6. 60’s Hippie
If you are going to San Francisco, you should wear some flowers in your hair. Girls can wear a short straight dress or a Om kurta with a belt around their waists, teamed with flat sandals and a flower crown on their heads with light makeup on their face. Take inspiration from the Indian song- Dum maro Dum.

Boys, wear a hippish t-shirt, some lose jeans, a scarf on your forehead and round tea shades on your eyes. If you could get a fake moustach then nothing like it.

These pants are so in these days that I don’t think you don’t have them. Still if you don’t, wear a pair of lose pants, and tuck them in your boots. Borrow a waist coat from your dad, wear it under his oversized shirt in any earthy colour and don’t forget to wear one or two belts over your waistcoat. Buy a wig of braided hair and adjust it under your bandana. You are ready! :)
