For some, hippy clothing is just a fashion statement, for others it is too bright, too colourful and too loud, however, for most of us (us hippy’s that is),
including myself and Sy, it is just who we are.
Hippy clothing is a choice, it is a passion and it is a way of life.
For me personally and I am sure for many of you too, we wear hippy clothing day in and day out and for all occasions. It is not always easy to find decent hippy clothes that can be worn anywhere and everywhere which is why we have made it our mission to find such clothing.
We have comfy hippy clothing that is just perfect for slouching around in, casual clothing that is perfect for those days bimbling around in the park and going for walks. We have hippy clothing that you could wear to the office, much like I used to when I worked in a posh office in London, and we even have elegant hippy clothing for the ladies and gentlemanly clothing for the men that is perfect for weddings, christenings and the like.
People think that hippy clothing is always bright, covered in crazy patterns and a major assault on the sense but this is just not true. Ok, some of the time it is as bold designs and colours were a big thing back in the day however, we know how to tone it down too without taking away the fabulousness!
I can recall looking back through old photo albums of my parents and seeing the bell bottoms, the platform shoes, the funky dresses and blouses and the wicked waistcoats and jumpers that they used to wear. I was hooked from a young age. They just looked so happy and so free. Perhaps that was just their pre kids album 😉
My very first item of hippy clothing was actually handed down from my mother and was a jumper which I still have today. Said jumper was hand knitted by my Nana in the early 70’s and is beautifully thick and soft with these great big sleeves. The magical jumper is one of my most favourite pieces of hippy clothing which I hope to be able to pass down a generation one day.
Let me guess, you are now thinking about your very first experience with hippy clothing. It is great to think back and wonder how the love started. Sometimes when you are growing up, it is hard to work out exactly who you are and the kind of person you want to be. Sometimes it is hard to express your feelings and express who you are. This is where the wonderful world of hippy clothing comes into your life. Wear what you want, wear what you feel comfortable in and who gives a monkey’s what anyone else thinks.
I was told recently by someone that they wished they were as brave as I was as they would love to wear hippy clothing but was too worried what others might think. Do you know what I told her? – Sod it! As long as you are comfy and are happy, why should it matter what you wear. You are your own person and not a sheep. You do not have to dress like everyone else.
You want to wear hippy clothing then do it. You are a hippy, express it and be proud!
Not everyone who wears hippy clothing is a hippy, they just like the clothing. That’s cool, I think anyone and everyone can wear it. It is not exclusive. You don’t have to be a hippy, just a lover of the clothing!
We love to express ourselves at hippy HQ and we want to help you to do the same which is why we scout the globe trying to find the best hippy clothing that we can.
When we find something that we like but something is not quite right, we out in special order to get it amended. When we like the style of an item of clothing but not the material then we put in orders to get it changed. At times we even design the hippy clothing ourselves from ideas that we have had. It is hard work to find things to make all of our hippy friends happy but, we are being told on a regular basis that we are doing a fab job. Happy Hippy’s = Happy Hippy HQ.
