There are a lot of shows up for viewing on Netflix, Amazon Prime and the rest of the OTT platforms combined, presenting us with a wide range of classic and relatively new series. But what is it that allows the best ones to stand out from the crowd? Undoubtedly, the characters and in case of those who don’t miss out a good fashion moment, their cool-chic wardrobe. Speaking of which, recreating them isn’t uncommon and with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, an idea worth trying out for an at-home date night!
On that note, we rounded up the best of TV characters, ones with some of that effortless, cool style and picked out some looks that you can try for an intimate date night, Zoom call or a Galentine’s plan alike. Go on to see!
The resident style influencer from F.R.I.E.N.D.S is still referenced when it comes to putting together an effortless yet striking outfit, and we see just why. Rachel Green’s wardrobe on the show had no dearth of going-out fits and lest you forget, the 90s staple slip dresses. For your Valentine’s Day OOTN, take inspiration from the OG to get party-ready while staying in. A slip dress with a thigh-high slit, a vibrant lip colour and some jewels from your dresser, do we even say anything more!
If there was an award for the best couture sightings on shows, it would go to this queen from the Upper East Side. Serena Van Der Woodsen’s Gossip Girl wardrobe needs no introduction, especially given her hit outfits that were as distinctive as they could be. For the 14th of Feb, go all out with a glimmer-induced dress and some on-point makeup. And while you are at it, cut through the clutter you have to carry with an organiser, a mindful gift for yourself!
For those of you who have always wanted to go all OTT like our girl Carrie, there is no better time than an at-home Valentine’s Day celebration for your tutu moment to shine! Go the same route in terms of length or add a few inches to the skirt, opting for a full-fledged tiered tulle version. Heels optional but highly recommended.
Ladies, if you still haven’t had a chance to catch up with the gem that is Killing Eve, we suggest you rush to your computer screens right away. Jodie Comer’s portrayal of Villanelle, an assassin, is unlike anything you may have ever seen. Add to it the cold-blooded antagonist’s wardrobe that you will want in on. For now, though, we suggest going the embroidered route in a bomber like hers, adding some accessories to take it up a notch.
Scandal may be a tense political drama-thriller but no one can deny that Olivia Pope’s choice of outerwear on the show keeps on getting better. If you are looking forward to keeping it chic while staying warm, a vibrant red coat like hers, layered on a matching top might do the trick. Pair . with your favourite pants or shop for one which will work well into your valentine day outfit.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s given name in the series is never divulged but her black jumpsuit from the award-winning series Fleabag had a lasting impact and is still going strong. Featuring a plunging, cut-out neckline and wide-legged detail, the outfit from a label named Love saw an upward hike in purchases. The U.K.-based store doesn’t ship to India but we did find a version you could do with on Valentine’s date night and after. Don’t forget the must-haves to make it even better.
And one for the Riverdale fans. You didn’t think we were going to leave this out, did you! Veronica’s sartorial takes on the show are many but we decided to pick one out for those who plan to stick to their trusted pyjamas. Trust us, a top layered with a textured jacket à la Veronica is all you need to upgrade your PJs while staying in for a movie night with your partner or group of girls. Shop specifics below.
