The best of Betty Draper (Mad Men week)

Continuing with the Mad Men themed week, here is a lady that owns one envious wardrobe, the very interesting, character Betty Draper (played by January Jones). From the outside she’s seen as the perfect housewife, showcasing an impression of a ‘happy family’ – yet viewers of the show know this not to be true – the facade is false and to me her character is absolutely fascinating while her costumes are to die for.

I need this outfit in my life. The ultra girly floral shift dress flatters Betty’s petite frame and the matching white lace gloves, ivory coloured bag, pearl necklace and white sunglasses give a retro vibe.

A spring-yellow collared dress and a floral cream cardigan with pearl-drop earrings and signature headband hides is a very typical outfit of Betty’s whilst she is doing chores around the house or entertaining neighbours – it’s very innocent.

This outfit is fantastic and elegant – the cream satin embroidered dress with a jewelled necklace, and is that pastel orange nail polish I see? (I’m wearing something very similar as we speak!) reminds me of old Hollywood glamour, and with Don in a tux it’s almost like a James bond scenario.

Betty Draper can really pull of pastel colours, they completely warm her skin tone despite being fair-skinned. This textured pastel blue, almost grey ensemble teamed with the fur collar is very sophisticated and the 3/4 length sleeves give a soft, lady-like feel – a true Betty Draper evening wear outfit.
