What Did Hippies Wear?

What did hippies wear back in the 70’s?  This is a very easy question to answer, hippie clothing consisted of your tie dye shirts and baja hoodies along with patchwork pants and head bands. They also had bell bottoms for pants.  Now if you aren’t sure what a baja hoodie is let me take some time to explain them and you will realize that you have seem them before and you might even have owned one at some time in your life.

The baja shirt is made of acrylic and polyester usually but they look like they are made of hemp.  They are sometimes called drug rugs or hippie hoodies.  They have that big pocket in the front and they have stripes that go up and down on them.  The pocket will always have the stripes going the opposite way.  They are coming back in style in 2010 and 2011.  If you haven’t bought one yet, you need to get on the ball.  If you are not sure what clothing to get your son or daughter for Christmas, you can’t go wrong with a baja hoodie.  They are very hard to find in any store so you will be better off just getting one online.  Don’t pay for shipping!  Some sites look cheap and then charge you a ton for shipping, but there is a site that offers free shipping so you can save some money.  These sweaters are very cool and the best part is that they don’t cost a lot of money.
