The perfect costume for ladies

As a lady, you can either wear a white or a colorful, flowery shirt which you knot at the hem to leave your belly visible. Tops or dresses should not be worn skintight but rather in a wide leisure look. If you are going to wear pants, remember to wear flares. To complete the basic of your outfit you can either wear platform shoes or summer shoes made of leather.

The perfect costume for men

As a man, you should wear a colorful shirt and leave the upper buttons open – As you should show your chest hair. If you´re not hairy enough for this occasion, you can purchase a chest hair toupee. You can´t get enough into detail. Furthermore, you should combine the shirt with a leather vest and a flare pants. As shoe wear we recommend platform shoes or summer shoes in leather. 

Combine your accessories as you like – There are no wrongs or rights

When you decide to dress up like a hippie, do not forget the headdress. This can ,for example, be a curly wig, a pirate headscarf, a sunhat or a headband. Whatever you go for, the most important part is a flower or a batik pattern. Another accessory that matches your outfit perfectly are round shaped sunglasses. To round off your outfit you should go with some feather jewelry or the peace sign as a necklace. Women should additionally wear large earrings.
