    Hippie Style

    The ‘hippie era’ was one of the most important youth movements of the mid-1960s. What arose in San Francisco in America, spread also to other countries and continents. This movement not only touched the fashion world but also those of music, art and culture. The etymology of the term ‘hippie’ is from hipster and reflects a disorderly, often vagrant style. Also called ‘Flower Children’, since flowers were chosen as a symbol of freedom, there was almost no difference in dressing between the genders in the hippie movement: both men and women wore jeans and long hair, sandals or even went barefoot. Men often wore beards, while women wore little or no makeup, with many of them going bra-less.Hippies often chose brightly colored and printed clothes and wore unconventional styles, such as long, full skirts, bell-bottom pants, and urban style vests. They were known for their tie-dyed garments, dashikis, and peasant blouses. Hippies usually got their clothes from flea markets or second-hand shops if they weren’t even self-made. Favored accessories were long beaded necklaces, often very colorful and headbands or head-scarfs.
