Maybe you'd say I'm far behind the curve in blogging about Mad Men, but not when you look at Fall 2010's styles. Were designers influenced by the show or did they simply wish to push women from sloppy to proper?
Regardless of the reasons, here's my own take on the women of Mad Men mixed with fall fashion.
Betty Draper embodies the perfectly put together woman of the early 1960's. To get the look, go for long, full skirts and fitted tops. Finish it off with ladylike jewelry and red lips.

Peggy Olson is conservative and youthful in her dress. You would be too if you had a love child with a married man... Her look commands soft colors, ruffles or bows at the neck, and a love for headbands and hats.

Joan Holloway is a walking pin-up in secretary's clothing. She exudes sexy confidence and commands the attention of the room. To create your own Joan, stick to body hugging pencil skirts, bold colors, and avoid big prints.
