1960’s Mod Fashion

Mod fashion is major this season, but not everyone knows this term is often refered to as the early ‘60s when a classic silhouette wasn’t just a figure of speech. This time, the ’60s vibe of practical, versatile separates has been seeping onto Fall runways.

History of Mod fashion

This short historical note helps us understand the swinging ’60s mod fashion vibe of saturated shades, geometric dresses, tunics paired with pants, A-line coats, and knee-high boots we have recently seen on the runways. Fortunately for us there is nothing too costume-y about it. To recreate the trendy mod flair, choose clothes with a simplistic construction, especially featuring a geometric print with pops of colour. Pair the look with knee-high boots in pastel shades and beehive hair for a go-go girl vibe. Wear your clothes with opaque tights, don’t be afraid of a dropped waist, houndstooth print and a jeweled neckline that all give a touch of retro-inspired charm.

The heaviest influences of the Mod squad was seen in Prada and Bottega Veneta. Looks like designers harked back to the times when André Courrèges enjoyed great success on fashion scene. He is the French fashion designer, known for the ultra-modern designs magical in their simplicity. Apart from the shortest geometric mini-dresses Paris has ever seen, Courrèges was the lucky inventor of go-go boots – low-heeled, calf high boots made of white plastic.
