..Mod about You..

In the 60s “mod” was about as edgy as it got. The details, patterns, and makeup of 60s mod styling turned everyday looks into statements. The perfect combination of edgy and chic can still be achieved today by adding the right retro touches to any otherwise ordinary look.

You’ll notice that these looks have a rather basic foundation: white, black and patterned /print combinations of the two- you can start by using any such items you already own and pair them together different ways (use these photos as inspiration) and then slowly start adding pieces with color. 
Focus on Hair and makeup as they make huge contributions to styling. 
Accessories like gloves, hats and earrings can also add a slight 60s vibe to even office attire.

Of course if you need further inspiration just watch Charade or a Bardot flick. ;) Have a lovely day everyone!
