Mod Purple and White Polka Dot Maxi Wrap Skirt, 1970s
The Mod style is one of the most iconic fashion eras. Rising in the late 1950s to 1960s, the Mod style grew out of the rising British youth culture and were characterized by juvenile silhouettes, and soft coordinated colors. The Mod style is emblematic of an easy cool and a carefree lifestyle.
This midi length jersey wrap skirt features a polka-dot print of lavender, lilac, and royal purple dots trimmed in white on a black ground. The chunky dot shapes are reminiscent of the headlights on the iconic Mod Vespa motor scooters that likely inspired this 1970s design.
The front of the skirt and the waistband are bordered in a royal purple that provides necessary balance as the dot pattern snakes across the skirt in a dynamic diagonal route. Additionally, the wild print is made more extreme by the waist pleats that impart an additional layer of undulation to the design. With a rather straight silhouette, this skirt mixes classic lines with a vibrant monochromatic print.
