19 Peggy & Joan Outfits From 'Mad Men' That Prove These Ladies Have Got It Going On

When we're looking for '60s fashion inspiration, does it get any better than Mad Men? Not only does the show have some of the best TV writing in town, paired with the best acting in town, it's also got the best clothes in town (especially where fan-favorites Peggy Olson and Joan Holloway are concerned).

Season 7B premieres Sunday, April 7 and there's a lot more that Mad Men needs to address before leaving our screens for good — it's going to be tough to say goodbye to all the good folks (and not so good folks — love ya, Angry Pete) over at Sterling Cooper and Partners.

Sad as it's going to be to bid the show farewell, we might as well celebrate the premiere while we still can — and what better way to celebrate Mad Men than looking at clothes? Especially when we're dealing with the wardrobes of the series' two powerhouse ladies, Joan & Peggy?

Joan's Red Sheath Dress

Straight up iconic.

Peggy's Pillbox Hat

She wears the style enough that it’s one of her signature looks — in Season 7, she even wears a crocheted version of the hat (so very almost ’70s of her, right?).

Joan's Rose-Embroidered Dress

Of course, the accordion is the only logical accessory — and some French chanteuse-ing doesn’t hurt, either.

Peggy's Heart-Printed Dress

One of Peggy’s personal bests.

Joan's Sailor Dress

Is the whole nautical look ever not on trend?

Peggy's Bombshell Number

Remember the one time Peggy dressed up back in Season 2? Apart from the ultra-mod black and pink number she wore for Ted’s benefit, this dress has the distinction of being the only time Peggy dressed for the benefit of the boys.

Joan's Green Dress

So, so elegant — too bad it got ruined by some epically gory foot spatter in one of Mad Men’s best scenes to date.

Joan's Fuchsia Dress

On a side note, there might not be anyone else in the world who can pull off jewel tones like Christina here (also, if AMC started marketing Joan’s gold pen necklace, I bet they’d make a mint).

Peggy's Purple Bowed Dress

Peggy wore a lot of bows (especially during Season 6), and I have to say, it’s a great look for her.

Joan's Green and Blue Bowed Dress

Though of course, Joan can really rock the bowed look too.

Peggy's Green and Blue Striped Dress

Ah, the Burger Chef dress. That day marked one of Peggy’s biggest triumphs to date — and her green and blue dress was pitch-perfect for the occasion.

Joan's Beach Wear

We so rarely get to see Joan outside of her work wear that this was a real treat. Of course she can even manage to make even sportswear glamourous.

Peggy's Double-Breasted Dress

No one does military-inspired adorableness quite like Peggy.

Joan's Capelet

Joan in the office is already pretty fabulous, but Joan out on the town? She’s basically where the term “dressed to kill” comes from.

Peggy's Pink & Black Babydoll

Ah. The iconic “eat your heart out, Ted” dress. Sure, it was a little over the top, but darn if it didn’t get the job done.

Joan's Fuchsia Florals

Of course Joan went all out on her first day back at the office after maternity leave.

Peggy's Gingham Dress

Peggy’s long preferred plaids and ginghams throughout the seven seasons of the show — and this number from Season 2 is still one of her very best.

Joan's Peter Pan-Collared Dress

Joan’s love for florals mixed perfectly with a dramatic Peter Pan collar and some seriously cool go go boots for one of her most modern looks to date.

Peggy's Pantsuit

I can’t say I honestly love this ensemble, but I do admire its guts, and the feminism behind it. And hey, Peggy’s totally working it.
