Make a mod fashion statement with swing dresses. These '60s-inspired dresses hit above the knee and feature a distinct loose cut from the shoulders down. This makes them both very comfortable and flattering for any body type. Find short dresses from RACHEL Rachel Roy and others.
When it comes to simple, unbroken colors and patterns, pullover dresses are a fantastic choice. Choose a pullover in the swing style with a wide neckline like a scoopneck for a quick and easy dressing option.
Prefer higher necklines but still want the convenience of a pullover? Swing dresses are also available in pullover halter neck styles. Just slip the dress over your head and fasten the neckline with a single snap at the back—simple, fast and stylish.
Styling short dresses is easy. Above the knee dresses in the swing style work with any pants or leggings that are slim fitting. For bright color-blocked dresses that have the true mod look, a pair of vibrant tights will make heads turn. Try pairing a pink dress with bright yellow tights and chunky black platform pumps. Want a more subtle style? Slip into a dark blue dress in the swing style and a pair of white jeggings. Finish the ensemble with a pair of cork heel wedge sandals.
Striped dresses are a longtime-favorite option to wear casually. A dark blue and white striped swing dress with a pair of canary yellow tights makes a delightful street outfit. Play up the mod look with dramatic makeup, teased hair and short black boots. For warmer weather, opt for a striped dress and a pair of white shorts with strappy gladiator sandals.
For a versatile option, choose a sleeveless dress. Depending on what shoes, jewelry and accessories you include, these dresses can be worn at formal occasions or as casual clothing. A halter top can look dressier when worn with chandelier earrings, sparkly evening sandals and an elegant clutch. For casual wear, slip into denim shorts, red high top sneakers and colorful chunky jewelry. Put hair in a high ponytail or another playful style—wide hair bands are also great for mod looks.
