Luxe Grunge (also known as boho-chic or "luxe bohemian" [1]) is a chicer[clarification needed] updated grunge-boho collection; an unkempt approach to wardrobe, popularized by celebrities such as the Olsen twins.

First motivated by Seattle's groundbreaking rock scene in the 1990s – the modern update contains all the mainstays of yesterday’s grunge (flannel, plaid, layers and leg warmers) alongside today’s sophisticated pieces, including capes, shawls and jackets ([www.theitlists.com], Sept 2006). Grunge elements featured strongly in fashion collections in Autumn 2006, including styles referred to "cocktail grunge" and "modern goth".[2]

Lisa Armstrong, fashion editor of the London Times, referred to Patrick Lichfield's iconic 1969 photograph of Talitha Getty on a Marrakesh roof-top as "typif[ying] the luxe bohemian look" [3]

Certain celebrities have been sporting this look, most notably Taylor Momsen.
