Hippie goth is a type of alternative fashion style that combines elements of hippie fashion, such as flowing fabrics, earthy tones, and nature-inspired accessories, with darker, gothic influences like black clothing, heavy metal jewelry, and dramatic makeup.
Like both hippie and goth cultures that it is derived from, Hippie Goth values individuality, self-expression, and a certain level of non-conformity. It combines the colorful and free-spirited aesthetic of hippie culture with the dark and edgy elements of goth subculture, creating a unique and eclectic style that allows for a range of self-expression. In addition to the fashion aspect, Hippie Goth also embodies certain philosophical ideas, such as a rejection of societal norms and a focus on personal freedom and creativity.
(Important note: This type of goth has no relation with the original gothic subculture other than its related visual aesthetic)
Hippie Goth fashion is a unique and evolving subculture that blends elements of both hippie and gothic fashion. It is an emerging style that has recently gained popularity among fashion enthusiasts who want to stand out from the crowd.
Typical dressing code in hippie goth fashion is characterized by long black or dark colored dresses, flowy shirts or pants, dark colored bandanas, and large glasses. The clothing often has a bohemian or vintage flair, reminiscent of the 1970s. The flowing silhouettes and dark color palette evoke a sense of mystery and elegance.
One of the distinguishing features of hippie goth fashion is the presence of occult symbols. These symbols are often incorporated into the clothing, accessories, and jewelry. They add a mystical and magical element to the overall look and feel of the outfit. Some of the most common symbols used include pentagrams, crosses, and moon phases.
Makeup in hippie goth fashion is versatile, with no set style. However, the preferred style is an eyeliner style like cat's eye with bolder lips. Dark and bold colors are the norm, adding to the overall gothic aesthetic. The makeup enhances the natural beauty of the face, while still emphasizing the mysterious and otherworldly aspects of the hippie goth look.
