By now, you have probably heard about Banana Republic’s exclusive Mad Men collection coming out for fall (debuts in stores tomorrow, I believe). I could never get into the show – shocker, I know. Many friends encouraged me to watch it and I gave it a chance for an entire season but it just never grabbed me. I found it to be slow, anti-climatic and just a little too dark. The fashion in the show was an entirely different story. I LOVED IT. I loved the throw-back to that era and the way the silhouettes enhanced the feminine body. Mad Men fashion is definitely classically chic and I will be buying some pieces from the collection. Since I “like” Banana on Facebook, I was able to view the collection this evening. Here are just a few of the looks that stood out to me:

Leopard trench

Leopard trench?! Yes, please. A great piece of outerwear is essential for fall because, sometimes, that’s all anyone sees of your outfit.

Lace Tipped dress

A classic LBD. I love the asymmetric neckline and the subtle lace detailing at the hem. Would be great for the office or a wedding. Money well spent.

Houndstooth dress

I love the updated spin on the large, graphic houndstooth print and the color combo.

Animal Print cardi & Tie-Neck blouse

I love the styling of this animal print with the jewel-tone blouse. A tie-neck blouse alone could come off as a little preppy and old lady-ish, but this look is modern paired with a short cardi and casually pushed-up sleeves.

And even better, all of the clothing (at least what BR is showing on Facebook) is less than $200! How’s that for classic, quality pieces at affordable prices? Way to go, BR. This collection is a perfect testament to why I love you.

What do you think of the Mad Men collection? And are you a fan of the show? Is there anyone on the “not a fan of Mad Man” island with me?
