Everyone looks good on television. After all, you’d look good, too, if you had a wardrobe and hair and makeup stylist at your disposal, at your place of work. But some TV characters are especially well-known for their sartorial savvy and panache. Here are a few of the ones that not only pull in eyeballs, but spark fashion trends out in the real world.
Serena van der Woodsen - This Gossip Girl rocks urban glam style effortlessly in slim denim, tall boots and easy layers.
Jess Day on Fox’s New Girl is a teacher whose signature look includes high-waisted skirts, girly blouses, print dresses and flats, all in bold colors.
Betty Draper is just one of many stylish women on Mad Men, but there is something about her particular brand of 1960’s-era tailored elegance that is especially alluring. With her swing coats and perfectly coiffed hair, she is crisp perfection.
Emily Thorne on Revenge takes beachwear to a new level. During the day, she’s youthful simplicity in light colored, classic, feminine styles -- even when in something as casual as cotton shorts. At night, she effortlessly channels Grace Kelly in cocktail attire.
Blaine Anderson’s signature style on Glee is positively preppy, replete with a side part, loafers or boat shoes, cropped pants and bow ties.
Don Draper on Mad Men is single-handedly reviving interest in the classic two-button suit.
Carrie Bradshaw’s six seasons of Sex and The City may have come to a close, but as a fashion icon, she lives on. Carrie’s style changed over the course of the series, but it always embodied freedom, risk, and, above all, playfulness. Think of Carrie and one conjures Fendi baguette bags, mixed prints, stilettos and high-waisted short shorts.
