straight from the show’s costume designer, Janie Bryant. As with the Ann Taylor collection, “Mad Men” mixes combinations of delicate lace tops with animal print accessories and classic tweed jackets and slacks that accentuate the feminine form without the threat of being too revealing. My particular favorite, which personifies the sultry sophistication of the Mad Men Collection, is the “cigarette pant,” an above-ankle, creased pant with a high waist and invisible zipper. Pair it with some solid colored pumps, a silk, tie neck top and red lipstick, and you’ll be ready for a day on the set or in the office. Check out the Mad Men Collection online or at store locations in Boston, Farmington, Conn., or New York City. If you find yourself moving in the slow lane, be it at work or on your way to the local mall, try pushing the pedal a bit more and see where it takes you. You just might end up finding a mad style all your own.
