1960s Trends for Spring

The whole Mod 1960s fashion story is huge for Spring 2013. From the shift dresses, mini skirt lengths, geometric prints, kitten heels, cat eye sunnies, bold color and the black and white color story seen on so many runway shows the 60s is here to stay. For this season at least. The slightly shrunken, doll like proportions of the 60s evoke a feminine and playful vibe.

Accessories should be bold, colorful, architectural and stand out.  This is the easiest and most cost conscious way to follow any trend in a big way.  When styling yourself with accessories, they should really highlight your outfit and be the final piece of telling your story for the day. If you go the other route and want your accessories to be the focal point, my mantra is to go big or go home. Have fun and go a little crazy and stack on as much as you can!
