If you asked us to identify our favorite redhead in the history of redheads, we’d unanimously chime “Joan Holloway!” (with Pippi Longstocking as a close second, obviously). This fiery (pun intended) sexy, sassy leading lady not only makes us almost wish we were ginger-locked, but also that we lived in the sixties.
Lucky for us, Joan Holloway is an easy costume to craft out of clothes you probably already have, and a few simple accessories. Start with a body-hugging red dress, and a pair of killer pumps. Add in Joan-esque accessories–we opted for a structured bag, and a plaid jacket. Now time for your transformation–pick up a pair of fake thick-rimmed glasses, a red wig, Joanie’s signature pen necklace, and a pack of cigarettes (fake ones, of course)–you look gorgeous. Best of all, your costume is even office-appropriate!
