Let's Start from the Top
Whether you’re a hippie chick or dude, the key to creating an awesome and authentic hippie ensemble is to layer some funky threads! Here are some ideas for tops:
Tie Dye T- Shirt : If you’re looking for something that screams hippie, tie dye certainly does the trick!
Vest : Bring some vintage vibes to your outfit by layering on a colorful woven vest or a funky fringe vest!
Dashiki : This west African-inspired shirt was wildly popular with free spirits of the ‘60s!
Crochet Top or Boho Blouse : Channel your inner flower child with a cute crochet top or beautifully bohemian flowy blouse!
On to the bottoms!
Guys: You can’t go wrong with a comfy pair of pants! Handcrafted tie dye, cool and colorful woven, or super sustainable hemp, whatever you choose- wear them in good vibes!
Girls: Here are a few choices to channel your inner flower child:
- Flares : No hippie chick’s wardrobe is complete without a super groovy pair of bell bottom jeans or flare leg pants!
Patchwork : This super cute and sustainable trend saw huge popularity in the handicraft-loving hippies! Reach for a flowy patchwork skirt, or a funky pair of flared patchwork pants!
Required footwear for hippies? Either barefoot or Buffalo Sandals!
Walk a day in these authentic handcrafted hippie sandals and you will feel as though you have stepped back into the Summer of Love.
Give your hippie ensemble a head above the rest with some awesome headwear!
Bandana : A bandana is a hippie’s best friend! Wrap it around your head, your wrist, or so much more!
Floppy Leather Hat : Join the ranks of hippie legends like Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and John Lennon with a classic vintage style floppy hat!
Corduroy Cap : Our caps made from recycled corduroy would make any earth-loving hippie proud!
Honeycomb : Keep your lovely locks out of your face with a handcrafted hemp honeycomb hat!
Headband : From a flower crown to a psychedelic tie dye headband, a hippie headband could take your outfit to the next level!
If you really want to put your hippie costume over the top, you NEED accessories!
Sunglasses : Channel your favorite Beatle with an awesome pair of round Lennon style sunglasses!
Bag : Strap on a fanny pack, or throw a cute boho bag over your shoulder!
Peace Signs : Show you’re a proponent of peace, just like the flower children of the ‘60s, with a couple of peace signs, like a peace sign necklace or earrings!
Mood Ring : If you're in the mood for something straight out of the 70's then this is the perfect accessory!
Jewelry : Put your outfit over the top with lots of jewelry! Throw on a funky pair of earrings, fill your fingers with rings, or even add a bunch of bracelets or a cool tie dye scrunchie to your wrist. Go crazy and create your own free-spirited stacks!
