A watch is an important part of your wardrobe. The Hippie counterculture movement emerged in California in the course of the late 1960’s, spreading quickly to the East Coast, particularly to Greenwich Village in New York City. The Hippie revolution was kicked off following the Summer time of Love in 1967, a socio-political phenomenon when nearly one hundred,000 folks gathered in San Francisco, inspiring social change and the acceptance of different lifestyles. Rebelling against consumerism, most hippies wore handmade clothing and accessories. Long maxi skirts and bell-bottomed jeans gained reputation together with floral patterns, vibrant tie-dyes, and paisley patterns. Ladies rejected the girdles and padded brassieres that were encouraged in the Fifties, replacing them with unconventional practices reminiscent of avoiding make-up and sporting long, unkempt hair.
