Trend Watch Wednesday: Mod Squad

Happy Wednesday, dolls! Before we start talking trends, I just have to say something....it's 65 degrees outside! Apparently the good Lord has heard our prayers for some relief from this heat. I walked out to my car this morning to leave from work and almost caught a chill....it was heaven. I think the high is supposed to be somewhere in the mid-80's today, which is just pure bliss to me. Could this be a sign of cooler weather on the horizon for good? I sure hope so!

The crisp weather makes me even more excited to write about today's featured trend, the Mod look.

60's Mod will be all the rage this fall, so start stocking up on clunky rings, shift dresses and Peter Pan-collared tops. Miu Miu's Fall 2010 RTW collection was totally 60's themed and I loved it in an "I'll never actually wear this, but it would look cool on the cover of a magazine" way.

For obvious reasons, it made me think of icons like Twiggy and Edie Segwick.

To create your own Mod look this season, aim for big, baubbly cocktail rings, straight-cut mini-shift dresses, cardigans with rosette detailing and square, structural bags in colors like bright poppy yellow, grass green, shiny black or lavender. It's important to remember however that if you do attempt this look, do it subtly. Light touches of Mod, like a piece of jewelry or 60's inspired bag. Otherwise, you'll risk looking like you stepped off the set of an Austin Powers movie : )

What say you about the Mod trend? Think you'll be willing to channel your inner Twiggy or Edie this fall? I'll probably sit this one out for the most part, but I'm dying to hear what you beautiful ladies have to say about it!

Be blessed, lovelies-

  1. the mod look is one of my favs! twiggy is a classic fashion idol :) fabulous blog.


  2. I think you definitely have to LOOK like Twiggy to rock this look... and I do not :) But I love the accessories!

  3. whoa, I'll admit, I'm not so sure I can fully commit to this trend. While I've always been amazed with Twiggy (young Twiggy anyways) I think I may leave it to her to pull this one off. It's just not for me... but if you can wear it with confidence, then rock on!! :)

  4. I like Twiggy's outfit the best!! But that yellow is cute too.

  5. This is going to have to grow on me :)

  6. I totally love the mod look. If only I had the guts to chop my hair into a pixie cut!
