Inspired by Betty Draper’s picture-perfect riding habit from the preview of next week’s Mad Men (last few seconds of video), I’ve gone in search of equestrian themed clothes and accessories.
The jacket, of course, is paramount. It should be simple and fitted, three or four buttons.
Not too literal, but still captures the feel. Banana Republic, $150
Usually, nobody does “equestrian” like Ralph Lauren. But he seems to be off his game with the new fall offerings. Way over the top.
A bit too Trophy-Wife-At-Her-First-Riding-Lesson for my taste.
This is better, but you can probably find something similar for less than $159.
Mini-bit links necklace from Talbot’s, $58.
The good news is that riding boots are still hot and decent ones are easy to find.
Geox “Ascot” boot, $259.
Franco Sarto, $198.95.
A slim riding pant is a nice touch, this one from Lauren by Ralph Lauren is $89.50.
But as with any “inspired” look, it’s best not to get too literal.
The Pony Club girls will giggle when they see you wearing these to the supermarket.
Pickings are still a bit slim; I’ll revisit the stables again once more of the fall styles are available online.
