I've been catching up on "Mad Men" episodes recently and in doing so, I can't help but be inspired by the exquisite fashion featured on the show. The lead female characters are often seen wearing a bow-adorned blouse tucked delicately into a high waisted skirt. For a contemporary spin on this vintage look, try wearing a blouse like the $27 shopruche.com variety here, but untuck it and pair with snug skinny jeans and sweet oxford heels, or don a pair of flats and loose boyfriend jeans. Another option is add the above mustard polka dot scarf ($7.99) to a simple outfit. Even better, try making your own blouse for a one-of-a-kind garment. Colettepatterns.com offers a $16 pattern that's doable for beginners. Pick out your favorite fabric and take a bow.
