TV/Movie Fashion Inspiration Part 2

Another year, and more fashion inspiration from TV shows and movies I’ve watched since last summer!

 

Angela, Mr Robot

 

 

Angela Moss, best friend of the protagonist of Mr Robot, and acted by Portia Doubleday, exemplifies corporate chic in her wardrobe. Her tailored outfits include classy blazers and cute collars. She looks especially divine in the color forest green, and rocks brogues/oxfords. I’ve really enjoyed watching her effortlessly preppy style in just one season of Mr Robot. A particular plus was her polished, pristine ballerina outfit, the soft hues of pale blue and white setting off her alabaster skin tone nicely.

 

Darlene, Mr Robot

 

 

Darlene Alderson, the sister of the protagonist of Mr Robot, acted by Carly Chaikin, is beguilingly sultry in short shorts and extravagant accessories, showing off her long, slender legs. She struts in daring outfits and stompy shoes. She’s a dauntless character, and it shows in her dark colors and attention-getting ensembles. Her black ballet suit is in stark contrast with Angela’s white one, giving her an even edgier look.

Rachel, Suits

 

Rachel Zane, the love interest of the protagonist of Suits, has a killer corporate look, made up of fitted midi skirts, soft sweaters, and classic blouses. Her colors fall on the neutral side, but she’s also not afraid to experiment with florals and ruffles. Her outfits scream “boss lady”, which is precisely her character. Her clothes always show off her curves, with flattering waistlines.

 

Serena, Gossip Girl

 

 

Serena van der Woodsen oozes high fashion and an upper class lady demeanor in her choice of outfits. In the winter, she wears classic trench coats belted at her slim waist, or svelte pea coats. In the summer, she rocks bright, bold color and swishy skirts. Her evening gowns are always intricately designed and never fail to fit her willowy frame like a glove.

 

Jenny, Gossip Girl

 

 

Jenny Humphrey rocks the “bad girl” persona in leather jackets, dark tights, and all-black attires. She struts in ankle booties and super-miniskirts, a leggy sight. Her impossibly long limbs are complemented by her bad ass heels.

 

Effy, Skins

 

 

Effy Stonem is an enigmatic character, and it shows in her perpetually dark clothing. She is prone to playing up her petite frame – particularly limbs – with mini miniskirts/dresses and over-sized t-shirts. She is known for her fishnet tights and solid boots.

 

Cassie, Skins

 

 

Cassie Ainsworth is a dreamer, which is highly evident in her airy-fairy clothing. She’s a lover of cutesy patterns and bright hues. Her wispy midi skirts are typically paired with bold socks over her teeny legs.Her round sunglasses really complete the look, giving her an air of childlike chic.

 

Adaline, The Age of Adaline

 

 

Adaline Bowman is a picture of grace and elegance in timeless pieces of glamour. She is exquisitely styled in velvet dresses and fancy coats. She rocks clean, straight lines as well as delicate florals.

 

Gaby, The Man from U.N.C.L.E

 

 

Gaby Teller’s sophisticated style is impeccably lady-like. Her petite figure is complemented by mini-dresses and dainty accessories. Her hats are chic, her sunglasses polished. Her outfits are refined, ivory with pops of bright color like orange and green. She favors patterns, like stripes, which give her a suave look.

 

Eilis, Brooklyn

 

 

Eilis Lacey is a true romantic, and her outfits suit her sweet, endearing demeanor. Her trademark long, fluttery, swishy skirts are winsome. Her colors are refreshing, from delicate blues and yellows and greens, to sharp whites, blacks, and grays. Her sunglasses are urbane and cosmopolitan.

The Age of Adaline is a film about a beautiful young lady who is rendered immortal and ageless after a horrific car crash, and how she struggles with love as a person who can outlive all her lovers. Blake Lively plays Adaline, the protagonist, and she is just perfect for the role.

You may remember Blake Lively as Serena in Gossip Girl, the effortlessly classy and charismatic high society girl. Similarly, Adaline was elegant and refined with impeccable style and a winsome smile. She captured and held my attention throughout the film with her air of grace and beautifully tailored style choices.

The romance was swoon-worthy. Adaline falls in love with a dashing, disarming young man, acted by Michael Huisman, better known for his portrayal of Daario Naharis in Game of Thrones. They were so pleasantly adorable together.

I feel like the film relayed an essential message of what it’s like to be alive without really living, confronting the blustering beauty of the past, and setting yourself free from your self-imposed chains.
