Modern Mod

January 16, 2014

Mixed Patterns Outfit

 My today's look is based on the 1960s mod style with a modern touch. This A-line dress with geometric bold patterns and pastel colors seemed to be perfect for the look. Instead of wearing the chunky knee-high boots or square-toed loafers that the gals back in the 60s used to wear, I decided to wear a pair of modern stiletto patent pumps. I also wore a striped turtleneck to continue the patterns' vibe and a lighter fabric coat instead of the sturdy peacoat commonly seen on old 60s looks. And last, but not least, the rose pin and matching jewelry, which added a Chanel-like touch. 

Mi estilo de hoy esta basado en los 60s pero con un toque moderno. Mi vestido linea A con estampados geométricos y colores pasteles, me pareció perfecto para un estilo de esa era. Usualmente en los 60s las chicas se ponían botas de tacón grueso y plataformas o zapatillas de punta cuadrada, pero yo me puse un par de tacones actuales para darle el toque moderno. Para continuar en el mismo estilo de estampados, me puse mi cuello de tortuga rayado y un abrigo de tela delgado envés de un grueso de lana, los cuales eran muy comunes en los años 60s. Y para finalizar mi estilo, me puse un prendedor de rosa y joyas que le concordaran con la intención de darle un toque de Chanel. Espero que les guste.

    Me encanta tu revamp de los looks sesenteros! Es muy classy y el abrigo ligero lo hace muy chic. Me gusta que hayas hecho un pequeño mix de estampados con el turtle neck y como el broche le da ese aire classy de Chanel que adoro, vas guapísima!

  2. Oh love it, bright pattern with the black. Just the right length on the coat. This is what I should have done with my patterned dress coat wise. Striped top and pin are a nice touch.
