On BandraRoad, we often talk about boho style and hippie inspirations in clothing. We’ve also seen flower power elements, tie and dye, beads and hair bands at music festivals like Coachella, Glastonbury and Sula Fest too. It all started at Woodstock in 1969. Musicians, performers, artists, people from all walks of life and even kids gathered in numbers to celebrate the idea of love and freedom in all its forms.

While the infamous tales of the events at Woodstock still capture the fancy of present day film makers, historians, musicians and artists, we on BandraRoad can’t help but pick on the style influences that are still so strong on the streets today! On Instagram, we stumbled upon pictures that depict such lasting style examples and that’s exactly what we’re sharing with you!

From fringe details to bell-bottoms, kurtas and kaftans to the head bands, stacked bead bracelets and bumble bee glasses. The pictures below clearly speak of eternal style that is still remembered and redeemed on the streets today!

Every time we make our way to the street, we find pieces of clothing and accessories that remind us of late ’60s and the ’70s. We’ve spotted bumble-bee sunglasses at Colaba Causeway and beautiful tie-dyes at Paharganj in Delhi.
