Trying on different trends can be a fun way to experiment with fashion and discover what your style should be like. Therefore, I thought of sharing with you a small series of what I call a "Trend Challenge". Each month, I'll try on one of the season's hottest trends and create 3 looks based on it. This time, it's obviously about the 60s Mods. 

Inspired by the cool kids on the block, the so-called Mods, this trend brings back everything that was fashionable at the time: vinyl boots, A-line mini skirts and dresses, Mary Jane shoes and turtleneck tops. Of course, you need to give up on the 60s make-up (unless you prepare for Halloween), but you can easily stick to all retro accessories and clothes. If you prefer a more contemporary version of this trend, mix one or two items with something basic. For example, add a pair of Mary Jane shoes to a simple top and jeans outfit or wear the turtleneck with trousers and sporty shoes.

I'm wearing: H&M Studio AW15 top and turtleneck collar, Claudia Castrase skirt, H&M belt and Zara shoes || Stefanel turtleneck sweater, Zara trousers, H&M Studio AW15 sandals || H&M Studio AW15 vest and dress, Mohito trousers, Bata sandals.

You all know I'm trying to keep my wardrobe to a minimal level and buy only basics: jackets, jeans, shirts, nothing too extravagant or which would easily get outdated, but bags and shoes are the only exceptions I make. The trendier, the better, I'd say. This season I have my eyes on the croco pattern bags, which would go perfect with a pair of vinyl boots and that classic jeans and jacket combo.
