Janie Bryant’s mad genius work on Mad Men is finally available to stylish gals of the 21st century through her collaboration with Black Halo. The collection features eight amazing pieces and I’m desperately sighing for one of her elegantly edgy designs. Modest skirt lengths are paired with sexy slits and bold prints are balanced with soft silhouettes — it’s everything you could hope for and more from the Emmy-nominated costume designer. Check out the collection for your own Mad Men moment.

This comedienne’s got more than jokes, she’s got Style. Melissa McCarthy isn’t as well known for her fashion choices as she is for her acting, but that might change with the upcoming launch of her clothing line next month. The actress actually studied textiles before moving to NYC with friend Brian Atwood (yup, designer Brian Atwood), where she forewent finishing at FIT to pursue stand-up. Over 20 years later her designer dreams are coming true and we finally get to see a rather over-shadowed side to Melissa. To say her Style is bold is an understatement. She’s fond of trends and patterns, which she keeps sophisticated by opting for monochromatic palettes and muted colors. From sneaker wedges to pussy bows, her Style is a healthy mix of classic and edgy. Take a tip from Melissa and mix it up a bit– even if you end up laughing at yourself, fashion is all about having fun.

WangHMSweatshirt

Ladies and gents, the designer collab everyone has been waiting for is almost here! The lookbook for Alexander Wang’s 58-piece collection for H&M was launched just a few days ago, and it. is. perfect. His sporty-chic pieces are amazingly wearable while still maintaining their edge. My personal favorite is this cropped sweatshirt, which offers a fresh new spin on the lazy fave. The simply fabulous top comes in a heather grey and solid black (like most of his collection) and it goes with absolutely everything. Prepare to get in line, his limited collection is available on November 6 online and in 250 H&M stores worldwide.
