And the silver-screen style competition is heating up: From Serena (Blake Lively) and Blair (Leighton Meester) on Gossip Girl and Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) and Ashley Davenport (Ashley Madekwe) on Revenge to the aristocratic aesthetics of the ladies of Downtown Abbey — not to mention newcomers like the fashionable cast of 666 Park Avenue (including Ugly Betty alum Vanessa Williams) and the country strong style on Nashville joining fall’s TV lineup — the small screen is full of fashion inspiration this season.
So next time you’re standing in front of your closet with nothing to wear, just grab the remote and tune into our must-see TV picks for the fashion-obsessed…
Gossip Girl, starring real-life trendsetters Lively and Meester, is an obvious choice for wardrobe eye-candy. Whether you love Serena’s boho-hipster look or Blair’s polished prep style, the hot designers duds and cool styling make this drama a fashionista staple.
Last season’s breakout style star, Revenge, is back. The new season premiered Sunday, and we already can’t get enough of the Hampton-chic style from sexy sophisticate Emily Thorne and her well-heeled frenemy Ashley Davenport.
And there’s the return of last season’s breakout small-screen style star, Hart of Dixie. Between Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) and Lemon (Jaime King), Hart of Dixie provides a smattering of great outfits each week to satisfy any fashion palette.
But don’t overlook the sartorial influence of period dramas Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men, which have brought back retro styles from the ’20s and ’50s and ’60s respectively. The ’50s-inspired styles worn by Betty Draper (January Jones), Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), and Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks) on Mad Men even inspired a capsule collection for Banana Republic last year — and we hope to see more affordable fashion inspired from the hit’s stylish characters.
