5 More TV Characters’ Wardrobes I’d Like to Raid

As you may recall, I wrote a post a few months ago with a list of five of my favorite TV character’s wardrobes. Well, there are just so many fashionistas on television that I decided I needed to create another post. Here are some fictional ladies, in no particular order, who I wouldn’t mind going shopping with.

Spencer Hastings (Pretty Little Liars)

I will be the first to admit that when I randomly ran across an episode of “Pretty Little Liars,” I thought Spencer was one of the moms on the show. I mean, out of the four main characters, she looks least like a teenager. That being said, I am now a full-fledged PLL fan, and I think Spencer does have a rather spectacular wardrobe. I love the random animal prints on her outfits, and her cute cardigans. She’s like a walking Anthropologie ad.

Olivia Pope (Scandal)

You cannot talk about “Scandal” without talking about Olivia Pope’s clothes. She is the master of wearing gray, black, and white. Her wardrobe is filled with Prada handbags, Gucci coats, and Dolce & Gabbana blouses. The beauty of Olivia’s wardrobe is that it is stylish, but still practical. She wears outfits that any girl could wear to work.

Lydia Martin (Teen Wolf)

I had to a do little research in order to figure out Lydia’s last name. I swear it’s never been mentioned on the show itself. In any case, Lydia wears the cutest floral dresses and quirky button downs, but always pairs them with something a little edgy – like a leather jacket or skirt.

Donna Paulson (Suits)

Donna is easily my favorite character on “Suits.” She’s sassy, she’s smart, she’s the best legal secretary you could ask for, and she’s so very stylish. Her gorgeous red hair is always curled to perfection, and her dresses are the epitome of both class and chic. Not gonna lie: in a competition between her and Rachel (who was on my previous TV character wardrobe list), Donna wins hands down.

Mellie Grant (Scandal)

Pretty much all the women on “Scandal” are immaculately dressed. First Lady Mellie Grant can often be rather evil, but her wardrobe is so sweet and dainty. She’s never without a strand of pearls, and she rocks color-coordinated cardigans and fit-and-flare dresses like nobody’s business. Plus, her beautiful hair adds an extra presidential touch.

5 TV Characters’ Wardrobes I Wish I Could Steal

1. Jess Day (New Girl)

The quirky twenty-something (thirty-something?) wears her polka dots, bows, and dresses loudly and proudly. Her outfits are whimsical, but still demure enough that you could wear them to work. I love that she wears bold colors and funny patterns, and mixes super girly elements (like the aforementioned bows) with more tailored pieces (like tailored shorts or a crisp button-down). I guess I’m not the only one infatuated with Jess’s wardrobe; there are quite a few blogs devoted to it (including Dress Like New Girl, What Was Jess Wearing?,¬†and What Would Zooey Deschanel Wear?).

2. Claire Underwood (House of Cards)

Claire Underwood is probably one of the most morally-corrupt and ice-cold characters on TV. However, her wardrobe is to die for. She’s notorious for wearing high-end designers like Zac Posen, Gucci, and L’Wren Scott, but she occasionally busts out some Reiss and Banana Republic numbers. The only downside to Claire’s closet is that all her outfits are in neutral colors: black, white, gray, blue. A different pop of color wouldn’t hurt, Claire!

3. Rachel Zane (Suits)

Rachel Zane knows how rock a pencil skirt at work. She also knows how to dress it down when she’s at home (love that cable knit sweater!). And look how polished she is when she sits for the LSAT (bottom right photo)! Stunning.

4. Abby Whelan (Scandal)

For the first two seasons of Scandal, Abby’s clothes were pretty drab. But now she’s in love with David Rosen, and it appears that her life and wardrobe are looking up. She’s ditched the oversized sweaters and replaced them with wrap dresses, funky printed pieces (Diane Von Furstenberg), and leather jackets.

5. Betty Draper (Mad Men)

Betty has to come in last place mainly because some of her outfits would look a bit crazy anywhere other than a 1960s themed party. That being said, a lot of the cocktail dresses, fitted capris, and coats Betty wears (at least in the first season or two – forgive me, but I’ve just started watching the show) would actually be quite fashionable even today. They are rather reminiscent of the Jess Day’s outfits, now that I think about it.

Monday Motivation: “Suits” Edition

One of my absolute favorite shows, the USA-Network-dramady “Suits,” is returning this week for its mid-season premiere. It’s about a hotshot Harvard-educated lawyer, Harvey Specter (played by Gabriel Macht), at a huge firm in New York City who hires a college dropout with an eidetic memory, Mike Ross (played by Patrick J. Adams), to be his associate. The problem, as you have probably already guessed, is that Mike never went Harvard – or any law school. He never took the New York State Bar, and it’s a crime to practice law without a license. So why does Harvey hire Mike? Because Mike already knows everything about the law – he’s taken the LSAT and the bar exam for other people. The eidetic memory doesn’t hurt either.

The show is a great source of some hilarious one-liners and witty bantering, but it also has its share of profound and motivational statements, too. Here are some that might make it a little easier to get though your Monday.

And if you’re curious, here’s a trailer for the first season of the show.
