1960s Fashion – How to Dress Like Betty Draper from Mad Men

Betty Draper’s outfits in Mad Men are something that is totally copy-worthy if you want to dress retro style. Interesting enough I found many of her outfits are quite wearable nowadays. Betty’s riding outfit has actually “wandered” from “special occasion” group (particularly for riding) to our “every-day-casual” outfits.

To add a retro feel to your strappy little black dress, go for swinging Pearl earrings (you may spend some time to find such beauties though). Long necklace and retro hairstyle, and your 1960s-fashion-inspired outfit will definitely turn some heads! In a good way!

1960s Fashion – How to Dress like Joan Holloway from Mad Men

Joan Holloway is the character that men (and women!) have been falling in love with! Personally, I love everything about Joan Holloway – her personality, her look and her style. In order to copy Joan’s style, go for fitted dresses, pencil skirts, tailored blouses and clingy sweaters. She always wears heels; broaches and earrings are one of her favorite jewelry pieces.

An outfit in burgundy looks especially chic if accessorized with a broach and a clutch. This outfit that is more than appropriate for wearing to an office. If Joan wore something like this in 1960s to the workplace, then it is absolutely office-appropriate in 21st century.

A fitted red dress is especially attention-grabbing. If combined with golden jewelry like these earrings and long necklace, it makes a perfect going out assemble. Would I recommend wearing this outfit to an office? Mmmmm, probably not… unless your goal is to make your colleges counterproductive at work.

Speaking of outfit ideas for an office, this next one will work. Peggy Olsen’s style has really evolved as she climbed the corporate ladder and started wearing more sophisticated pieces. But this plaid dress is so 1960s fashion that I just could not help but to include this outfit here. Classy plaid dress combined with bright colored shoes and purse will make a perfect outfit for an office. If you want you can always go for Pearl jewelry to add more of “retro” to your look.

1960s Fashion – How to Dress like Jane Sterling from Mad Men

Jane Sterling’s cut out evening gown is the fashion moment that is hard to forget. She looked absolutely stunning in it! It is not easy to find an evening gown exactly like this one. But you can always go for a creamy long evening dress accessorized with chandelier earrings. Add silver color heeled sandals and little clutch, and you get a perfect outfit for special occasion such as prom or a wedding.

I hope that these “Mad Men” fashion moments have inspired you to experiment with retro style. There are many clothes that we wear nowadays without realizing that they were 1960s fashion inspired. In a way, many of us have been trying out retro style if we have ever worn fitted floral dresses or cat eye shades. Why not go ahead and experiment with more outfits – inspired my 1960s fashion and “Mad Men” series in particular?!
