Mad Men‘s final season kicks off this Sunday on AMC at 10pm/9c, and while there’s a lot to love about the spicy show, one of our favorite love affairs is with the fashion.
Cue: Janie Bryant, the Emmy-award winning costume designer behind the cast of Mad Men‘s looks. Her skills speak to the time in which the show takes place (the 1960s) impeccably. She captures the essence of a Madison Avenue-housed advertising agency with each and every look from chic housewife styles and looks that embody the mod mood happening in the ’60s to powerhouse work wear — each of which is usually decorated with a double-strand of pearls or beautiful brooches. Needless to say, (a Banana Republic line later, after all) Bryant’s costuming made a dent. The memorable looks she creates—which are part her own designs, part vintage finds—perfectly epitomize the period while leaving us yearning to recreate the looks ourselves (if you want a little dose of her killer style in your own closet, keep your eyes peeled for her own tights line, Janie Bryant Leg Couture, which launches this August).
So while we’re sad to see the show go, we’re adding an extra dose of sweet to the start of this bitter sweet departure by taking a look back at the Emmy-award winning show’s 30 best looks ever.
