Kate Mara Rocks Mod-Inspired Shift Dress — Add Your Own Personal Twist To A Similar Look

When celebrities make a style transformation, the world notices. Kate Mara's mod-inspired outfit looked perfect with her fresh new 'do. Straight off the silver screen from her role in Fantastic Four, this woman recently revamped her look, and it seems as if her clothes are getting an upgrade, too. This choppy cut and fierce outfit deserve a second glance.

Mara may have played the invisible woman in the newest Fantastic Four movie, but her outfit was anything but unnoticeable. She headed out to promote the movie in a retro-inspired outfit that made her stand-out out among her mostly male co-stars. With a brand new pixie cut and a minimalist approach to styling, the star's little black dress had a modern-mod feel. The shift-style dress was covered in silver, ombré embellishments from top to bottom and was just short enough to stun while still giving off an elegant, red carpet feel.

Although she kept the accessories to a minimum, there was no denying the on-point styling of this outfit. Hitting the streets of New York in a pair of blush Oxfords, a box clutch, and a pair of stud earrings, she gave the popular dress silhouette a sleek and modern update. Mara kept the look simple, making it an easy outfit to replicate.

Because the dress is so classic, it's wearable for any fashion personality. Opt for something a little less embellished or a modern print depending on the look you're going for. There really is no way to mess up a shift dress, but picking the right pattern is key to giving your little black dress your own personal spin.

1. Stick With Embellishments

Leave the sleeves at home for the dog days of summer. The embellishments will leave you looking red carpet ready, just like Mara.

2. Add Some Color

Swap the sparkles for some color with this embroidered flower print. Add a jean jacket and this dress could easily be taken from summer to fall.

3. Keep It Classy

If Mara's look didn't have quite enough sparkle for you, this dress will jazz things up a bit. It's a little less mod than the star's, but it's just as perfect for a night on the town.
