My Fashion Statements is a fashion diary that aims to encourage every Tina, Drew, and Harriet to step out of that comfort zone by taking fashion risks without being afraid to raise a few eyebrows. This blog challenges conventions and commands conversations about the latest fashion news and style trends flooding the magazines and social media spheres. Fashion has a voice and we are the interpreters. You decide how you want to tell your story. After all, fashion rules are made to be broken.
After months of deliberation, I finally decided to start watching Mad Men in its final season. For the past two months, I've fallen in love with Don Draper's bad boy charm and Roger Sterling's clever, nay silly, sense of humour. I stumbled into the world of 60s fashion and it became my new favourite fashion era. Inspired by Betty Francis' classy two piece suits, Megan Draper's sexy shift dresses, and even Sally Draper's adorable minis, I can't get enough of Mad Men style. I inadvertently purchased my very own shift dress two weeks ago and frankly, I can't get over it. Everyone may think the nineties are dominating the current fashion scene, but in my opinion, the sixties are back in an even bigger way.
Here are some of the latest and hottest sixties trends that have resurfaced this season.
Spotted on Don's gorgeous wife, Megan Draper, white nails were very a la mode at the time of the MOD movement. They also happen to be the biggest spring nail trend. Once upon a time, you were putting liquid paper on your nails. Today, Essie's Blanc is your new shade of choice.
In case you hadn't noticed, large sunglasses are only getting bigger and bolder. White is the new black and round is the new aviator. Try these on for size a la Ralph Lauren.

Geometric prints are having a major moment, particularly of the black and white variety. Get inspired by Aimee Song of Song of Style's sophisticated black and white look.
If you've been watching Mad Men or know anything about MOD, then you definitely know that the dress cut of choice was the shift. This look was totally trending at Fashion Week. Here is a look from the Tory Burch Spring 2014 show.
If you missed the most recent Karl Lagerfeld extravaganza, you can watch it here. That's right, ladies. Big hair is the latest 60's trend to resurface. Take a break from your straightening iron and let it run wild with luscious curls or teased hair. If Karl did it, it must be coming back.
Which is your favourite MOD trend? Are you ready for this 60s comeback?
