How I wear the 60's Mod Trend


Hey guys,

Tonight's post is all about one of my favourite trends of the moment, the 60s mod trend! I've picked up soo many lovely 60's style pieces recently (mainly from Topshop) - so here's a look at how I've been styling them :)

Geometric Printed Skater Skirt





Grey Crop Top - £26 Topshop / Printed Skater Skirt - Topshop / Beige Fedora Hat - Primark /  Bracelets - £3 Primark / Brown Boots - £24.99 New Look / Gold Hex Pearl Necklace - £7.99 New Look

Now I'm already a huuuuge fan of the skater skirt (since they're so comfy & also pretty good at hiding unwanted tummy podge!), so when I saw this adorable geometric printed one in Topshop I had to purchase. I felt very 60's in this outfit, and I love how well the hex necklace goes with the skirt to create a cute retro look.

High Neck Jaquared Top



High Neck Circle Jacquard Top - £34 Topshop / Denim Joni Jeans - Topshop / Purple Bag - £7 Primark / Gold Hex Pearl Necklace - £7.99 Newlook / Dark Brown Boots - Boohoo (bought last year)

I fell in love with this top when I saw it in Topshop recently. Sure I may look a little bit like I giant bumble bee in it, but you can't deny it's a super cute print! I styled it with some Topshop Joni jeans for a casual & comfy look - perfect for this autumn weather. 

Alternatively if you're feeling in more of a fancy mood, you can dress the top up with some heels & a skirt for a less casual look.



 High Neck Circle Jacquard Top - £34 Topshop / Black Scuba Flippy Skirt - £25 Topshop / Black Strappy Heels - £19.99 New Look / Daisy Necklace - £7.99 New Look

Monochrome Dot Tile Treggings





Last but not least are these awesome monochrome "treggings" from Topshop. They're so comfy and I loveee the print. Another mod item making my wardrobe look like something from a 60's film set! 

You don't have to go for a super retro look with these treggings, as they're actually quite versatile and can even be styled into a more edgier/modern outfit. I also styled them with a leather jacket & some black chunky boots. 


Dot Tile Monochrome Treggings - £28 Topshop / Burgundy Laser Cut Scallop Top - £14.99 New Look / Black Chunky Boots - £19.99 New Look / Black Bag - £25 Missguided / Silver Statement Necklace - £5 Primark

And that's all for tonight. I'll love you & leave with you a nice bit of food porn in the form of this mornings breakfast! Brioche french toast, fresh fruit & maple syrup from Leeds' lovely ls6 cafe - so good! :) 



Hope you have a lovely week! 

Gabby xoxo
