What do hippies and hip hop have in common? Nixon’s Closet, that’s what! Well, okay, they have little more than that in common. They both embrace an attitude that tells the world this is me, deal with it! Can you think of how horrified your straight-laced grandparents must have been when their kids didn’t just shake their legs like Elvis? Instead, they ran on down to Tin Pan Alley and started a whole new way of living. They fought the man in style with cool clothes and groovy toons, man.
It doesn’t seem like it, but those Birkenstock wearing, long-haired hippies of today came from some of history’s biggest bad boys--and girls! Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, the Mommas and the Poppas and all those movers and shakers that shook up the status quo.
How About a Little Boho Chic for the Softer Side of Strong?
At Nixon’s Closet, we have some far-out styles inspired by the 60s and 70s folk-rock scene. Our line of boho for girls uses vintage colour schemes, patterns and cuts that hearken back to the days when Woodstock was just a bunch of clueless kids playing in the mud. It’s all about peace, love and strength of character; just like the roots that define it.
This line is all about dancing to your own tune and knowing your song well before you start singing. We capture the essence of the age with delicate floral patterns, oh-so-fun fringes, bell sleeves and flower-power headbands. Yep, we’ve got it all!
Is Anyone Down for a Little Sunny Optimism?
One thing that sets this alternative trend apart is a tendency towards the silver lining. Yes, these folk-singing beatniks were fighting for a way of life they thought was better. They just weren’t quite as depressed about it as the 90s grunge scene, or as angry as hip hop. We don’t really know what to say about 80s hair metal, so we’re just going to leave that one alone …
That’s what makes this line such a special part of Nixon’s Closet. It’s the sunny side of the street where rebellion meets positivity. It’s what renegades stood for before the man took over the music industry. It’s also a super sweet look for your little girl!
Our Clothes are the Coolest Around Daddio
The great thing about shopping at our store is you’re not limited to any one alternative style. We love to play around with all the variety we have to offer, and we’ve learned a few things from doing so. For instance, nothing rocks a fringe jacket better than pale pink with urban high tops to match! It’s kind of like Janis Joplin meets Aretha Franklin meets Cyndi Lauper, and it’s all about the fun!
The same goes for our boy’s fashions and cool baby clothes. Hip hop was made to pair with a little 90s grunge, and or outfits make the connection quite nicely if we do say so ourselves; and we do! It’s not about what we say, though. It’s about raising your kids with that pioneering spirit that allows them to know the power and value of their own voices.
