Hello lovelies! We’re back again to share more of our favorite fashions with you. Remember in September when we gushed about our love of the ‘70s and all things bohemian? Well, today we’re taking it back a decade to talk about our new fave for the fall – mod style.
Born out of London in the 1960s, the mod movement was all about redefining cool. The British had invaded and this look caught on in the U.S. as well. Mod style was characterized by boyish or masculine inspired clothing with clean lines, bold colors, and geometric patterns. Think of women with short haircuts and long legs strolling down busy city streets. And of course, the mod movement gave way to the infamous mini skirt which is still popular today.
Inspired by our love for mod fashion, we here at Poetic Licence decided to incorporate its influence into our fall line with the TOUNG IN CHEEK booties. Tapered in all the right places, these booties have a snug, feminine fit that’s oh-so chic. In true ‘60s fashion, this style features a thick, cupped heel and a square toe shape. These sweet little booties can be worn with tights for that true mod look, or they can make the perfect finishing touch to your favorite outfits from this century – like jeans and a tee-shirt. Whatever your style, if you’re looking for a comfy pair of basic booties, the TOUNG IN CHEEK are the ones for you!
See how our model has styled these booties in the pictures below.
Wanna try the mod look? It’s actually super simple. Look for tailored clothes with clean lines and strong shapes. Bright colors and bold patterns are also a staple of mod fashion, so you’ll want to seek them out when putting your look together. Consider the mini skirt and patterned sweater combo, dresses and shirts with peter pan collars, nude or neutral tones for makeup, and of course, a stylin’ pair of sunnies.
