The Mod Squad
The swinging London look goes new millennium.
GETTING “TWIGGY” with the ’60s vibe is no easy task. The trick to looking as modern as you do mod is to avoid going too literal with the trend. Take a nod from Louis Vuitton and liberally work an oversized graphic print— particularly if the color scheme includes lemony-citron and vivid white. With Twiggy as your fashion inspiration, a shorter hemline is also an appropriate homage to the decade—think of micro miniskirts and modest crop tops as the new way to show a little skin. In terms of jewelry, you’ll get tons of mileage out of geometric bangles, which will still be on-trend well after the mod fad has faded away. In contrast, feminine earrings are the perfect antidote to a classic, structured mod silhouette that will keep you looking “groovy baby,” yet far out of “Austin Powers” doppelganger territory.
