Do you own a MOD dress?

You've probably seen these geometric shaped dresses all over the runways last season and all over the streets now. If you have no idea what's the hype about, here is a little bit of history of the Mod dresses.

From http://www.thefreedictionary.com: An unconventionally modern style of fashionable dress originating in England in the 1960s. A youth subculture that began in London in the early 1960s; a working-class movement with highly stylized dress and short hair; listened to rhythm and blues music and travelled on motor scooters

From http://www.fiftiesweb.com:
Color played a big role in defining the look. The muted and pastel palette of Fifties fashions gave way to bright, bold color often splayed in geometric patterns. From daywear to Day Glo in less than a decade. A word about the word - Mod. Mod for modern, which in its purest use meant minimalist. Arguably there is nothing minimal about most Mod fashion, but that is the origin.

Hope now you know a little more and give Mod a try now. The great thing about the Mod comeback that it couldn't look more fresh these days. It's a much needed break we needed from the floral unshaped boho chic, so embrace your inner Mod! My best Mod dresses picks below, hopefully this will help in your choice. I tried to give different price range options, so if you don't want to spend big $$$ for a one season trend, you don't have to. But remember - Mod dresses will always make a comeback, they are just a timeless piece that I'm sure your kids and grandkids will wear.
