It is no secret that I believe Joan Holloway/Christina Hendricks is smoking hot. Furthermore I absolutely adore Joan...she's so sultry and sassy. The hot days of summer are finally upon us and the new Season of Mad Men is just around the corner (August). So, I thought I would put together a little guide to summer fun Joan Holloway style.
I am pretty convinced that Joan Holloway would wear a Zelda Sweetwater vintage inspired bathing suit. Personally, I think she would go with the "Jane" style with its molded cups to support her ample bosom. The delicate pink color would look fantastic with her peaches and cream complexion and the detailing would highlight her dangerous curves.
Of course, Joan would wear sunglasses. Frankly, there is a lot going on with sunglasses right now, but there always is. I don't think Joan would go for the flash of Tom Ford or for the ubiquitous Wayfarer. I think Joan would go for a slightly oversize white framed pair of sunglasses, like these ones in the Chic and Charming Amazon shop (white frame/smoke lens).
What Would Joan Drink for summer?
I think Joan would go for a Mai Tai, it is a little kitsch in that 1950s tiki bar kind of way. I'm personally a little obsessed with Mai Tais right now, but only if they're made with highest quality fresh ingredients. I don't think Joan would drink a Mai Tai out of a glass like this one, unless maybe she was somewhere tropical. I'm still kind of working on finding my favorite recipe, you can check out a bunch of Mai Tai recipes here.
