Creatures of the Wind, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein
The sixties mod look has been evolving for a few years now and I never get sick of it. Bright candy colors, classic shapes with a mod twist, funky florals and geometrics, it is all so fun! The jeans and t-shirt look below is the perfect look for me to wear on a Closet Makeover day.
Pair a short a-line dress with block-heeled boots, add some python print and a turtleneck and you have the modern version of a true Sixties look.

Of course, the short hemlines of the Sixties won’t be welcome in your office. A peter-pan collar will give you the Sixties vibe, but sticking to a monochrome palette keeps it grown up. Short boots and opaque tights keep a longer skirt from looking dowdy and balance out the sweetness of the peter-pan collar.
