8. William Butler Yeats
Sandymount, County Dublin
William Butler Yeats is hands-down considered one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century. But there's definitely room for him to enter the same consideration in terms of style. Yeats perfected the bohemian writer look that you might see many bloggers trying to obtain today. Whether he was in a corduroy or brushed wool suit, his bowties and pocket square were always perfectly disheveled, giving him an air of shabby intellect. Most people who try to get this look just end up looking messy.
