mad men season 5, episode 4: shop the show

I gotta say, Season Five of Mad Men is pretty damn intense. And the wardrobes are as heightened as the plotlines. From Joan's rosebud dotted waist-cincher to Megan's purple shifts, every character is undoubtedly telling a bit of her story through fashion. Watch the clip below to see a few of our favorite outfits, and then shop them in the slideshow.

Don’s Copywriter “Friend”

With flame-colored hair, the look of Don’s former conquest was somehow prim, polished and sexually charged at once.

Megan Draper

The second Mrs. Draper’s gone completely mod with a swingy bob, pilgrim flats and lots of mini dresses.  Her penchant for purple should also be noted…we feel like it must be foreshadowing something...we just don’t know what.

Joan Holloway Harris, Black Dress

I wish I could find a clip of Joan’s black dress covered in roses, because it’s amazing. Unfortunately I can’t. Let’s just say it’s a typical Joan silhouette. But black. With medium-sized red roses scattered all over it. This modern day interpretation takes Joan’s aesthetic and injects it with a hit of ‘90s irony.

Dawn Chambers and Peggy Olson

This scene was not about the clothes, but hey, they still matter. Dawn’s simple checked dress may not be flashy, but it gives her a soft, pretty look. And Peggy’s been wearing a lot of green: kelly, forest, pistachio. Click through to shop their looks.

Joan Holloway Harris, Magenta Dress

This dress is classic Joan: just-sexy-enough in a color that looks beautiful against her red hair. What’s more, the rhinestone brooch is an easy style upgrade that still works today.  Click through to shop her look.
