The Ladies of Mad Men

Thursday, August 28, 2008

I don't know about you but Mad Men has sucked me in. From the fashions, the smoking and drinking, to the world in which women are secondary, I'm completely hooked. The women may be secondary in the workplace and in marriages but their fashions have the show's spotlight. Here I've recreated modern looks that might be seen on Joan, Peggy, and Betty.

Betty Draper is the housewife of the group. This former model has a Grace Kelly air and seems to glide around the house in shirtdresses and pearls.

Joan Holloway, on the other hand, is the office manager for Sterling-Cooper. Her looks consist of form-fitting jewel tones with her signature bar necklace and gold pin.

Peggy Olson may not be the most fashion-forward but her look is still doable and modern. Plaids, cardigans, and a lack of jewelry make up this copywriter's wardrobe.

See? Early 60's inspired looks are easy to pull off and oh so chic!

I want that plaid dress in the last picture. The belt is a lovely addition.
