Mod fashion is one of the most distinguishable of vintage styles thanks to its colorful prints, jaw-dropping hemlines and innovative designs that until the 1960s, had never been considered fashionable before.


The '60s mod girl was a courageous one because she wasn't afraid to explore the "bold" side of dressing. In the 1960s, the quintessential mod look was a colorful abstract print A-line dress with an attached metal buckle belt worn with a pair of colored tights and white or silver boots.
