Mad Men Glasses Inspiration

9:23 PM

Mad Men returned to TV last Sunday, and while the world is still abuzz about "Zou Bisou Bisou," I was once again inspired by all of the great throwback styles!  Here are some options for copying some of your favorite retro looks.



Pastel sunglasses are having a major moment this spring and summer, so Betty is right on trend (as usual).

Look for dark rimmed zyl frames with tortoise accents.  This look is all about the hardware. Look for darker "woodsy" undertones in rich browns, burgundy, and black. The size of the frames are a lot more proportional compared to the oversized "geek" chic frames that are so popular now.

Right: Warby Parker's Willoughby frame in "Tennessee Whiskey."  With a color name like that, you can't go wrong really.

Below: Sunglasses from Warby Parker (Tenley style shown) are a great way to capture Roger's style that translates even into women's frames.


Don's late secretary wasn't just great for comedic relief, she had some major style.  The cat shaped readers that are iconic for her character are a shape that is quite popular is sunglasses again this season.
