On last night’s Mad Men, for a moment we thought we’d have to say goodbye to Joan Holloway and her vampy style, but of course, the television gods swooped in to our rescue. Although Joan will not be leaving her post as Office Manager at Sterling Cooper – her doctor husband got the boot at his hospital, which caused some serious marital drama – she certainly looked fashionable at her fake farewell party that went terribly awry.
You may have to be an actual redhead to wear Joan’s particular shade of green, but we love a sheath with some embellishment at the neckline. Try this dress with a rosette at the collar in trendy plaid ($138) or do it yourself with an old sheath and a new brooch ($43).
Accessories are a fun way to glam up a work outfit and still remain office-appropriate; so check out our guides for the best in figure-flattering jewelry, fall handbags, and hosiery to complete your look.
