Ooh, fashion! Who doesn’t want to talk about that? It’s a topic people casually delve into whenever they’re chit-chatting with friends or doing small talk with strangers. Talking about fashion is about as natural as talking about the weather. It’s the kind of “thing” people always want to converse about. Knowing what’s trendy, popular, and “hot” in the world of fashion can be a very exciting thing – and I am no exception to the hype.
If we go a couple years back the fashion memory lane, you may notice how trends are likely to come and go. Much recently, however, they don’t just “come and go.” They come, they go, and they come back again. Looking at the fashion industry now, it would seem that what kicked off in the late 70’s and 80’s are coming back after a long hiatus. They have been revived and relived into better, bolder versions.

If you don’t believe me, just take a look at all the people wearing high-waist square pants in social media! In the early 2000’s, this kind of style has been burned and buried alive. People thought it was “too obsolete” and “out of fashion.” These types of trousers were removed from closets and thrown deep into the void of non-fashionable items. Fast forward 2018, the very same type pants are resurfacing. We see fashion icons wearing them. We see teens wearing them. In other words, it has been revived and brought into the limelight once more. And people seem to have forgotten all about the cold treatment these “now-fashionable” pants were getting several years back. To many people, they’re new fashion items. They seem to have forgotten all about the golden age of fashion that bombed the streets four or five decades ago.
Another type of style that has risen from the dead is hippie fashion. I’m talking Yogi Wear, bohemian styles, and naturalistic fashion. If I’m not mistaken, this type of fashion was stereotyped to be worn by pot smokers and “peace ambassadors” for a good part of the 21st century. Nowadays, people are seemingly in-love with it – and for good reason. I, for one, have always been into hippie fashion. I love how the style perfectly blends fashion and comfort. I mean, it’s not like those skimpy skirts and stiletto heels that slowly kills you for looking perfect, you know. Hippie fashion brings out your inner fashionista without subjecting you to thorns and needles. It’s a wholesome way to look stylish and feel comfortable at the same time. It’s probably the most practical application of fashion out there. Check out this link to see more hippie fashion to steal for your next OOTD.
Why are some people too hesitant to try it out though?
Well, it’s likely because hippie fashion is misconstrued to use bright, colourful tones all the time. That simply doesn’t sit right with some people and so they get turned off about the whole idea of sporting hippie wear. But you know, this is a complete myth. Hippie fashion isn’t just about bright colours; it’s about colours that make you happy and feel at peace. It also plays with earthly tones and natural colours like nude, browns, and beige. It doesn’t have to be yellow-green and fuchsia all the time, you know.
With all that being said, you may want to consider experimenting with hippie fashion soon. I tell you, it’s worth a try. It’s been one of my favorite styles since my teenage years. It’s timeless, really. If you’re tired of wearing tight jeans and skimpy dresses most of the time, maybe trying out yogi wear will give you a fashionable break. It can introduce you to the world of “comfy” fashion. It will help you realise that you shouldn’t sacrifice your comfort for the sake of looking good. You can have the best of both worlds, especially now that hippie fashion is gaining more attention in the world of beauty and fashion.
