Mad Men Yourself: Peggy’s “Movin’ On Up” Ensemble


We’ve watched Peggy Olsen move up the ladder, one ad tagline at a time. This episode we see the former secretary about to buy her own apartment—not too far from Don’s pad. We’ve also watched Peggy’s style transform from college girl to sophisticated career woman. At times she overdoes it and dresses too old and too dowdy for her age (which perfectly illustrates the character). But the outfit she wore to meet her real estate agent was more modern and less matronly than what we’re used to seeing. I dare say, it was almost mod—the skirt’s hemline was above the knee! Click through the slideshow above to see Peggy’s ensemble and the pieces I found to get the look—shirt and skirt from Michael Kors, Paul Smith scarf, Mulberry bag, L’ Autre Chose shoes, and Pim + Larkin earrings. The only thing I couldn’t find was Peggy’s trusty gray plaid trench, which she drapes over her arm in the scene like a security blanket.
