JILL Duggar has shocked fans and been branded a "hippie" after she shared a selfie with a beaming smile while sporting a tie-dye sweatsuit.
Duggar family fans have shared their overwhelming support for the 29-year-old as she continues to find a new life for herself and her family away from her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
Jill, who regularly sports a boho bandeau on her head, rocked the classic hippie tie-dye look to support her cousin Amys fashion boutique and fans couldn't believe how "happy" she looked.
Discussing the change in the mom-of-two on Reddit, one wrote: "She looks great- like the clothes fit and are flattering, and she’s not dead in the eyes in her picture!"
"She looks….happy, a look I've never seen on any other Duggar daughter," shared another, while one fan said: "Jill looks so young and well rested here."
Others praised her for "developing her own identity/look", while one fan added: "She looks relaxed, which is such a difference.
"That smile isn't forced or fake and it changes her whole face. I love it so much."
Amy is Jill's cousin, and she opened her store in 2018, where she sells risqué clothing items – such as semi-sheer little back dresses and faux leather mini skirts – in comparison to the Duggar family’s modest dress code.
In recent months Jill and Amy have become much closer, and in early July the former Counting On star shaded her famous family by claiming her cousin Jill "smiles brighter these days".
The 33-year-old captioned an Instagram snap: "You smile just a bit brighter these days! So proud of you hippie chick!"
Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard, 31, have been keeping their distance from her parents since Derick told The Sun they are banned from the family compound when Jim Bob is not there.
Derick claimed Jim Bob, 54, withheld compensation from their appearances on the family’s reality show, Counting On.
Derick previously told The Sun: “I think he’s mainly worried about the influence we might have on his children.”
The law student continued: “Because our visitation to the Duggar house has been restricted and that is where they and their spouses hang out, we have not been able to see other family as much as we would like, so that is difficult.
“We do try to invite brothers and sisters-in-law over as much as they can come.”
Jill, however, isn't the only rebellious child, as sisters Jinger and Joy-Anna have also begun to wear more revealing clothes, including sleeveless tank tops and shorts.
Jinger also left Arkansas and is now living in Los Angeles with her husband Jeremy and their daughter.
