Um...are we watching a re-run of "That 70's Show" or is the hippie trend back in style? I'm going to go with the second option, because it's totally true! If you haven't noticed...there's a lot of hippie going on, but not like what your parents wore back in the day. Sure we're still seeing the high-waisted flaired pants, but in a whole different way! Let me show you some examples of what I'm talking about!
This totally awesome set was made by natasha goldenberg! I love how trendy and hippie this is! The colors all seem to fit and the big bright patterns really make you feel like you're in a different era! Tip #1: If you are going to use some cool peices, don't go overboard by mixing one too many patterns together. Use simple and light wash items.
This awesome set was made by Torin. This is a more common version of what you should wear when trying to obtain that "hippie look." The messenger bag is definitely something you want to use when finishing off the look. Tip #2: When doing the hippie look, make sure you're using colors that fit the era. Light almost mute purples, browns, golds and greens are really great colors to use when it comes to completing the look. (:
This totally hippie set was made by the wonderful laritournelle! This is yet another common version of what you would want to look like if you were trying to pull off the hippie look. It's subtle yet totally in-style. Tip #3: Don't go Good-Will. Sure, it's fun to pick up peices from boutiques and thrift stores, bt don't make your whole entire wardrobe thrift store. It's great to find cool designer things for 3/4 of the price...but lets keep our dignity while we can. Find a few peices there, and a few peices maybe at Nordstrom, or even Target!
And last but not least, this set was made by me. I know it's not the typical hippie outfit, but the prints are cool and the set all around fits! Tip #4: Have fun with it! No one likes a boring hippie...make sure the peices describe you and make you stand out from the crowd without going overboard!
So there you have it. Use these tips and fashion ideas to dress like a true hippie. Need some celeb inspiration? Look at Nicole Richie for a little bit of inspiration, she dresses like a true hippie!
