Five Things This TV Season Made Us Want to Wear
BY: Kelly MacDowell | Apr 30, 2014
In this new golden age of television, the fashion choices have been as smart as the scripts. Here, we’ve chosen five looks from our favorite shows, along with suggestions for making them your own. 1. Flared denim on The Americans Everyone and their mom has been living in skinny jeans for the past several years, so it’s refreshing to see Elizabeth Jennings wearing high-waisted, flared denim. These kick-flare jeans are similar to hers, but their dark rinse keeps them from looking like they belong in a Jordache commercial. Keri Russell in The Americans | Marrakesh jeans ($189) from MiH Jeans 2. Babydoll dress on Mad Men Almost every episode of Mad Men has at least one “OMG” style moment, and recently it was secretary Shirley’s super-short hemline. Embrace the impending warm weather with a drop-waisted mini dress in a psychedelic print. Sola Bamis and Elisabeth Moss in Mad Men | I Heart babydoll dress in Blush Scarf ($152) from Lovers + Friends 3. Royal gowns on Game of Thrones Where better to find wedding-dress inspiration than in Westerosi detailing? Mimic the Queen Regent’s style with this draped-sleeve gown and a braided crown, but skip the expression that’s dripping with murderous intent. Lena Headey in Game of Thrones | Cascading long dress ($209.99) from Mango 4. White suits on Scandal Olivia Pope always looks stunning, even if her job is about as stressful as auctioning off a lot of ticking bombs. Her all-white look is perfect for spring, but those of us who don’t see the president on a daily basis might prefer the more casual silhouette of this push-up sleeve blazer and pleated trousers. Kerry Washington in Scandal | Linen blend straight blazer ($109.99) and pleated crepe trousers ($59.99), both from Mango 5. Gold sneakers on The Voice Usher has worn his faux 14-karat kicks on several episodes this season, and co-coach Adam Levine has never missed an opportunity to poke fun at them. We, however, would gladly hit our buttons for this Velcro-strapped pair. Consider them a unique alternative to gold gladiator sandals this summer.
