Get The Look: Modern Day Mod

posted in Fashion
  • 1. Colours

    Know the colors. The Mod style focuses on color blocking, black and white, and hints of bright yellow, orange, pink, and pastels. Bold, geometric patterns like English Flags, polka-dots and stripes were all popular.

  • 2. Styles

    Remember to reject 1950s fashion. The Mod style is the antithesis of the feminine, "poodle-skirt" fashion. It rarely pulls any trend, if any at all from the 1950s. Instead the mod style features form-fitting clothing, unisex styles and bold patterns.

  • 3. Hair and Makeup

    Wear short hair and dramatic eye makeup. The Twiggy-style make up of large eyes is a great fashion statement. Women can apply heavy eyeliner and false eyelashes.
    Reject most other make up like blush and eye shadow. Nude lipstick is good.
    Pale skin can look good; don't tan.

  • 4. Get classic Mod female outfits.

    Try sleeveless tops and big sweaters. Mod shirts are usually 3/4-length sleeves or sleeveless. Loose sweaters are also a big fashion statement.
    Look for fitted pants. Fitted ankle or capri pants are also characteristic of the mod fashion.
    Break out the mini-skirts. Mod skirts are short or mini-length. Short, shift or A-line dresses with bold, geometric Mod patterns are common for the mod style.

  • 5. Shoes and Accessories

    Try chunky shoes. Chunky patent leather knee/ankle-high boots, loafers or clogs in a variety of colors. Go-Go boots are also a fashion icon.
    Top things off with accessories: Scarves, bold jewelry, headbands, and big sunglasses inspired by modern art accentuate the look.
    Finally wear sturdy coats for foggy London weather. Peacoats and rain trench coats are a popular this look.
