Retro New Year’s Cocktail Party Playlist

Full disclosure: I’ve never seen an episode of Mad Men.

But what I have seen is guys and gals everywhere going crazy for a totally swingin’ ’60s aesthetic. We’re talking tulip skirts and boatneck sweaters, cufflinks and carefully parted hair.

So why not indulge your inner Betty Draper and host a vintage New Year’s Eve fete?
