Before it was hot to be “hot”, the term cool was prevalent among the London born 1960’s crowd. As music evolved into a sultrier R&B, reggae, British pop vibration the clothing was all about symmetry. The 60’s Mod Scene was for the “cool” crowd.
Motel Rock’s black and white striped collection is all about the modern mod in its ready to wear collection. The bonus is these featured pieces are under $100. The Autumn 2013 collection features three key pieces. Work them into your fall wardrobe as stand alone statement pieces or use them to balance a bold bright pop of color or texture for a chic fashion forward look. With such a basic backdrop don’t be afraid to spice it up with funky accessories, like an oversized clutch or stacks upon stacks of bangles.
Headed to a late night art show? Pick from two figure hugging Motel dresses from this collection to channel your inner Warhol. The Maybeline Dress [$70] sees huge horizontal stripes and offers a sexy silhouette, thigh high hemline, and turtle neck detail. Throw your hair up in a sexy teased pony tail and bold smoky eye for a chic evening look. Or take the look vertical in the Petal Dress [$70] that offers a shift silhouette and round neck detail. Paired with a shimmering gold sequined clutch, you won’t have to think twice about your next evening outfit.
For those who want to match Motel’s stripes with their favorite new sweater, the Aleka Skirt [$50] is the perfect choice. This micro mini skirt with full length exposed silver back zipper fits like a glove. Whether paired with tights for a more conservative look, or styled with your favorite Doc Martins, the Aleka Skirt will help you complete your Mod 60’s outfit homage.
