Small Screen Fashion: A Means of Inspiration

Where better to look for fashion inspiration than today’s hottest television shows? We’re here to show you how to give your outfits a boost with some primetime-inspired polish. With the help of these dynamic characters who are fashion movers and shakers on the small screen, your look will be amped-up in no time.

Pretty Little Liars’ Aria Montgomery:

While they’re not known for their honesty, these fashion-forward “Liars” are pretty candid in one area: how to trend set. Although her personality tends to be more subdued, Aria’s edgy style is anything but. With a funkier, darker wardrobe, this girl knows how to transform skulls and spikes from punk and trashy to classy and chic. Aria’s vogue sense of eclecticism and artsy vibe sets her apart from her Rosewood peers.

PLL‘s Spencer Hastings:

Another member of the PLL clique, Spencer, takes sophistication to a whole new level. Her look is a mix of Gossip Girl prep and Audrey Hepburn class. Her brilliant quips match her equally brilliant blazer and oxford and chiffon and lace combinations. Just as she reigns Queen Bee in battles of scholasticism (Spencer talks about applying ED to good old Penn in some of the episodes!), Spencer “sexifies” smartness and dominates the Rosewood fashion scene.

Bunheads’ Michelle Sims:

Buzzing between ballet rehearsals and local eateries can be hard work for a former Las Vegas showgirl, but Michelle Sims has mastered the athletic-chic look. With cute crop tees and yoga pants galore, Michelle completes many ensembles with classic Toms or combat boots. She makes transitioning from day to night — from barres to bars — an easy task.

The Mindy Project’s Mindy Kaling:

Calling all budding doctors, lab rats, and those who foresee a future with forceps and/or scalpels: Mindy is your girl. As an onscreen female OB-GYN, Mindy sports smarts and style in the sciences. She balances big brains with schoolgirl-esque charm, and bright patterns with bold colors for a look that’s totally her own.

New Girl’s Jess Day:

Because who doesn’t love all things a-dork-able? The many quirky, polka-dot-laden looks of Jessica Day make her all the more love-able. Jess’ fashion is marked by complementary color schemes. In one episode, she dares to pair an emerald green dress with a bright plum sweater and skinny belt. For added class, skirts and dresses with volume are a must for this school teacher. And, of course, her fun ensembles are never complete without her trademark glasses.

Glee’s Rachel Berry:

Long gone are the days of schoolgirl knee highs and argyle. With Glee’s new season came a sexier, bolder Berry. Rachel’s fashion took a turn for the urban with her enrollment in a New York performing arts school. As a girl who goes after what she wants, we can all get excited over her purposeful fashion moves. This season, Rachel Berry has turned thigh high socks into a city chic statement when paired with patterned shorts, reminiscent of a day outside a Parisian café.

Take a cue from one of these stylish small-screen divas– you’ll be more than ready for your close-up.
