Look for simple yet classic pieces to achieve that designer feeling. Top off your look with a shimmery bronzer to get a light, sun-kissed glow.

Get her sexy vintage Mad Men style: Pair a full-skirted dress with kitten heels. Make sure to pick a dress with a bold pattern and strong silhouette. Accessories should be understated.
