Mad for Mad Men's Jewelry Style

The show Mad Men has become a modern phenom, quickly developing a cult-classic type following. AMC's hit show has us on the edge of our seat every week, but it's not just the plot lines we're interested in – it's the fashion statements and the period jewelry that have us tuning in. The ladies of Mad Men have made A-line dresses, single strand pearl necklaces, multi-strand bracelets and clip-on earrings cool again, and we love the revival.Clip-On EarringsSet in the 60s, Betty Draper, played by January Jones, is the quintessential housewife. She's prim, proper and dressed perfectly for any event. Her wardrobe must haves include cashmere sweater sets and conservative dresses, always complimented by pearl necklaces and a pair of classic pearl clip on earrings. What's great is that these clip earrings have started a fashion trend that's turning into a major comeback.

Designers have responded with their own collections of Mad Men inspired clip earrings. For dressy pieces that will get you noticed (think Christina Hendricks as Joan), choose from bejeweled studs, fanned out florals or art deco inspired clusters that easily and comfortably clip-on. Though these styles might be a little too fancy for today's workplace, they'll work great with a cocktail dress or a great blouse paired with jeans. For everyday wear, choose from gold clip on earrings in classic button or love knot shaped. These are great at adding interest and they provide a welcome change from more modern jewelry trends.

It's definitely the season of the clip on earring comeback. What's great is that any woman can wear these designs and feel comfortable and confident. So whether you already own a great pair of vintage inspired clip on earrings or you plan on picking some up, you can be sure that this is the season that everyone's going mad for clip on earrings.
