How To: Pull off the Hippie Look

Get ready for another How To

In this edition you lovely ladies will learn

How To: Pull of the Hippie Look


Ever want to bring out your inner flower child?  Nows the perfect time to do so!
 You want to look all natural, and be mellow, cool, and calm.  
CAREFREE

Key item to consider wearing:

Long dresses:


Maxi dresses are perfect for this look

 (Dress: $19.99 Forever21.com)

Big flower prints are great to establish the earthly bohemian look 
 (Modcloth.com )

Tie dyes and tribal patterns also work 

($69.99 from modcloth.com)

(Patchwork Chiffon Dress alloy.com) 

 (Layla drop waist dress alloy.com)

(Laura Tunic Dress alloy.com)

Tunics

Flat Sandals

(Sandals: $17.80 Forever21.com)

Ripped jeans  

A Band t-shirt 
 ($15.80 Forever21)

Hair:
  
Natural waves ( you can scrunch your hair when it’s wet with some type of curl/wave enhancing product)  Let your hair air dry



Or if using a curling iron, make sure to let the curls be loose (it shouldn't look perfectly put together)

Braids 

Two Low ponytails/pigtails 

Braids and pigtails are both amazing options to achieve this look.  It embodies the hippie easy going mentality 

Whichever hair option you chose, add a headband to complete the look. 

Makeup:  

Be sure to keep your makeup looking natural.  Nothing that takes long to do.  Think neutral tones: shades of browns....

And if your brave, go completely natural with no makeup at all.   

Still wanting something extra special, paint a flower on the side of your cheek! 

Jewelry:

If you chose to add jewelry to this look, consider tribal inspired pieces.  
Chunky arm bands 
A piece of jewelry with the peace symbol on it. 
Big chunky rings


I hope you girls found this helpful! Would you embrace the hippie look??  I think this look works perfectly with summer.  I've never really dressed in the hippie/bohemian style before, but I do think some of the dresses are lovely.  And I think I would enjoy having a more carefree, yet beautiful look.  Something I don't have to obsess much over!
Anyway, I'd love to hear what other how to's you would like to see here on The Hot Spot!  I'm open for suggestions! Have a wonderful day!
