Mod for the Masses

Pin it

I’ve had a gigantic crush on Twiggy ever since I can remember. When I was ten, I dressed as her for Halloween and spent most of the night distraught that nobody knew who I was. Thus began my love affair with all things mod — a style crush that I’ve still got nowadays, despite the fact that I don’t have a Vespa or date guys who wear only vintage suits.

And I’m convinced that love of mod has a happy medium: a fine-tuned balance between obsessive private screenings of Harold and Maude and traveling in snooty scooter-only circles. ModCulture might just be that medium.

You know it’s true mod because 1) it’s British, 2) it’s full of photos featuring suits and babydolls, and 3) its writers seem to have uncannily good taste in music from the 1960s.

All that said, ModCulture remains super accessible and helpful in its recommendations of everything from where to buy affordable vintage clothes to which movies will put you in that mod state of mind. In other words, it’s a fairly perfect resource for a dabbler such as myself.

Because let’s face it, mod in moderation is pretty irresistibly hot.
