His and Hers Style: 60s Mod

60s Mod
The 1960s is by far my favorite decade to draw inspiration from.  The period had such distinct fashion, and I’m very much drawn to the counter-culture styles that developed, especially those that derived from Mod style. The musical roots for 60s Mod subculture came from rocksteady, reggae, northern soul, and ska.  This largely music-based subculture with its affinity for Fred Perry attire, skinny jeans, and Doc Martens continues to be influential.  I’d love to snatch up some of the pieces above for my own wardrobe.

Isaac- Plaid Shirt + Boots + Cuffed Jeans

Had to snap a few shots of this well-dressed classmate.  A plaid shirt is a simple and classic menswear staple.  Isaac paired his with cuffed jeans, dark brown boots and a tan book bag, which originally belonged to his grandfather.

Cassandra- Vintage dress + Bow-Detail Flats + Red Cardigan

Delighted to Spot Casandra near Wheeler Hall, wearing a unique polka-dot and striped dress paired with a red cardigan and bow-detail flats.  Dresses are great go-to pieces when on a time crunch, and can be easily layered depending on the weather.  Love one of a kind vintage finds!

Hamilton- Chukka Boots + Cuffed Jeans + Plaid Shirt

Loving the cuffed-up jean look and it seems I'm not alone.  I've been seeing it all over campus.  Hamilton paired his with an on point haircut and tan chukka boots.

Jessica: Chambray Top + Skinnies + Combat Boots

This chambray shirt is one of my current go-to pieces.  Love pairing it with cuffed up dark wash skinnies and combat boots.  I've been looking for a replacement crossbody bag for some time now, and was so excited to find this leather Cambridge Satchel at Crossroads.

Julie - Black Skinnies + Doc Martens + Jean Jacket

Loving everything about this ensemble: the black cuffed up skinnies paired with the denim jacket, and especially the Doc Martins! With Berkeley's frequent overcast weather, these boots can be worn year round.

Lothilde- Leather Jacket + Gold Heel Flats + Cuffed-Up Jeans

Spotted this French international student near Wheeler Hall.  Loved her cuffed up jeans and the gold accents on both her leather motorcycle jacket and ballet-style flats.

Shelby: Stripes + Gold Accessories + Combat Boots + Blazer

Jenny- Jean Jacket + Tribal Print Top + Gray Combat Boots

Jenny is wearing some of the my current go to styles: tribal prints and combat boots.  She pairs them with a a jean jacket and cat-eye sunglasses, which happen to be my favorite style of shades.

Alex - Maxi Dess + Pop of Yellow

Maxi dresses, especially in a lovely print, are perfect for these strangley warm October days.  The flowly silouette is both comfortable and flattering, with a belt accentuating the wastline.  Definetly a staple piece that can easily transition into the fall...whenever it arrives.
