Been seeing a lot of tie dye and hippie styles, are 60's back now?
I have always been fascinated by the Hippie Subculture. Peace, love and freedom, can anyone really disagree with that? This subculture was controversial, even disastrous in many people's eyes, but in my mind it was revolutionary! After, the 80s and the 90s making a comeback on the runway and in the fashion world, it is only expected to see the 60s making its eventual appearance.
The 60s somehow seem more friendly and acceptable than now, despite all the negative stigma. The new hippie chic style is relaxed, easy going, and playful. I am starting to believe that it takes a certain personality to like this era and this style. So, if you will, let's all celebrate peace, love and freedom!
Tie dye is also another fun and colorful creation of the 60s. It could transform your old clothes into something unique, which is also another great characteristic of tie dye - nothing is ever exactly the same. I found some unexpected usage of tie dye while shopping online.
