Take a Mod Journey Back into Time with 60’s-Inspired Fashion

What goes around comes around, especially in fashion. Case in point: 60’s-inspired wears have dominated the runways once again, such as that of Dolce and Gabbana and Jill Stuart. Grab hold of this groovy trend by completing your look with any of these 60’s-reminiscent fashion items.

Geometric Prints

The 60’s is all about psychedelic prints. Geometric and abstract prints were all the rage – even bombshell Brigitte Bardot wore it.

When wearing psychedelic prints, make sure to tone down one piece. Don’t let both items clash!

Bright Colors

This period fashion is particularly wonderful for winter, as it can add brightness to the usual dreary colors.

Color blocking is usually the trend, although these bright hues can be worn with traditional shades (black, beige and navy blue to name a few.)

In stark contrast to the bright hue trend is another 60’s fashion influence: the monochrome. This black and white tandem is anything but boring, as you can mix a variety of patterned, striped and geometric styles.

Plaid is rad – especially when it comes to 60’s fashion. This unique style is great with solid-colored pieces, although it can be rocked with another print as well. Example: the leopard and plaid matching below.

Truly timeless, stripes have been a crucial part of 60’s clothing. Thanks to Audrey Hepburn, this classic style has been deemed the perfect style for all seasons.

Baby Doll Dress

The popularity of the Baby Doll dress can be owed to Carroll Baker, who made the style famous in the same-named movie she starred in. Even though this fashion is likened to lingerie, the ensuing baby doll dress has become a trendy 60’s icon.

Drop Waist Dress

A drop waist dress is another style that reinforces the 60’s aura. Not only is it mod, it can lengthen the torso as well. That’s because this silhouette equalizes the upper and lower trunk. So if you want to look taller in retro, the drop waist dress is for you.
