Mod Squad: Shop the Trend

The '60s is a trend we love to see on the runways. Bright, fun and decidedly chic, this look isn't for shrinking violets.

We channeled our inner Mary Quant to find the best mod styles in stores now.

All that's missing are some white boots and a scooter, but we'll leave that to you.

Not quite ready for white go-go boots? Try an achromatic bag instead. This acrylic carrier gives a mod feel, yet is versatile enough to be worn with a more contemporary look, too.

A Chelsea boot is synonymous with mod fashion, but sometimes we just can't forgo a heel. This embossed black leather wedge provides the '60s effect along with that added height.

Finding '60s jewelry that doesn't read Austin Powers can we tricky. Stick with bold Lucite and enamel to keep your look chic and not costumey. This dome ring is one of our favorites.

You can't go full-on mod without bold eyes. That's right, we're talking about false lashes. And the thicker, the better. So, complete your '60s ensemble with this beauty must.
