5 PIECES TO MOD-IFY YOUR CLOSET

Our Spring 2015 collection is inspired by the ever-present mod aesthetic of the 1960’s. When designing this fun collection, we channeled the whole mod scene to come up with plenty of platform wedge sandals that could have been worn by Twiggy herself.

Round sunglasses, short shift dresses, bob hairdo’s, nude lips and bold eyelashes; all of these came into play when we styled our spring collection photoshoot. In order to match our shoes to an outfit, we put together a few pieces allowing you to complete your look or if you’re simply looking to update your closet to include some sweet 60’s mod pieces. You don’t have to go full Twiggy, but if you’re looking to incorporate some more pieces, here’s where to start.

1. Shift Dress

Hitting just above the knees with a loose fit, a shift dress lends itself to the quintessential mod-girl silhouette.

2. Polka Dot Accessory

Whether the spots are larger than life or tiny little buttons, polka dots are key to the pervasive color blocking trend. Bonus points if you can find the pattern on a chic headscarf.

3. Rounded Frames

Round frames can work with any face shape…if they’re big enough.

4. Bold Eyelashes

Bold eyelashes, nude lips, and minimal everything else. If you have white eyeliner, apply it to the inner corners and lower lashline for an eye-brightening affect.

5. Platform Shoes

Obviously, you can’t do the sixties without a sleek pair of platform sandals. This gorgeous, strappy wedge in a season-perfect neutral shade is the easiest way to give an outfit a nostalgic sixties mod vibe. The Ava 2.0 wedge in Golden Sand is a perfect compliment to a shift dress, as it elongates the legs with a slight lift. And in a versatile color as this, these wedges will blend in with any bold colorblock or print you choose to pair them with.
