There are some television shows that just get to us. The protagonists or supporting characters may inspire us to do something different in our lives, to see the world through another perspective, to help us make decisions through watching the outcomes of their own. But let’s put all that to one side and get on to the most important part – some of them are just amazing fashion icons.
Daenerys Targaryen – Game of Thrones
Ah, Khaleesi, Queen of the Dothraki, how we salute your style. As we know, Game of Thrones is entirely fictional, but this is inclusive of the time period that it is set in. The author of the series of books, George R.R. Martin, has stated that his writings were inspired by the War of the Roses which was fought at the end of the 15th century, so we can safely assume that this is the time period that the show is trying to emulate. As such, Khaleesi’s style is quite medieval and basic, but this isn’t doesn’t mean that this is something that can’t be recreated for yourself easily enough.
Lorelai Gilmore – Gilmore Girls
The revival of the Gilmore Girls at the end of 2016 sent us a jolly reminder of all of the different fashion looks Lorelai adopted – and effortlessly pulled off every time. From grungy Metallica shirts and gorgeous wrap dresses to tie-dye shirts and shorts with long black coats (who can forget the infamous outfit she wore for Rory’s first day at Chilton?), this woman was able to pull off everything and anything and make it her own. So, for this reason alone, it’s safe to say that this is a style where you can try whatever you have been dying to give a go but too afraid to do so.
Amy Farrah Fowler – The Big Bang Theory
Not many people look towards the outcast geek of a series for fashion inspiration, but there are so many great looks that are being missed out on this way. Whereas Amy’s style relies heavily on what is more practical rather than stylish, it’s this lack of concentration on the aesthetics of the finished outfit which provides a unique look; without drawing attention to the clothes that you are wearing, you can focus more on the stylings of your hair, makeup and jewelry. The mixing and matching of plaid, patterns and stripes coupled with jeans, long skirts and thick tights (not all at the same time, of course) gives the impression that you’ve got more important things to think about than the latest trends … yet simultaneously giving off the vibes of effortless style.
