50's Mad Men Look

We have gone MAD for 50s-style full skirts, nipped in waists, vintage bralets and sassy pencil skirts that'll raise the temperature of any office.

Get your Mad Men dress for this seasons christmas party!

Lately it seems like the whole world has 1950s (and early 1960s) fever, with Mad Men causing a flutter among fashion savants. This very tailored, feminine aesthetic is coming back into fashion in a big way!

Take inspiration from Mad Men's sassy Joan, pretty Betty and classic Peggy, to tap into fall's favourite silhouettes.


Fashion of the 1950s and early 60s was all about elegance and femininity, with iconic women like Jaqueline Kennedy epitomising the fashion period with pastel colours, boxy jackets, oversized buttons, full skirts and close-fitting waist lines.

The silhouette of this time accentuated women’s hourglass figures, and is often considered the most flattering silhouette in fashion’s history.
