1970’s Hippies fashion look books and youth culture



A decade of fashion, happenings and youth culture in the 1970s

In the 1950 came a new generation of young creative actors and musicians and changed youth culture forever, stars as James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and Marlon Brando gave the teenagers stars they could identify themselves. However, youth culture developed in the 1960s and became what we call modern pop culture. The most exiting decade of the last century was definitely 1970s; popular culture became a political tool used to fight war, hunger and violence. Last post was about American highways, freedom, motorbikes and biker culture, today the hippies. A movement that actually started in the early 1960s and exploded with summer of love in 1967; exuberant hippie fashion, as youth culture led by rock idols such as Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin expresses individuality with feathers, fringe, beads, tie-dye, and a rainbow of eclectic ethnic influences. Nevertheless, hippies in the 1970s were vast; music festival was the big thing, four to five days dancing in muddy fields became Utopia for the massive hippies’ movement.

I always try to be positive & have great energy to share. I try hard not to be affected by negative energy from others. I think that life is to short and that I do not have time to be grumpy, its only me that suffers from it and people around me. I believe that the whole universe is inter-connected, always in change and not everlasting. All people needs to develop positive karma, this will help us in the future. We all need to take care of this planet as we are only borrowing for a short time. So let us pass it on in a better condition than when we borrowed it. Remember next time we come around we might be able to borrow it again. I belive strongly that in a time like this we need strong visionary people that view the world as one. Enjoy
