LookMazing + Banana Republic’s Mad Men Collection

I was thrilled when Banana Republic announced that they were planning to produce another Mad Men inspired collection this season. It’s funny, I love classic, retro styles and have adored & shopped these collections in the past, but I’ve never actually seen Mad Men.

Need to remedy that ASAP.


In honor of my recent LookMazing feature {pictured above} and the fun Banana Republic pieces that I got a chance to try out, I wanted to share my favorite picks from this new collection.


{Collection Hampton-Fit Gingham Crop – $100}

These pants are perfect for Spring 2013. Perfect for daytime wear with sandals or flats, a basic tee, and a brightly colored scarf, or for nighttime with heels, a sleek tank, and some statement jewelry.


{Left: Collection Beaded Necklace – $60 & Left: Collection Line Bracelet – $50}

Speaking of statement jewelry… Loved all of the Mad Men pieces but these were my favorite. I especially like the navy + green color combination in this necklace – Really classic & chic, but with a modern twist.


{Collection Peggy Ballet Heel – $130}

I love a great pair of low-heeled pumps and the metallic embellishment on these is the perfect little touch to make these visually interesting and really stand out. You could easily wear these with a pencil skirt for work or paired with your favorite jeans & a leather jacket for a night out.

Don’t worry boys, I didn’t forget you. While the perfect suit is obviously a must have for the gentleman with style, the accessories are where you can really have fun and get creative. And Banana Republic’s Mad Men collection has some pretty darn cute extras for you to invest in!


{Left: Striped Silk Skinny Tie – $70 & Right: Straw Fedora – $50}

The navy looks great paired with both the black and the brown in these pieces and by including great striped accessories like these you’re opening up your look to incorporate additional colors.

Which pieces from this fun new collection are on your Must Have list?
