Mad Men Style: Making it Your Own

Did you tune in for the premier of ‘Mad Men’ Season 4 last night? Of course you did. The sizzle. The strife. OMG, the clothes! Whether you’re a suit or a skirt, you’ve got to be inspired by the magnificent wardrobes. Seriously, how va-va- voom is Joan Holloway? That navy dress was perfection! I’ve found authentic vintage gems at thrift shops over the years, but watching the show make me want to pound the streets of South Congress Ave, looking for more fabulous treasures I can incorporate into my day-to-day look. How about you?

Love Mad Men style? Here’s how to make it your own:

It might be easier than you think to dress like a Mad women and I don’t mean like a sleep-deprived maniac. Give a deep, red, matte lipstick a try with your favorite outfit. Throw on a pair of  acrylic frame sunglasses or seek out the perfect curve-hugging sheath dress. You can even grab a Joan Holloway Pencil Necklace on Etsy. From reversible swing coats to crystal pendants, it’s not hard to embrace your inner Joan, Betty or Peggy.

In fact, you can do it all online at Unique Vintage, including the ability to shop by era. The Jackie-O silhouettes and the form-fitting wiggle dresses are simply swoon-worthy! What’s your favorite, most versatile vintage treasure? A broach? A clutch? Do tell.

If you’re hungry for more Mad Men fun, you can get Mad with a customized avatar at AMC’s MadMenYourself . Pick out the character, clothes and accessories. It’s fun, check it out! Want to win a Barbie Collector Mad Men doll? Check out this giveaway at Aol Televison.
