Top 10 Hippie Dresses

Like if this guide is helpful
The hippie dress is a style inspired by the popular attire of women in the 1960s and 1970s. These dresses feature all colours and patterns, but usually have free-flowing skirts that represent the wearer's free spirit. Hippie dresses utilise several fabrics, but lightweight and durable fabrics such as cotton or linen are more common over synthetic fibres. Though these styles represent a certain lifestyle, women do not have to be hippies to enjoy this look. Shoppers looking for a laidback and comfortable look should choose one of the top hippie dress styles for any occasion.
1 Sundress

A sundress is a casual dress made of lightweight fabric and commonly worn outdoors. It has thin straps that expose the arms and shoulders. They come in both long and short styles. The skirt of the dress is free flowing for maximum comfort and movement. It is a classic hippie dress as it goes along with a variety of jackets, sweaters, and shoes.

3 Convertible Dress

A convertible dress is the most versatile hippie dress available. The dress transforms into a different style depending on the wearer's preferences. As a full dress, wearers adjust the straps to create thin straps, a halter top, or strapless tops. The top also folds down to wear the dress as a long skirt. Convertible dresses often feature lightweight fabrics for casual occasions. They work best with sandals and other open-toe shoes.


4 Strapless Dress

A strapless dress has no sleeves or straps of any kind. As a hippie dress, it typically has a form-fitting top with a flowing skirt that falls from the knee to mid-calf. The exposed collar bones and shoulders provide a canvas for wearing chunky and artsy jewellery. The strapless dress works best in warm weather, but wearers may also throw a jacket or sweater over it to create a new look.


5 Peasant Dress

8 Halter Dress

A halter dress is a backless dress with straps that tie around the neck. The skirt of the halter dress flares out with a hem that typically falls from the knee to the mid-calf. Halter dresses come in all colours and sizes. To complete the casual hippie look, shoppers can pair the dress with a pair of sandals or flats.


9 Empire Waist Dress

Women who want to achieve the hippie style, but do not have a straight or slender figure should opt for the empire waist dress. This type of dress has a waistline that sits above the woman's natural waist and accentuates the bosom instead. As a result, it hides the hips, rear, and thighs to create a slim appearance. While the top and waist of the dress hug the body closely, the skirt flows out to create an A-shape.


10 Pleated Dress

A pleated dress has a series of accordion folds going all the way around creating an interesting texture. Some dresses also have small pleats in the bodice. Typically, this type of dress works as a solid colour paired with other patterns and textures to create a fun look. Women should avoid heels when going for a laid-back style.
