Lesley EversMad Men may be on indefinite hiatus (*sob*), but that doesn't mean you have to go completely without the retro glamor of Betty and Joan.

I've pretty much permanently incorporated 50s and 60s-style dresses into my wardrobe, and thank God there are designers like Lilly Pulitzer and Lesley Evers to help me do it!

Check out this gorgeous Tilda dress by Lesley Evers that I'm wearing this spring. I feel like Donna Reed every time I wear it!

Ellen TracyWant a similar look on a budget? Check out this pretty Ellen Tracy dress (Zappos, $138).

 

Lesley EversPeggy on Mad Men would totally go to a crazy Greenwich Village party in this Riley Dress (Lesley Evers, $132.50 on sale). Lesley Evers' dresses are on the pricey side for many of you (and rightly so- they're exquisitely made), but keep an eye on her sale page and you'll find more affordable frocks.

 

Lilly PulitzerI could totally see Betty Draper heading out with the kids for groceries in this Adelson Shift Printed Dobby (Lilly Pulitzer, $278).

 

ModClothOn a budget? Check out this Daffodil Centerpiece Dress (ModCloth, $47.99). ModCloth is probably the most affordable retro-style retailer there is, but you have to be quick to get the look you want- Their dresses sell out fast and the Mad Men look is definitely their most popular!

 

ModClothHere's another excellent choice. This Red-y for Inspiration Dress (ModCloth, $47.99) just came back in stock.

 

NordstromEliza J dresses tend to have a 50s and 60s vibe. I like this Ruffled Shirtdress (Nordstrom, $138).

 

Kate SpadeFinally, Kate Spade's prices are often too high for me, but I definitely draw inspiration from the designs, and I DEFINITELY keep an eye on the sale page! This adorable Jillian dress (Kate Spade, $177) was originally $355!

What do you think about these retro styles?

Disclosure: Lesley Evers provided me with a dress for review, but I've been lusting after her dresses for two years now and have long been a fan!
