When you combine the three words: fun, freedom and trends together then you get something like the Hippie fashion. It brings back the original bell-bottom jeans, bright bold colors and long flowing maxi dresses. It also reminds us of the floral prints, bold belts, the bandanas, caftans and funky fun accessories. It is a fashion that gives you all the liberty to experiment with your clothes and wear them in the manner you are most comfortable in. And if you are thinking that gone are those times when you could have dressed up like a Hippie chic then start feeling good as the fashion is reviving very fast. That Hippie era fashion which was widely influenced from the African, Middle Eastern and other ethnic trends is back. If you hate the neon colors the fashion industry is boosting of these days then it is the right kind of fashion for you. Dress up the way you want your look to be, don’t care what people will think as going Hippie is all about "yourself". Stand in front of the mirror and do every possible experiment with your attire and make-up. It is a season that can be called as free, as the fashion industry is moving away from its boundaries and going free!
The patchworks are a big yes in the Hippie fashion. Wear all different kinds of patches over your jeans, jackets and dresses, and make sure that they all are different as it will help you in giving a more cool and chic look in a simple way. Prefer the patches in the geometric designs or the big colorful flowers. Mix and match with all the left over pieces of fabric to create that very Hippie look.
Fringes, they have to be everywhere. As fringes is the main element of this kind of fashion. Have them over your jeans, skirts, tops and dresses. Go in for the leather fringes as they will help you in giving a more elegant look. Wear big hats with these fringes all over them and go Hippie with carrying bags and purses too with some fabrics hanging below.
Flower it up! Wear those real flowers on your head as the headband or wear a full maxi dress with a bold floral print. Hippie fashion leaves more effect when the attire is all about flowers. It helps in giving you a very chic yet cool look. The season in itself demand such prints and flowers are something that every woman is fond of. If you go in for such type of attire all I would advice is prefer the lighter shades like pink and baby blue with bolder prints.
Lastly wear those very big glares in funky colors that cover at least half of your face and wear a broad bandana to complete the look. Wear some bold and funky jewelry matching to the type of attire you are donning. And for the footwear, go in for something like the thigh high boots or the overly sequined sandals. Carry a huge bag with all the weird and different designs.
Well, Hippie fashion is very simple and it is very in! So, if you too want to get into the vibe then make sure that this season is all about something that is chic yet cool and elegant yet funky!
