I am in love with the outfits on Mad Men. This week I felt the need to do a blog post featuring Joan as our fashion icon.
The show is set in the early 60's. The 60's were a transitional period in women's fashion. The hemlines are becoming shorter as opposed to the earlier fifties style of a circle skirt that has more of a flat front and that is longer and fuller. By 1960, there's a gathering at the waist and the hem length has come up a lot. Joan, the vixen of the show, is more fashion forward wearing clothing that's fitted showing the silhouette of her body.
I picked out a few items that would fit the form fitting, silhouette showing, curve hugging, head turning style that Joan wears so well:
Upper Left: Vintage Blue as Sapphire Wool Skirt $28.00
Lower Left: Vintage Rare Custom High Heels $69.00
Upper Right:French Blue Angora Sweater $34.00
Lower Right: Joan
Outfit Total: $131.00
