At a time when Lululemon leggings can too often seem like evening wear (they're black, right?), "Mad Men"‚ back this Sunday after a too-long absence‚ is a reminder that clothing can matter, if we want it to.
"So many people are like me: when they watch Mad Men, they're inspired. They can fantasize about a world where women were elaborately dressed when they came to work, and men were in a suit and tie...My husband -- I'm like, why don't you wear more of that?"
Grooming should be a big priority. Stick to a clean and classic look in hair and face to emulate the agency men we watch every Sunday. Take that extra time in presentation as Don Draper would -- as he would surely say, presentation is everything.
With New York Fashion Week underway, I couldn't help but see Betty in Ports 1961, Peggy in Jason Wu, Joan in Prabal Gurung, and Don in Simon Spurr. We cannot deny the profound effect Mad Men has had on the latest trends.
Hellooooo 1965! The times may be ah-changing but it seems the L.A. vs. New York style has not. New Yorker Don traded his hat and suit for Los Angelan Dick, who prefers aviators and short-sleeved button ups.
