One of the biggest trends that has come out of the SS19 catwalks is hippy modernism. Also going by the name neo-hippie, and Hippy 2.0, this trend will be all over our social media feeds, with a stunning vacation backdrop. This trend was seen throughout the 2019 spring-summer shows and is the perfect way to walk into summer and to lounge around a beach or resort pool. 



It’s easy to see why hippy modernism has taken storm this spring/summer season. With long, maxi-looks, sensual draping and bright, fun prints, it’s exactly what the summer season has been missing. 

To help you shop the hippy modernism look, look no further. We’ve got you covered from the tips of your toes to the top of your head: 

Print Dresses

Print dresses are making a massive comeback, most particularly in the farmhouse style, and we’re loving it. Found now both on the biggest Instagram models and on the catwalk from the world’s most luxurious brands, this trend is timeless, elegant, and fun. 

Flowing Dresses 

If bright prints are not your thing, don’t worry. The other main look that has come off the runway this year are neutral, flowing dresses that will make you feel like a goddess when you wear them. Choose fabrics that flow in the wind and look regal when draped down. Accessorize with pops of color and a makeup look that is fierce, and you will rule the day and the night. 

Eye Catching Jewelry

Go big or go home with your accessories this season. You can either opt for massive dangling earrings that are designed to catch the light, or choose bright colors to make your statement. Other renditions have seen interesting shapes in traditional materials, like gold or silver. Either way, let your jewelry tell a story and put you as the star. 

Unique and Daring Clutches 

Have fun with your clutches and purses this season, with interesting and unique shapes and bold colors that will help your outfit pop. 

Rope Belts 

One accessory that was very popular on the Chloé catwalk were rope belts, which elegantly elongated the models’ figures and hugged the clothes to their curves. If you want a touch of metallic, consider a chain belt instead. 

80s Grunge Jackets 

With so much boho inspiration to love, it’s no wonder that many top designers like Yannis Viamos have paired their print dresses and chain belt with a rocking biker jacket that modernizes the look and helps make a statement. You can pick up your grunge jacket to contrast with your hippy modernist summer wardrobe and look both put together and darling all at once.  

Whether you are making your way through the hottest festivals this summer, or are on your own pilgrimage to a land far from home, the hippy modernism look will help you stay comfortable, cool, and oh so chic. Pair print or flowing dresses with daring accessories, and skip the complimentary jackets for ones that stand out.
