Fashion Forward: 1960's Mod Fashion
It's an old look that's back in style... From Marc Jacobs to Michael Kors for Celine, 1960's inspired clothes are the hottest trend on the runways this fall. Tonight, we'll take you Fashion Forward and shows you how everyone's mad for mod.
(WSVN) -- It's the shagadelic style in Austin Powers.
A flash back to the Beatles.
And when it comes to being Fashion Forward, it's a mod, mod world out there.
Elise Fiedelman of Arden B. says, "I think it really came from England or London back in the 60's and it's fun, it's just something different and really trendy to wear."
At Arden B. -- mod, as in the mod squad, that 1960's TV show -- is a must have for fall.
Whether it's a polka dotted tube dress...
A striped shirt...
A funky 1960's print...
Or a checkered top, the look is all about bold colors and lots of detail.
Elise says, "A lot of black and red and white graphic prints, shift dresses, patent leather, a lot of little details like this, the little rings, zippers."
Motorcycle jackets are big too.
Pair it with some funky geometric jewelry, lots of plastic bangles, or a fun silver necklace... To take the look from day to night.
Elise says, "I wouldn't wear mod head to toe, I would wear one piece with a simple piece, like a sweater that's mod inspired with a pair of jeans or black pants."
Head over to Wet Seal at Bayside, for some 60's spirit.
"Check out" this black and white sleeveless dress.
Or try a more conservative look.
Or "go, go" all out in this micro mini dress.
Don't forget to top it all off with a hat.
Elizabeth DiPace of Wet Seal says, "Hats are in and they're in to stay it looks like. Cabbie hats, bucket hats, definitely look for leather."
Get in the mood for mod at Burdines, where designers, like Marc Jacobs have added a splash of color to their designs.
Whether you're more Jackie O...
Or motorcycle babe... You've got to go mod this fall.
Melissa Goff of Burdines says, "They just devote a fun, fresh feeling. Bright colors, a lot of contrast, oversize detailing with a lot of buttons."
There's also plenty of mod at Saks Fifth Avenue, which kicks off its' Key To The Cure Charity Shopping Weekend on Wednesday.
Part of this week's sales will benefit cancer research.
