15 Hippie Fashion Statements That Are Going Mainstream

Jewelry Layering

We're not saying to wear a lot of jewelry to your workplace. When you’re at the office, you probably want to wear minimalistic jewelry. However, after hours is when the party really begins, and the more jewelry you don, the better. The next time you go out with your girlfriends for a glass of wine and a good time, stack on the rings, bracelets, necklaces, or all three, because this boho chic trend is giving “less is more” a run for its money. Now, it isn't unusual to see someone wearing several bracelets, two or more necklaces, and rings of various sizes on their fingers. Our suggestion? Opt for natural stones like turquoise to go for the perfect hippie look.

Bell Sleeves

You know what goes wonderfully with those flared jeans? Bell-sleeved tops! Pairing these two flowy pieces together gives you the perfect boho vibe that’s perfect for spring. Or, if you want to tone it down a notch, pair your bell-sleeved tops with a simple pair of cutoffs or lace shorts.

Headbands

Wide headbands and turbans are not only a great way to hide a bad hair day, but they’re also incredibly stylish. Casual is the new chic, and nothing’s more casual than wrapping a headband around your unwashed hair! Style your headband with a pair of round sunglasses, a crop top, and palazzo pants to look fashionable and be comfortable wherever you go.

Crystals

Crystals and other semi-precious stones are all the rage in the jewelry world right now. You can find these gems embedded in all kinds of gorgeous necklaces, earrings, and rings, and they’ll perfectly match all of your bright spring colors! Layer a long crystal necklace over a loose tank, a floral kimono, and a pair of shorts for a great coffee date outfit.

Tie Dye

Tie-dyed clothing automatically takes you back to the '60s, but many of the current tie dye pieces are stylish! My personal favorite is monochromatic tie dye, such as a rose quartz tie dye tank, because it is sophisticated enough for the office but still fun enough for happy hour! Simply add a pair of white skinny jeans, wedges, and a statement necklace, and you’re good to go.

Full-Length Skirts

Full-length skirts come in a surprising variety of styles, from simple and elegant to a wrap-around skirt hiding pants underneath. Solids are best for a patterned top, but large floral patterns on your skirt are also a great way to jazz up your look. Waist to toes, these classic hippie skirts can work for just about any occasion.

Ponchos

Ponchos started gaining a lot of momentum this past fall, and it doesn’t seem like this trend is going to slow down anytime soon. These cozy, oversized sweaters fit right into the current layering trend, and they look great with distressed jeans, another look that it hot right now! Top off your outfit with a pair of ankle boots and an infinity scarf for a stylish look.

Florals

Bold florals used to primarily be worn by hippies and infants, but they’re coming back in a big way. Fall florals were extremely popular this season, and from the looks of it, florals are still very much on trend for spring. Rock your floral shift dress or romper with ankle boots, or if you want to toughen it up a little, throw on some combat boots.

Crop Tops

If you’ve got a stomach you can bounce a crystal off of, crop tops can be the perfect summer top. Definitely not work appropriate, these day off casual crop tops look great with shorts, skirts, or overalls. If you’re less comfortable with showing the extra skin, pair them with a pair of high waist pants to make up the difference.

Floppy Hats

How better to keep the sun out of your eyes at that festival? Just because you’re going bohemian doesn’t mean your hat shouldn’t match your shoes, so pair your sandals and cowboy boots appropriately.

Oversized Glasses

Oversized glasses were highly popular a few decades ago before they died out in the 2000s. However, this trend is starting to make a comeback in the style world, all thanks to hipster fashion. Pair these glasses with an oversized sweater (or a poncho!), distressed skinny jeans, and a pair of ankle boots to have all eyes on you.

Giant Cloth Bags

These bags are perfect for storing absolutely everything you need, right down to a bottle of wine and a change of clothes. Look for patchwork, bead embellishments, and small tassels to really get the hippie feel. Paired with your flared jeans and headband, you’ll fit right in the next time Woodstock comes around.

Embroidered Accents

With or without beads, embroidery can add a hippie-chic look to just about any item of clothing you own. Buying your clothes pre-embellished is, of course, considerably easier. If you’re handy with a needle and thread, however, grab some floss and a boring jacket and get to work for the perfect finish to your ensemble.

Crochet Vests

Layering is a fairly new spring trend, and one of the chicest ways to achieve this look is to drape a lightweight crochet vest over a tank top, tee, or casual dress. Vests are on trend for every season, so you can wear yours all summer long with your warm-weather favorites and keep wearing this look with long-sleeve tops and and boots when the weather cools off.

Flared Jeans

Flared jeans are on the cusp of making a major comeback. They emanate the perfect '70s vibe, and they make your legs look like they’re a mile long. Rock your flared jeans with a crop top and a pair of wedges for a look that’s perfect for everything from a music festival to a trip to the mall.
