In the early-to-mid-1960s, the London Modernists, young art students and musicians known as the Mods were shaping and defining popular fashion for British youth tired of stuffy English fashion.
The Single Girl model, such as Twiggy, represented this ‘movement’. She was young, single, active, and economically self-sufficient. People were dressing in artful, graphic and psychedelic prints, fun highlighter colors, and mismatched patterns. It was a decade that broke many fashion traditions, mirroring social movements during the time. In the middle of the decade, culottes, go-go boots, easy, box-shaped dresses were popular. Mary Quant popularized the mini skirt, and Jackie Kennedy introduced the pillbox hat, both becoming extremely popular.
I have always loved the freedom and comfort of the shift dress. it's all about a great print on an easy shape! we have brought our shift into the new mod era by adding a cold shoulder detail and fun, tie cuff. add sandals or boots depending on the temperature. top with a shawl or cardigan over your shoulders to finish the look. boho gals….add a floppy hat! from the beach to the dance floor….OH BEHAVE!
Have your own throwback to the 60's with Loco Lindo's Mod Shift Dress. This was a time for modern lines and simple, unencumbered fashion. Psychedelic prints and fun patterns reigned on these basic canvases. Keep your accessories clean & easy too. Wear with ballet flats or stacked sandals. Knee high boots look great with this style also. Show off those legs!!
