Style Guide: Are you ready for all the “MadMen-ess”?
by LaV enStyle
It’s just one day before all the “Mad Men-ess” begins! Heading to a Mad Men viewing party? Have nothing to wear? Don’t fret! Check out my ManMen style guide below to channel all your favorite female characters and be inspired to create your very own look and step out in Mad Men style! Joan Holloway: Joan is known for her voluptuous figure, but a master at pulling off sexy without too much skin. Try out this TopshopTwist cutout bodycon dress for an modern-day Joan look! Pair it with this Oscar de a Renta Marelia clutch to update the ensemble. Just add a pair of chunky black heels and you’re ready to go in Joan-style!
Betty’s style just happens to be my favorite. I love her refined, chic looks. While her night attire is often elegant and stunning, I think it’s fun to incorporate her flirty daywear with my own staple pieces. I was inspired to play with her daywear looks after finding this amazing green lace tulip dress from Zara. The rich green pairs nicely with one of my favorite red bags, also from Zara, and my Sam Edelman T-strap wedges. I like keeping within the rich tones for the look and adding a pop of light cream with my go-to spring coat.
While I didn’t get a chance to see this one in stores, I found this lovely floral frock with searching the Zara USA website. It’s another classic ‘Betty Draper’ that would pair nicely with flats or heels, a cardigan and vintage-inspired white glasses.
Peggy Olsen: In the most recent seasons, Peggy has really stepped up her style. Mimic Peggy’s new chic-ness with this Ann Taylor crepe shoulder ruffle sheath dress.
Pair the dress with this floral print cardigan from none other than the Banana Republic Mad Men collection.
Not only are the adult clothes fabulous on this Emmy Award winning show, but who doesn’t love the adorable kids outfits. If only I dressed this cute as a kid. One of the best parts of the show has been watching Sally grow up and her personal style evolve. If you are brining your little one to a party, these Oscar de la Renta dresses are perfect for any “Sally wanna-be.” See oscardelarenta.com for more beautiful floral patterns!
If your child is a bit younger, channel Sally’s younger years with this pretty, pink Oscar de la Renta Tavora dress.
