#7: Colorful Swing Coats
Swing coats aren’t an invention of the ’60s (you can find ’50s styles too), but wearing a brightly colored coat was a trend of mod fashion indicative of the era’s penchant for the bold and the bright.
Color blocking was another trend born out of mod fashion. Wearing a solid colored swing coat (like a candy colored pink, a Kermit the frog green or a powder blue) with a contrasting colored dress and tights beneath was how a mod would spread her colorful feathers come wintertime.
