The mod look is one of fall’s biggest fashion trends to make a comeback. We’ve seen lots of it on the runways as well as on magazines and quite a number of our favorite fashion bloggers are starting to master this look from back in the 60s. Sporting the mod look can be a little tricky. You’ll want your outfit to end up looking classy and timeless instead of tacky so choosing which items to mix and match is important. If you want to take on this resurfacing trend, check out these mod fashion wardrobe must haves.
- Shift dress – a shift dress is a definite must have in any mod wardrobe. Its versatility makes it a piece worthy of some closet space. If you want something that you can wear along with other looks apart from mod, go for a shift dress in a plain, solid (preferably neutral) color. If you intend to use your shift dress solely for your mod looks, on the other hand, feel free to go crazy on the colors and print patterns on it.
- Bright colors – another must have in any mod wardrobe is color. Lots of it, in fact. Anything fun, bright and vibrant is welcome in the mod girl’s wardrobe. Be bold and don’t hold back on choosing the loudest colors you can get your hands on. If you know how to do the color block, that’s even better. One of the things you should aim for with a mod wardrobe is an upbeat look and that’s where all the colors really come in handy.
- Geometric patterns – the 60s mod look was a combination of a lot of things and one of the things that stand out among these is the print pattern that consists of geometrical shapes and lines. Florals, polka dots, stripes and all that jazz were, somehow, just in the background during the mod period and geometric patterns were front and center when it came to print styles.
- Boxy silhouettes – as with any look, balance is what makes the mod trend fab and stylish and, since you already have all your bright, bold and loud colors to make up the most of your look’s color palette, one way to achieve balance in the mod look now is to wear simple, boxy silhouettes. This will keep the whole outfit looking sane and wearable.
- Vintage accessories – of course, they weren’t considered vintage at the time but if you’re doing the mod look today, the accessories that completed the look back in the day are essential. Round sunglasses, capes, knee high boots, tights, funky chunky jewelry – these are just some of the accessories you’ll need for a mod look.
