Confession: I kind of hate Mad Men. I know, the clothes are so pretty and Jon Hamm is cute and it’s allegedly one of the more “intellectual” shows on air right now. But when I watched it, I found it to be a completely and utterly snoozeworthy soap opera. Oops. I guess I’m just completely lacking in taste. That said, I love January Jones. Her portrayal of Betty Draper was one of the few highlights of Mad Men for me, and on a more superficial note, I think she is completely and utterly stunning. As she’s been on a whirlwind promo tour as of late, and her style has been killer.
This lace tank both sexy and modest, and I especially love the flattering length and cut. A blazer with a bit of shoulder padding is always an excellent layering choice. January chose a pair of olive leggings, in an interesting contrast to the black. It’s jarring, but I appreciate the risk. It’s definitely an unexpected choice, but I think it totally works. One of the reasons black is such a classic color is because it is so ridiculously versatile, and it’s fun to take advantage of that. Black suede pumps complete the ensemble. This look as it is would be great for night, but you could easily swap the pumps for some ballet flats, and add a bright bag, to transition it into day.
