Have you watched Daisy Jones and the Six? If you’re looking for ‘70s Hippie Style inspiration and you haven’t watched it, then you need to! In the series, Daisy perfectly encapsulates the fashion of her time with fringed vests, crocheted tops, and flared pants.
The 1970s was a time of many societal changes, especially the huge growth in rights for women and youth counterculture. World War II had just come to an end, and the post-war economic boom was well underway. An era of great economic and technological advancements, changing the way clothes are made and distributed. Mass production, higher efficiency, and generating higher standards and uniformity are a few of the advancements that occurred during this “pivot of change” as historians have termed the Seventies.
Elements of the ‘70s Hippie Style are still apparent in today’s trends, and have made comebacks in recent years. Much of this is attributed to the American musical drama, Daisy Jones and the Six, which follows a rock band in the ‘70s from their rise in the LA scene to becoming one of the most popular bands in the world. It is no wonder that more of us are tapping into the glamorized ‘rock ‘n roll’ era.
To help you in your search, we’ve compiled a list of the most popular fashion trends of the ‘70s!
‘70s Hippie Style: Fashion Trends
Out of all the fashion trends that trace back to the 70s, flared jeans are arguably the most iconic. They serve as a statement base to your fit, with endless options of tops, shoes, hair styles and accessories to pair. At Nouveau and Vintage, we have a light washed denim pair (as shown in the photo above) and a white denim pair of flared jeans. Both feature floral embroidery, another fashion trend of the time.
In the Film Daisy Jones and the Six, Daisy is known for her big hoop earrings that she wears. Statement jewelry pieces are a key part of 70’s hippie style, from chokers, to layering and beads. Our Vanessa Mooney Daisy Pearl Choker (shown above) is a beautiful option, as is our Vanessa Mooney Daisy Mae Choker.
Embroidery & Floral Patterns
The ‘70s were all about individuality, liberty, and breaking the previous norms of society. This is symbolized through bright colors and groovy patterns. This is your opportunity to tap into the retro vintage color palette! Our Floral Crop Top is one of many bright pieces to add to your ‘70s hippie style inspired wardrobe.
Fringe took off in the ‘70s, often featured on black and brown leather (known as buckskins). From luscious and long strips of suede to micro-mini fringe trimmings, this ‘70s trend will make you want to channel everything from your inner ‘20s flapper dancer to that hidden wild west cowgirl. Our vintage studded fringe vest encompasses all of this!
An iconic moment in the film; Daisy and the band exit the plane with cheering fans awaiting their arrival. Daisy is wearing a patchwork denim jumpsuit which made us go wild!
