WHAT TO WEAR: Retro Glam – Mad Men Inspired Fashion

Last night the hot tv show Mad Men had it’s season premiere. The show has made the early 60’s, oh so in fashion and has inspired the return to ‘retro glamour look’ all over again. As the girls drool for Don Draper and the boys drool for his clothes, Mad Men and for some mad women are making us nostalgic for the smoke and drink your heart out era while looking oh so glam. The nipped in waists, full skirts and sheath dresses have made a return to fashion for the fall and if you haven’t yet noticed men’s suits are slim and the ties even slimmer. Mad Men show didn’t invent 60’s fashion but has definitely played a role in bringing it back. To celebrate it’s return here are out fashion picks for affordable ways to get the look inspired by the fashion trends from Mad Men:
