From Baidu Baike:

风尘是一个汉语词汇,拼音是fēng chén,比喻旅途的艰辛劳累;或比喻纷乱的社会或漂泊江湖的境况;旧指娼妓生涯,出自杜甫《赠别贺兰铦》。

The development of meaning is along the line of:

Literal wind and dust -> trek -> the life of a traveler, wanderer -> complex, fluid, and often perilous environment -> euphemism for prostitution (流落风尘 = become a prostitute)

刻意做出风尘气 here means coquettishly.
