Fashionably Entertaining: 3 Shows Never Go Out Of Style

Who do you turn to for fashion inspiration?

Fashion is fun, quirky, and creative. Artists, actors, and even coworkers are great sources for fashion inspiration.

We’re sharing three scripted TV series with a great eye for fashion. Get ready to binge-watch these fashionable shows!

The Bold Type

Strong female leads Jane, Sutton, and Kat are KILLING IT on this show, which revolves around a fictional women’s lifestyle magazine titled Scarlet. Inspired by Cosmo’s former editor-in-chief Joanna Cole, this show is already a blast.

The female-friendly squad builds each other up and cheers each other on, which is exactly what we need. The show also gives us a fun look inside working for a well-known lifestyle magazine – in a glitzy yet relatable way.

The fashion? Impeccable.

Scarlet writer Jane represents an edgy style with strong shoulder patterns (spiky, fluffy, cut, you name it!), plenty of dresses, stilettos, big earrings, and sometimes leather pants.

Kat Edison

Social media director Kat shows her funky side with plenty of prints and cuts that we never knew were possible, paired with some gorgeous, curly hairstyles.

Sutton Brady

Sutton, the fashion designer at heart, keeps her look polished with a punch to match her go-getter attitude. Sutton rocks light, frilly outfits, and adds a little edge with a classic moto jacket.

Jacqueline Carlyle

Jacqueline Carlyle, who guides the women through their time at the magazine, is easily recognized with her slicked back hair and her fierce shades of scarlet and black.

She literally wears the pants in the editor-in-chief chair, channeling Joanna Cole as an authoritative and fashionable figure.

Jane the Virgin

Jane Villanueva: daughter, wife, accidental mother, and relatable fashion icon. She keeps it fun and flirty with plenty of sundresses throughout the series. There’s plenty of twists and turns in this romantic dramedy meets telenovela set in Miami.

Jane is a fun, relatable character with a good head on her shoulders. She’s trying to find herself in her twenties while sticking to her morals.

Whether heroine Jane is going on a date, waitressing at the upscale Marbella Hotel, or mothering her son Mateo, she is always looking fabulous.

Her print dresses paired with flats – and sometimes heels – can easily be replicated by us viewers at home.

Let’s take a moment to remember that time when Jane and Britney Spears danced together at the Marbella Hotel.

Jane’s mischievous mama has a great sense of soft, feminine  style. She’s always wearing floral dresses, cute cutouts, and wedges.

Petra Solano

Frenemie Petra Solano has also captured our fashionable attention. She is just as serious about her business as she is about her wardrobe.

Petra’s staple items include high-waisted shorts, wedges, and flirty tops. Petra also opts for some print dresses that remain classy and appropriate for work, yet girly and fashionable enough for a night out after work.

Mad Men

Please take us back to the 60’s and era of women’s fashion! Cupcake dresses, crop tops and colorful pants, go-go boots, plus lots and lots of hairspray.

Betty Draper

Short, blow dry-curled hair, bright lipstick, and those cupcake dresses and crop tops we mentioned! Betty has been a fashion icon on the show since day 1. As a mother, wife, and friendly neighbor, she balances it all – with the highest of heels.

Megan – She completely transitions from quiet receptionist to life of the party throughout her years on the show.

Peggy Olson

As Peggy’s copywriting evolves throughout the show, so does her fashion. Mock neck dresses paired with matching heels and hats are Peggy’s go-to items.

Sally Draper

Growing up with a dad like Don Draper isn’t easy. Sally grows up right before our eyes on the show, and her fashion matures with her attitude each season.

The TV drama revolves around the lives of many different characters – so there’s plenty of fashion inspiration to go around!

What show is your go-to fashion inspiration?

These shows highlight both old and new fashion for us to get ideas from. They inspire us to craft our own sense of fashion to express our personality. We can take bits and pieces from other people and get creative with it.

Fashion is what we make of it! There’s no right or wrong thing to do.

There may be guidelines, and people will always have their opinions. But in the end, we’re the creative force behind our own look.

Do you adore a show with great fashion? Let us know in the comments!

  1. What a creative way to showcase fashion! I don’t always watch TV, but I’m guilty of reading fashion-centric stories online. If yoga pants didn’t exist, I’d be dressed to the nines, too. ;P

  2. Thanks, Jess! I’m on and off with watching TV, so a show has to really catch my attention for me to follow a series. These shows definitely have great characters and interesting fashion to get some ideas from. I hear ya on the yoga pants too. Sometimes comfort and quality is all we need!
