Clara's 1965 Mod Dress

This week, we'll move up a decade to 1965. In reaction to the  form fitting shapes, lace and ribbons, decorations, and wide skirts of the 50s, designers started a new style for fashion. London was the center of the new Mod (short for modernist) fashion movement.

Mod fashion was characterized by clean, loose-fitting lines, and geometric shapes. Unique collars were also a characteristic of Mod fashion. Bright colors and bold fabric patterns were quite fashionable.

Clara’s dress follows the Mod style with a fitted waist, a scalloped collar, and a simple bow for decoration.

Simple ballet flats were a versatile choice for footwear.

And finally, a very typical sixties-style haircut finishes off Clara’s outfit.
