Are you a Betty? Or a Joan?
That’s the tag line splayed across the windows of Banana Republic stores all over the country today. You see, the workwear favorite is launching its vintage-tinged line inspired by Mad Men. You can click through to see the complete collection here–and visit BananaRepublic.com to scoop up your favorites. But first, BR creative director Simon Kneen has shared with us his top three picks from the capsule:
“First on my list would be one of our beautiful dresses,” says Kneen. “The red taffeta dress is one of my personal favorites—it’s a gorgeous dress that was actually inspired by one of [Mad Men costume designer] Janie Bryant’s personal vintage pieces from her family—a semi-couture piece that was made by hand."

“I would definitely recommend a mohair cardigan,” which come in soft colors like dusty rose. “It’s got an early ‘60s feeling—with the three quarter dolman sleeve—definitely something that’s very Betty.”

“The other thing I love is the leopard skin print trench,” says Kneen. “It’s a lot of fun, but it’s also very practical as well. Who doesn’t love a trench coat in between seasons?”
