Any time we see snaps of Anita Pallenberg, Talitha Getty, or really, any festival shots from Woodstock, it strikes us somewhere deep inside that we were born in the wrong era.

While we may not be protesting, or even frolicking in pastoral puddles of mud, we do have festival season ahead of us, and with Coachella in mind, we've put together five getups that any would-be hippie will flip for. Featuring gypset dresses, floral crowns, and earthy accessories galore, these unique looks will certainly liberate your style's non-conformist side!
