The count down is on here at Black Cat Plus and to our Mad Men Season 4 Premiere Party!  Yes, finally!  We are a little over 24 hours and counting to the premiere of Mad Men on AMC at 10:00 p.m. EST.

I cannot wait, how about you?

What I have noticed is the influence from Mad Men on Plus Size Fashion.

Look for these three main trends in plus size fashion this summer and fall :

1. The hourglass shape

2. Red lips with a matte finish.  Make-up artist Lana Horochowski usually reaches for NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($24).

3. Kitten heels with a pointy toe.  I am keeping my eye on these Stuart Weitzman pointed toe kitten heels from Zappos!

They come in Wide -even better!

I love the body hugging, waist minimizing, hourglass styles that show off our curves such as this Julianna cowl neck dress from Kiyonna!

Creating an hourglass shape allows you to show off your curves in all the right places! After all, if you’ve got it flaunt it!!

We are also seeing the Jackie O influence such as this Capelet from A People United.

Here’s how to work it so you don’t look as though you are going to a Halloween Party dressed as a Mad Men Character: Choose one or two of the influencing trends to wear for the day and you will be right in Mad Men Style!

Take a look at what is in store for Mad Men Fashion Style for Season 4!
