Hippy Fest

January 11th, 2011 by , and  |  Published in Headline, The Look  |  2 Comments

It’s that time of year again, Music Festival season, and if like me you enjoy listening to good bands with a bunch of good friends, well, then your about to see more fake fur legwarmers and fairy wings than anyone ever really should. Yes, music festivals bring out the worst dressers in the country and plonks them all in the electro tent. To counter this visual horror why not dress in your Woodstock best?

The recent 70′s and 90′s revival has meant there are a lot of great options for getting your hippy on. Why not try some denim flares with a loose fitting tee for a comfortable take on the style. Or you can pair some comfy Chuck Taylors with a loose fitting dress and some John Lennon sunnies and call it a day. Hippy style is about being relaxed and having fun, so play with scarfs and headbands until you get the look that suits you.

    I love each look although recently coming back from Sunset Sounds in Brisbane all we needed was gumboots and ponchos. Great model as well.
