Mad Men and Banana Republic Team Up

While we were all sitting here lusting after the fashions from Mad Men, we never actually thought they were styles we could still be wearing in 2010.

But Banana Republic is teaming up with the hit AMC series to show us how we can rock the Mad Men look.

This is such an amazing collaboration. It’s actually the second year the two have teamed up, but Mad Men has been growing so much in popularity, that the buzz will surely be even stronger this year.

So, what exactly is this Mad Men/Banana Republic collaboration all about?

Banana Republic is getting set to launch its Mad About Style campaign and style guide. This will show you how you can dress like your favorite Mad Men characters, both for your 9-5 job, and for your after-work outings.

Mad Men’s costume designer, Janie Bryant, and Banana Republic designer, Simon Kneen, will also be posting video blogs that will assist you with your style-emulating attempts.

The Mad About Style campaign is also giving away a walk-on role in a Mad Men episode. All you have to do is pick up a "ticket" at any Banana Republic store between July 21 and August 11, then you can go home and upload photos of yourself wearing your best Mad Men look.

As if we needed something to get us more excited about the upcoming season of Mad Men – now we can’t wait to get to Banana Republic and start dressing like our favorite characters!
