Mad for Mod

Want an edgier look? Stylize your final weeks of summer with a nod to the mod squad.

This trend originated in London, England, peaking in the early to mid-1960s, with multiple resurgences since. There’s no denying why this trend continues to pop up on runways and this season, there’s no better time to give the look at try. If you’re looking to change up your style, opt for a breezy shift dress to beat the Ottawa heat and pair the look with bright accessories. This mod look has morphed from an underground style to a more commercialized fashion, complete with miniskirts, bold graphic prints.

Modernize the trend by taking a page from the looks seen on the Michael Kors, Moschino and Louis Vuitton runways.  Whether you take on the styling of Louis Vuitton with the checked print, or stick with one hue – like a bright pop of yellow as seen on the Michael Kors runway for the spring/summer collection.

Need inspiration? Look no further than Edie Sedgwick, Peggy Moffitt, Jean Shrimpton or Leslie Lawson (Twiggy). Sarah Smithers, Winners Fashion Spokesperson says “Edie Sedgwick’s iconic mod style is having a moment with short and sweet shift dresses, cute kitten heels and oversized sunglasses topping spring must-have lists.”  You’ll be mad for mod before you know it.
