We saw two equally stylish sides of Betty Draper last night on Mad Men; cute, conservative and ultra-endearing in Ossining, and all vamped up and sultry in Rome – and we can’t decide which version we like better. While we loved the effect of her towering hairdo (if only this was trendy, or remotely possible to do ourselves) and glitzy accessories in Italy, there’s something eternally charming about an a-line dress with a neatly tied, printed silk scarf.

Since everyone should be able to go effortlessly from sweet to sexy, we suggest taking cues from Draper and picking up two essential items. Try a floral scarf in autumnal colors (it’ll go a long way) or treat yourself to a new little black dress, like this ABS design with lots of ruffles.
