Today’s Coveted Working Look: Go Mod with Banana Republic

by Anne Dreshfield | March 12th, 2013   

The new Mad Men Collection has launched at Banana Republic, and it’s certainly reflecting the show’s shift from the late 60s into the 70s! With powerful prints that pop and saturated hues, Banana Republic is taking a modern twist on the 1970s. I think the real trick with this collection is to skip the typical 70s styling (winged liner, heavy bangs, and matte skin), and give it your own bit of updated pizzazz for the 21st century.

One of my favorite piece from the collection, the Mad Men Collection Mod Shirtdress, is a versatile piece for the office. Made from 100% silk, the Mad Men Collection Mod Shirtdress offers a bright splash of color with coral and navy blue geometric designs. I would slip this on with nude patent leather heels to amp up the glamor and fun at the office. As a recent commenter on the site said, “Just received this dress in the mail…I feel just like Jessica Pare!” One note – if the length is too short for your workplace, you can easily wear this dress as a tunic. Pair it with a boyfriend blazer and skinny black pants. Still Mad Men, and still chic!
