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

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

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!
