The Modern Era

“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist”

-Pablo Picasso

 

Hello my lovelies!

 

I’ve been on a blue kick. Blue eyeshadow, blue lips, blue clothing, all of it. While I’m well aware that the Pantone color of the year is ultraviolet, I couldn’t help but notice its somewhat closely related cousin, Jacaranda.

This jumpsuit is 100% not the same color, and I’m completely aware of that, but ever since I posted A Dose of Color, I’ve been on a bright hue rampage that will not stop anytime soon.

I’ve also been admiring structural outfits so much more lately. I am a perfectly proud owner of structural handbags, but I had never really explored structural fashion outside of Kate Spade. I know, structural fashion sounds an awful lot like a reference to those objectively horrible cage-like outfits you see on the runway, and frankly, you’re not entirely wrong.

Honestly why

 

While I am obviously not emulating this directly in today’s look, I wanted to take away the modern-yet-vintage feel from this strange contraption of an outfit, and apply it to something I can wear every day. More accurately, I wanted to give my take on 1960’s mod style, which in my opinion, can be one of the hardest vintage styles to pull off.

When I think of the 60’s, I think of flower power, the free love movement, and casual yet systematic racism. I don’t necessarily think of the 60’s when I look to different decades for runway inspiration, because the typical poster girl for fashion at that time is generally not a style I would prefer to pull inspo from.

Case en point

 

When I was first doing research to figure out what to even call today’s look, I panicked upon seeing this image. This is not what I wanted. I wanted Twiggy with a little more sustenance. I wanted obnoxious color and rule-bending attire, not stepford-wife-meets-Jackie O.

And then, I found these complete and utter gems:

Much like the fashion cage above, these are objectively terrible. Also like the fashion cage, it’s something I can work with. Always remember that something beautiful can be born out of something as completely insane as 60’s Mod.

 

What’s your favorite decade for style inspiration?
