We're mad for January Jones' style--can you blame us? The beloved actress of AMC's hit series Mad Men has perfected the art of dressing, whether she's off the clock or on the red carpet. When Jones is running errands with baby son Xander or heading to the airport, she expertly layers easy, laid-back pieces, and accents her look with menswear-inspired oxfords or a woven fedora for extra intrigue. But when she's attending an awards show or premiere, Jones is known to turn up the bombshell factor in bold colours and risk-taking silhouettes. This combination of noteworthy nonchalance and fashion-forward confidence is precisely why we asked Jones to curate her spring essentials as this month's Guest Editor, so click through to find out what's on her wish list.
Custom Rose Gold Australian Opal & Ruby Ring ($2250, 424.625.5557)
“My favourite jewellery right now is from my friend Lori Heuring's line called Ivy Diamond Cole,” Jones says. While she loves the brand’s rose gold bar earrings, the actress is also smitten with this luxe cocktail ring.
The Patrick Melrose Novels: Never Mind, Bad News, Some Hope, and Mother’s Milk by Edward St. Aubyn
In between takes you’re likely to find Jones enjoying The Patrick Melrose Novels, a series of five witty books--this volume is comprised of the first four books--that chronicle the titular character's dysfunctional life from childhood to middle age.
When spring arrives, Jones swaps Chanel’s Sycomore Perfume ($130)--her favourite fall fragrance--for Comme des Garcons’ light and fresh Odeaur 53 Eau De Toilette.
Cire Top ($1215), Cire Skirt ($830), Leather Gloves ($550), Crystal Necklace ($550), Crustal Bracelet ($395), Cracked Leather Bag ($1450), and Satin Shoes ($695), all available at select Miu Miu boutiques.
It’s easy to see why Jones is drawn to Miu Miu’s ladylike designs for spring, especially since so many of the pieces look perfectly suited for a modern-day Betty Francis.
Panama Hat ($58)
On sunny days, Jones reaches for a straw hat--usually a fedora--as the perfect finishing touch to her off-duty looks.
Hayden Sunglasses ($285)
If you see Jones wearing sunglasses, chances are they’re Derek Lam. “The line has some amazing classic frames that are original, but not too flashy,” Jones says. “I carry a black frame and a brown frame in my handbag, so depending on what I'm wearing, I have a pair to go with everything.”
The Ellsworth Jeans ($209)
“My favourite jeans at the moment are MiH,” Jones says. “They have the best fit and give you a nice shape.”
Sunscreen for Face SPF 20 ($160)
When asked about her beauty routine, Jones called out Sisley Paris as one of her product go-tos. “They have incredible creams for day and night, incredible masks for moisture and plumping, and a great, strong SPF for every day, which is a must,” Jones says.
Striped Top Handle Tote ($2030)
Jones has recently been spotted carrying Rochas’ Leti Bag ($1955, available here in Nude), but she’s also got her eye on the brand’s covetable Striped Top Handle Tote. “It has great compartments for everything you need and is perfect for spring and summer,” Jones says.
Chroma Reflect Masque ($54)
How does Jones maintain her voluminous blonde tresses? “I use a lot of masks for my hair, and Kerastase has the best ones for colour and moisture,” Jones says.
