Now hear me out. It doesn't mean I go for the flat out bloke look, I still try to keep it feminine. I just think that a lot of the boys stuff looks smarter. My favourite thing to wear on a normal day is a button down shirt. I will usually be found in men's section of the local charity shops searching for these things. There's just something about them that looks instantly smart, even on a 17 year old girl.
Ok crap shots I know, but you try taking a pic of your collar without wrinkling it.
I rarely wear tousers, and never wear jeans because they don't invole a lot of thought. Anyone can throw on a pair and go out but the Mod way of life is not to be anyone, but to be someone. And as we all know,
"If you cant be someone, you might as well jump in the ocean and drown." - Jimmy, Quadrophenia.
Even on days where I'm just popping out to the shops, I'll still find a skirt. Mini skirts are essential and I prefer to keep mine to black and grey, so that my shirt/Jacket/shoes really stand out.
I love the belt in this pic too. I tell everyone it an official Lambretta belt, but it was a quid from Primark.
So a lovely button down tucked into a skirt, finished off with Chelsea boots and a Harrington, looks pretty damn smart in my books.
Are there any other Modern Modettes out there? How do you dress? What style influences yours the most?
