Geometric patterns – the 60s mod look was a combination of a lot of things and one of the things that stand out among these is the print pattern that consists of geometrical shapes and lines. Florals, polka dots, stripes and all that jazz were, somehow, just in the background during the mod period and geometric patterns were front and center when it came to print styles.
Boxy silhouettes – as with any look, balance is what makes the mod trend fab and stylish and, since you already have all your bright, bold and loud colors to make up the most of your look’s color palette, one way to achieve balance in the mod look now is to wear simple, boxy silhouettes. This will keep the whole outfit looking sane and wearable.
Vintage accessories – of course, they weren’t considered vintage at the time but if you’re doing the mod look today, the accessories that completed the look back in the day are essential. Round sunglasses, capes, knee-high boots, tights, and funky chunky jewelry – these are just some of the accessories you’ll need for a mod look.
