Free hippie fashion of the 1970s reflected youth culture's response to the strict ideas and conservative values of the 1950s and 1960s. Defined by their carefree and laid-back attitude, hippies adopted a more eclectic and relaxed style over the years. years. Above all, it symbolizes peace, love and equality for all. Artists like Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane popularized hippie fashion. It consisted of mixing ethnic clothing, colorful patterns, loose fabrics as well as certain essential accessories (headbands, necklaces, earrings, etc.). All of this made the flower power movement one of the most recognizable trends of the 1970s. We were also able to see the appearance of several subcategories of the hippie movement, such as (Boho style, or hippie chic style). 

Types of traditional clothing. 

Hippie women often wore loose, casual clothing like kaftans, floral tops, long dresses, and bell bottoms. This is a drastic change from the dresses of the 1970s. 1960. The latter were more formal. Hippie dresses also modified popular fabrics; the advent of central heating in homes made it necessary to use lighter clothing materials. Wool coats were now replaced by velvet jackets and raincoats.Flowing fabricsalso gained popularity. Light cotton, voile, muslin, viscose rayon and brushed materials became standards of the time.


International inspiration

For the first time, in the 1960s and 1970s, foreign travel became accessible to the masses thanks to airlines ✈️. Many Westerners were able to visit distant places and bring back with them new inspirations as well as previously unseen fabrics. Hippie style began to incorporate foreign influences and pieces. Caftans, kimonos, djellabas, Nehru jackets from India, Africa or Asia became the inspiration for the dresses comfort at home and light jackets that would become fashion items of the time. Often,these garments have been reinterpretedto have decadent and ostentatious details like gold metallic trimmings or sequins.

Hippie fashion

After the very structured codes of the 40s, 50s and early 60s, the bold and revolutionary style of the hippie took over.

“People exude peace, love, freedom and sexual liberation, which was reflected in their fluid and relaxed wardrobes.”

And it wasn't just women who loved this fashion trend: men were also often dressed in beautiful mustaches, with long hair adorned with bandanas as well as pearls and bright kaftans.


How to keep the hippie movement alive ?

From long dresses to peasant blouses, hippie fashion is making a comeback. But how can you wear these pieces without looking like you're wearing a costume for a disco party?

The thing is, unlike the psychedelic hippie fashion of the 60s, where the slogan was "More was More", nowadays it's more: "Less is More" ".
