Mod Men (See Jane Watch)
I was one of those people who had been waiting with bated breath for the Mad Men season 5 premiere after an excruciating 18 month hiatus. I've been obsessed with the show since it debuted in 2007 and have definitely enjoyed watching the characters, as well as the styles, evolve over the years. The show has resumed in 1966; it seems the stiff, 1950's influence has vanished completely and the swinging 60s are in full force. I'm loving the bright colors, vivid prints, plaid sportcoats, mod dresses and exaggerated lashes. I found a Vogue cover from 1966, which perfectly exemplifies the times; conversely, I displayed some wild prints that I'm seeing from designers today. Are you open to the mod trend (again)?
