Mod chic to rival the '60s pin ups

If you're anything like me, an avid lover of all things sixties, you'll adore the moddish style of the ladies of the time. Clean lines, huge love of monogram colours and slick bobs were all the rage and it's undeniable that, looking back at photos of Twiggy and her peers, they looked amazing.

Pay homage to the look with this easy to wear outfit, with a definite '60s mod edge. The black dress is from Oli, with long sleeves, a mid thigh hem and high neck it's perfect. I love the nipped in waist detailing which lends a tailored structure to the silhouette. I've teamed this simple dress with contrasting white accessories to turn heads.

The white tights were a definite '60s staple for young girls with fashion sense. This pair are from Figleaves and are the perfect side of opaque. Trust me girls, try these on and you'll believe me, white tights look great!

Next up is the leather waist belt from Elegantly Waisted. Wrap this long leather belt round the waist one more time to get rid of that ribbon style tie and keep the clean lines of mod looking perfect. Finish the look with some oversized white shades, no matter what the weather. This perfect pair are from Dita and top off an outfit that's sultry and sexy without showing an inch of bare flesh.
