In "Fashion File: Advice, Tips and Inspiration From the Costume Designer of 'Mad Men,'" Janie Bryant talks about how to adapt 1960s style to current wardrobes. Here are some of her picks:
This body-skimming dress hugs the bust and hips and is ideal on hourglass figures.
Preferably in black, these flat-front, slim-cut pants that taper at the ankle are more elegant and wearable than capris.
Choose a classic tailored style with a nipped waist and full skirt.
A cashmere shell and matching cardigan are day-wear essentials.
STRING OF PEARLS
Jackie Kennedy often wore a luminous pearl necklace, and many women owned them in varying lengths and styles. Brooches, too, were an accessory staple for sweaters, jackets and dresses.
