Like traditional hippies, neo-hippies are political and motivated, to some degree. Neo-Hippie could be difined as someone who meets the all, if not most, following standards: Liberal in political veiws, sports certain fashion attire distinct to the "hippie" family and plays hackie sack. Neo-hippies also may be vegetarian and have an avid, if not obsessive, desire to recycle.
Neo-hippie 2-" What is it really that controls it it all, is it god?"
vegetarianism/veganism, the environment, animal rights, gay rights, mild recreational drugs, feminism, New Age spirituality, or organic produce.
Stereotypical neo-hippie attire includes loose, comfortable clothing like peasant tops, skirts and sandals. Homemade clothing is common among the truly hardcore, as it appeals to their anti-capitalist sensibilities. Long hair is popular with both males and females.

Fake neo hippies are usually white suburban kids who often wear patchwork pants (guys and girls), plaid shirts (guys) and have dreadlocks (girls and guys). They love Phish, Umphrey's McGee and String Cheese Incident. Very inclusive group of individuals that are drawn to others that dress and look the same and are frightened by diversity. Basically yuppies and suburbanites who decide to wear patchwork instead of Gap, but possess the same shallow ideals and large bank accounts care of mommy and daddy.
I once heard an excellent word to describe the fake neo hippies: trustafarians.
If you have been to more than 10 Phish concerts but have never had a conversation longer than 30 minutes with a person of color, you are indeed a fake Neo Hippie . Please check yourself!!
