For fall/winter fashion, you´ll see the comeback of the 60´s swing trend. Many designer collections have embraced this trend whether it´s a traditional or a more modern take. The `girl with the black tights`, Edie Sedgwick is your ultimate style icon when it comes to mod life fashion. She wore tights literally with everything – with shift dresses and long t-shirts. Don´t be afraid to channel her style with vivid pops of bright colors, patterns, leather pieces, Houndstooth, and yes, go heavy with the eye makeup!

Mod Life Shift Dresses

When it comes to swinging 60´s, shift dresses are first on the list. On warmer fall days, wear the dress as is finished with a pair of wedged/studded boots or peep-toe platforms. Once the wind turns chilly, layer up your dress with thick tights and throw over the new season masculine shaped tailored blazers or coats.

Mod Life Disco Theme
To add some spice on your moddy, twiggy look, create a disco theme combo. It´s all about that bright, shiny and tight disco pants. Amp it up with a rusty, orange and black striped blazer with long sleeves and a button-less design. Wear under your blazer a sexy, black and cropped under. And of course, finish off with those black ankle boots for a super trendy look.

Mod Life Edgy Look
Vest, Skirt, Bag, Necklace, Boot
The younger you are, the edgier you want to look. If you´re that type, then this style is for you. Play up with black and white, skater designs, plus (beaded) signs, studded/spiked and lots of black! To start with, get yourself a striking black skater skirt, it´s swingy, to team with a white vest and ankle boot. If it´s chilly, layer it up with black tights and black leather jacket. Add a black bag and a black spiked necklace for a very of-the-moment take on the 60s trend.
