Mad Men Season 4 premieres on Sunday, and I cannot wait. This show's as amazing for its storylines and genius character development as it is for its mad 1960s style and flair -- especially that of the show's favorite ladies: Betty Draper (January Jones), Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks),and Peggy Olson (Elizabeth Moss).
Here are some Mad Men fashion picks -- some vintage 1960s and some new and all under $85 -- to help you unleash your inner Betty, Joan, or Peggy. Which one are you?
Dress Like Betty Draper:
Nothing says (well-)kept wife Betty Draper glamour like sweet florals, soft Easter egg pastels, and an elegant evening white.
