Hippy Chick

Pulling off this peace-loving costume is an easy one! Fringed denim shorts and a flowy off the shoulder top or flowy boho style dress first, next, part your hair down the middle, wear a headband over the forehead, some long necklaces, a pair of booties and a few small daisies or peace sign on the cheek to finish the look.
