
