Get the Mad Men Look

By Allison Onyett, Oct 30


Whether you’re dressing up for Halloween, or already planning your outfit for this year’s ‘Twas the Night on November 27, here are some iconic must-have pieces for both men and women, that you’ll need to complete your 1960's Mad Men-esk look.

 

For the Ladies:

An “A-Line” Dress: We love the flared flirty dresses from the early 60s’, like this rose petal dress availble at RW&Co, as part of their new collaboration with Elle magazine.

Pearls: Dress up your look with a beautiful string of classic pearls. Try this glass pearl necklace from Brooks Brothers.

Red Lipstic: Look for a red lipstick that really pops like this Pulp Fiction lipstic by Urban Decay. Find it at Sephora.

Black Eye Liner: You’ll need a liquid black eyeliner that can give you one a thick line on your upper lid like Benefits' "They're Real" Push Up Liner. Find it at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Gloves: Finish off your look with a pair of wrist length gloves, a must-have item in the 60s. Find these ones at Aldo.

 

For the Men:

Skinny Tie: Luckily this look didn’t see its last days in the 60s so there’s plenty of options when it comes to finding a skinny tie. We like these BOSS patterned silk ties from from Harry Rosen.

Or try a bow tie, like this one from Banana Republic.

Fedora Hat:  The fedora hat was an iconic accessorie of the 60s, but we're noticing it's making a come-back. Find this Italian Borsalino hat at Holt Renfrew

Cuff Links: One of the few pieces of jewelry that’s really only for men, cuff links are the perfect way to accessorize and amp-up your look, and they'll never go out of style. We like these mother of pearl cuff links from Brooks Brothers

Pocket Square: Find a pocket square that’s truly you. Go for anything from plain white to pocka dots, or this foulard pocket square from Club Monaco

A Well Tailored Suit: There’s plenty of options for a suit like the one ‘Twas the Night entertainer, Matt Dusk is wearing here. Try Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, Tip Top or Brooks Brothers
