Perfect housewife Betty represents a sleek, finished look that's all about poise and respectability.

Her look is less overtly sexual than Joan's but much more polished than Peggy's.

The Grace Kelly-inspired image is tied in with her passion for entertaining and socialising making it a perfect look for the upcoming party season.

"Betty loves prom dresses that nip in her tiny waist line and give her a cup cake silhouette with huge layered skirts," says Emma.

"It's a style that works for most shapes and the prom dress is great for parties especially over Christmas. Petite shapes should opt for a shorter length so as they're not overpowered. Debut or Coast have excellent options for this look."

Getting the Betty look right is all down to getting the classic, expensive looking accessories right. Pearl earrings are a must as well as evening gloves and fur boleros.

Colours are clean with plenty of lemon and ice blue or florals capture the stylish suburban housewife vibe and are huge this season.
