Get the look: 60's Mod Style

Feb 26, 2012

The Mod style of the early 1960's can be summed up in three words: geometry, color and accessories.

Geometry

Stripes, lines, squares, circles and rectangles are big, bold and well-defined. There’s nothing puffy or flowery in this look! The look is slim and streamlined in the form miniskirts, sheath dresses and long trench coats.

Color

A single bright color that pops in bright hues like yellow, orange, red, hot pink and green, coordinated from head to toe, is a trend now known as “color blocking”. Or, choose to wash out all the color and go for thick black and white stripes, horizontal or vertical, your choice.

Accessories

The important third point of this triangle of fashion is the accessories. Big, round glasses, a thick black belt, a thick, long head scarf (color coordinated with the outfit) tied loosely like a headband, a chunky gold bracelet and a long, necklace with a large pendant complete the look. Nothing about these accessories is small.

Past and Present Style Icons

Fashion icons of the early 1960’s include British Supermodel Twiggy, inventor of the miniskirt Mary Quant, and First Lady Jackie Kennedy. Recently, you’ve seen the Mod 60’s style showcased in movies like The Help, the TV show Mad Men, on Pippa Middleton, (sister of princess Kate), and often on Zooey Deschanel of the new hit TV show New Girl.

The late 1960’s saw the rise of the Hippie movement, which led to the Boho Chic style of flowing dresses, mix-and-match prints and lots of layers.  Learn more about how to get the updated Bohemian look.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

My dog, Loki, was old and had cancer. He was 14. My mom healed one of his cancer spots but not even a month later, she put him down. He had life in him. He played like a puppy. If she healed one spot, why couldnt she heal the rest? He could have lived right? He was like my little brother, I loved him like one. He was family. Every since he passed, Ive been depressed. Losing weight and not wanting to go out and hangout with friends. Me and my mom get into fights more. At some points, I hate her for what she did. I dont dare tell anyone about my depression and I cry every night until 3:30 am. I have considered cutting but I dont want anyone to judge me. Im not going to but I just want someone to understand what his loss did to my heart. Ive had him since i was a baby. He was my best friend. And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help? I was mad. Can anyone relate? Can someone help me? ( im not going to a therapist btw ) UGH WHAT DO I DO?!

 No. Nope. Uh-uh! If he's trying to force you to do something you don't want to, like That, then i suggest you walk away. Say "no" plain and simple, and let him know what you think of that stuff.
