Many people might remember the 60s and 70s era as the hippie era. Hippie culture was the most dominant culture during these times. Hippie clothes and the hippie lifestyle were the most popular culture and everybody wanted to belong to this group.
The "hipster" term in London referred to the cool people and was actually based on the word hippie. Many would say that the clothes of the hippie would be the catchiest part of the whole hippie culture. But most people cannot remember the whole essence of the hippie culture.

Hippie culture actually started as a movement that was pro-nature and anti-war. It was started by people that could not tolerate violence around them. They loved nature and they incorporated it in their clothes. They used clothes that have lots of colors and that use cotton and hemp as the cloth for their clothes. It was during these times that unkempt sexiness was popular. The hippies spread the message of love and peace.
Girls wore colorful loose sexy spaghetti strap tops, paired with bell bottoms and leather sandals. Their hair was kept straight and uncombed. Native accessories were also popular in these times and scarves and bandanas were used as headbands as were flowers. More popular clothing items from the hippie culture were baja hoodies, tie dye shirts, and leather vests.

Nowadays, maxi dresses, rompers, and other dresses that are hippie-inspired are back in trend and popular again.

Though hippie clothes are popular and are back in trend and loved by most, the people who really live the ideas and thoughts of the hippie culture are not as loved. They are criticized by many. Despite this, they still
continue to spread the message and ideals of the culture.

You can buy hippie clothes at Mexican Threads where they offer everything from hippie door beads to baja hoodies.
