Mid-century modern fashion steals the show for spring.
Taking a cue from the ’50s and ’60s means dabbling in everything dapper, like a classic pullover or trim cardigan. But what really defined the fashion movement was volume—or lack thereof. The ties were a tad skinnier, the fit a bit more snug, and the tailoring was always impeccable. To get the look, keep sleeves and hems on the shorter side and look to vintage-inspired accessories to amp up the “Mad Men” factor. Masculine oversized watches and professorworthy specs make a statement while pale loafers put the modern in mod. After mastering the fit and fab retro extras, the only thing you’ll be missing is a martini wielded in true Don Draper style.
