Fashions of today’s popular television shows.
The average person watches their favorite nighttime TV shows in their pajamas or in sweatpants and a t-shirt, while longing to have the wardrobe that their favorite actress or actor has on the show. Fashion plays a huge part nowadays in television shows. A lot of people get their style tips of the latest fashions from their favorite TV show. So, let’s take a look at the different shows that influence the style of today.
Ever since “Gossip Girl” aired early this year, young women have been copying the fashions on the show. The girls on “Gossip Girl” only wear the best in fashion. Knee-high boots, tights and tunic dresses are common fashion staples for the girls on the show. Urban Outfitters is a popular place for the clothes seen on “Gossip Girl,” even selling the leggings and knee-high tights that Serena has worn on the show. Accessories also play a big part in the fashion. Layered necklaces are a big trend. A Ralph Lauren belt works good for giving a waist when wearing a tunic top. The must-have handbag is the Coach Legacy bag, which comes with all the trends of chunky buckles and vintage leather.
For a woman who is slightly older, she may look at the TV show “Desperate Housewives” for her fashion tips. The women on “Desperate Housewives” – especially Edie and Gabrielle – are always decked out in the latest fashions. Summer dresses by Chloe are often seen on the women. Pair them with a pair of Jimmy Choos shoes and you’ll be a desperate housewife in the making. For a more casual look, get a pair of Beverly Jeans or Seven For All Mankind jeans and pair them with a Nannette Lepore blouse or camisole. The clothes on “Desperate Housewives” have a wide range of styles. You can keep it sexy like Edie or more casual and put together like Bree.
When looking for fashion tips for guys, tune in to “How I Met Your Mother.” The character Barney Stinson is the epitome of a well-dressed man. Whether you are a woman looking to fix your man’s wardrobe, or you are a man and you want to dress in the latest style, Barney gives you plenty of ideas on how to dress for a guy. He can be seen wearing $400 Prada dress shirts. Never seen dressed down on the show, he is always sporting the latest styles in business wear, although he is able to go from the office to the club and still look good. Most of his outfits are tailored suits. Some of the brand names he wears are Dolce and Gabanna and Marc Jacobs .
It can be quite frustrating to look at the actors on TV and wish that you had their wardrobe, but don’t get too frustrated. Trends change so much and so often; from the beginning of the season to the season finale, their clothes have probably dramatically changed styles. I say splurge on your basics and go cheap with the trends. If you want to invest $200 for a nice white button-down shirt, then go ahead, but buy the $5 tights from Target.
