My Mad Men Style

My Mad Men Style

One show, three looks. This is my modern day interpretation of how to dress like the ladies of Mad Men. It’s all about taking your favourite influences from the era, the characters and the show and adding modern touches to update your look.

I love Mad Men. I cannot wait for season five to start this Sunday! And a two hour premiere to boot, yay me! I actually re-watched the entire series not too long ago in preparation for season five and to get my Mad Men fix. It has been far, far too long since there was a new episode.

There are so many things I love about this show. One, I’m a sucker for period pieces, especially shows set in the 50’s and 60’s. While so many things were so backwards then (women’s rights, health etc.) those times seem so glamorous as well. What I wouldn’t give for a date night in the city to be a high-class, black tie affair, complete with jewels, designer dresses and furs. The service was impeccable, the drinks free flowing and the clothes. Oh man, those clothes. I also love the advertising part of the show. The ad’s from this era set the tone for what advertising would eventually become. I love the way Don starts talking about life and advertising, and random things when he gets on a roll. He just goes off into his own little world, where he makes the magic happen.

For those of you just as excited as I am for Mad Men this Sunday, here’s hoping it’s a great episode. If you’ve never watched Mad Men before, there’s still time! Have a marathon weekend, I promise you won’t regret it!
