Jessica Day - New Girl
Quirky, fun and sweet, Jess is a 31-year-old school teacher. We see her journey where she moves in with three guys in a warehouse apartment after breaking up with her long-term boyfriend trying to make a new life for herself. Although at core an optimistic, Jess is not afraid to be herself, even if it makes her stand out from the conventional crowd. Jess’s positivity reflects well in her choice of bright colours and her modesty, through the huge array of tulip midi-skirts and dresses. A sometimes clumsy person she avoids high heels and usually dons herself in kitten heels of flat ballerinas. If you’re someone who relates to the hopeful honesty in Jess you could try minimalistic silhouettes with bright elements.
Set in a place, where people end up after they die, the Good Place is a comedy series about exploring human ethics, and then in the midst of the ethical chaos is Eleanor, a character who is conflicted between good and bad. Having said that Eleanor is a straight-up badass, charismatic, and sarcastically funny. She also has a rather negligee attitude and doesn’t stress over much things in life. Her dressing reflects the same, she looks effortlessly good, in neutral but well-fitting attires, like sweatshirts, denim jackets, plaid shirts, and of course, classic blue jeans.
Based in the marvel universe, Jessica Jones has superhuman abilities and does stuff like finding a mortal enemy and being a vigilante. But when seen on more human values, Jessica is a supremely intelligent person who doesn’t depend on anyone and likes to work alone. She is determined towards her goals and will achieve them no matter what. She has a strong, sometimes rough, vibe about her which is evident in her fashion choices - like black being her soul colour. Her wardrobe is full of boyfriend denim, black boots, leather jackets, turtlenecks, grey scarves, and of course, chic aviators.
Midge Maisel is one of those very rare characters you see getting portrayed on screen: feminine, witty and perfectionist, Midge’s life seems to fall apart when her husband leaves her, but she finds herself attracted to stand-up comedy and works towards making a career out of it. Midge is a person with the best of fashion sense, who keeps her weight and health in check, and has the most sorted wardrobe. Though the show is based in the late 50s, if you really relate to the intellectual sophisticated Miriam you can draw inspiration from her style - body-con outfits, dressing with similar tones, the perfect hair, special outfits picked for special nights, and some special love for pearls.
How could we not talk about the phenomenal show that won 6 Emmy’s this year? The writer-actor of the show purposely chose not to name the protagonist so that the title is emphasized even more. The character is drawn from women in society thought of as unlikable, because of their impulsively, non-serious, and messy behaviour. Fleabag is someone who is astonishingly self-aware of herself and even if struggling in her personal or love life, is always primly dressed in chic trench coats and red wine lipstick defining her strength to keep it all together even in the worst times. Fleabag’s attire is as Parisian as it can get, with the chicest outfits like the iconic black jumpsuit!
