A youth movement that started in the US during the mid sixties, the hippy subculture is one that is talked about even today. They heralded the power of peace, believed in universal love, and fought for the right of the self. The impact of this subculture has been far-reaching and wide. Probably one of the biggest influence that hippies have left behind has been that on fashion. While the culture was all about defining one's own individuality, there were some common themes in the way they styled themselves.
