Ah, to live in the world of Mad Men—men were scoundrels, women were ladies, and lunch was three martinis and a cocktail olive.

Here’s how to get that sexy 1960s look:

Modern Day Roger Sterling

His classic pinstriped, three-piece suit is as debonair as the man in it … and instantly ready for the three o’clock happy hour.

Modern Day Betty Draper

While not as overtly sexy as Joan, Betty favors belted waists and full skirts in pastels or floral prints to show off her hard-won figure.

Don Draper

Don Draper is the ultimate man’s man—men want to be him and women want to … well, you know. He’s mysterious, sexy, and immaculately groomed.

Modern Day Don Draper

Crisply tailored gray suits look fantastic but are never flashy—perfect for the man with too many secrets. For added Draper flair, add a jaunty fedora and flat pocket square.

Modern Day Joan Holloway

Swishing her bodacious bod in jewel-toned, skintight sheaths, she wouldn’t be caught dead in neutrals or dark colors. With every inch of her nipped, tucked, and squeezed into a wiggle dress, Joan controls men’s appointment books … and their hearts.

Peggy Olson

Peggy Olson knows how to dress for the job she wants, not the job she has. With her eye on that corner office, she never shows cleavage or wears short skirts.

Modern Day Peggy Olson

Demure, pretty, and smart, Peggy favors polka dots, prints, and pleats for a girlishly cute yet mature look that’s equally as impressive as her resume.

Roger Sterling

As head of Sterling Cooper, Roger Sterling knows exactly what he can—and can’t—get away with. All this silver fox needs is a cigarette in one hand, a martini in the other, and a pretty girl on his lap.

Modern Day Pete Campbell

Skinny ties and suits have already come back in style courtesy of the hipster movement, but for a truly Pete Campbell look, add a little rock-n-roll rebellion with some sweet kicks—try Kanye West’s new line for Louis Vuitton.
