Under $100: Mad For Mod

Just like your grandmother told you as a child, everything old is new again. Fashion trends from years past always tend to resurface, and one we’re seeing a lot of right now is mod. The swinging sixties are popular for good reason, so it’s easy to understand why designers are embracing this era yet again. Go ahead and paint on a few extra coats of mascara like mod icon Twiggy, and try out these styles for under $100.

While Paula Patton went for the overstated route with her bell-sleeves, there are plenty of more subdued ways to try this trend. Just be careful near candles!

Of course gogo boots were the quintessential footwear of this era, but plenty of sixties style icons wore ladylike slingback shoes, as well. Even better, the style has magical calf-lengthening abilities, as demonstrated by Scarlett Johansson.
