AMC’s Mad Men hasn’t just taken the TV industry by storm. It’s also made a distinct mark on the fashion world. There is no hiding that Janie Bryant’s brilliant ’50s and ’60s-inspired costumes for the show have influenced our favorite designers, and stores from New York to Paris. Of course, we’ve completely jumped on the Mad Men bandwagon, obsessing over everything from Joan Harris’ updos to Betty Draper’s stunning gowns. Here are our favorite Mad Men-inspired pieces!
Ray’s Mad Men Picks: This season’s costumes are edging slowly towards the doors of Studio 54. I simply loved the trapeze dress Megan Draper wore as she sang a memorable rendition of “Zou Bisou Bisou” — it was a sexy change from the more traditional looks often seen on the series. Proenza Schouler’s geometric shapes are a fun spin on ’60s-style attire, and would look great with a chunky, vintage Chanel necklace for round of Old-Fashioneds with the ladies.

Ro’s Mad Men Picks: I want to steer away from full-skirted dresses, and focus on one of my favorite looks from the show, which is ’50s menswear-inspired. I loved when the women began wearing narrow pants for an added a masculine touch, and these A.L.C Cropped Skinny Pants are my top choice for the ultimate Mad Men-driven look. In an intoxicating sea foam green, they embody the decade’s fondness for bright colors.
