With the V&A Museum opening their You Say You Want a Revolution? exhibition and Carnaby Street decorated with the lights inspired by the display, London switches back to the times when mods were the ones who knew what was trendy. And as seen in Paris Fashion Week, the Sixties fashion will make a gentle appearance in clothing stores this coming spring – Prada presented the entire collection using the colours and the prints so popular in the era.
We looked at the shop shelves now to explore the era just in time for Christmas and mulled wine times in Soho – have a look at a few mod-inspired outfit ideas!
Dig out the vintage party dress! Floral, geometric patterns on fabrics cut short for those mini-dresses will feel just right on the Carnaby Street. This mustard dress will look great with some bohemian accessories – like a transition between a mod and a hippie.
A light blouse and tartan plus nice ankle boots and an accessory that will pop out – keep it interesting with a colourful bag. It’s simple, timeless and classy – and the mods agreed to nothing less than elegance.
So many times we would see Twiggy, one of the fashion icons of the sixties, rocking bright colours. But if you want to take it step by step and start with what you’ve got, there’s a way to brighten a plain grey A-line dress up a little – say, with a skinny red scarf and a pair of matching tights.
If you want to step up your colour game, pick a bright dress, long boots, and choose accessories! Pick from wide bangles to plastic earrings or a variety of headbands – that’s what Pattie Boyd would do.
