It's a great show for fashion eye candy with lots of cinematic qualities and a slow burn kind of plot. It's perfect for knitting and tea drinking while you 'ooh' and 'ahh' at the fashion, hairstyles and sets and tisk at constant smoking and the scandal of the many MANY affairs and romantic dealings. Love it!!!
I really love the fashion of the early 60s as it still has lots of the style and glamour of the 50s. The outfits used on the show are so thoughtfully put together with accessories, hair and make up. They do a good job of making you feel like you're really seeing a snapshot of the time. I think it's amazing!
Here are some pics of dresses/outfits I liked, although they're really just a taste!
|Joan, gorgeous pink dress|
|Betty, stunning floral dress + awesome sunglasses!|
|Betty, classic dress with polka dot sash|
|Mad Men's glam ladies|
|Teal dress in Mad Men style|
|Joan barbie, I want one!|
One day if I ever get over my fear of patterns and conquer sewing clothes, I'd love to try a dress in the 50s style. The shape is so flattering and classic and the possibilities are endless. Until then I'll happily continue lusting after Mad Men fashions!
