Hippie festival looks

Icon: Festival fashion, festival look
Story: In the 60's same minded young people started to get together to listen to music and enjoy life in festivals. Most legendary festival has to be 1969 Woodstock. Summertime music festivals create a prefect setting for a free atmosphere to be anything, so festival fashion is free of any codes and habits. Wear anything you feel good in.
