Flower power was a slogan used by the American counterculture movement during the late 1960s and early 1970s as a symbol of passive resistance and non-violence ideology.
It is rooted in the opposition movement to the Vietnam War. The expression was coined by the American Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in 1965 as a means to transform war protests into peaceful affirmative spectacles. Hippies embraced the symbolism by dressing in clothing with embroidered flowers and vibrant colors, wearing flowers in their hair, and distributing flowers to the public, becoming known as flower children. The term later became generalized as a modern reference to the hippie movement and a culture of drugs, psychedelic music, psychedelic art and social permissiveness.(WIKI)
It is definitely getting Floral for Spring of 2013, or as some may call it: Flower Power.
Don’t get rid of your floral-prints clothes you have — not yet, as the upcoming trend for Spring 2013 is going to blossom-you-away.
Whether it is a jacket, a chiffon dress, maxi skirt, tight high rise pants and even a pair of jeans, they are all going to be floral and colorful. (HUFFINGTON P)
