Hi, I'm Erin, and I'm a fashion stylist. Sixties mod style is a huge trend this season. From Peter Pan collars to geometric shapes, to shift dresses. Shift or mod dresses are fabulous and fun but you definitely need to know how to style them. Let me show you one simple modern option. Our model Heather is wearing a vintage blue wool shift dress. Notice the shift has a subtle A line shape to it. That silhouette is easy to wear because it's flattering on most body types. You can see the cut gives her some dimension without drowning her figure. It's also a great shape for women like Heather who are slightly bottom curvy. That means that they are larger in the hip, butt, and thigh area. The A line shape conceals that problem area. It's also an ideal silhouette for women who are busty. That slight flare creates balance and proportion. The bow accentuates her slim waist and adds just the right amount of femininity. I paired this dress with a basic black long sleeve turtleneck. The black sleeves are slimming and practical in cooler weather since they'll help keep you warm. To keep our model looking tall I put her in some solid black tights. They also provide warmth and coverage. These tights were five bucks by the way from one of my favorite stores Target. Target has great hosiery and all kinds of fun patterns and colors. Now for shoes. Heather is wearing some great black platform shoedies. That's a sandal, bootie combination which really adds some edge. To finish off this Twiggyess mod look some simple studs and and eye catching cocktail ring.
