Costumes and accessories from the 60s are known for two contrasting fashions: mod and hippie. The mods wore go-go boots, dresses with short skirts, and big bold jewelry. Hippies, on the other hand, were known for their tie-dyes, peace signs, psychedelic designs, and flowers. Mod fashion rose out of a British sub-culture that centered around R&B influenced rock music, dancing, and fashion. Guys wore fancy clothes and the girls wore short dresses. Tall go-go boots became popular, the first time women wore boots for fashion. You'll love our selection of go-go boots for your mod costume. There's fun sunglasses and lots of mod jewelry too, like big earrings and bangle bracelets.
