So I'm pretty much into hippie styles and the 60's/70's. I kind of want to change my style to a hippie/boho style. I did some research on hippie styles and well, I found nothing. But I do know some of the basics that I'd like to share.
Your reaction? "no way!". Okay so the picture puts a lot of emphasis on bell bottoms. I never in my life would have IMAGINED wearing a pair of bell bottoms more so liking them. I don't own a pair. I don't even know if they sell them anywhere since they're an older trend. take a moment and imagine yourself wearing a pair of bell bottoms, with a nice fitted or flowing shirt! When I imagine me wearing that I think "wow, so retro but SO cute" because it's different and don't we all want to be different? Like all fashion trends, we end up adapting to them and making them work, let's make bell bottoms work AGAIN (:
These can be made out of ribbon, yarn, hair extensions, bandannas I especially love headbands like the first picture and then clipping a nice big flower on the side. So pretty and so elegant. Here's a video I found on YouTube earlier on how to make the hippie headband, with your own hair at ZERO COST. Woo.
I love the literal meaning of the word tie dye. Because when you're making a shirt, you're actually tying shirts to be dyed. Tye dye dates back to ancient times which was developed in China during T'ang dynasty (618-906 A.D). I swear, everything I mean EVERYTHING ends up being made in China. Tie dye was popular during the 60's/70's and still popular today. I see it a lot today. Tie dye bags, shirts, bandannas There's a lot of ways you can wear tie dye besides in t-shirt form!
I've always loved peace signs. I have a lot of peace sign jewelry and bags. Hippies believe in peace & love. Wear a symbol of peace, spread the love. Well, don't wear a peace sign if you're going to start a war. Wear it if you truly believe in peace.
Aww. . . Isn't he the cutest - fringed vests, go go boots, leather fringed sandals, bandannas, hip-huggers, ripped jeans, mini & micro skirts, chain belts, lots of bracelets, patched pants, floral leggings, flowing tops & lets not forget the vintage sunglasses.
