Mad Men Monday: Jewel toned dress and a belted cardigan!

Monday, November 19, 2012 Amber 1 Comments

As I've said before...Mad Men fashion--and Joan Holloway's specific style--is great for the plussize curvy girl. The ladylike hemlines and curve-hugging silhouettes give curvy girls so much to work with...and what better way to brighten up a Monday than with some sassy 60s inspired office wear? To kick off my new Mad Men Monday series, I'm sporting a deep purple, scoop neck, knee-length dress with pleating details at the bust and waist. Adding a cardigan and belting it accentuates the nipped-in waist that exemplifies the iconic style. If you are looking to recreate this style, choose dresses in dark, rich jewel tones and cardigans that come with sparkly accents.

Dress: Dressbarn; Cardigan via Macy's; Ankle-strap Wedges: Sam Edelman

Also, no Mad Men Monday is complete without bright red lipstick and pearls!

I'm ready to go head to head with Don Draper!
