The 1970s Hippies fashion lookbooks and style

In 1950 came a new generation of young creative actors and musicians and changed youth culture forever, stars as James DeanMarilyn 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 exciting decade of the last century was definitely 1970s; popular culture became a political tool used to fight war, hunger, and violence. The previous 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 bohemian style, 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.
