You don't have to wear the outfits you see models wearing on the runway. You're free to mix and match styles from different decades in order to create your own trends. That way, you'll look unique and you'll make your parents proud for blending your decade's styles with theirs. If you don't know all that much about the '60s, here are a few of the sexiest trends to steal from the hippie days:
1. Wear Tie Dye Dresses
There are some pretty gorgeous tie dye shirts and dresses out there. You just have to keep an eye out for them. Of course, you could also grab a white dress or shirt and create the designs all on your own. It's much simpler than it looks. Check out instructables.com for some step-by-step instructions.
2. Wear Dresses with Fringes
Back in the day, both men and women loved to wear fringed vests. While you might not be a fan of that exact look, you have to admit that fringed dresses and skirts are pretty darn cute! They'll give your outfit some flair. Plus, when the fringes blow in the wind, you'll look like a model with a wind machine.
3. Wear Ripped Denim Shorts
You probably already own a pair or two of these. But if you don't, you should buy some pronto. Now that it's getting warmer out, you'll be able to wear them on a daily basis. If you have a pair of super old shorts, then you could just cut apart the leg holes to create the ripped look all on your own.
4. Wear Oversized Glasses
These circular, tinted glasses were all the rage a few decades back. Of course, you can still pull them off today if you're brave enough to be different! Some face shapes look better with them than others, though, so just try a few pairs on at the store and then check yourself out in the nearest mirror. You'll know right away whether you want to rock the look or leave it for someone else.
5. Wear Headbands across Your Forehead
This trend has already made a comeback, so you don't have to feel weird when you wear it. All you have to do is grab one of your old headbands and place it across your forehead instead of using it to push your hair back. It's easy to do, and cheap too!
6. Wear Flowy Shirts
You have a hot body, but you don't need all of your shirts to be tight against your skin. There are some pretty gorgeous shirts out there that are loose and flowy. If you really want that '60s effect, then make sure to grab a shirt with a few flowers printed on it.
7. Wear Bell Bottoms
No matter how popular skinny jeans become, bell bottoms will always be in. You can buy a pair of high-waisted ones and match it with a crop top, or you could buy a bright pair that you can wear with a simple white top.
You don't want to walk around looking like a hippie unless it's Halloween. However, there are bits and pieces you should steal from the '60s because they're easy to mix and match with modern fashion. What other trends do you love from the hippie days?
