What’s not to love about the sixties? It was the era of experimentation, sex, drugs, and rock and roll— as well as a subculture known as mod. Mod came from the word modernist. At the center of it all was the London fashion scene. Designs from Ossie Clark, Biba, and Mary Quant were de rigueur. Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy, and Marianne Faithfull were style icons.

The mod 1960’s look clearly has an indelible place in fashion and much of the fashion from this era is still very much in style today (just take a look at the amount of sixties-style dresses and bouffants at the Spring/Summer 2013 runway collections).

To get the mod 1960’s look, start with an a-line skirt or dress, like a shift dress. Hemlines were kept short (Mary Quant dared to bare with her mini skirt dresses) or just below the knee. Bright colors or exaggerated patterns were also very much in fashion. Wear it with a pair of opaque tights either white or in a contrasting hue and don’t forget to top it all off with long, doe-like fake lashes and pale pink lipstick.
