Bohemian Fashion Influences: 1970's Hippies
Posted on 09 October 2016
While the hippie movement first appeared in the 1960's, it survived well into the 1970's, especially in terms of fashion and music.
1970's hippie style is still a huge influence on bohemian fashion. 1970's inspired silhouettes, prints, colors, hair and makeup all make regular appearances in boho fashion editorials.
Want to copy this inspiration for yourself? Think California boho style, as epitomized by the beautiful Stevie Nicks. This is a more luxe, sophisticated style than 1960's hippies.
Look for draped or wrap maxi dresses for instant 1970's hippie glamor. High-waisted, flared denim will also help you to get the look, as will fabrics like shearling, suede and corduroy.
In terms of prints, paisley is the ultimate 1970's hippie print. Colors like brown, gold and mustard will also perfectly capture the hippie-luxe mood.
To finish off your look, try a broad-brimmed floppy hat and big, messy curls.
