I love TV shows for a lot of different reasons, but I often find myself getting distracted by the beautiful wardrobes more than anything else. If you’re a fan of television, but more than that, you love to get inspired by the amazing style you see on the show, this list is sure to give you some inspiration. You may already be familiar with most of these shows (by familiar I mean that you’ve had hours-long binge-watching sessions) but if you aren’t, these shows are sure to inspire your style as you watch them!
Salvador Perez, the costume designer on The Mindy Project and president of the Costume Designer’s Guild, wasn’t nominated for a Costume Design Emmy for no reason. Every character’s style on the show is amazing, but Mindy Lahiri’s wardrobe is truly a scene-stealer that you’ll find yourself coveting within minutes of watching the show!
I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve never seen an episode of Scandal (yes, I know, I’m basically a unicorn. However, every single time I see a picture of Olivia Pope’s gorgeous wardrobe on the show, I’m immensely inspired by everything she wears. If you haven’t lusted over Olivia Pope’s wardrobe, I’m pretty sure you’re not human.
During Sex and the City’s prime, it was a show that influenced almost the entire world with its amazing style. No matter what your style was, there was a girl that inspired everyone’s style. Although a few pieces have gone out of style, it’s amazing just how many outfits are timeless and still in style today.
If you’re still pretty young and love Sex and the City but think you’re too young to wear the clothes on the show, give The Carrie Diaries a chance for your style inspiration. It’s the prequel to Sex and the City, and although the show takes place in the 80s, the style is still so relevant today!
Zooey Deschanel almost entirely introduced a new style into the world when she began starring as Jess Day on New Girl. Her overly girly, so cute it’s almost sickening style has been made fun of, but it’s just so much fun to wear that how could you not fall in love with her style?
For two best friends raising a baby together, Maggie and Emma are still pretty good at finding time to put amazing outfits together. Maggie and Emma’s styles are both pretty simple and J.Crew-esque, and they’ll definitely inspire your wardrobe!
Rachel Green is one of those few characters that will remain a style icon forever, so of course tons of people pull style inspiration from her. That being said, I think Monica and Phoebe’s style was just as amazing. If you’re looking to be inspired by some 90s style, a few episode of Friends should do the trick!
What’s your favorite TV show to be inspired by when it comes to your style? I’m definitely most inspired by The Mindy Project and Mindy Lahiri’s wardrobe. In fact, I often find myself buying pieces that she’s worn, or simply buying something because it seems like something she’d wear. Let me know if you have a show that inspires you in the same way in the comments!
