The 1960s were a time of great change – politically and socially. Wedged between the conservative 1950s and the liberal, free spirited 1970s, it’s no surprise that the decade was dynamic when it comes to fashion. Thanks to the popularity of television’s Mad Men we‘ve been reliving the styles of this progressive decade, and it’s influence has been seen all over the runways and retail racks over the past few years.

While all of the ladies on this show look fabulous in the iconic looks of the era, my favourite is Megan Draper.

I have to admit, when Megan’s character was introduced in season 4, I was not a fan. I’d been routing for Don’s relationship with Faye Miller to work out, so I was outraged when Megan seduced him in his office. Then, there was their seemingly random and misguided marriage, a plot line that just came out of nowhere. Over the past few seasons though, she’s grown on me, and now I find her one of the show’s most endearing characters, and the most stylish.

Megan’s look is young and fresh, with a twist of sophistication. To recreate her look you’ll need tunics and flowing maxi dresses in bright, bold prints for the weekend. For daytime, simple, tailored pieces with subtle details, then for evening lots of sparkle with large piece of statement jewelry.
